  1. 1. Structure, Function and Regulation of Fps1p. A Eukaryotic Solute Efflux Channel

    Author : Kristina Hedfalk; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NPA-motif; Fps1p; regulation; overexpression; osmoadaptation; glycerol facilitator; MIP;

    Abstract : Integral membrane proteins belonging to the Major Intrinsic Protein (MIP) family can be found in all kingdoms of life. MIPs are transporters of water, small neutral solutes and possibly ions, and hence are important for osmoregulation at different levels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fusion Plasma Observations at JET with the TOFOR Neutron Spectrometer : Instrumental Challenges and Physics Results

    Author : Maria Gatu Johnson; Matthias Weiszflog; Luciano Bertalot; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fusion; Plasma diagnostics; Neutron Spectrometry; TOFOR; JET; ITER; time-of-flight; plasma heating; Nuclear physics; Kärnfysik; Applied Nuclear Physics; Tillämpad kärnfysik;

    Abstract : The neutron spectrometer TOFOR was installed at JET in 2005 for high-rate observation of neutrons from reactions between two deuterium (D) ions. Neutron spectrometry as a fusion plasma diagnostic technique is invoked to obtain information about the velocity states of fusion fuel ions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diagnostic methods for bacterial etiology in adult community-acquired pneumonia

    Author : Kristoffer Strålin; Åke Örtqvist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The etiologic agent is often unidentified in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Development of new diagnostic methods has been encouraged. We aimed to develop a multiplex PCR (mPCR) assay for common bacterial pathogens and evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of this assay and of respiratory culture in CAP. READ MORE

  4. 4. Schizophrenia and Nitric Oxide: Deficits in Information Processing Invetigated in Animal Models

    Author : Daniel Klamer; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phencyclidine – nitric oxide – prepulse inhibition – habituation – acoustic startle – cAMP – in vivo microdialysis – NMDA receptor – rat – mouse – schizophrenia;

    Abstract : Rationale: Schizophrenia-like symptoms can be induced in humans by phencyclidine (PCP), a non-competitive antagonist of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. Schizophrenic patients and PCP-treated animals display deficits in pre-attentive information processing, as assessed by e.g. prepulse inhibition of the acoustic startle response. READ MORE

  5. 5. Viral infections in immunocompromised patients

    Author : Lars Öhrmalm; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : The number of patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is steadily increasing, and the outcome of this intervention is largely dependent on how well complications in the form of severe infections can be adequately diagnosed and controlled. Adenoviruses (AdV) have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in these patients. READ MORE
