    Renal blood oxygenation level-dependent magnetic resonance imaging to measure renal tissue oxygenation: a statement paper and systematic review2018In: Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation, ISSN 0931-0509, E-ISSN 1460-2385, Vol. 33, p. II22-II28Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tissue hypoxia plays a key role in the development and progression of many kidney diseases. Blood oxygenation level-dependent magnetic resonance imaging (BOLD-MRI) is the most promising imaging technique to monitor renal tissue oxygenation in humans. BOLD-MRI measures renal tissue deoxyhaemoglobin levels voxel by voxel. Increases in its outcome measure R2* (transverse relaxation rate expressed as per second) correspond to higher deoxyhaemoglobin concentrations and suggest lower oxygenation, whereas decreases in R2* indicate higher oxygenation. BOLD-MRI has been validated against micropuncture techniques in animals. Its reproducibility has been demonstrated in humans, provided that physiological and technical conditions are standardized. BOLD-MRI has shown that patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) or kidneys with severe renal artery stenosis have lower tissue oxygenation than controls. Additionally, CKD patients with the lowest cortical oxygenation have the worst renal outcome. Finally, BOLD-MRI has been used to assess the influence of drugs on renal tissue oxygenation, and may offer the possibility to identify drugs with nephroprotective or nephrotoxic effects at an early stage. Unfortunately, different methods are used to prepare patients, acquire MRI data and analyse the BOLD images. International efforts such as the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) action 'Magnetic Resonance Imaging Biomarkers for Chronic Kidney Disease' (PARENCHIMA) are aiming to harmonize this process, to facilitate the introduction of this technique in clinical practice in the near future. This article represents an extensive overview of the studies performed in this field, summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of the technique, provides recommendations about patient preparation, image acquisition and analysis, and suggests clinical applications and future developments.

    Measurement of the Higgs boson mass in the H -> ZZ* -> 4l and H -> gamma gamma channels with root s=13 TeV pp collisions using the ATLAS detector2018In: Physics Letters B, ISSN 0370-2693, E-ISSN 1873-2445, Vol. 784, p. 345-366Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The mass of the Higgs boson is measured in the H -> ZZ* -> 4l and in the H -> gamma gamma decay channels with 36.1 fb(-1) of proton-proton collision data from the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector in 2015 and 2016. The measured value in the H -> ZZ* -> 4l channel is m(H)(ZZ*) = 124.79 +/- 0.37 GeV, while the measured value in the H -> gamma gamma channel is m(H)(gamma gamma) = 124.93 +/- 0.40 GeV. Combining these results with the ATLAS measurement based on 7 and 8 TeV proton-proton collision data yields a Higgs boson mass of m(H) = 124.97 +/- 0.24 GeV.

    Combined limit on the production of a light gauge boson decaying into mu(+) mu(-) and pi(+) pi(-)2018In: Physics Letters B, ISSN 0370-2693, E-ISSN 1873-2445, Vol. 784, p. 336-341Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We searched for the mu(+) mu(-) decay of a light vector gauge boson, also known as dark photon, in the e(+) e(-) -> mu(+) mu(-) gamma(ISR) process by means of the Initial State Radiation (ISR) method. We used 1.93fb(-1) of data collected by the KLOE experiment at the DA Phi NE phi-factory. No structures have been observed over the irreducible mu(+) mu(-) background. A 90% CL limit on the ratio epsilon(2)= alpha'/alpha between the dark coupling constant and the fine structure constant of 3 x 10(-6)-2 x 10(-7) has been set in the dark photon mass region between 519 MeV and 973 MeV. This new limit has been combined with the published result obtained investigating the hypothesis of the dark photon decaying into hadrons in e(+) e(-) -> pi(+) pi(-) gamma(ISR) events. The combined 90% CL limit increases the sensitivity especially in the rho-omega interference region and excludes epsilon(2) greater than (13 - 2) x 10(-7). For dark photon masses greater than 600 MeV the combined limit is lower than 8 x 10(-7) resulting more stringent than present constraints from other experiments.

