  1. 1. Unfolding the role of Ire1 and DNAJB1 in Parkinson’s disease

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Emma Källstig; [2017]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a movement disorder of the brain which is hallmarked by the presence of large protein-rich cytoplasmic aggregates, called Lewy bodies (LBs), in the neurons. The protein α-synuclein (α-syn) is abundant in these aggregates, and can itself form aggregates. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Effect of Protein Corona on Gold Nanoparticles Aggregation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Nada Abdulla; [2015]
    Keywords : cow serum and IgG; PGB1; corona; Gold nanoparticles; Protein Science; proteinvetenskap; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Nanoparticles (NPs) are the particles between 1 and 100 nm. They are widely used in the medical field as delivery vehicles, therapeutics and contrast agents in cancer diagnosis and treatment. There are different types of NPs divided according to the source of used materials. READ MORE

  3. 3. Elucidation of the role of the MICOS complex in signal transduction from mitocondrial DNA nucleoids

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi

    Author : Michael Hellman; [2015]
    Keywords : tillämpad biokemi; applied biochemistry; Chemistry; Technology and Engineering; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : The MICOS complex protein MicF has recently been identified to play a vital role in the mitochondrial DNA inheritance checkpoint, a control system that halts cell cycle progression in cells lacking mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). We show in this report that another member of the complex, MicA, also plays an important role in the mtDNA inheritance checkpoint as its deletion led to cell cycle progression in cells lacking mtDNA (Rho0 cells).

  4. 4. Subcellular localization of a Netrual Invertase from hybrid aspens (Populus tremula x tremuloides)

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology

    Author : Marcus Andersson; [2014]
    Keywords : developing wood; localization; hybrid aspen; localization; Neutral Invertase; populus;

    Abstract : Neutral Invertases are sucrose hydrolyzing enzymes whose role in plants remains to be understood. This thesis focuses on the subcellular localization of a neutral invertase from hybrid aspen (Populus tremula × Populus tremuloides), which shows increased transcript levels during secondary cell wall formation.

  5. 5. Quantification of protein fractions in aqueous phases of whey and emulsions

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management

    Author : Ayotunde Omolade Alawode; [2014]
    Keywords : whey proteins; WPC 35; emulsion; protein denaturation; native protein; aggregated protein; particle size distribution;

    Abstract : Aqueous 6.86% whey protein concentrate 35 (WPC 35) solution was heated at the temperature of 70°C for 10, 15 and 20 minutes respectively to quantify the amount of native protein, soluble protein aggregates and insoluble protein aggregates in the heated samples. READ MORE
