    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; alternative reproductive tactics; sperm competition; brown trout; Atlantic salmon; ATP; ejaculate expenditure; motility; sperm morphology; trade-off; loaded raffle; zoologi; Zoology;

    Abstract : Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., and brown trout, Salmo trutta L., exhibit alternative male maturation phenotypes, anadromous and precociously mature parr, which commonly endure in sperm competition at the spawning grounds. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Långlivade klororganiska miljögifter (POP) som polyklorerade bifenyler (PCB), dioxiner och och insektsgiftet diklordifenyltrikloretan (DDT) har sedan decennier funnits i vår miljö. PCB framställdes genom klorering av bifenyl och det finns 209 olika varianter. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sperm motility in Gasterosteiform fishes The role of salinity and ovarian fluid

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Zoologiska institutionen

    Author : Helena Elofsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : In externally fertilising fishes, various factors in the surrounding environment may influence the viability of the sperm and eggs, thus determining the success of reproduction. In this thesis, the influence of salinity and ovarian fluid on sperm motility has been investigated in three Gasterosteiform fishes. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Kallikrein-Related Peptidases hK2 and PSA with Emphasis on Genetic Variation, Secretion, and Sperm Motility

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Charlotta Sävblom; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human glandular kallikrein 2; KLK3; hk2; prostate-specific antigen; PSA; sperm motility; seminal plasma; androgen receptor; SNP; CAG; KLK2;

    Abstract : Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and human glandular kallikrein 2 (hK2) are secreted by the prostate into seminal plasma and through leakage into blood. This leakage increases rapidly in prostate disease, and PSA is used worldwide as a marker of prostate cancer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Perspectives on the Biological Role of Human Prostasomes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lena Carlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Prostasomes; cryopreservation; human spermatozoa; sperm motility; anti- prostasome antibodies; PC-3 cells; Bacillus megaterium; antibacterial; antisperm antibodies; complement activation; sperm agglutination; infertility; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Prostasomes are extracellularly occurring organelles which are secreted in human semen by the prostate gland. Prostasomes have several known biological activities, but their physiological function is still unclear. In this thesis some new aspects were studied on the biological role of the prostasomes.
