  1. 1. Fatty Acid Composition in Skeletal Muscle Influence of Physical Activity and Dietary Fat Quality

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Agneta Andersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Skeletal muscle; phospholipids; triglycerides; fatty acids; physical activity; lipid peroxidation; dietary fat quality; n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Geriatrics; geriatrik;

    Abstract : Insulin sensitivity is related to the fatty acid profile of skeletal muscle. The aim of this thesis was to investigate whether physical activity and dietary fat quality, independent of each other, influence the fatty acid composition of the skeletal muscle lipids. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lipid Vesicle Fusion: Investigation, Generation and Manipulation of Cell-Membrane Mimics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lisa Simonsson; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diffusion; spreading lipid bilayers; cell mimic; micromanipulation; lipid bilayer; microfluidics; site-specificity; DNA; membrane-receptor interactions; total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy; model system; self-assembly; TIRF microscopy; FRET; exocytosis; vesicles; fluorescence resonance energy transfer; biomembranes; amperometry; membrane fusion;

    Abstract : Membrane fusion is essential for nerve-cell communication, for protein transport between cell organelles and the cell-membrane and for enabling the merger between virus and host membranes during virus infection. In this work, cell-membrane mimics were constructed and evaluated as models for studies of the membrane-fusion process. READ MORE

  3. 3. Formation of Mesoporous Materials and their use as Lipid Bilayer Supports

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Wallin; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tethered lipid bilayers; meso-ordered PEG-DA hydrogels; dendrimers; porous silica and titania; lipid bilayers; biosensing;

    Abstract : Mesoporous materials have acquired great scientific interest in various applications; something that is largely due to that their properties, such as pore size, pore orientation, material composition and surface chemistry, can be controlled to a large extent. One idea, which has been investigated in this thesis, is to use mesoporous materials as supports for lipid bilayers and by doing so fabricate devices that mimic the cell wall and at the same time has sufficient mechanical robustness for practical use.

  4. 4. Plant lipid transfer proteins Evolution, expression and function

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Monika Edstam; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The plant non-specific lipid transfer proteins (nsLTPs) are known for the ability to transfer different lipids in vitro, but their in vivo functions have not yet been elucidated. They seem to play a role in the defense against biotic and abiotic stresses; the gene expression of nsLTPs is often upregulated when exposed to stresses. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of early probiotic supplementation in a pediatric setting Focus on body composition, metabolism and inflammation

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Frida Karlsson Videhult; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lactobacillus paracasei ssp. paracasei F19; infants; children; growth; body composition; metabolism; follow-up; Pediatrics; pediatrik;

    Abstract : We aimed to determine the short- and long-term effects on growth, body composition, metabolic and inflammatory markers following supplementation with the probiotic Lactobacillus paracasei ssp. paracasei F19 (LF19) during weaning. READ MORE
