  1. 1. Preparation of leaf mitochondria and studies on mitochondrial photorespiratory reactions

    Author : Per Gardeström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; leaf mitochondria; photorespiration; aqueous two-phase system; Percoli gradient; cytochromes; glycine decarboyxlase; serine hydroxymethyltransferase; inhitors of photorespiration;

    Abstract : A procedure for the preparation of spinach leaf mitochondria was developed. The procedure combines differential centrifugation, partition in dextran- polyethyleneglycol two-phase system and Percoli density gradient centri- fugation. The different steps separate the material mainly according to size, surface properties and density, respectively. READ MORE

  2. 2. Labeling, tagging and charging - Long standing issues in bioenergetics addressed with novel techniques

    Author : Tobias Gustavsson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; WrbA; site specific labeling; fusion proteins; spectro electrochemistry; succinate quinone reductase; NADH quinone oxidoredictase; cytochromes; Respiratory chain;

    Abstract : Understanding the molecular details of bioenergetic processes is fundamentally important. Defects in the mitochondrial energy metabolism can lead to untimely apoptosis and thus cause serious degenerative human diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. c Cytochromes as Electron Carriers in Microbial Chlorate Respiration

    Author : Anna Smedja Bäcklund; Thomas Nilsson; Pia Ädelroth; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; c cytochrome; chlorate reduction; electron transport; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Microbial respiration of oxochlorates is important for the biotreatment of effluents from industries where oxochlorates are produced or handled. Several bacterial species are capable to use perchlorate and/or chlorate as an alternative electron acceptor in absence of oxygen. READ MORE

  4. 4. Discovery of Novel Fatty Acid Dioxygenases and Cytochromes P450 : Mechanisms of Oxylipin Biosynthesis in Pathogenic Fungi

    Author : Inga Hoffmann; Ernst H Oliw; Alan R Brash; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fusion protein; Linoleate diol synthase; Allene oxide synthase; Cyclooxygenase; Oxygenase; HPLC; Mass spectrometry; Hydroperoxide isomerase; Aspergillus; Fusarium oxysporum; Pharmaceutical Biochemistry; Farmaceutisk biokemi; Farmaceutisk farmakologi; Pharmaceutical Pharmacology; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : Dioxygenase-cytochrome P450 (DOX-CYP) fusion enzymes are present in diverse human and plant pathogenic fungi. They oxygenate fatty acids to lipid mediators which have regula­tory functions in fungal development and toxin production. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enzymes and electron transport in microbial chlorate respiration

    Author : Jan Bohlin; Thomas Nilsson; Lars-Gunnar Franzén; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Ideonella dechloratans; c cytochromes; chlorate; chlorate reductase; chlorite dismutase; heterologous expression; heme reconstitution; electron transport; oxidoreductas; Chemistry; Kemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Microbial chlorate respiration plays an important role in the turnover of oxochlorates in nature and industrial waste management. This thesis deals with the characterization of the molecular components of chlorate respiration in Ideonella dechloratans. READ MORE
