Life in the deep-sea ecosystems is generally dependent on the constant rain and fall of particles and matter from the photic zone and the continental shelf. Submarine canyons may trap and concentrate large organic falls (e.g. terrestrial debris and sunken wood) from wide areas. Its accumulation on canyon floor creates “islands” that contribute to deep-sea species diversity and dispersal. Therefore ...

Global change, especially global warming, is affecting the Polar Areas with great magnitude. Some of the most rapid changes associated with warming are occurring in polar terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems, associated with changes in the carbon cycle (C-cycle), sea ice dynamics, nutrient loadings and perturbation of sinks of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and greenhouse gases. In ...

A modern bioeconomy needs to valorise the potential of carbon neutral resources, in particular the environmentally and socially acceptable, and economically competitive utilization of plant biomass. Most of the plant biomass consists of durable lignocellulosics what provide structural strength for the plant and are the first line of defence against invading pathogens. It is thus desirable to impro ...

Chemical biology of autophagy (chembio_atg)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2017,

Autophagy is a cellular pathway that regulates the degradation and recycling of proteins and organelles. This mechanism is initiated with the formation of a phagophore, a cup-shaped double membrane that engulfs the cytoplasmic material to be degraded. The phagophore is then elongated and sealed to generate an autophagosome that will be fused with a lysosome, thereby delivering the cargo for degrad ...
