  1. 1. Protein Acetylation – A Multifunctional Regulator of TGF-β Signaling

    Författare :Maria Simonsson; Johan Ericsson; Eva Grönroos; Marikki Laiho; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Cell biology; TGF-β; Acetylation; Deacetylation; Acetyltransferase; HDAC; Smad; Transcription; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) is a member of a large family of cytokines that regulate many crucial events in cells, including proliferation, differentiation, migration and apoptosis. Deregulated TGF-β signaling is associated with various forms of cancers and developmental disorders. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Acetylation of Solid Wood. Wood Properties and Process Development

    Författare :Pia Larsson Brelid; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :microwave heating; deformation; wood; hardness; adhesive bonding; power penetration depth; shear strength; delamination; acetylation; pH; bending strength; dielectric properties; stability;

    Sammanfattning : The influence of acetylation on selected wood properties has been determined for Scandinavian pine and spruce wood, in order to predict the behavior of acetylated wood when it is used in different applications. Only minor differences in both bending strength and the modulus of elasticity were obtained for acetylated wood when compared with unmodified wood, and can, for practical applications, be considered unaltered.

  3. 3. Light-Induced Yellowing of High-Yield Pulps. The Effect of Acetylation

    Författare :Magnus Paulsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :yellowing; mechanical properties; hydroxyl groups; phenolic groups; paper; high-yield pulps; chromophores; model compounds; acetylation; inhibition;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is a contribution to the understanding of the mechanism of photoyellowing of high-yield pulps. It also gives some general information about the reactivity of different functional groups in lignin towards acetic anhydride. LÄS MER

  4. 4. High-Performance Composites from Modified Wood Fiber

    Författare :Mats Westin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Kraft lignin; fiberboard; lignocellulosic fiber; durability; wood fiber; mechanical properties; dimensional stability; decay resistance; acetylation; composite;

    Sammanfattning : The objective of this work was to produce and evaluate high-performance wood fiber composites. High-performance was defined as: high dimensional stability and a high durability, including resistance to wood-decaying organisms (fungi, bacteria, and insects). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Wood Hemicelluloses - Fundamental Insights on Biological and Technical Properties

    Författare :Jennie Berglund; Mikael Lindström; Gunnar Henriksson; Francisco Vilaplana; Jakob Wohlert; Martin Lawoko; Maija Tenkanen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; hemicellulose; wood; glucomannan; xylan; structure; acetylation; flexibility; solubility; interaction with cellulose; stability.; hemicellulosa; trä; glukomannan; xylan; struktur; acetylering; flexibilitet; löslighet; interaktion med cellulosa; stabilitet.; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Sammanfattning : Hemicelluloses are a group of heterogeneous polysaccharides representing around 30 % of wood where the dominating types are xylans, glucomannans and xyloglucans. Hemicelluloses complex molecular structure makes it difficult to understand the relationship between structure and properties entirely, and their biological role is not yet fully verified. LÄS MER
