  1. 1. Translational regulation of genes in salmonella typhimurium by vitamin B12

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Solveig Ravnum; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Transational Control; Salmonella typhimurium; Vitamin B12; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : In this thesis I have studied the mechanism by which vitamin B12 regulates the expression of the cob operon and the btuB gene in Salmonella typhimurium. The cob operon encodes most of the 25 genes required for the de novo synthesis of vitamin B12, and the butB gene encodes the outer membrane protein needed for transport of exogenous vitamin B12 into the cell.

    Abstract : Subclinical vitamin B12 and folate deficiency is common in the elderly. The clinical significance remains unresolved. There is not a universally accepted set of laboratory criteria for diagnosis, however subclinical deficiency is important to diagnose since it is easy to treat. READ MORE

  3. 3. Urinary diversion by the Kock ileal reservoir. Studies on clinical outcome, quality of life, bile acid and vitamin B12 metabolism

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Gunnar Olofsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]

    Abstract : Introduction: Urinary diversion with the Kock ileal reservoir has been performed at Sahlgrenska University Hospital since 1975. One key question is the long-term consequences regarding glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and quality of life of this kind of surgery. Other important topics are the consequences due to loss of ileum. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vitamin D and its role in obesity and other associated conditions
