  1. 1. Before Sound: Transversal Processes in Site-Specific Sonic Practice

    Author : Åsa Stjerna; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : sound installation; site specific; site specificity; sound art; artistic research; philosophy of immanence; assemblage; affect; ethics; public space; transversality; transversal; Gilles Deleuze; Félix Guattari; sonification; sound design; sonic practice; transformation;

    Abstract : This doctoral research explores the capacity of site-specific practices of sound installation to bring about transformation. It claims that in order to understand this capacity, we need to address the complexity of the transversal processes that make up artistic practices in this field, and understand that these transversal processes in fact precede sound.

  2. 2. Haematopoietic Serine Proteases : A Cleavage Specificity Analysis

    Author : Michael Thorpe; Lars Hellman; Urban Gullberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mast cell; cleavage specificity; phage display; chymase; serine protease; granzyme; fish protease;

    Abstract : Mast cells are innate immune cells, historically involved in allergy responses involving IgE. Through this, they have earned a reputation as a fairly detrimental cell type. Their beneficial roles remain somewhat enigmatic although they clearly have the ability to modulate the immune system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Borderline archaeology : a practice of contemporary archaeology - exploring aspects of creative narratives and performative cultural production

    Author : Fiona Campbell; Jonna Ulin; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; BorderLine Archaology; rhizome; border theory; contemporary archaeology; performance art; performance studies; performativity; material culture; cultural production; the archaeological; performative writing; creative narratives; mapping; parasite; eventscape; walkscape; site-seeing; site-specificity; subjectivity; otherness; excavation; repetition; re-presentation; past-present; labyrinth; movement; croft; family-landscape; postmemory; family album; home;

    Abstract : This dissertation is a joint dissertation, written by two people about the connectivity of two practices; archaeology and performance. Its contents focus upon the creation of a hybrid field of study that has only just begun to exist. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cleavage Specificity of Mast Cell Chymases

    Author : Mattias K. Andersson; Lars Hellman; Gunnar Pejler; Per Venge; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biology; Immunology; Mast cell; Serine protease; Chymase; Cleavage specificity; Phage display; Biologi;

    Abstract : Mast cells (MC) are potent inflammatory cells that are known primarily for their prominent role in IgE mediated allergies. However, they also provide beneficial functions to the host, e.g. in bacterial and parasitic defence. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization of Epoxide Hydrolases from Yeast and Potato

    Author : Lisa Tronstad-Elfström; Mikael Widersten; Michael Arand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Epoxide hydrolase; Catalytic residues; Active site; trans-stilbene oxide; Rapid kinetics; Active site tyrosyls; Enzyme mechanism; Lewis acid; X-ray crystallography; Substrate specificity; Unidentified ORF; α β hydrolase fold; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Abstract : Epoxides are three-membered cyclic ethers formed in the metabolism of foreign substances and as endogenous metabolites. Epoxide hydrolases (EHs) are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of epoxides to yield the corresponding diols. READ MORE