    Evidence for Z(c)(+/-)(3900) in semi-inclusive decays of b-flavored hadrons2018In: Physical Review D: covering particles, fields, gravitation, and cosmology, ISSN 2470-0010, E-ISSN 2470-0029, Vol. 98, no 5, article id 052010Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present evidence for the exotic charged charmoniumlike state Z(c)(+/-)(3900) decaying to J/psi pi(+/-) in semi-inclusive weak decays of b-flavored hadrons. The signal is correlated with a parent J/psi pi(+)pi(-) system in the invariant-mass range 4.2-4.7 GeV that would include the exotic structure Y(4260). The study is based on 10.4 fb(-1) of p (p) over bar collision data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider.

    Search for C violation in the decay eta -> pi(0)e(+)e(-) with WASA-at-COSY2018In: Physics Letters B, ISSN 0370-2693, E-ISSN 1873-2445, Vol. 784, p. 378-384Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We report on the search for the rare decay eta -> pi(0)e(+)e(-) which is of interest to study C violation in the electromagnetic interaction which would indicate contributions from physics beyond the Standard Model, since the allowed decay via a two-photon intermediate state is strongly suppressed. The experiment has been performed using the WASA-at-COSY installation, located at the COSY accelerator of the Forschungszentrum Julich, Germany. In total 3 x 10(7) events of the reaction pd -> He-3 eta have been recorded at an excess energy of Q = 59.8MeV. Based on this data set the C parity violating decay eta -> pi(0)gamma* -> pi(0)e(+)e(-) via a single-photon intermediate state has been searched for, resulting in new upper limits of Gamma(eta -> pi(0)e(+) e(-))/Gamma(eta -> pi(+) pi(-) pi(0)) < 3.28 x 10(-5) and Gamma(eta -> pi(0)e(+) e(-))/Gamma(eta -> all)< 7.5 x 10(-6) (CL=90%), respectively.

    ”Back to Glory”: Renoveringen av Pera Palace2017In: Dragomanen: Förflutet och bevarat / [ed] Olof Heilo, Svenska Forskningsinstitutet Istanbul , 2017, 19, p. 71-87Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Pera Palace byggdes i slutet av 1800-talet som ett exklusivt internationellt hotell för Orientexpressens Istanbulresenärer. Med moderna faciliteter inbäddade i ett skal av både jugend och orientalism förkroppsligade hotellet föreställningen om ”öst” som möter ”väst”. Hotellet och stadsdelen Pera kom under årens lopp att förändras både vad gällde invånare, gäster och status, och Pera Palace stod kvar som ett minne över en svunnen tid, en guldålder som hade passerat. Hotellet omgavs tidigt av en mytbildning kring byggnaden och dess kända gäster, men samtidigt ansågs hotellets forna glans ha bleknat. 2008 påbörjades en påkostad renovering och omgestaltning med syfte att återuppliva dess status.

    Denna artikel syftar till att undersöka vilka berättelser och minnen som genom tiderna återgetts i reseskildringar och medierapportering om Pera Palace samt hur dessa kan ha påverkat renoveringens gestaltning. Som komplement har fotografier av interiören från olika tidsperioder analyserats med syfte att få en bild av hotellets ursprungliga utseende och förändringar. Historikern Geoffrey Cubitt menar att materiell kultur kan definieras som kulturellt minne, som fysiska lämningar vilka uppfattas ha symbolisk betydelse i ett samhälle eller för en grupp. Kulturhistoriska objekt eller platser är ofta starka minnesbärare och kan hjälpa individer till orientering i det förgångna såväl som i samtid och framtid. Bevarande – t.ex. restaurering och i viss mån renovering – kan ses som ett sätt att hålla minnen vid liv. Restaureringsideologi är en form av minneshantering, men också en materiell artikulering av minnen. De val som görs vid en renovering eller restaurering kan både lyfta fram, tona ner eller exkludera minnen, vilket i sin tur påverkar vilka minnen som överlever.

    Processes of Value Co-Creation at a Tourist Accommodation2018In: Quality Innovation Prosperity, ISSN 1335-1745, E-ISSN 1338-984X, Vol. 22, no 3, p. 36-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper aims to study how a pair of hosts for one bed and breakfast establishment and their guests create value for the visit by communicating and interacting with each other on the island of Gotland.

