  1. 1. Exosomes and the NKG2D receptor-ligand system in pregnancy and cancer : using stress for survival

    Author : Malin Hedlund; Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; Susanne Gabrielsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Exsosomes; NKG2D; MICA; MICB; ULBP; human placenta; trophoblast; syncytiotrophoblast; thermal stress; oxidative stress; leukemia; lymphoma; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Although not obvious at first sight, several parallels can be drawn between pregnancy andcancer. Many proliferative, invasive and immune tolerance mechanisms that supportnormal pregnancy are also exploited by malignancies to establish a nutrient supply andevade or edit the immune response of the host.

  2. 2. The conserved methionines in the chloroplast small heat shock protein - Role in chaperone-substrate interactions and effects of methionine sulfoxidation on chaperone activity

    Author : Niklas Gustavsson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Metabolism; Biochemistry; oxidative stress; thermostability; temperature stress; stress tolerance; sHsp; protein aggregation; molecular chaperone; Heat stress; methionine sulfoxidation; Biokemi; metabolism; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : The chloroplast-localized small heat shock protein (sHsp) Hsp21 belongs to the family of alpha-crystallin like sHsps which form large oligomeric structures and protect partly unfolded aggregation-prone proteins against aggregation. The main focus for this thesis has been on the highly conserved methionines in Hsp21. READ MORE

  3. 3. Process chain simulation of forming, welding and heat treatment of Alloy 718

    Author : Joachim Steffenburg-Nordenström; Lars-Erik Svensson; Lars-Erik Lindgren; Fredrik Niklasson; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Forming; Welding; Stress relieve annealing; Heat treatment; Finite Element Simulation; Manufacturing process chain; Alloy 718; Production Technology; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Manufacturing of aero engine components requires attention to residual stress and final shape of the product in order to meet high quality product standards.This sets very high demands on involved manufacturing steps to meet design requirements. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular Mechanisms Optimizing Photosynthesis during High Light Stress in Plants

    Author : Lan Yin; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Arabidopsis; light stress; photosynthesis; chloroplast;

    Abstract : Oxygenic photosynthesis is the process by which plants, algae and cyanobacteria use solar energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into molecular oxygen and carbohydrates. Photosynthesis sustains life on Earth since it provides not only energy for individual growth, but also represents the starting point of the food chain for most living organisms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fibre flow mechanisms

    Author : Roger Bergström; Ulf Björkman; Bo Norman; Mark Martinez; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fibre flow; floc; shear; compression; fibre network; stress chain; Cellulose and paper engineering; Cellulosa- och pappersteknik;

    Abstract : The flow behaviour, and primarily the floc-floc interaction, of pulp paper suspensions have been studied visually. Analogy models based on these observations have been developed as well as the identification of important parameters of floc break-up in low shear rate flow fields. READ MORE
