  1. 1. Membrane-Polymer Interactions in Lipid Vesicles

    Author : Ilona Wegrzyn; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lipid nanotube; liposome; multifunctional pipette; PNIPAAm; lipid bilayer; giant unilamellar vesicle;

    Abstract : Membrane related biological processes are commonly investigated in artificial biomimetic experimental systems. One of the most versatile models is based upon giant unilamellar phospholipid vesicles (liposomes), which are artificially generated spherical lipid structures in an aqueous environment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lipid peroxidation in vivo Evaluation and application of methods for measurement

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Södergren; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; lipid peroxidation; hydroperoxides; F2-isoprostanes; MDA; prostaglandins; measurement; carbon tetrachloride; vitamin E; dietary fat quality; rapeseed oil; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Geriatrics; geriatrik;

    Abstract : Lipid peroxidation is thought to be an important factor in the pathophysiology of a number of diseases and in the process of ageing, but its measurement in vivo has been difficult. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate methods for measurement of lipid peroxidation in vivo that are suitable for clinical investigations, and to apply these methods in animal and human studies investigating basal conditions and situations associated with increased lipid peroxidation.

  3. 3. Mesoporous supported lipid bilayers

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Claesson; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; QCM-D; Vesicle; AFM; Titania; FRAP; Lipid bilayer; Silica; Mesoporous;

    Abstract : AbstractLipid bilayers are commonly used as simplified model systems of living cell membranes. They have shown to be important components in the development of biosensing devices where the bilayer acts as a host for transmembrane proteins, such as ion channels, that are utilized as sensing elements.

  5. 5. Interfacial Properties of Lipid Liquid Crystalline Nanoparticles

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Pauline Vandoolaeghe; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interaction; adsorption; surface; peptide; bilayer; cubic phase; monoolein; cubosome; lipid; liquid crystalline nanoparticles; ellipsometry; neutron reflectivity; QCM-D; SAXD;

    Abstract : Lipid liquid crystalline nanoparticles are studied for their potential as biocompatible carriers for pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic applications. Their potential as delivery vehicles is due to their nanometer size, their controllable structure and physical properties and their large carrying capacity of a wide range of molecules. READ MORE
