  2. 2. Signalling in plant mitochondria. Redox regulation of gene expression & characterisation of a pea nucleoside diphosphate kinase

    University dissertation from Plant Biochemistry, Box 117 SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Martha L Escobar Galvis; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mitochondrial gene expression; redox; respiratory complex II; NDPK; protein interactions; heat-stress; Växtbiokemi; Plant biochemistry;

    Abstract : This work contributes to our understanding of mitochondrial responses to changing environmental conditions in plants. The first part of this thesis is focused in the study of redox regulation of mitochondrial gene expression. By using inhibitors, the redox state of the components of the mitochondrial respiratory chain was selectively affected. READ MORE

  3. 3. The plant respiratory chain: Redox responses and catalytic definition of alternative pathways

    University dissertation from Lund University Department of Cell and Organism Biology Sölvegatan 35B SE-223 62 Lund

    Author : Daniela Geisler; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; enzymology; Proteins; Kärlväxters fysiologi; Physiology of vascular plants; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; Växtbiokemi; Plant biochemistry; respiratory chain; plant mitochondria; nitrogen; NADPH dehydrogenase; NADH dehydrogenase; alternative oxidase; calcium; Proteiner; enzymologi; Bioenergetics; Bioenergetik; Lipids; steroids; membranes; Lipider; steroider; mebran;

    Abstract : The respiratory chain of plants contains both proton-pumping enzymes that conserve energy and non-proton-pumping alternative enzymes that bypass the sites of energy conservation. In addition to the proton-pumping complex I, plant mitochondria contain alternative type II NAD(P)H dehydrogenases, which allow oxidation of NADH and NADPH from the matrix and the cytosol. READ MORE

  4. 4. Apoptosis and tumor cell death pathways in response to HAMLET

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Oskar Hallgren; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicinska vetenskaper allmänt ; General biomedical sciences; Klinisk biologi; apoptosis; autophagy; alpha-lactalbumin; Clinical biology; programmed cell death; HAMLET; cell cycle;

    Abstract : HAMLET (Human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumor cells) is a molecular complex of alpha-lactalbumin and oleic acid, that induces programmed cells death in tumor cells but leaves healthy differentiated cells unaffected. It has a broad anti-tumor activity as more than 40 cell lines from different origin are sensitive. READ MORE

  5. 5. Comparative sequencing of candidate genes in complex disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Shane McCarthy; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA; Sequencing; Complex Disease; Candidate Gene;

    Abstract : Complex multi-factorial diseases such as cardiovascular, metabolic, neurological and respiratory disorders affect a great number of people across the world. In the post-Human Genome Sequencing era, genome wide association studies are increasingly viable alternatives to linkage approaches in locating disease genes. READ MORE
