  1. 1. The oxidative stress response of Francisella tularensis

    Author : Marie Honn; Anders Sjöstedt; Helena Lindgren; Andres Melendez; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Francisella tularensis; FupA; MglA; OxyR; ROS; oxidative stress; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Francisella tularensis is capable of infecting numerous cell types, including professional phagocytes. Upon phagocytosis, F. tularensis resides within the phagosome before escaping into the cytosol to replicate. Phagocytes constitute a hostile environment rich in ROS, which are employed as a means of killing pathogens. READ MORE

  2. 2. Oxidative stress and alterations in the mammalian iron metabolism : A study on iron, inflammation, oxidative stress and neurodegeneration

    Author : Jonas Hälldin; Tiit Land; Paolo Arosio; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Iron is essential for all living organisms, from bacteria to man for a broad variety of biological functions, including oxygen transport and DNA synthesis. However, iron can also be toxic, due to its involvement in the formation of highly reactive oxygen species through Fenton chemistry. READ MORE

  3. 3. Coordination of two different genomes in response to light and stress

    Author : Louise Norén Lindbäck; Åsa Strand; Antony Dodd; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis thaliana; chloroplast; cellular communication; tetrapyrrole; circadian clock; oxidative stress; light signalling; gene regulation; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : About 1.5 billion years ago, a photosynthetic bacteria was engulfed by a eukaryotic cell which initiated a symbiotic relationship and the evolution of the chloroplast as we know it today. The chloroplast has retained its own genome encoding for a number of proteins required for the function of the chloroplast. READ MORE

  4. 4. Abiotic stress and plant-microbe interactions in Norway spruce

    Author : Julia Christa Haas; Vaughan Hurry; Nathaniel Street; Torgny Näsholm; Jennifer Baltzer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Norway spruce; boreal forest; cold; drought; bacteria; fungi; plant-microbe interactions; climate change;

    Abstract : Norway spruce (Picea abies) is a dominant tree species in boreal forests with extensive ecological and economic value. Climate change is threatening these ecosystems, with rising temperatures impacting cold hardening and increasing drought stress in regions experiencing lower precipitation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heme Protein Biogenesis - Catalase in Enterococcus faecalis

    Author : Michael Baureder; Molekylär cellbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Enterococcus faecalis; heme proteins; protein assembly; oxidative stress; catalase; cytochrome;

    Abstract : Heme proteins form a large and diverse group of proteins which are involved in a variety of biological functions. The heme prosthetic group enables them to carry out redox reactions, transport electrons, bind gaseous molecules, and function as sensors. Despite their importance only little is generally known about heme protein biogenesis. READ MORE
