  1. 1. A Search for Neonicotinoid Binding Sites in the Optic Lobes of Honeybees and Blowflies

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Författare :Ashley Hulcoop; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Neonicotinoid insecticides are agonists to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) in the brains of insects. At sub-lethal doses these chemicals cause behavioral abnormalities in several bee species, reducing overall fitness. nAChRs expressed in the optic lobes of insects bind neonicotinoids, thus may be involved in these behavioral changes.

  2. 2. The impact of CRISPR/Cas9 generated mutations in pioneer transcription factors FOXA1 and GATA3 on oestrogen receptor function

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Författare :Miroslav Bobrik; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women and two thirds of all breast cancers are classified as oestrogen receptor positive. ER is a transcription factor that regulates gene expression and promote cell proliferation that is critical in mammary gland development, and its aberrant activity is commonly present in breast cancer.

  3. 3. The crucial combination of DNA polymerase, qPCR assay and background matrix

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Författare :Felicia Johansson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Quantitative PCR (qPCR) is a commonly used method today in the fields of molecular diagnostics, forensic and food analysis. The real-time measurements of amplification and quantification of specific DNA molecules is one of many reasons why qPCR is the method of choice. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mapping of Bacteria with Flow Cytometry – before, during and after treatment of drinking water

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Författare :Mikael Danielsson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : In order to produce drinking water of high quality, surface water works apply extensive treatment processes. In this study, flow cytometry and heterotrophic plate counting was utilized to study water quality before, during and after treatment in Görvälnverket in Stockholm, Sweden. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Förvaltningsplan för Ringsjöns rovfiskbestånd - Problemidentifiering och förslag till åtgärdsplan

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i biologi

    Författare :Patrik Larsson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Eutrofiering är ett världsomspännande problem för sötvatten. Höga tillflöden av fosfor leder till försämrade förutsättningar för många typer av rovfiskar såsom abborre (Perca fluviatilis) och gädda (Esox lucius). LÄS MER
