  1. 1. On the mechanism of Urea-induced protein denaturation

    Author : Matteus Lindgren; Per-Olof Westlund; Arnold Maliniak; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chemical denaturation; Protein unfolding; urea; MD simulations; NMR spectroscopy; Biophysical chemistry; Biofysikalisk kemi; fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : It is well known that folded proteins in water are destabilized by the addition of urea. When a protein loses its ability to perform its biological activity due to a change in its structure, it is said to denaturate. READ MORE

  2. 2. Urea and Non-Protein Nitrogen Metabolism in Infants : With Special Reference to the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

    Author : Mary George; Sten Lindahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Urea; non-protein nitrogen metabolism; SIDS; drinking water nitrate concentration; carbon dioxide production; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : A large amount of non-protein nitrogen, in the form of urea and ammonium, is present in human breastmilk; however its physiological role in the infant is as yet not fully understood. It has been hypothesized that an insufficient enteric metabolism of urea could play a role in the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Corrosion of Stainless Steel in Diesel Exhaust Gas After-treatment Systems with Urea Injection

    Author : Johanna Nockert; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; urea; stainless steel; thermal cycling; High temperature corrosion; AES; XPS; condensate; SCR; diesel exhaust;

    Abstract : The demands on lowering the emissions from fossil fuel keep increasing. Together with higher demands of longer component lifetime and lighter vehicles for lower fuel consumption this has led to an increasing use of stainless steels in exhaust after-treatment systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biokinetics and radiation dosimetry of 14C-labelled triolein, urea, glycocholic acid and xylose in man. Studies related to nuclear medicine “breath tests” using accelerator mass spectrometry

    Author : Mikael Gunnarsson; Malmö Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Clinical physics; radiology; tomography; medical instrumentation; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering; Kärnfysik; Nuclear physics; xylose.; glycocholic acid; urea; triolein; Dosimetry; Biokinetic; AMS; Accelerator mass spectrometry; 14C; Breath test;

    Abstract : 14C-labelled substances have been used in biomedical research and clinical medicine for over 50 years. Physicians and scientists however, often hesitate to use these substances in patients and volunteers because the radiation dosimetry is unclear. READ MORE

  5. 5. Humectants and skin : effects of hydration from molecule to man

    Author : Cathrine Albèr; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : skin; stratum corneum; hydration; hyaluronan; glycerol; urea;

    Abstract : Humectants belong to a group of hydrophilic compounds frequently used in skin care products with the aim to diminish the clinical symptom of skin dryness. The biochemical and biophysical mechanisms by which humectants interact with the skin barrier are far from fully understood. READ MORE
