  1. 11. Modeling Genome Evolution Creation, Change and Destruction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mats Pettersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Molecular biology; Theotretical biology; Population genetics; Stochastic modeling; Genome evolution; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Historically, evolution has been studied either by looking at morphological traits in living organisms and the fossil record, or by using bioinformatics and comparative genomics. While highly useful for deducing evolutionary history, these approaches are not particularly well suited for studying the mechanisms of evolution. READ MORE

  2. 12. Mitochondrial Evolution Turning Bugs into Features

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olof Karlberg; Siv Andersson; Michael Gray; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : The bacterial origin of mitochondria from an ancient endosymbiosis is now widely accepted and the mitochondrial ancestor is generally believed to belong to the bacterial subdivision α-proteobacteria. The high fraction of mitochondrial proteins encoded in the nucleus has commonly been explained with a massive transfer of genes from the genome of the ancestral mitochondrion. READ MORE

  3. 13. Urban Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Claes Andersson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : In nature, objects formed from a dynamics on one level often form yet new objects and new dynamics on a new level. This process generates a hierarchical organization of nature that is particularly tall for objects that are of biological or human origin. READ MORE

  4. 14. The Purpose of Evolution the 'struggle for existence' in the Russian-Jewish press 1860-1900

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis

    Author : Joakim Philipson; Per-Arne Bodin; David Gaunt; Gabriella Safran; [2008]

    Abstract : In late 19th century Russia, Darwinism was viewed as a measuring-rod of modernity. Thus, the Jewish reception of Darwinism may serve as an indicator of the extent to which the Jews in Russia were part of the modernization of Russian society. READ MORE

  5. 15. Haptoglobin: Biosynthesis and Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Krzysztof B. Wicher; Erik Fries; John W. M. Creemers; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; haptoglobin; cleavage; C1r-LP; evolution; vertebrate; endoplasmic; Golgi; complement; Molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Haptoglobin (Hp) is a serum protein known for its ability to form a tight complex with hemoglobin (Hb) and thereby inhibiting the oxidative activity of Hb. Mammalian Hp is synthesized as a precursor (proHp) that undergoes proteolytic cleavage by a previously unidentified enzyme in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). READ MORE
