    Abstract : ABSTRACTCities throughout Asia have experienced unprecedented economic development over the past decades. In many cases this has contributed to their rapid and uncontrolled growth, which has resulted in a multiplicity of problems, including rapid population increase, enhanced environmental pollution, collapsing traffic systems, dysfunctional waste management, and rapid increases in the consumption of energy, water and other resources.

  2. 2. Mitochondrial Energy Metabolism : Kgd4 is a novel subunit of the α-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase complex

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Manfred Heublein; Martin Ott; Flavia Fontanesi; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mitochondria; α-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase; Kgd4; Krebs cycle; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Mitochondria are essential organelles of eukaryotic cells and are responsible for their energy metabolism. The citric acid cycle, a chain of redox reactions in the mitochondrial matrix, is a central metabolic hub. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy Metabolic Stress Syndrome Impact of Physical Activity of Different Intensity and Duration

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Stefan Branth; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Medicine; energy; ATP; metabolism; nutrition; body-composition; physical-activity; stress; insulin-resistance; ion-pumps; intracellular swelling and -shrinkage; taurine; reactive oxygen species; Medicin;

    Abstract : All living cell functions require an ongoing supply of energy derived from carbohydrates, lipids and proteins with their own pathways of breakdown. All of them end up in the oxidation of reduced coenzymes, yielding chemically-bound energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). READ MORE

  5. 5. Perinatal Energy Substrate Metabolism Glucose Production and Lipolysis in Pregnant Women and Newborn Infants with Particular Reference to Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Barbro Diderholm; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatrics; Lipolysis; Glucose; Newborn infant; Pregnant women; IUGR; Insulin; Stable isotopes; Pediatrik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Paediatric medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Pediatrisk medicin;

    Abstract : Glucose is the most important fetal nutrient and the production of this substrate increases in the pregnant woman. In the last trimester the increased insulin resistance directs energy substrates to the fetus. Fetal growth is sometimes disturbed, often without an obvious explanation. READ MORE
