  1. 1. The role of salt inducible kinases in the regulation of the mammalian target of rapamycin pathway in adipocytes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Sulochana Kotresh Jali; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Salt inducible kinase 2 (SIK2) is found abundantly in adipose tissue and may have a role in the development of diabetes. SIK2 is downregulated in insulin-resistant and obese individuals, thereby providing a new potential target for therapeutic solutions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Insulin and Glucose Stimulation on the Anti-Viral Response in Bronchial Epithelial Cells

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Omeyme Naqchi; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Asthma exacerbation is among the leading causes of mortality and morbidity. Bronchial epithelial cells (BECs) are of interest because they represent not only a physical barrier against infections, but also a biological barrier between the inhaled agents, such as allergens, and the immune system.

  3. 3. A comparison of different orthogonal techniques for the investigation of the conformational stability of NIST mAb in liquid formulations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Madeleine Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Pharmaceutical technology; Läkemedelsteknologi; Biology and Life Sciences; Chemistry; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A great challenge during early development of medicinal antibodies is to determine the stability of the candidates. This is required to be able to select the candidates with the greatest developability. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. 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
