  1. 1. Effects of cold treatment on Arabidopsis thaliana : a study in the change of gene expression levels in some selected COR-genes and composition of important cell membrane lipids of A. thaliana

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Artur Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Arabidopsis thaliana; cold stress; membrane lipids; gene expression; quantification; PCR; extraction;

    Abstract : The effect of cold stress in Arabidopsis thaliana, mouse cress, was examined. The object was to investigate how gene expression and membrane lipid configuration was affected in seedlings when being treated with low temperature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Kloning, överuttryck och upprening av växtakvaporinet AtSIP1;1 i Escherichia coli

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Johan Zhu; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Heterologous overexpression of proteins signifies that the encoding gene of a protein in one organism is expressed in another host organism that normally does not have that gene in its genome. In basic biochemical research, this is an important method for studying various protein functions such as activity and interactions in biological processes, as well as obtaining sufficient amounts to determine protein structures.

  3. 3. Overexpression of the plant aquaporin AtSIP2;1 in Escherichia coli

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Hiep Nguyen; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : In molecular biology and biochemistry, it is key to have large amounts of the isolated protein at hand when performing functional and structural studies. Unfortunately, the levels of an individual membrane protein in native tissues is often exceptionally low, making it challenging to purify a sufficient amount. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of pectin medifications during host invasion and infection by the parasitic plant Phtheirospermum japonicum

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Plant Biology

    Author : Martina Leso; [2020]
    Keywords : Hausrorium; Phtheirospermum japonicum; Pectin modification; PME; PMEI; EMS-screen;

    Abstract : Parasitic plants are organisms that feed on other plants, often distantly related to them evolutionarily. This feeding strategy causes them to be a major threat to agriculture, negatively affecting the yields of many staple crops like sorghum and rice. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterizaion of the mechanism underlying auxin-induced seed arrest in Arabidopsis thaliana

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Plant Biology

    Author : Sowmiya Devi Venkatesan; [2020]
    Keywords : endosperm; hybridization barriers; triploid block; auxins; RNA Polymerase IV; RNA silencing;

    Abstract : In flowering plants, seeds are produced as a result of double fertilization, whereby the haploid egg cell and the diploid central cell fuse with one of the two haploid sperm cells giving rise to a diploid embryo and a triploid endosperm, respectively. The endosperm serves as the major nutrient source for the developing embryo yet the molecular mechanisms pertaining to its development are not fully understood. READ MORE
