  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. Vägsaltets påverkan på närliggande vegetation, mark samt närliggande slitlager

    University essay from SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Author : Jakob Frängsmyr; Stina Nilsson; [2020]
    Keywords : vägsalt; struktur; halkbekämpning; jord; lignoser; påverkan;

    Abstract : Syftet med detta arbete är att göra en litteraturstudie och sammanställa fakta om hur vägsalt (NaCl, natriumklorid) påverkar vår stadsmiljö samt att få en överblick hur vegetation, slitlager och markytor i närheten av saltbehandlade vägar påverkas av den höga saltningsintensiteten. I arbetet ingår också en kartläggning av vilka andra alternativ och metoder till salt som provats för att eventuellt kunna vara likvärdiga eller bättre i sin funktion och inte vara lika skadliga som salt är för miljön.

  3. 3. Nitrogen and phosphorus analysis in field cultivation of Pak choi : effect of two different compositions of fertilisers on plant and soil nutrient status

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Joubin Haji Mirza Ali; [2020]
    Keywords : aged cattle manure; fertilisers; nitrogen; Pak choi; nutrient analysis; phosphorus; retting digest; waste materials;

    Abstract : This pilot study was implemented to reflect the delivery and the plant availability of nitrogen and phosphorus in response to different compositions of fertilisers approved for organic farming in Sweden. The experimental approach was to compare the concentration of nitrogen and phosphorus in plant sap of Pak choi plants grown in soil treated with different organic waste such as aged cattle manure and a liquid retting digest derived from the biogas industry, with plants grown in soil treated with a blend of pelleted organic fertilisers derived from the Swedish slaughterhouse industry.

  4. 4. Re-sourcing soil fertility : assessing the soil amendment potential of farm household resources and wastes in Bolo Silasie, Ethiopia

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Soil and Environment

    Author : Jorunn Hellman; [2020]
    Keywords : nutrient recovery; manure management; ecological sanitation; material flow analysis; East African agriculture;

    Abstract : The global agriculture of today is to a high degree dependent on mineral fertilisers that through a constant accumulation of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) in the biosphere contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and eutrophication of water bodies. At the same time, agricultural productivity around the world is largely constrained by low inputs of plant nutrients. READ MORE

  5. 5. Runoff modelling and assessment of treatment wetland performance using a triangular form based multiple flow algorithm

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Clara Hübinger; [2019]
    Keywords : Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Eutrophication is one of the biggest threats to aquatic ecosystems. As nutrient load increases in marine environments in the Öresund and Baltic Sea and dead zones grow, Swedish municipalities further their efforts in limiting the amount of nutrients delivered into those environments.
