  1. 1. On the molecular mechanism of LHCII proteolysis during photoacclimation of photosystem II

    Författare :Dan-Hui Yang; Peter Horton; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Higher plants and green algae have a remarkable ability to respond to fluctuations in the light intensity. Plants adapted to low or high light regimes possess larger or smaller light-harvesting antennae respectively. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Environmental Contaminants, Recombination and Cancer : Investigations on the molecular mechanisms of spontaneous and induced recombination in the hprt gene of Chinese hamster cells

    Författare :Thomas Helleday; Mark Meuth; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :toxikologisk genetik; Genetic Toxicology;

    Sammanfattning : Recombination results in rearrangement of the genetic material contained in the chromosomes inherited from the mother and father and this process is also involved in repairing damage to the genome. Occasionally, the machinery that performs recombination malfunctions and this may lead to illegitimate recombination events which inactivate tumor suppressor genes or activate protooncogenes.

  3. 3. Documentation of Vital Signs in Electronic Health Records : A Patient Safety Issue

    Författare :Jean Stevenson-Ågren; Peter Bath; UK University of Sheffield; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; patient safety; vital signs; electronic health records; Health and Caring Sciences; Hälsovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aim: Hospitals in the developed world are increasingly adopting digital systems such as electronic health records (EHRs) for all kinds of documentation. This move means that traditional paper case notes and nursing records are often documented in EHRs. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Investigation of Carbon Reinforced UHMWPE Nanocomposites for use in Orthopaedics

    Författare :Silvia Suñer Moreno; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Maskinelement; Machine Elements;

    Sammanfattning : Over the lifetime of a person, the function of the natural hip joint can be altered due to trauma or disease and an artificial hip replacement may eventually be required. Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is considered the gold standard material for the acetabular cup in hip arthroplasties. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Barriers to growth and development in small firms

    Författare :Henrik Barth; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Growth; Development; Innovation; Barrier; Small firms; SME;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of the extended summary is to develop the understanding of the existence and reasons behind barriers to growth and development in small firms. More specifically, four questions are addressed: (1) What do we know about the term barrier, how can it be defined? (2) What types of barriers to growth and development have been identified? (3) How can barriers to growth and development be addressed in a framework? and (4) How do the results of the appended papers (Papers I-V) contribute to the research field of barriers to growth and development?A literature review was undertaken to answer the first two questions.
