  1. 1. Exploring the Interplay of Lipids and Membrane Proteins

    Författare :Candan Ariöz; Åke Wieslander; Daniel O. Daley; Malcolm East; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Membrane lipids; membrane proteins; anionic lipids; membrane remodeling; intracellular vesicles; model membrane systems; glycosyltransferase; Escherichia coli; lipid composition; fatty acid modification; membrane curvature; bacterial homeoviscous adaptation; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : The interplay between lipids and membrane proteins is known to affect membrane protein topology and thus have significant effect (control) on their functions. In this PhD thesis, the influence of lipids on the membrane protein function was studied using three different membrane protein models. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The Ins and Outs of Membrane Proteins : Topology Studies of Bacterial Membrane Proteins

    Författare :Mikaela Rapp; Gunnar von Heijne; Christopher Tate; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; membrane protein; topology; dual topology; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : α-helical membrane proteins comprise about a quarter of all proteins in a cell and carry out a wide variety of essential cellular functions. This thesis is focused on topology analyses of bacterial membrane proteins. The topology describes the two-dimensional structural arrangement of a protein relative to the membrane. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Pathogen entry mechanisms and endocytic responses to plasma membrane damage

    Författare :Lars Nygård Skalman; Richard Lundmark; Kristian Riesbeck; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocytosis; plasma membrane; pathogens; virus; bacterial membrane vesicles; Helicobacter pylori; adenovirus 37; listeriolysin O; pore-forming toxins; membrane repair;

    Sammanfattning : Endocytosis is a fundamental cellular process by which cells transport material from the outside to the inside of the cell through the formation of membrane invaginations that bud off from the plasma membrane. This process is important for nutrient uptake, regulating cell surface receptors and the overall plasma membrane composition. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Roles of membrane vesicles in bacterial pathogenesis

    Författare :Svitlana Vdovikova; Sun Nyunt Wai; Richard Lundmark; Ann-Beth Jonsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Membrane vesicles; autophagy; pore-forming toxin; pore formation; Listeria monocytogenes; Vibrio cholerae; virulence factor; PrtV protease; listeriolysin O; V. cholerae cytolysin; mikrobiologi; Microbiology; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : The production of membranous vesicles is observed to occur among organisms from all domains of the tree of life spanning prokaryotes (bacteria, archaea) and eukaryotes (plants, animals and fungi). Bacterial release of membrane-derived vesicles (MVs) has been studied most extensively in cases of Gram-negative species and implicating their outer membrane in formation of extracellular MVs.

  5. 5. Immersed flat-sheet membrane bioreactors for lignocellulosic bioethanol production

    Författare :Amir Mahboubi; Huu Hao Ngo; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Lignocellulosic bioethanol; immersed membrane bioreactor; membrane fouling; reverse membrane bioreactor; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Sammanfattning : The rising awareness of the environmental, economic and socio-political impacts of over-exploitation of fossil-based fuel and energy sources, have motivated the transition toward more sustainable and renewable energy sources. Lignocellulosic materials (e.g. LÄS MER
