  1. 1. Development and validation of a novel quantitative PCR analysis method for HIV-1

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Josefine Sundgren; [2020]
    Keywords : HIV-1; qPCR; Octapharma; Taqman; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The major problem when developing primers and probe sets for detection of HIV-1 is its high genetic variability and strong ability to mutate. HIV-1 is divided into four groups, M, N, O, P based on genetic similarities, and there are more than 70 different circulating recombinant forms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Do Nanoparticles Affect Neuronal Function? - Establishment of a Microelectrode-Based Assay

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi

    Author : Markus Nylander; [2020]
    Keywords : Microelectrode array; gold nanoparticles; silver nanoparticles; immunocytochemistry; scanning electron microscopy; human neural progenitor cells; human induced pluripotent stem cells; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Biology and Life Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Nanomaterials are used extensively in industry and daily life but comparatively little is known about the possible health effects. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are two metal nanoparticles that have been intensively studied. READ MORE

  3. 3. How Topography Influences the Fate of Human Neural Progenitor Cells

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Jacob Karlström; [2020]
    Keywords : biomaterials; cell culture; electrospinning; nanofibers; 3d; neural progenitor cells; in vitro models; nanotopography; blebbistatin; mechanotransduction; nucleus analysis; immunocytochemistry; differentiation; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Biology and Life Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Novel biomimetic three-dimensional scaffolds have emerged over the last decades, and are promising for applications in regenerative therapies, as well as in in vitro disease modelling and drug testing. Thanks to their added dimension, these scaffolds are able to more accurately mimic the topography of native cellular microenvironments compared to traditionally used two-dimensional culture substrates.

  4. 4. CHARACTERIZATION OF RECOMBINANT GROWTH FACTOR BASED COSMECEUTICALS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Emma Johansson; [2019]
    Keywords : Cosmeceuticals; applied biochemistry; protein; protein analysis; tillämpad biokemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Skin integrity is something that matters to a lot of people since it makes up a protective barrier but also contributes to a beautiful appearance. To maintain skin integrity there is a wide range of skin care products on the market to choose from. However, lately one particular product group called "cosmeceuticals” have increased. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of Different Laminins on Human Neural Progenitor Cells Cultured in 3D Electrospun Fibers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Karl Vesterlund; [2019]
    Keywords : two-dimensional; three-dimensional; Alamar Blue; cell culture; drug development; extra-cellular matrix; electrospinning; immunocytochemistry; laminin; polycaprolactone; polymerase chain reaction; western blot; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Technology and Engineering; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : A low success rate of drug candidates in clinical trials, and especially in brain research, motivates development of better screening models. Hence, in neuroscience and many other fields of Life Science, development of more physiological relevant experimental cell-based models is motivated. READ MORE
