Zooplankton, mysis (Mysis sp.) and herring (Clupea harengus) were collected at two pelagic locations in the northern part of the Baltic Sea, one in Bothnian Bay (BB) and the other in the Bothnian Sea (BS), in order to investigate concentrations, composition profiles, biomagnification features and spatial differences of organochlorine contaminants. Compounds(More)
Traditional analysis of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) data, typically performed by reviewing chromatograms and the corresponding mass spectra, is both time-consuming and difficult. Detailed data analysis is therefore often omitted in proteomics applications. When analysing multiple proteomics samples, it is usually only the final list of(More)
Approximately 80,000 kg polysulfide sealant containing 10,000-18,000 kg polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) was deposited at a Swedish municipal landfill station during 1965-1973. Investigations during 1994 showed that soil layers underneath the landfill had concentration of PCB not alarmingly high. The concentration of PCB congeners in ground water samples was(More)
Differential quantification of proteins and peptides by LC-MS is a promising method to acquire knowledge about biological processes, and for finding drug targets and biomarkers. However, differential protein analysis using LC-MS has been held back by the lack of suitable software tools. Large amounts of experimental data are easily generated in protein and(More)
We demonstrate how visualization of liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry data as a two-dimensional signal intensity map can be used to assess the overall quality of the data, for the identification of polymer contaminants and artifacts, as well as for the confirmation of post-translational modifications.
Radiation therapy with protons as of today utilizes information from x-ray CT in order to estimate the proton stopping power of the traversed tissue in a patient. The conversion from x-ray attenuation to proton stopping power in tissue introduces range uncertainties of the order of 2-3% of the range, uncertainties that are contributing to an increase of the(More)
Linear relatinships between log bioconcentration factor (BCF) and log K(ow) for a variety of compounds have been reported many times in the literature. Analysis of the thermodynamics of the two partition processes has, however, shown that they are not analogous and that linear relationships can be expected to have different slopes for structurally unrelated(More)
