  1. 1. Evaluation of Dust Suppressants for Gravel Roads: Methods Development and Efficiency Studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Karin Edvardsson; Karin Oscarsson; KTH.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gravel road; dust; particulate matter; PM10; horizontal dust diffusion; deteriorations; maintenance; dust control; dust suppressants; efficiency; application rate; leaching; residual concentration; seasonal variations; salt solution; solid salt; calcium chloride; magnesium chloride; lignosulphonate; polysaccharide sugar ; bitumen emulsion; rape oil; starch; surfactant; mesa; clay; fine material content; Komplexa system - mikrodataanalys; fine material content.;

    Abstract : Application of the proper dust suppressant to a gravel road ensures road safety and riding comfort as well as creating a cleaner and healthier environment for residents in buildings adjacent to the road. It also reduces the need and cost for vehicle repair, road maintenance activities, and aggregate supplementation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on the Role of UDP-Glucose Dehydrogenase in Polysaccharide Biosynthesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Roman; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; UDP-glucose dehydrogenase; polysaccharide biosynthesis; glycosaminoglycan; A. thaliana; E. coli K5; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi;

    Abstract : Polysaccharides are found in all forms of life and serve diverse purposes. They are enzymatically synthesised from activated monosaccharide precursors, nucleotide sugars. One such nucleotide sugar is UDP-glucuronic acid, which is formed from UDP-glucose by the UDP-glucose dehydrogenase (UGDH) enzyme. READ MORE

  3. 3. Naphthoxylosides – Probing the β4GalT7 active site

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Anna Siegbahn; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Våra kroppar är uppbyggda av celler. Dessa celler har olika funktioner beroende på var i kroppen de finns. Varje cell tar upp näring, omvandlar den till energi, och energin används för att cellen ska kunna fortleva och utöva specialiserade funktioner samt eventuellt reproducera sig. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of oligosaccharides and carbon-13 enriched bacterial polysaccharides using NMR spectroscopy and computer simulations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Organic Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Alexandra Kjellberg; Stockholms universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Chemistry; MEDICIN Kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : The conformation and dynamics of the trisaccharide methyl β-D-Glcp-(1--> 2)[β-D-Glcp-(1 --> 3)] α-D-Manp and its constituent disaccharides methyl β-D-Glcp-(1 --> 2) α-D-Manp and methyl β-D-Glcp-(1 --> 3) α-D-Manp have been studied using computer simulations and NMR spectroscopy. The computer simulations applied were Metropolis Monte Carlo simulations employing the HSEA force field and Langevin dynamics simulations using the PARM22 and CHEAT95 force fileds. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enzymes involved in heparan sulfate chain elongation : Function of a novel family of tumor suppressors?

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Thomas Lind; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; heparan sulfate; biosynthesis; glycosyltransferase; EXT1; EXT2; UDP-glucosedehydrogenase; KfiC; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi;

    Abstract : Heparan sulfate (HS) is a glycosaminoglycan associated with many physiological functions such as regulation of growth factor action and cell adhesion. The HS polysaccharide is synthesized by alternating addition of D-glucuronic acid (GlcA) and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (GlcNAc) units from the corresponding UDP-sugar precursors. READ MORE
