  1. 1. Impaired Glucose Tolerance in Childhood Obesity : Contribution of Glucagon, GLP-1 and Inflammation

    Author : Hannes Manell; Peter Bergsten; Anders Forslund; Jens Juul Holst; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Childhood obesity; impaired glucose tolerance; type 2 diabetes; glucagon; glucagon-like peptide-1; dipeptidyl peptidase-4; inflammation; free fatty acids; insulin; visceral adiposity; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : In the wake of increased obesity prevalence, impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in childhood and adolescence is increasingly common. Given the negative impacts these conditions have on health over time, understanding the pathophysiology in those affected early in life is important. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic adaptation to soil acidification in four grasses

    Author : Pernilla Göransson; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; Deschampsia flexuosa; Deschampsia cespitosa; Elymus caninus; Poa nemoralis; arbuscular mycorrhiza; stress; tolerance; genetic variation; local adaptation; Al; Soil acidification; pH;

    Abstract : Soil acidification has become a source of serious concern in many parts of the world. In southern Sweden, the deposition of acidifying substances, such as nitrogen and sulphur compounds, has decreased the mean pH of forest soils by almost one unit since the 1950s. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improving the Response of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to Lignocellulosic Hydrolysate Inhibitors in Ethanolic Fermentation

    Author : Joao Almeida; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; furfural; ethanol; fermentation; phenolics; furaldehyde; HMF; ADH1; xylose reductase; tolerance; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; Lignocellulosic hydrolysate inhibitors; ADH6;

    Abstract : The production of ethanol based on lignocellulosic biomass requires the fermentation of a hydrolysate containing hexose and pentose sugars in an inhibitory environment. In fact, the lignocellulosic hydrolysate obtained from pretreatment and hydrolysis of the raw material contains a variety of inhibitory compounds, including (i) the furaldehydes 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furaldehyde (HMF) and 2-furaldehyde (furfural), (ii) weak acids (e.

  4. 4. Cooperation and conflict over the struggle to reproduce in harsh environments : An experimental field study on ostriches

    Author : Julian Melgar; MEMEG; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; social; grupp; konkurrens; konflikt; fusk; värme; stress; tolerans; complexitet; variation; social; group; competition; conflict; cheating; heat; stress; tolerance; complexity; variation;

    Abstract : People are used to hearing that evolution is about the survival of the fittest. Theyimagine a world full of bullies that ruthlessly fight their way to the top in the struggle for life, leaving the weak behind. But this doesn’t need be the case. READ MORE

  5. 5. Extensions in Flux : An Essay on Vagueness and Context Sensitivity

    Author : Jonas Åkerman; Peter Pagin; Diana Raffman; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; vagueness; context sensitivity; contextualism; weak tolerance; sorites paradox; forced march; equivocation; indexicals; Fara; Raffman; Shapiro; Soames; Theoretical philosophy; Teoretisk filosofi; Theoretical Philosophy; teoretisk filosofi;

    Abstract : The extensions of vague predicates like ‘is bald’, ‘is tall’, and ‘is a heap’ apparently lack sharp boundaries, and this makes such predicates susceptible to soritical reasoning, i.e. reasoning that leads to some version of the notorious sorites paradox. READ MORE
