Sammanfattning : Membrane fusion is essential for nerve-cell communication, for protein transport between cell organelles and the cell-membrane and for enabling the merger between virus and host membranes during virus infection. In this work, cell-membrane mimics were constructed and evaluated as models for studies of the membrane-fusion process. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Lipid bilayers are a central component of both the structure and function of biological membranes, like the one surrounding cells of living organisms. Since the lipid bilayer provides a host matrix for membrane proteins, which perform many of the specialized tasks in cells like energy, signal and material transduction, researchers have tried to develop artificial model membranes to study a variety of membrane protein functions.

Sammanfattning : The ability to sense and accommodate to an ever-changing environment is crucial for the survival of living organisms. Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) ion channels comprise a large superfamily of cation conducting membrane proteins that function as molecular sensors in diverse sensory processes including perception of light, taste, smell, sound, touch and temperature.

4. Waveguide Evanescent-Field Microscopy for Label-Free Monitoring of Biological Nanoparticles: Fabrication, Characterization and Application
Sammanfattning : The recent development of microscopy methods, biological assays and bioanalytical sensors has significantly advanced the understanding of biological systems. Surface-based bioanalytical sensors have in recent years gained increased interest thanks to improvements in sensitivity and simplicity to use. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Biological nanoparticles (BNPs) are nano-sized lipid vesicles of biological origin, which are involved in multiple biological processes. BNP characterization techniques are critical for improving the understanding of how these particles contribute to cellular communication, viral infections and drug-delivery applications. LÄS MER