    Methodology/Approach: A case study was conducted on one single Bed and Breakfast (BnB) accommodation. An interview and a Questionnaire study were performed.

    Findings: The study shows that there are several processes involved in the co- creation of values between visitors and hosts. Co-creation processes begin already when visitors are planning their visits to the island. Their expectations are created while choosing their accommodation type, often done online on different websites. Pre-information about the chosen BnB accommodation contributes to visitors’ expectations and image of the object, which can be seen as a part of their identities. In the physical meeting with the accommodation and the hosts and other guests, the co-creation process is strengthened. There are processes of participation, communication, creation of meaning for the stay, processes of trust and responsibilities which all together create a common culture which in turn contributes to co-creation of values for both parties. These processes also take place between guests. The processes are furthermore dependent on meaning-making and sensemaking processes. This all together generate knowledge about the destination and the values that enhance the positive experience of the visits. It also creates knowledge for the hosts about how they can develop their service to achieve increased customer satisfaction. Finally, these skills can be valuable for the continued planning and development of the tourism industry.

    Talat språk i hemmet, självskattad förmåga och faktiska kunskaper i matematik: En undersökning baserad på data från TIMSS 20152018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I det här arbetet undersöks tre frågeställningar. För det första undersöks huruvida teorier om sambandet mellan elevers självförmåga och prestation i matematik stämmer i TIMSS 2015 för elever i årskurs 4 i Sverige. Högt skattad självförmåga förväntas leda till ett bättre faktiskt resultat. Den här undersökningen visar att elevers självförmåga har ett samband med kunskaper i matematik. Självförmåga kan förklara 15,5 procent av skillnaderna i elevernas testresultat. Det har tidigare konstaterats att elever födda utanför Sverige har sämre resultat på kunskapstestet i matematik i TIMSS 2015. Den andra frågeställningen undersöker om det finns ett samband mellan resultat och i vilken utsträckning eleverna talar svenska i hemmet. Undersökningen visar att det fanns ett samband. Sammantaget förklarar huruvida eleven är född i Sverige eller inte tillsammans med i vilken utsträckning eleven talar svenska i hemmet 6,3 procent av det faktiska resultatet. Den tredje frågan som besvaras i det här arbetet är om det finns ett samband mellan i vilken utsträckning elever talar svenska i hemmet och hur elever skattar sina kunskaper i matematik. Undersökningen visar att det inte finns något samband. Resultaten ger skäl att påstå att självförmåga spelar en större roll för elevers faktiska kunskaper än vad födelseland och talat språk i hemmet gör, samt att självförmåga inte är direkt kopplad till i vilken utsträckning eleven talar svenska i hemmet.

    Hard and crack resistant carbon supersaturated refractory nanostructured multicomponent coatings2018In: Scientific Reports, ISSN 2045-2322, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 8, article id 14508Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The combination of ceramic hardness with high crack resistance is a major challenge in the design of protective thin films. High entropy alloys have shown in earlier studies promising mechanical properties with a potential use as thin film materials. In this study, we show that small amounts of carbon in magnetron-sputtered multicomponent CrNbTaTiW films can lead to a significant increase in hardness. The film properties were strongly dependent on the metal composition and the most promising results were observed for TaW-rich films. They crystallised in a bcc structure with a strong (110) texture and coherent grain boundaries. It was possible to deposit films with 8 at.% C in a supersaturated solid-solution into the bcc structure without carbide formation. A major effect of carbon was a significant grain refinement, reducing the column diameter from approximately 35 to 10 nm. This resulted in an increase in hardness from 14.7 to 19.1 GPa while the reduced E-modulus stayed constant at 322 GPa. The carbon-containing films exhibited extremely little plastic deformation around the indent and no cracks were observed. These results show that supersaturation of carbon into high entropy films can be a promising concept to combine superior hardness with high crack resistance.

