1. Red algal starch metabolism : effects of endosymbionts and nutrient status on starch metabolising enzymes
Sammanfattning : Many different organisms occur as endosymbionts of red algae and while some are highly pathogenic others have little effect on the host. An endosymbiotic fungus, found in our culture of Gracilariopsis sp., was characterised and identified as a Chytridiomycete. It was named Thalassochytrium gracilariopsidis and probably belongs to a new order. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Vitamin A (retinoids) is a nutrient that plays a central role in development and remains essential for cell growth and differentiation throughout life. Dioxins are polychlorinated organic pollutants known to negatively affect the storage and body clearance of retinoids. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells is the sequence of events that starts with glucose uptake and ends with the fusion of insulin granules with the plasma membrane through Ca2+-triggered exocytosis. Phosphoinositides are minor components of all cellular membranes, yet play fundamental roles as regulators of many cellular processes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Insulin secretion from β-cells is essential for glucose homeostasis and is often dysregulated in diabetes. Intracellular Ca2+ and membrane lipids cooperate to control insulin secretion with high spatial and temporal precision. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In this thesis we explore in particular the dynamics of a special type of quasi-particle in pi-conjugated materials termed polaron, the origin of which is intimately related to the strong interactions between the electronic and the vibrational degrees of freedom within these systems. In order to conduct such studies with the particular focus of each appended paper, we simultaneously solve the time-dependent Schrödinger equation and the lattice equation of motion with a three-dimensional extension of the famous Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) model Hamiltonian.
