Sammanfattning : As a countermeasure to global warming, vehicles with low carbon emissions are being investigated by promoting lean-burn engines and high combustion efficiencies. However, one limitation to the increasing use of these engines is the need to develop corresponding catalytic systems for controlling the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in their lean exhaust. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with influences of material formulation on the performance of silicone rubber high voltage insulators in a coastal environment. Samples and insulators with known differences in material compositions have been used in this task. In the first step, a screening test with cylindrical samples was initiated. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Lignin, one of the three main components of lignocellulosic biomass, is the second most abundant organic polymer found on Earth. Nowadays, most of the lignin (almost 99%) produced in the Kraft pulping process is used as internal fuel. LÄS MER
4. Telomeres and the brain : an investigation into the relationships of leukocyte telomere length with functional and structural attributes of the brain
Sammanfattning : Telomeres are the outermost parts of linear chromosomes. They consist of tandemly repeated non-coding short nucleotide sequences (TTAGGG in all vertebrates), in humans spanning over the last 2 to 15 kilobase pairs of the chromosome. Due to the end-replication problem, telomeres shorten with each cellular division. LÄS MER
5. Mechanisms of lipofuscin/ceroid accumulation and its impact on the function of the lysosomal system
Sammanfattning : The accumulation of lipofuscin - an electron-dense, autofluorescent, polymeric, intralysosomal substance - is a recognized hallmark of aging postmitotic cells. Ceroid- a substance very close, or perhaps even identical, to lipofuscin - is a characteristic of various pathological processes, such as lysosomal storage diseases, malnutrition, atherosclerosis, oxidative stress, ionizing radiation, etc. LÄS MER
