  1. 1. Dealing With Reservoir Effects in Human and Faunal Skeletal Remains : Understanding the radiocarbon dating of aquatic samples

    Author : Jack Dury; Gunilla Eriksson; Kerstin Lidén; Peter Jordan; Johannes van der Plicht; Philippa Ascough; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Radiocarbon Dating; Reservoir Effects; Bayesian; Modelling; Palaeodiet; Stable Isotopes; Skeletal Remains; Collagen; arkeologi med inriktning mot laborativ arkeologi; Scientific Archaeology;

    Abstract : Archaeology relies on the ordering of past events to study cultural developments. This has traditionally been achieved by looking at the stratigraphic depths of materials relative to one another. In this way, chronologies of past technological progressions and stylistic changes can be built. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sensitive Identification Tools in Forensic DNA Analysis

    Author : Hanna Edlund; Marie Allen; Niels Morling; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : forensic genetics; STRs; Y-chromosome; Pyrosequencing; mitochondrial DNA; skeletal remains; DNA extraction; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicinsk genetik; Medical Genetics;

    Abstract : DNA as forensic evidence is valuable in criminal investigations. Implementation of new, sensitive and fast technologies is an important part of forensic genetic research. This thesis aims to evaluate new sensitive methods to apply in forensic DNA analysis including analysis of old skeletal remains. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of Mitochondrial DNA Analysis in Contemporary and Historical Samples

    Author : Maria Lembring; Marie Allen; Niels Morling; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Forensic genetics; Mitochondrial DNA; HVI HVII; Population database; Haplotype; Haplogroup; Ancient DNA; Historical DNA samples; skeletal remains; Vasa museum; Medieval samples; Copernicus; Göring; Genetik; Genetics;

    Abstract : The mitochondrion is a tiny organelle that is the power supplier of the cell and vital to the functioning of the body organs. Additionally it contains a small circular genome of about 16 kb, present in many copies which makes the mitochondrial DNA more viable than nuclear DNA. READ MORE

    Abstract : Introduction: Thanks to achievements in paediatric heart surgery and medicine, the population of adults with surgically repaired or palliated congenital heart defects is growing. Many of these adults have reduced exercise capacity, weaker muscular strength and shorter height, all of which suggest an altered body composition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vascular effects of prostacyclin in cat skeletal muscle and in the traumatised rat brain

    Author : Peter Bentzer; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reflection coefficient; cerebral blood flow; hydraulic conductivity; oedema; capilary filtration coefficient; endothelin-1; ATP-dependent potassium channels; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Disturbances in microvascular function may be important for tissue damage in many disease states. Prostacyclin, a substance produced by endothelial cells, is important for the maintenance of normal vascular homeostasis and is a potential drug for treatment of microvascular dysfunction, but indications and optimal dosage remains to be established.
