  1. 1. Applying the Pump and Leak Hypothesis. An experimental and theoretical investigation of the principles of ion regulation and excitability in the crustacean stretch receptor neuron

    Sammanfattning : An invertebrate nerve cell preparation, the lobster stretch receptor neuron, was investigated with respect to maintenance of its resting voltage, intracellular ion concentrations and excitability using voltage clamp technique and ion-selective microelectrodes. It was found that the resting voltage (-65 mV) of microelectrode impaled cells is caused by (a) a homogenous population of K+ channels which we denoted as leak channels (b) an electrogenic and voltage-dependent Na-K pump current and (c) an inward microelectrode-induced "impalement" current carried mainly by Na+.

  4. 4. Sex and violence in lobsters - a smelly business

    Författare :Malin Skog; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dominance; urine signals; recognition; Aggressive behaviours; intermoult mating; sexual dimorphism; European lobster; chemical communication; Homarus gammarus; aesthetasc morphology;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to study the chemical communication involved in aggressive and reproductive behaviours in the European lobster (Homarus gammarus). Both male and female H. gammarus established and maintained dominance, but the sexes used different strategies for dominance maintenance. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Quantum Chemical Studies of Protein-Bound Chromophores, UV-Light Induced DNA Damages, and Lignin Formation

    Författare :Bo Durbeej; Leif Eriksson; Tim Clark; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantum chemistry; quantum chemistry; calculations; density functional theory; excited states; photochemistry; chromophores; absorption spectra; bathochromic shift; isomerization; UV radiation; DNA damages; cycloaddition reactions; photoenzymic repair; electron transfer; lignin; polymerization; phenoxy radicals; dilignols; Kvantkemi; Quantum chemistry; Kvantkemi;

    Sammanfattning : Quantum chemical methods have been used to provide a better understanding of the photochemistry of astaxanthin and phytochromobilin; the photoenzymic repair of UV-light induced DNA damages; and the formation of lignin. The carotenoid astaxanthin (AXT) is responsible for the colouration of lobster shell. LÄS MER
