  1. 1. Milk Folates: Characterisation and Availability

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Karin Wigertz; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; availability; ileostomy model; in vitro; HPLC; folate-binding protein; Milk; folates; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : With the ultimate goal to study milk folate bioavailability, a reverse-phase HPLC technique was developed and compared with a radioprotein binding assay. All methods showed similar ranges for folates in cow’s milk, with the variation attributed to seasonal variations and the use of different starter cultures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fetal Outcome in Experimental Diabetic Pregnancy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sheller Zabihi; Ulf Eriksson; Michael Welsh; Elisabeth (Lisa) Persson; [2008]
    Keywords : Cell biology; Rat; Mouse; TG; KO; Diabetes in Pregnancy; Embryo; Folic acid; Superoxide dismutase; Catalase; Glutathione peroxidase; Vascular endothelial growth factor-A; Folate binding protein-1; Bax; Bcl-2; Caspase-3; P53; Pax-3; Blood flow; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Women with pregestational diabetes have a 2-5 fold increased risk of giving birth to malformed babies compared with non-diabetic women. Diabetes-induced oxidative stress in maternal and embryonic tissues has been implicated in the teratogenic process. READ MORE

  3. 3. A crystallographic view of egg-sperm interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Hamed Sadat; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Animal reproduction is a heavily studied biological event, however our knowledge regarding the molecular basis of the recognition between gametes – egg and sperm – still remains very incomplete. In particular, it is currently unclear whether protein epitopes important for fertilization have been conserved among different species during evolution, and why gamete interaction proteins generally are subjected to strong positive Darwinian selection.

  4. 4. Yolk sac morphology and uterine blood flow are associated with fetal outcome in diabetes pregnancy

    University dissertation from Biomedicum,Uppsala

    Author : Sheller Zabihi; [2007]
    Keywords : Diabetes; yolk sac; embryo; gene expression; blood flow; folic acid; SOD; apoptosis;

    Abstract : Women with pregestational diabetes have a 3-5 times increased risk of giving birth to malformed babies compared with non-diabetic women. The malformations are likely to be induced before the seventh week of pregnancy, when the yolk sac is partly responsible for the transfer of metabolites to the embryo, and the uterine blood flow to the implantation site determines the net amount of nutrients available to the conceptus.
