  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. Affinity of Alpha-Synuclein and Lipid Vesicle Interaction

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Ahmed Masaada; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Alpha-synuclein is a protein involved in several neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s, where it has been observed to form amyloid fibrils or Lewy bodies. However, how or to what extent alpha-synuclein is involved is not known. READ MORE

  3. 3. Formation of Monolayered Phospholipids using Molecular Dynamics

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Molekyl- och kondenserade materiens fysik

    Author : Rebecka Lexelius; [2018]
    Keywords : phospholipids; lipids; DPPC; monolayer; molecular dynamics; MD; molecular dynamics simulation; GROMACS; biological membrane; lipid concentration; biophysics;

    Abstract : The very fundamental properties of biological membranes can be understood by studying their formation. This sets a good foundation for research related to how the membranes interact with organic molecules and ions; something of great value in the quest of explaining transport phenomena through cell membranes.

  4. 4. Constructing supported lipid bilayers from native cell membranes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Biofysikalisk kemi

    Author : Tommy Dam; [2018]
    Keywords : T cells; Model membrane systems; Supported lipid bilayers; SLB; biophysical chemistry; biofysikalisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The aim of this MSc-project was to investigate whether it is possible to incorporate native cell membrane components from Jurkat T cells into supported lipid bilayers, SLBs, to produce a model membrane system better resembling the native cell membranes in T cells. The procedure of forming native-like SLBs (nSLB) was adapted from an existing protocol and is done through the deposition of hybrid vesicles onto a cleaned glass slide. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Axonal Membrane in Traumatic Brain Injury

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknik och hälsa (STH)

    Author : Zohreh Alaei; [2017]
    Keywords : Traumatic brain injury; diffuse axonal injury; molecular simulation; axonal bilayer; strain; shear force; nano-scale deformation; lipid bilayer;

    Abstract : The following project presents in silico investigation of axonal damage in Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI). When axons face a shear force, orientation of the lipids in the axonal membrane gets disrupted. READ MORE
