  1. 1. Berries in Prevention of Metabolic Disease – focus on obesity, diabetes and gut microbiota

    University dissertation from Molecular Nutrition, Lund University

    Author : Lovisa Heyman; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; obesity; type 2 diabetes; berries; low-grade inflammation; gut microbiota; hepatic steatosis; gene expression; DNA methylation; lingonberry; blackcurrant; bilberry; açai;

    Abstract : The increasing prevalence of obesity is a worldwide health problem closely linked to diet and lifestyle factors. Obesity is associated with increased risk of several metabolic disorders including insulin resistance, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ligand binding and enzyme catalysis studied by molecular dynamics simulations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tomas Hansson; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; molecular dynamics simulation; free energy; linear response; drug design; empirical valence bond; HIV protease; protein tyrosine phosphatase; Molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Molecular dynamics simulations and free energy calculations can be applied to biomolecular systems to predict ligand binding affinities. Combined with hybrid quantum-classical potential energy surfaces, such computations can also be used to probe enzymatic catalysis mechanisms. READ MORE

  3. 3. The effects of glucocorticoids on brown fat : physiological and molecular studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Ineke Luijten; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is the main site for non-shivering thermogenesis in most mammals. The BAT-specific uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1) uncouples substrate oxidation from ATP production and hereby decreases metabolic efficiency. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards molecular weight-dependent uses of kraft lignin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ayumu Tagami; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; kraft lignin; successive solvent fractionation; molecular weight; structural analysis; thermal stability; heat capacity; antioxidant activity; methylene blue sorption; tunicate cellulose nanofiber-starch lignin composites films; film properties; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : There is growing demand for a more efficient use of polymers that originate from renewable feedstocks due to the depleting supply of fossil fuels, based on economic and environmental reasons. As a result, lignin has attracted renewed interest as a resource for various bioproducts. READ MORE

  5. 5. Influences of in vivo and in vitro loading on the proteoglycan synthesis of articular cartilage chondrocytes

    University dissertation from Kuopio : Kuopio University Printing Office

    Author : Mikko Lammi; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Articular cartilage; proteoglycans; loading; stress; hydrostatic pressure; biokemi; Biochemistry; cellforskning; cellforskning; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; ortopedi; Orthopaedics;

    Abstract : In this study, the biosynthesis of proteoglycans (PGs) was examined in articular cartilage of canine hip joint after long-distance running experiment and in bovine chondrocyte cultures during in vitro loading with hydrostatic pressure. In addition, new assays were developed for more sensitive quantitation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and PGs. READ MORE
