Core Decomposition Analysis of Weighted Biological Networks
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2016:162, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Summary of thesis: English version: In biology, advanced, high-throughput experimental methods are becoming faster, cheaper and more accessible. Effective network analysis tools applicable to a broad range of networks ...
Sodium reduction in muscle foods: Analytical methods for measuring sodium and changes in the food matrix during sodium reduction in muscle foods.
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:159, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Salt (NaCl) is the world’s most established food additive, because of its excellent preservative effects, its positive effect on technological and sensory properties, and low cost. This combination of factors has resulted ...
Chemically modified alginates and chitosans Lateral and terminal functionalization by reductive amination
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:274, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
ENGLISH: Polysaccharides with added functions and/or modified properties are of increasing interest in preparing new materials suitable for both industrial applications and more advanced applications within biomedical ...
Amphiphilic polysaccharides: Stabilization of dispersed two-phase systems and gelling properties of chitosans and propylene glycol alginates
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:325, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
For many of the polysaccharides with reported surface active and emulsifying properties, this has been attributed to an associated protein fraction. However, certain polysaccharides, such as chitosans and propylene glycol ...
Alginate beads in the bioartificial pancreas – Investigation of properties for transplantation and stem cell differentiation
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:45, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Cell therapy of diabetes is today limited by two major obstacles preventing widespread application; graft rejection by the recipient’s immune system, and scarcity of cells suitable for transplantation. Microencapsulation ...
New insights into the biosynthesis of alginate in Pseudomonas fluorescens: from precursor synthesis to multiprotein factories
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:181, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Alginate is a biopolymer that has numerous industrial and medical applications due to its favorable material properties, which is greatly affected by the polymer chain length and monomer composition. Currently, all ...
Development of Human Cell Culture MS-Based Metabolomics Workflow – Including a Case Study of Peptide Drug Stress-Responses
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:88, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
"Metabolomics" can be defined as the comprehensive analysis of metabolites in cells, tissue and organism, at specific times and conditions. This technology is frequently used for disease biomarker discovery, pharmacokinetic ...
Salting of Muscle Foods: Effects of processing conditions and sodium reduction
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2014:335, Doctoral thesis, 2014)
The present thesis aims at investigating (i) salt distribution in the lean fish- and meat minces, (ii) the effect of different ions on the extractability of salt soluble proteins, and (iii) the possibility to decrease salt ...
