  1. 1. Towards New Generation of Hemoglobin-Based Blood Substitutes

    Author : Sandeep Chakane; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Keywords : hemoglobin; Fetal hemoglobin; Hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier; DNA cleavage; comet assay;

    Abstract : Blood transfusion is a clinically significant and crucial process, which saves millions of lives every year. However,shortage of donated blood and the risk of virus transmission through transfusible blood seriously affect theavailability of the blood. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Hemoglobin Normalization with Epoetin in Chronic Kidney Disease

    Author : Hans Furuland; Björn Wikström; Torbjörn Linde; Peter Barany; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Internal medicine; Anemia; blood viscosity; cardiac output; chronic kidney disease; renal dialysis; dialysis adequacy; erythopoietin; heart rate variability; hemoglobin; hemorheology; hypertension; kidney transplantation; Kt V; left ventricular hypertrophy; Quality of Life; Invärtesmedicin; Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CDK), contributes to reduced Quality of Life (QoL) and is associated with cardiovascular disease, morbidity and mortality. Epoetin raises hemoglobin (Hb) and increases QoL and physical exercise capacity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biochemical and Physiological Characterization of Nonsymbiotic Plant Hemoglobins

    Author : Nélida Leiva; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hemoglobin; Non-symbiotic hemoglobin; Sugar beet; Ligand binding; Nitric oxide; Gene expression; Gene overexpression; Poplar; Arabidopsis; Lepidium campestre.;

    Abstract : Hemoglobins (Hb) are usually associated with blood in humans. However, these proteins are widely distributed among living organisms. In plants the most known group are the leghemoglobins. Still, other Hbs that not participate in symbiosis are also found. READ MORE

  4. 4. Alpha-1-microglobulin: Innate defence against pathological oxidation

    Author : Magnus Gram; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alpha-1-microglobulin; pathological oxidation; hemoglobin; heme; radiation; oxidation; ROS; hemoglobin and heme antagonist; radical scavenger;

    Abstract : Oxidative stress has been implicated as an important factor in the progression of many diseases. An imbalance in the redox-system may cause oxidation of cells and molecules, which might subsequently lead to tissue damage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vitreoscilla hemoglobin. In vitro mutagenesis and transcript profiling to improve its biotechnological usefulness

    Author : Charlotte Andersson; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemical technology; Biokemisk teknik; gene expression analysis; transcript profiling; microarray; DNA chips; microaerobic; hypoxia; oxygen-limited; bacterial hemoglobin; Escherichia coli; Vitreoscilla hemoglobin VHb ;

    Abstract : Vitreoscilla is an obligate aerobic bacterium found in oxygen-poor environments such as stagnant ponds and decaying vegetable matter. Vitreoscilla induces the production of a homodimeric hemoglobin (VHb) when subjected to oxygen-limiting conditions. READ MORE
