    Author : Louise Holmgren; [2014]
    Keywords : Rhodotorula glutinis; sesamin; long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids; altering the fatty acid profile;

    Abstract : Rhodotorula glutinis has been one of the top candidates among oleaginous yeast for several microbial lipid applications, such as biofuel production. In this project the effect of sesamin on the fatty acid profile was investigated by culturing R. READ MORE

  5. 5. Selenium in Swedish sheep production

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Agricultural Research for Northern Sweden

    Author : Sanna Linder; [2014]
    Keywords : selenium; sheep;

    Abstract : Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element that is involved in several physiological functions in mammals. Mostly, Se is bound to proteins, many of them with enzymatic functions. A group of seleno-depending enzymes, glutathione peroxidases (GSH-Px’s), are important as antioxidants and protects against free radicals. READ MORE
