  1. 1. Advancing Metabolic Engineering through Combination of Systems Biology and Adaptive Evolution

    Author : Kuk-ki Hong; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metabolic engineering; galactose utilization; systems biology; Ras PKA signaling pathway; evolutionary engineering; pleiotropy of evolutionary strategies;

    Abstract : Understanding evolutionary strategies of microorganisms may provide opportunities foradvanced strain development with the aim to produce valuable bio-products from renewablebiomass resources. Through evolutionary processes, microorganisms can attain new traitsassociated with genetic changes that may be useful for the construction of improved strains. READ MORE

    Abstract : A large number of proteins require certain metals to stabilize their structures or to function properly. About one third of all proteins in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) contain metals and it is estimated that approximately the same proportion of all proteins are metalloproteins. READ MORE

  4. 4. Systems Biology of Yeast Lipid Metabolism

    University dissertation from Uppsala, Sweden : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pramote Chumnanpuen; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transcriptome; Integrated analysis; Lipidome.; Inositol-choline; Opi1; Yeast lipid metabolism; high throughput techniques; Ino4; TORC1; Snf1; Ino2;

    Abstract : Lipid metabolism plays an important role in the development of many different life-style related diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis, and understanding the molecular mechanisms behind regulation of lipid biosynthesis and degradation may lead to development of new therapies. In this project we undertook a global study of lipid metabolism in the eukaryotic model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae. READ MORE

  5. 5. Systems Biology of the Secondary Metabolism in Filamentous Fungi

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Jens Christian Froslev Nielsen; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; genomics; systems biology; secondary metabolites; antibiotics; Next-generation sequencing; secondary metabolism; filamentous fungi; cell factories; Penicillium;

    Abstract : Filamentous fungi constitute a rich reservoir of pharmaceutically relevant bioactive small molecules. These compounds, commonly referred to as secondary metabolites, are widely used as antibiotics for the treatment of microbial infections, but also as other pharmaceuticals such as immunosuppressors, cholesterol lowering agents and anticancer drugs.
