  1. 1. Fatty acid composition in Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) fed with red yeast biomass : a comparison between large and small specimens

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Sofia Jacobsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Fatty acid composition; lipid content; oleaginous yeast; Arctic char Salvelinus alpinus ; aquaculture;

    Abstract : Oleaginous yeast has shown to be a promising alternative to replace vegetable oils in fish feed. A problem in aquaculture is that different growth rates can be observed among farm-raised fish, supressing the productions full potential. When different growth rates are observed, it can be questioned if the fish assimilate the feed to the same extent. READ MORE

  2. 2. Diffusion-Based MR Methods for Measuring Water Exchange

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Shan Cai; [2022]
    Keywords : diffusion MRI; water exchange rate; membrane permeability; double diffusion encoding; DDE;

    Abstract : Measuring transmembrane water exchange can provide potential biomarkers for tumors and brain disorders. Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) is a well-established tool that can non-invasively measure water exchange across cell membranes. Diffusion Exchange Spectroscopy (DEXSY) is one of the dMRI-based frameworks used to estimate exchange. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of strategies for construction of protease libraries in yeast.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi; Lunds universitet/Bioteknik

    Author : Sidharth Jaya Sankar; [2022]
    Keywords : Yeast; GFP-fusion technology; protease; applied microbiology; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Proteases are a group of enzymes that are involved in breaking down larger proteins into smaller polypeptides or single amino acids, and they are used in various applications. In this project, the potential of budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as host for the construction of protease libraries is evaluated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biologisk framställning av insektsferomon med enzymer från japansk feberbuske

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Felicia Edman; [2022]
    Keywords : Lindera obtusiloba; DGAT; PDAT; ovanliga fettsyror; fettsyrasyntes; transformation; Gateway-kloning; råolja;

    Abstract : Sedan klimatförändringarna fått större plats i dagens forskning har även kraven på förbättrade metoder i vår livsmedelsförsörjning ökat. Feromonfällor är idag en välkänd och uppskattad metod för att undvika användning av farliga insekticider. READ MORE

  5. 5. EXPRESSION OF SUGAR BEET HEMOGLOBIN IN PICHIA PASTORIS

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

    Author : Johan Pettersson; [2022]
    Keywords : Pichia pastoris; expression; sugar beet; hemoglobin; km71; ppic9; ppic3.5; phil-s1; applied biochemistry; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : People who don’t eat meat can suffer from iron deficiency due to the lower efficiency of absorption of non-heme iron compared to heme iron. The aim of this master thesis was to explore the possibilities of producing a plant-based alternative of heme-iron by evaluating the efficiency of expression of sugar beet hemoglobin in the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris.
