  1. 1. Variability and adaptation in the contractile system of smooth muscle

    Författare :Mia Löfgren; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; essential light chain; desmin; shortening velocity; integrin; intermediate filament; hypertrophy; non-muscle myosin; smooth muscle; myosin; heavy chain; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examines the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the large diversity of the contractile properties in smooth muscle. Six studies, I-VI, are included. I: a slow smooth muscle (aorta) has a different nucleotide and phosphate dependence compared to a fast type (taenia coli). LÄS MER

  2. 2. On the Size and Shape of Polymers and Polymer Complexes : A Computational and Light Scattering Study

    Författare :Tomas Edvinsson; Terence Cosgrove; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Monte Carlo simulations; grafted polymers; shape description; folding complexity; clustering; percolation algorithm; light scattering; end-capped polymers; inclusion complexes; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; Physical Chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Detailed characterization of size and shape of polymers, and development of methods to elucidate the mechanisms behind shape transitions are central issues in this thesis. In particular we characterize grafted polymer chains under confinement in terms of the chain entanglement complexity and mean molecular size. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular Mechanisms Optimizing Photosynthesis during High Light Stress in Plants

    Författare :Lan Yin; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Arabidopsis; light stress; photosynthesis; chloroplast;

    Sammanfattning : Oxygenic photosynthesis is the process by which plants, algae and cyanobacteria use solar energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into molecular oxygen and carbohydrates. Photosynthesis sustains life on Earth since it provides not only energy for individual growth, but also represents the starting point of the food chain for most living organisms. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Optics for Earth Observation Instruments

    Författare :Arvid Hammar; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; stray light; satellites; reflector optics; spline horns; telescopes; measurements; off-axis; diamond turning; THz; tolerancing; free-form mirrors; scientific instruments;

    Sammanfattning : The optical system is an essential part of every remote sensing instrument used for detecting electromagnetic waves. Careful design, fabrication and characterization is therefore crucial, especially for satellite-borne missions where the possibility of post-launch repairs is highly limited. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Function of contractile and cytoskeletal proteins in smooth muscle: Effects of hypertrophy and age and desmin removal in a transgenic animal

    Författare :Rolf Sjuve; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transgenic mouse; desmin; embryonic myosin; isoforms; myosin heavy chain; age; smooth muscle; hypertrophy; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : In man, the urinary bladder responds to an urinary outflow obstruction with a pronounced dilatation and growth of the bladder wall. This clinical situation can be mimicked in rat by creation of a partial urinary outflow obstruction and the papers included in the present thesis use this animal model to address questions regarding the adaptive changes in the smooth muscle of the growing bladder.