    Towards the use of Alcohol dehydrogenases as biocatalysts for stereoselective isotope labeling of aromatic alcohols.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The enzyme ADH-A and one of its mutants ADH-A C1B1 from ​ Rhodococcus ruber,​ have in previous studies been proved to act as proper biocatalysts, fully capable of performing redox reactions. Two redox reactions were studied during this project, were those enzymes act as catalysts. For that matter, ADH-A wild type and ADH-A C1B1 genes were expressed in ​ E. coli​ and the encoded enzymes were purified and used for kinetic studies with a final goal on studying the kinetic isotope effect that is generated between them and the molecules that contain deuterium. HPLC analysis on these products showed that the reactions were not thermodynamically favored and conclusions on the best reaction conditions for both enzymes as well as for further improvements are discussed.

    Working Towards the Heterologous Expression of Styrene Monooxygenases for Styrene Epoxidation and Reaction Cascades2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Previously, styrene oxide has been used as starting material in the reaction cascade for obtaining 2-hydroxyacetophenone. If the path could be extended to instead start with styrene as substrate, it would be an advantage financially. The aim of this degree project was to produce two monooxygenase components needed for the epoxidation of styrene. The coding sequence for styrene monooxygenase component StyA had in an earlier project been inserted in a plasmid which in this project was used for inserting the gene coding for the styrene monooxygenase component StyB. The transformation of the ligated plasmid became problematic and did not result in the expected outcome. When doing an transformation directly on the ligation mixture, the result of the experiment was successful. Consequently, the problem was likely due to the poor condition of the cells used.

    Off the record: Margaret van Kleffens and the gendered history of Dutch World War II diplomacy2018In: International feminist journal of politics, ISSN 1461-6742, E-ISSN 1468-4470Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article makes the case for recovering women’s roles from the forgotten corners of diplomatic history, and for considering the consequences of the gap between feminist and non-feminist research. It shows how ignorance of the gendered nature of diplomatic norms and practices impacts our understanding of diplomatic history, and how specific biographies are hampered by gender blindness in particular. Using the history of Margaret van Kleffens and Dutch World War II diplomacy as an example, the article demonstrates how historians’ continued neglect of the role of women and gender norms has influenced representations of twentieth-century diplomacy. To dismiss the history of gender and of women as by definition irrelevant to the actions of states and of male statespersons is not simply part of a self-appointed focus on the political at the expense of the personal; rather, it omits much of the political history too, reproducing stereotypes and resulting in a skewed understanding of diplomatic history and foreign policy decisions. The article argues that both historians and feminist scholars need to historicize gender in order to recognize women’s roles in diplomacy, and so gain a better understanding of the history of international politics as a whole.

    Genomes from uncultivated prokaryotes: a comparison of metagenome-assembled and single-amplified genomes2018In: Microbiome, ISSN 0026-2633, E-ISSN 2049-2618, Vol. 6, article id 173Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Prokaryotes dominate the biosphere and regulate biogeochemical processes essential to all life. Yet, our knowledge about their biology is for the most part limited to the minority that has been successfully cultured. Molecular techniques now allow for obtaining genome sequences of uncultivated prokaryotic taxa, facilitating in-depth analyses that may ultimately improve our understanding of these key organisms.

    Results: We compared results from two culture-independent strategies for recovering bacterial genomes: single-amplified genomes and metagenome-assembled genomes. Single-amplified genomes were obtained from samples collected at an offshore station in the Baltic Sea Proper and compared to previously obtained metagenome-assembled genomes from a time series at the same station. Among 16 single-amplified genomes analyzed, seven were found to match metagenome-assembled genomes, affiliated with a diverse set of taxa. Notably, genome pairs between the two approaches were nearly identical (average 99.51% sequence identity; range 98.77-99.84%) across overlapping regions (30-80% of each genome). Within matching pairs, the single-amplified genomes were consistently smaller and less complete, whereas the genetic functional profiles were maintained. For the metagenome-assembled genomes, only on average 3.6% of the bases were estimated to be missing from the genomes due to wrongly binned contigs.

    Conclusions: The strong agreement between the single-amplified and metagenome-assembled genomes emphasizes that both methods generate accurate genome information from uncultivated bacteria. Importantly, this implies that the research questions and the available resources are allowed to determine the selection of genomics approach for microbiome studies.

