We have identified a novel gene that encodes an evolutionary conserved protein that we name membralin since it contains multiple transmembrane regions. The human gene C19orf6 localizes to chromosome 19p13.3. Splice variant membralin-1 is encoded by 11 exons, translating into 620 amino acids. In addition, we found evidence for two additional splice variants(More)
Acknowledgements I have had the pleasure of getting to know many inspiring, intelligent and interesting people during my years as a graduate student. I would like to sincerely thank them for sharing their knowledge and for making all the work worthwhile, after all. Thank you, Karin Enander, for being my advisor. I appreciate your clarity and honesty and(More)
This paper deals with the use of reaction gradients on bipolar electrodes for the patterning of electrode surfaces.More specifically, the potential and current density distributions in two setups containing bipolar electrodes were investigated to optimize and design specific gradient geometries. Comparisons with simulations based on simple conductivity(More)
The central theme of this thesis is the use of imaging Surface Plasmon Resonance (iSPR) as a tool in the characterization of surfaces with laterally varying properties. Within the scope of this work, an instrument for iSPR analysis was designed and built. SPR is a very sensitive technique for monitoring changes in optical properties in the immediate(More)
1417 Elimination of cholesterol as cholestenoic acid in human lung by sterol 27-hydroxylase: evidence that most of this steroid in the circulation is of pulmonary origin Abstract Human alveolar macrophages have exceptionally high capacity to convert cholesterol into 27-hydroxycholes-terol and cholestenoic acid by the sterol 27-hydroxylase mechanism. It is(More)
