  1. 1. The plant respiratory chain: Redox responses and catalytic definition of alternative pathways

    University dissertation from Lund University Department of Cell and Organism Biology Sölvegatan 35B SE-223 62 Lund

    Author : Daniela Geisler; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; enzymology; Proteins; Kärlväxters fysiologi; Physiology of vascular plants; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; Växtbiokemi; Plant biochemistry; respiratory chain; plant mitochondria; nitrogen; NADPH dehydrogenase; NADH dehydrogenase; alternative oxidase; calcium; Proteiner; enzymologi; Bioenergetics; Bioenergetik; Lipids; steroids; membranes; Lipider; steroider; mebran;

    Abstract : The respiratory chain of plants contains both proton-pumping enzymes that conserve energy and non-proton-pumping alternative enzymes that bypass the sites of energy conservation. In addition to the proton-pumping complex I, plant mitochondria contain alternative type II NAD(P)H dehydrogenases, which allow oxidation of NADH and NADPH from the matrix and the cytosol. READ MORE

  2. 2. Plant major intrinsic proteins - functional implications of expression and localisation studies

    University dissertation from Per Kjellbom, Department of Plant Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Laure Fraysse; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant biochemistry; immunolabelling; microarray; plasma membrane; aquaporins; plant; water; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : Plant water channels are members of the very old Major Intrinsic Protein (MIP) family, with representatives in bacteria, fungi, animals, and plants. The genome of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana contains 35 MIP genes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular regulation of vascular cambium identity and activity

    University dissertation from Per Kjellbom, Department of Plant Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Melis Kucukoglu; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]

    Abstract : In plants, secondary development and wood formation originates from the cell divisions within the vascular meristem, where the vascular stem cells are located. This thesis work presents my results on the molecular regulation of vascular cambium stem cell identity and activity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Methane dynamics in northern wetlands: Significance of vascular plants

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Anna Joabsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquatic ecology; marine biology; Hydrobiology; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; climate change; arctic wetlands; northern wetlands; plant-microbe interactions; methane emission; vascular plants; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The studies presented in Papers I to VI illustrate several different aspects of the impact of vascular plants on methane emissions from northern natural wetlands. The subject has been approached on different scales, ranging from the study of microbial substrates in the vicinity of a single plant root, to an attempt to extrapolate some of the results to the entire northern hemisphere north of 50°N.

  5. 5. Plant Species Composition and Diversity in Cliff and Mountain Ecosystems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Henrik Antonsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cliff ecology; bryophytes; biodiversity; beta diversity; dispersal; facilitation; nurse plant; plant-plant interactions; Silene acaulis; stress;

    Abstract : Ecosystems today are under increasing pressure from a rapidly changing climate, changes in land-use, habitat fragmentation and degradation and increasing anthropogenic disturbance. Studying drivers of biodiversity patterns is of increasing importance for understanding the dynamics of communities and their reactions and adaptation to changes in the future. READ MORE