    Intersubjective strategies in deontic modality: evidential functions of Spanish deber 'must'2016In: Kalbotyra, ISSN 1392-1517, E-ISSN 2029-8315, no 69, p. 246-266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The principal aim of this study is to examine the Spanish modal verb deber ‘must’ in its deontic readings, relating it to the notions of evidentiality and intersubjectivity. Deber has often been compared to the modal verb tener que ‘have to’ and described in rather vague terms, for example as an expression of weak, internal obligation, but this paper proposes that it is better understood as an intersubjective verb. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses have been carried out, with a special focus on the in-depth qualitative study. It will be shown that deontic deber can convey evidential meanings when used in the conditional form. First, it can refer to a norm shared between the speaker and the hearer, and, second, it can convey an inferential process, a conclusion presented by the speaker, which is based on shared information, available to a larger group (or all) of the interlocutors. Evidentiality is regarded here as an intersubjective strategy, used when the speaker wants to reach consensus, arguing for the most reasonable, morally defensible way to act. Thus, this study also offers a new perspective of evidentiality, looking at this notion in interaction with deontic modality instead of epistemic modality, which is usually the case.

    Heterotic and bosonic string amplitudes via field theory2018In: Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP), ISSN 1126-6708, E-ISSN 1029-8479, no 10, article id 012Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous work has shown that massless tree amplitudes of the type I and IIA/B superstrings can be dramatically simplified by expressing them as double copies between field-theory amplitudes and scalar disk/sphere integrals, the latter containing all the alpha'-corrections. In this work, we pinpoint similar double-copy constructions for the heterotic and bosonic string theories using an alpha'-dependent field theory and the same disk/sphere integrals. Surprisingly, this field theory, built out of dimension-six operators such as (D mu F mu v)(2), has previously appeared in the double-copy construction of conformal supergravity. We elaborate on the alpha' -> infinity limit in this picture and derive new amplitude relations for various gauge-gravity theories from those of the heterotic string.

    Acaricidal properties of ylang-ylang oil and star anise oil against nymphs of Ixodes ricinus (Acari: Ixodidae)2018In: Experimental & applied acarology, ISSN 0168-8162, E-ISSN 1572-9702, Vol. 76, no 2, p. 209-220Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ylang-ylang oil (YYO) from Cananga odorata (Lam.) Hook.f. & Thomson and star anise oil (SAO) from Illicium verum Hook.f. were tested at four concentrations 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4 mu l/cm(2). Mortality rates were obtained by counting dead nymphs at 30-min intervals during the first 5h after the start of exposure and then at 24, 48 and 72h. Mortality increased with increasing oil concentration and time of exposure. The two highest concentrations of YYO (0.2, 0.4 mu l/cm(2)) gave maximum lethal concentrations (LC) of 50 and 95% mortality after 4.5h exposure. Mortality of 95% was obtained after 24h with the next highest dose (0.1 mu l/cm(2)), whereas LC95 required 3days with the lowest YYO (0.05 mu l/cm(2)). The lethal effect time (LT) was correlated with the duration of exposure, with a significant effect at 0.4l YYO/cm(2) after 3h' (LT50=3.2h, LT95=4.3h). In contrast, only the highest concentration of SAO, 0.4 mu l SAO/cm(2), showed increasing mortality with time of exposure. This reached LT50 after 10h and LT95 after 24h. However, with the lower concentration (0.2 mu l/cm(2)) 50% mortality was reached after 24h and 100% at 72h. At to the lowest concentration of SAO (0.1 mu l/cm(2)), 67% mortality after 48h. The study indicates that YYO and SAO exhibit strong acaricidal properties against nymphs of I. ricinus and suggest that both YYO and SAO should be evaluated as potentially useful in the control of ticks.

    Evaluation of two commercial CT metal artifact reduction algorithms for use in proton radiotherapy treatment planning in the head and neck area2018In: Medical physics (Lancaster), ISSN 0094-2405, Vol. 45, no 10, p. 4329-4344Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: To evaluate two commercial CT metal artifact reduction (MAR) algorithms for use in proton treatment planning in the head and neck (H&N) area.

