Sammanfattning : Rhodopsins are a family of light-sensitive proteins found in the cellular membranes of a wide range of living organisms. These membrane proteins share a common molecular architecture and are able to use light energy to perform a variety of different biological functions. LÄS MER
2. Generation and exploitation of proton motive force: Biochemical and structural analysis of three bacterial integral membrane proteins
Sammanfattning : Proton motive force, a necessity for all living cells, is generated and exploited by asignificant number of membrane-bound enzymes and transporters. The focus of thisthesis was to understand the physiological relevance, structure and mechanism of threesuch bacterial enzymes: proteorhodopsin; transhydrogenase; and AcrB. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : To fully understand the mechanism of a chemical reaction, it is important to characterize the rapid structural dynamics of transient chemical species as the reaction propagates. Since chemical processes are heavily influenced by the solvent in which they occur, the interaction with the surrounding solution also needs to be elucidated. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Bacterioplankton are keystone organisms in marine ecosystems. They are important for element cycles, by transforming dissolved organic carbon and other nutrients. Bacterioplankton community composition and productivity rates change in surface waters over spatial and temporal scales. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Oceans are powered by active, metabolically diverse microorganisms, which are important in regulating biogeochemical cycles on Earth. Most of the ocean surface is often limited by nutrients, influencing bacterial growth and activities. LÄS MER
