  1. 1. Sperm Membrane Channels, Receptors and Kinematics Using boar spermatozoa for drug toxicity screening

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Alejandro Vicente Carrillo; Heriberto Rodríguez-Martínez; Karl-Eric Magnusson; Rudolf Rigler; Vesa Loitto; Stefan Arver; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Plasma membrane; membrane channels; membrane receptors; kinematics; 3Rprinciples; spermatozoa; boar.;

    Abstract : Internal fertilization usually implies that a spermatozoon, with intact attributes for zygote formation, passes all hurdles during its transport through the female genitalia and reaches the oocyte. During this journey, millions to billions of other spermatozoa perish. READ MORE

  2. 2. Voltage-dependent anion channels (VDAC) in the plasma membrane induce apoptosis

    University dissertation from Institutionen för biomedicin och kirurgi

    Author : Nesar Akanda; Fredrik Elinder; Tuula Jalonen; [2006]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Physiology; Apoptosis; Cell membrane; Hippocampus; Membrane potentials; Neurons; Voltage-dependent anion channels; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin;

    Abstract : Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is essential for proper development and functioning of the body systems. During development, apoptosis plays a central role to sculpt the embryo, and in adults, to maintain tissue homeostasis by eliminating redundant, damaged or effete cells. Therefore, a tight regulation of this process is essential. READ MORE

  3. 3. Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy to Study Plasma Membrane Protein Dynamics

    University dissertation from Lausanne : EPFL

    Author : Joachim Piguet; Horst Vogel; Ruud Hovius; Jerker Widengren; Antoine Triller; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence; microscopy; plasma membrane; membrane proteins; membrane proteins diffusion; single-molecule imaging; single-molecule tracking; pentameric ligand-gated ion channels; nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; serotonin receptor; synapse; neuromuscular junction; post-synaptic scaffold; rapsyn; myopathies; fluorescent proteins; Förster resonance energy transfer; FRET imaging; protein-protein interactions; protein trafficking; photo-activatable proteins; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Abstract : Membrane protein dynamics is of great importance for living organisms. The precise localization of proteins composing a synapse on the membrane facing a nerve terminus is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system. In muscle fibers, the nicotinic acetylcholine is densely packed under the motor nerve termini. READ MORE

  4. 4. Methods for elucidating membrane protein structure and function

    University dissertation from Lausanne : EPFL

    Author : Carolina Trkulja; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; patch clamp; antibodies; mass spectrometry; ion channels; proteomics; fluorescence; TRPV1; cholesterol.; limited proteolysis; Membrane proteins;

    Abstract : Elucidation of the structure-function relationship of membrane proteins increases our understanding of many biological processes, both physiological and pathological. However, membrane proteins have been notoriously difficult to study, having part of their structure embedded into the lipid cell membrane. READ MORE

  5. 5. Desalination using Membrane Distillation Experimental and Numerical Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alaa Kullab; Andrew Martin; Mohammed Khayet; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Air gap membrane distillation; applications; experimental and simulation; CFD; physical modification; performance improvement;

    Abstract : Desalination has been increasingly adopted over the last decades as an option, and sometimes as a necessity to overcome water shortages in many areas around the world. Today, several thermal and physical separation technologies are well established in large scale production for domestic and industrial purposes. READ MORE