    Methods: An anthropomorphic head phantom with removable metallic implants (dental fillings or neck implant) was CT-scanned to evaluate the O-MAR (Philips) and the iMAR (Siemens) algorithms. Reference images were acquired without any metallic implants in place. Water equivalent thickness (WET) was calculated for different path directions and compared between image sets. Images were also evaluated for use in proton treatment planning for parotid, tonsil, tongue base, and neck node targets. The beams were arranged so as to not traverse any metal prior to the target, enabling evaluation of the impact on dose calculation accuracy from artifacts surrounding the metal volume. Plans were compared based on analysis (1 mm distance-to-agreement/1% difference in local dose) and dose volume histogram metrics for targets and organs at risk (OARs). Visual grading evaluation of 30 dental implant patient MAR images was performed by three radiation oncologists.

    Results: In the dental fillings images, WET along a low-density streak was reduced from -17.0 to -4.3 mm with O-MAR and from -16.1 mm to -2.3 mm with iMAR, while for other directions the deviations were increased or approximately unchanged when the MAR algorithms were used. For the neck implant images, WET was generally reduced with MAR but residual deviations remained (of up to -2.3 mm with O-MAR and of up to -1.5 mm with iMAR). The analysis comparing proton dose distributions for uncorrected/MAR plans and corresponding reference plans showed passing rates >98% of the voxels for all phantom plans. However, substantial dose differences were seen in areas of most severe artifacts ( passing rates of down to 89% for some cases). MAR reduced the deviations in some cases, but not for all plans. For a single patient case dosimetrically evaluated, minor dose differences were seen between the uncorrected and MAR plans ( passing rate approximately 97%). The visual grading of patient images showed that MAR significantly improved image quality (P < 0.001).

    Conclusions: O-MAR and iMAR significantly improved image quality in terms of anatomical visualization for target and OAR delineation in dental implant patient images. WET calculations along several directions, all outside the metallic regions, showed that both uncorrected and MAR images contained metal artifacts which could potentially lead to unacceptable errors in proton treatment planning. WET was reduced by MAR in some areas, while increased or unchanged deviations were seen for other path directions. The proton treatment plans created for the phantom images showed overall acceptable dose distributions differences when compared to the reference cases, both for the uncorrected and MAR images. However, substantial dose distribution differences in the areas of most severe artifacts were seen for some plans, which were reduced by MAR in some cases but not all. In conclusion, MAR could be beneficial to use for proton treatment planning; however, case-by-case evaluations of the metal artifact-degraded images are always recommended.

    Известия о чудотворных источниках в русском переводе (1646 г.): вновь найденные оригиналы к Вестям-Курантам2017In: Slovo: Journal of Slavic Languages, Literatures and Cultures , ISSN 2001-7395, Vol. 58, p. 7-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1646, the village of Hornhausen in Saxony became famous in many parts of Europe. When the snow had melted after the winter, it occurred to some of the inhabitants that the water remaining in a water hole could be a “healing source”, inspired by their knowledge about similar water holes in earlier times that had been interpreted in this way. Eventually more water holes were discovered, and at the peak of the pilgrimages, in the summer of 1646, Hornhausen allegedly had 20 “healing springs”, and thousands of people were staying at this “Lutheran Lourdes”. After the summer of 1647, the water disappeared. During the peak of the mass psychosis, more than 50 different pamphlets and broadsides were printed, containing news about the miraculous healings, eyewitness reports, drawings, etc. Some of these imprints were sent to Moscow, where they were translated at the Ambassadorial Chancery (Posol ́skij prikaz), and eventually they were published in the Vesti- Kuranty series. The present paper contains a historical and cultural background to the miraculous sources of Hornhausen as well as a description of the German pamphlets and the Russian translations. A parallel Russian-German list comprising more than 200 alleged healings is given in the appendix (the German equivalents are quoted from the very same edition of the pamphlet that was translated in Moscow).

