  1. 1. On the binding of growth-promoting polyamines to proteoglycans: Implications for growth-regulation and polycation-mediated gene transfer

    Författare :Mattias Belting; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; cationic lipid.; gene transfer; gene therapy; cell growth; polyamine transport; spermine; polyamine; growth-inhibition; heparan sulphate; dermatan sulphate; Proteoglycan; glycosaminoglycan; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Sammanfattning : Initial investigations were directed at studying the interaction between polyamines and various glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). The polyamine spermine displayed binding to dermatan sulphate (DS) and heparan sulphate (HS) with similar (Kd, 3.9 x 10-4 M) and higher (Kd, 0.37 x 10-6 M) affinity, respectively, than to DNA.

  2. 2. Fermentation of Lignocellulosic Hydrolysates: Inhibition and Detoxification

    Författare :Eva Palmqvist; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fermentation strategies; mechanisms; identification; inhibition; lignocellulosic hydrolysates; Ethanol; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; virology; virologi; mykologi; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; bacteriology; Microbiology;

    Sammanfattning : The ethanol yield and productivity obtained during fermentation of lignocellulosic hydrolysates is decreased due to the presence of inhibiting compounds, such as weak acids, furans and phenolic compounds produced during hydrolysis. Evaluation of the effect of various biological, physical and chemical detoxification treatments by fermentation assays using Saccharomyces cerevisiae was used to characterise inhibitors. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Tumor Growth Inhibition and Cartilage Differentiation

    Författare :Laura Varas; Immunologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicinska vetenskaper; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; mesenchymal stem cell; Biomedical sciences; tumor growth inhibition; FGF2; cartilage; integrin alpha11beta1; integrin alpha10beta1;

    Sammanfattning : The work presented in this thesis has been focused on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). In the two first studies, the effects of MSCs on tumor growth and development in vitro and in vivo was investigated. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Growth control mechanisms in normal and neoplastic mammalian cells

    Författare :Mozhgan Afrakhte; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; PDGF-AA; TGF-beta; Inhibitory SMADs; Growth inhibition; CDK; CKI; Cdc25A; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Genetics; genetik;

    Sammanfattning : The main theme of the studies presented in this thesis is, the growth control mechanisms whose loss in normal cells predispose to or cause cancer. The balance between growth inhibitory and stimulatory mechanisms is crucial for the development and maintenance of a normal animal. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Too close for comfort : The role of Contact-Dependent growth Inhibition (CDI) in interbacterial competition and cooperation

    Författare :Marcus Wäneskog; Sanna Koskiniemi; Paul Rainey; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bacterial interactions; cell-cell binding; contact-dependent growth inhibition; CDI; CdiB; CdiA; CdiI; outer-membrane receptor; BamA; OmpC; OmpF; extracellular toxin delivery; Toxin-Antitoxin; TA-system; persister cells; stress tolerance; stress response; rpoS; rssB; quorum sensing; multicellular behavior; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Sammanfattning : Contact-Dependent growth inhibition (CDI) was discovered in 2005 in the E. coli isolate EC93. Since then our knowledge of CDI systems and their impact on bacterial communities have increased exponentially. LÄS MER
