    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk biokemi och mikrobiologi

    Author : Farhana Manzoor; [2020]
    Keywords : Bovine meat and milk factors; multiple sclerosis; immunoprecipitation co-immunoprecipitation; protein dimers; mass spectrometry; immunodetection; cesium chloride density gradient centrifugation; sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis; vesicle; particle; interaction partner; pull-down assay.;

    Abstract : Introduction: Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMF) frequently isolated from bovine meat and milk, are discussed as putative causative agents for breast, colon and possibly other cancers. The hypothesis was formulated based on earlier correlative studies indicating that BMMFs could indirectly trigger inflammation, accumulate mutational events via reactive oxygen and nitrogen species production which eventually provokes tumor formation.

  2. 2. Patterning of the neural tube: A 3D computational modelling approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik

    Author : Ariane Ernst; [2019]
    Keywords : gene regulatory networks; neural tube patterning; patterning of the neural tube; dopaminergic neurons; parkinson s disease; computational modelling; stem cell; GRN; Biology and Life Sciences; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s can be treated with stem-cell derived specialized neurons. In order to achieve precise directed neural differentiation in vitro we need to understand the gene regulatory mechanisms behind in vivo neural tube patterning. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Synovial fluid components as synergistic lubricants in articular joint models

    University essay from KTH/Kemi

    Author : Sixuan Li; [2019]
    Keywords : synergistic lubrication; synovial fluid; biolubrication; DPPC; hyaluronic acid; Mini-Traction Machine; macro- and microscale; profilometer;

    Abstract : The excellent lubrication present within mammalian synovial joints attracted scientific interest, and some close-to-realistic models were applied to study the mechanism in vitro. In this project, the synergistic lubrication of synovial fluid was investigated by using 1,2-Dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphatidylcholine (DPPC), hyaluronic acid (HA), and phosphate-buffered saline (PBS buffer) to mimic the synovial fluid.

  5. 5. 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