    Blue Geese or Self-Serving Relatives: Translation Across a Major Cultural Divide2017In: Slovo: Journal of Slavic Languages, Literatures and Cultures , ISSN 2001-7395, Vol. 58, p. 75-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the post-war Soviet Union, works by the leading literary figures of the non-Russian republics enjoyed a wide and enthusiastic readership. Many of these authors chose to write in the lingua franca of the Soviet empire, but some wrote in their native languages and were translated into Russian. The nature of these translations raises interesting issues, not only those one would expect in a translation over the significant linguistic distance between a non- Indo-European and an Indo-European language, but others that are due to differences between broader cultural traditions, written or oral. One such issue is: what constitutes a ‘language’ for the purpose of literary translation in situations where a whole genre might not have an equivalent in the culture of the target language? A striking example is a novel by the distinguished Buriat writer Chimit Tsydendambaev which became quite widely known following its appearance in Moscow in 1977 with the title Okhotniki za golubymi gusiami. Satiricheskii roman v novellakh, in an authorized translation into Russian by L. Parfenov, with a second edition in 1987. The novel appeared in the original Buriat only in 1989, with the title Kholo oiryn türelnüüd [Distant and Close Relatives], and a comparison of this text with the “authorized translation” is fascinating and puzzling. It appears that the author himself must have worked with his Russian collaborator to create a version couched not only in the Russian language, but in the communicative currency of a Russian genre. Detailed comparison of the texts reveals that while the literary devices of the original depend on the structures and rhetoric of Buriat-Mongolian, those of the Russian version are wholly Russian- based, resulting effectively in the telling of a somewhat different story. As a result, the very successful “translation” can at best be described as an “adaptation” of the original. Analogous genre problems have been noted with the Russian reception of Buriat drama, and the case of Tsydendambaev’s novel is unlikely to be unique in the history of Russian translations from literatures of the minority languages of the empire. The way we examine translations beween remote languages needs more sophisticated treatment.

    Single molecule detection via solid state carbon nanopore2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Single molecule detection is of vital importance for fundamental biotechnology research and practical applications. Among the numerous single molecule detection techniques, solid-state nanopores have been developed as single molecule sensors for the investigation of unlabeled biopolymers such as DNA, RNA and protein owing to their robustness, pore size controllability and tunability of physical/chemical properties. The most commonly used method today to form ultra-small nanopores relies on using focused high energy electron beams on a transmission electron microscope (TEM). However, the sophisticated operation of TEM, high cost and low throughput limit its extensive applications. In this work, we start with electron beam lithography combined with reactive ion etching to massively prefabricate nanopores with relatively large size in free-standing silicon nitride membranes. Then, electron beam irradiation is used to deposit carbon with a conventional scanning electron microscope so as to reduce the size of prefabricated pores. This process leads to the controllable formation of solid-state carbon nanopores sub-30 nm in diameter. We subsequently use the carbon nanopores to study translocation of λ-DNA as a demonstration of the capability of such carbon nanopores. By tuning bias voltage, the translocation events show regular changes in amplitude, dwell time and appearance frequency. With this advanced nanopore platform, detection of single DNA molecules is achieved with a high signal-to-noise ratio of ~6.

    Exploring Approximations for Floating-Point Arithmetic using UppSAT2018In: Automated Reasoning - 2018 / [ed] Didier Galmiche, Stephan Schulz, Roberto Sebastiani, Cham, 2018, Vol. 9, p. 246-262Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider the problem of solving floating-point constraints obtained from software verification. We present UppSAT—an new implementation of a systematic approximation refinement framework as an abstract SMT solver. Provided with an approximation and a decision procedure (implemented in an off-the-shelf SMT solver), UppSAT yields an approximating SMT solver. Additionally, UppSAT includes a library of predefined approximation components which can be combined and extended to define new encodings, orderings and solving strategies. We propose that UppSAT can be used as a sandbox for easy and flexible exploration of new approximations. To substantiate this, we explore encodings of floating-point arithmetic into reduced precision floating-point arithmetic, real-arithmetic, and fixed-point arithmetic (encoded into the theory of bit-vectors in practice). In an experimental evaluation we compare the advantages and disadvantages of approximating solvers obtained by combining various encodings and decision procedures.

