  1. 1. The effect of protein intake and physical exercise on energy turnover and substrate utilisation at energy balance in man

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders H. Forslund; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Body composition; carbohydrate; energy turnover; fat; protein; stable isotopes; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Nutrition; näringslära;

    Abstract : The principal goal of the thesis has been to evaluate the effect of protein intake and physical exercise on energy turnover and substrate utilisation. Body composition assessment is of importance as an indicator of the energy balance. Therefore, in the first study the aim was to develop new models to estimate body composition more accurately.

  2. 2. Zinc in folding and misfolding of SOD1 Implications for ALS

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Lina Leinartaité; Mikael Oliveberg; Bengt-Harald Jonsson; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein stability; protein misfolding; local unfolding; metal binding; energy landscape; protein disease; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease causing degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons. Most ALS cases are sporadic; only 6% are associated with mutations in Cu, Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD1). READ MORE

  3. 3. Amino acid and protein turnover in human skeletal muscle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Rokhsareh Farrah Vesali; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Critically ill patients are characterised by a severe net protein catabolism. The rate of muscle protein loss is in the magnitude of 10% per week. A consequence of muscle wasting is increased weakness, which is associated with high rates of mortality and morbidity. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Study on Trypanosomal Polyamine Biosynthetic Enzymes

    University dissertation from Sima Nasizadeh BMC F13 S-211 84 Lund Sweden

    Author : Sima Nasizadeh; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cell cycle; protein turnover; trypanosomatids; polyamines; Ornithine decarboxylase; S-adenosylmethione decarboxylase; Parasitology human and animal ; Parasitologi människa och djur ;

    Abstract : The polyamines, putrescine, spermidine, and spermine, are essential for all forms of life. The polyamine biosynthetic pathway has been shown to be a potential target for drugs against various trypanosomal parasitic diseases. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular regulation of rat histidine decarboxylase

    University dissertation from Department of Physiology and Neuroscience, Lund University

    Author : Christine Dartsch; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physiology; omeprazole; antiserum; fetal rat liver; COS-7 cells; purification; bacterial expression; protein turnover; ECL cells; gastric mucosa; gastrin; histdine decarboxylase; histamine; Fysiologi; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : Histamine is involved in a variety of physiological processes like gastric acid secretion, inflammation and neurotransmission. The production of histamine is catalysed by the enzyme histidine decarboxylase (HDC), which is a strongly regulated enzyme. READ MORE
