  1. 1. Plant Species Composition and Diversity in Cliff and Mountain Ecosystems

    Författare :Henrik Antonsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :cliff ecology; bryophytes; biodiversity; beta diversity; dispersal; facilitation; nurse plant; plant-plant interactions; Silene acaulis; stress;

    Sammanfattning : Ecosystems today are under increasing pressure from a rapidly changing climate, changes in land-use, habitat fragmentation and degradation and increasing anthropogenic disturbance. Studying drivers of biodiversity patterns is of increasing importance for understanding the dynamics of communities and their reactions and adaptation to changes in the future. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The conserved methionines in the chloroplast small heat shock protein - Role in chaperone-substrate interactions and effects of methionine sulfoxidation on chaperone activity

    Författare :Niklas Gustavsson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Metabolism; Biochemistry; oxidative stress; thermostability; temperature stress; stress tolerance; sHsp; protein aggregation; molecular chaperone; Heat stress; methionine sulfoxidation; Biokemi; metabolism; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Sammanfattning : The chloroplast-localized small heat shock protein (sHsp) Hsp21 belongs to the family of alpha-crystallin like sHsps which form large oligomeric structures and protect partly unfolded aggregation-prone proteins against aggregation. The main focus for this thesis has been on the highly conserved methionines in Hsp21. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Control of reactive oxygen species homeostasis in response to environmental stress

    Författare :Malgorzata Plaszczyca; Katharina Pawlowski; Jean-Jacques Drevon; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Stress; antioxidant defense; ascorbate peroxidase; aerenchyma; actinorhiza; Plant physiology; Växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology; växtfysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Plants are exposed to various fluctuations in their environmental conditions - light intensity, temperature, water status - and have to adapt in order to survive. Plant acclimatory responses can include the formation of new tissues, e.g., aerenchyma, or the activation of defense systems, e. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Calcium transporting ATPases in plant cells

    Författare :Malin Olbe; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Triticum aestivum; calcium; Brij 58; calmodulin; Ca2 signalling; inside-out; endoplasmic reticulum; plant; plasma membrane; proteolysis; P-type ATPase; spinach; Spinacea oleracea; trypsin; two-phase; wheat.; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Plant cells carry Ca2+ ATPases to maintain the low resting level of cytosolic Ca2+ (0.1-0.2 µM) found in all eukaryotes. Plant Ca2+ ATPases are mainly located in the plasma membrane, the endoplasmic reticulum and in the vacuolar membrane, and consequently large Ca2+ gradients are created across these membranes.

  5. 5. The circadian clock in annuals and perennials : coordination of Growth with Environmental Rhythms

    Författare :Mikael Johansson; Maria E. Eriksson; Paul Devlin; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; circadian clock; arabidopsis; populus; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Plant biotechnology; Växtbioteknik; Plant physiology; Växtfysiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : Since the first signs of life on planet earth, organisms have had to adapt to the daily changes between light and dark, and high and low temperatures. This has led to the evolution of an endogenous time keeper, known as the circadian clock. LÄS MER
