  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. 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. Simulating Facilitation in a Spiking Neural Network

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Alexander Kuzmin; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Many insects are able to detect, isolate and track small targets that move quickly against a dynamic background. This ability is enabled by a group of neurons called small target motion detectors (STMD). These neurons, among other properties, have a type of short term memory called response facilitation.

  5. 5. Studie i att utöka arealen rikkärr i Skåne - Med exempel på hur tre rikkärr kan utökas

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i biologi

    Author : Marcus Ljungdahl Brönmark; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Rich fens contribute with numerous ecosystem services, such as the highest biodiversity found among wetlands, water purification, carbon sequestration, hydrological services, recreational and educational services are all part of services provided from rich fens. Drainage and land-use change has severely damaged or destroyed these services in many regions of Europe and Sweden; restoration plans are needed to change this trend. READ MORE
