  1. 1. Towards new computational tools for predicting toxicity

    Författare :Swapnil Chavan; Ian Nicholls; Scott Boyer; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Acute toxicity; chronic toxicity; hERG; k-NN; LD50; LOEL; Munro database; QSAR; read-across; toxicity; Medicinsk kemi; Medical Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : The toxicological screening of the numerous chemicals that we are exposed to requires significant cost and the use of animals. Accordingly, more efficient methods for the evaluation of toxicity are required to reduce cost and the number of animals used. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Environmental and health hazards of chemicals in plastic polymers and products

    Författare :Delilah Lithner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    Sammanfattning : Plastics are extremely diverse in terms of chemical composition, properties and possible applications, and are widely distributed in the society and the environment. In the last 15 years the global annual production has doubled, reaching 245 million tons in 2008. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Chemical Pollutants Released to the Marine Environment by Degradation of Plastic Debris

    Författare :Berit Gewert; Matthew MacLeod; Magnus Breitholtz; Merle Plassmann; Martin Wagner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plastic; microplastic; degradation; leachates; weathering; photo-oxidation; marine environment; toxicity; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Since the beginning of the mass production in the 1940s, plastic has been manufactured in quickly increasing amounts. Plastic debris accumulates in the environment and lately much attention has been drawn to the pollution in the world’s oceans. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Important phenomena related to tunnel fires are presented including both experimental and theoretical work. The main focus is on the large-scale fire tests performed in 2003, in the Runehamar tunnel in Norway. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster GSTE6 and E7; characterization, immobilization and transgenic overexpression

    Författare :Muhammad Aslam; Bengt Mannervik; Ralf Morgenstern; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glutathione transferases; drosophila melanogaster; isothiocyanates; toxicity; immobilization; kinetics; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Sammanfattning : Glutathione transferases (GSTs) are multifunctional enzymes that are universally distributed in most eukaryotes and prokaryotes. They play a pivotal role in the metabolism and detoxication of numerous endogenous and exogenous electrophiles by conjugating them with ubiquitous tripeptide glutathione. LÄS MER
