Oligothiophene dendrimers as new building blocks for optical applications
(Universität Ulm, 2008)
Pollination biology of cantharophilous and melittophilous Annonaceae and Cyclanthaceae in French Guiana
Due to human impact tropical forests become fragmented and their preservation and sustainable management receive more attention. Functioning plant-animal interactions are crucial for long-term preservation of biodiversity ...
Neutral nickel and palladium complexes as catalysts in copolymerizations of polar and non-polar monomers
The thesis deals with Pd(II) catalysts, bearing anionic phosphine/ sulfonate ligands (PSO), with the intention of making non-alternating E/ CO-copolymers accessible. Starting from the Pd precursor [(dcp)PdCl]2, SCCs (single ...
Enzymkatalysierte Kondensationsreaktionen in wässrigen Miniemulsionen und radikalische Polymerisationen in ionischen Flüssigkeiten
In the present work the first results of the enzymatic esterification of aliphatic carbonic acids with primary and secondary alcohols in mini-emulsion are shown. The influence of the solubility of the alcohols and branched ...
Anpassung von Acinetobacter baylyi Stamm ADP1 an aromatische Substratbedingungen
The enzyme protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase (3,4-PCD) catalyzes the ring cleavage of protocatechuate (PCA) in Acinetobacter baylyi. This is a key step in the breakdown of a large number of aromatic carbon sources. Catechol ...
Modelling and treating Huntington’s disease: Generation of high-capacity adenovirus vectors to express normal and mutant huntingtin and to block huntingtin expression by short hairpin interference RNA
Huntington’s disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disease caused by the expansion of a CAG trinucleotide repeat in exon 1 of the huntingtin (Htt) gene. Emergence and progression of HD depend on continuous ...
Untersuchungen zur Integration des D1-Proteins in die Thylakoidmembran von Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803
Investigating the D1 protein integration process into the thylakoid membrane within the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 was the scope of this thesis. Based on previous results it can be concluded that the ...
Novel route to mono- and diglycerides synthesis in miniemulsion catalyzed by lipases
In summary, it could be shown that the lipolysis and glycerolysis in miniemulsion catalyzed by lipases lead to a significant increase of selectivity and presents an important route to obtain mono- and diglycerides. The ...
Charakterisierung von Virulenzregulatoren und Virulenzfaktoren aus Streptococcus agalactiae
Streptococcus agalactiae is the leading cause for sepsis, meningitis and pneumonia in newborns and emerges to play a major role in infections of immunocompromised adults. In the present work the importance of the putative ...
Untersuchung der potentiellen Wnt-4-Zielgene WSTF und PTMR während der Embryonalentwicklung von Xenopus laevis
In this study the potential Wnt-4 target genes WSTF (Williams syndrome transcription factor) and PTMR (Prothymosin alpha related) were analyzed during Xenopus laevis embryogenesis. Since PTMR is an as yet undescribed ...