    Bit-Vector Interpolation and Quantifier Elimination by Lazy Reduction2018In: Formal Methods inComputer-Aided Design / [ed] Nikolaj Bjørner, Arie Gurfinkel, 2018, Vol. 18, p. 50-59Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The inference of program invariants over machine arithmetic, commonly called bit-vector arithmetic, is an important problem in verification. Techniques that have been successful for unbounded arithmetic, in particular Craig interpolation, have turned out to be difficult to generalise to machine arithmetic: existing bit-vector interpolation approaches are based either on eager translation from bit-vectors to unbounded arithmetic, resulting in complicated constraints that are hard to solve and interpolate, or on bit-blasting to propositional logic, in the process losing all arithmetic structure. We present a new approach to bitvector interpolation, as well as bit-vector quantifier elimination (QE), that works by lazy translation of bit-vector constraints to unbounded arithmetic. Laziness enables us to fully utilise the information available during proof search (implied by decisions and propagation) in the encoding, and this way produce constraints that can be handled relatively easily by existing interpolation and QE procedures for Presburger arithmetic. The lazy encoding is complemented with a set of native proof rules for bit-vector equations and non-linear (polynomial) constraints, this way minimising the number of cases a solver has to consider

    A SIMULATED COMPARISON OF LINEAR AND RANS BASED CFD MODELING IN REGARD TO CRITICAL SLOPE2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to compare the performance of a linear model to a nonlinear model focusing on flow separation based on a critical slope value. Specifically, the WindPRO WAsP model will be compared with the WindSIM CFD model over a simulated terrain to determine the point the two models differ in relation to the inclination of the terrain. The results of this study will verify if the proposed critical slope value of roughly 17 degrees is truly representative of the limitation of the WAsP model in producing accurate results as compared to a CFD model.  Multiple similar studies have been performed using existing sites with actual met mast data as a comparison to the model outputs. Many of these cases have come up with varying results due primarily to the large number of uncontrolled factors influencing the data. This study will be designed in a fully simulated environment where all variables can be controlled, allowing for the manipulation of a single variable to understand its’ specific influence over the model. The primary variable being tested in this study will be the slope of the terrain with all other factors held constant.   Based on the outcome of 7 alternative runs with ridge heights of 100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200, and 300 meters and respective maximum slope values of 10.31, 12.32, 14.29, 16.23, 18.14, 20, and 28.63 degrees a defined separation point at a hub height of 94 meters could not be found. Each run demonstrated correlation between wind speeds and terrain slope variations but a considerable difference in estimated wind resources was present between the linear and non-linear CFD models where any slope in terrain is present. This, as expected, increases where terrain inclination increases, but a clearly defined difference between the two models is not evident at the previously established critical slope value of approximately 17 degrees (30%).

    Effect of halide ratio and Cs+ addition on the photochemical stability of lead halide perovskites2018In: Journal of Materials Chemistry A, ISSN 2050-7488, Vol. 6, no 44, p. 22134-22144Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Lead halide perovskite solar cells with multi-cation/mixed halide materials now give power conversion efficiencies of more than 20%. The stability of these mixed materials has been significantly improved through the addition of Cs+ compared to the original methylammonium lead iodide. However, it remains one of the most significant challenges for commercialisation. In this study, we use photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) in combination with visible laser illumination to study the photo-stability of perovskite films with different compositions. These include Br : I ratios of 50 : 50 and 17 : 83 and compositions with and without Cs+. For the samples without Cs and the 50 : 50 samples, we found that the surface was enriched in Br and depleted in I during illumination and that some of the perovskite decomposed into Pb0, organic halide salts, and iodine. After illumination, both of these reactions were partially reversible. Furthermore, the surfaces of the films were enriched in organic halide salts indicating that the cations were not degraded into volatile products. With the addition of Cs+ to the samples, photo-induced changes were significantly suppressed for a 50 : 50 bromide to iodide ratio and completely suppressed for perovskites with a 17 : 83 ratio at light intensities exceeding 1 sun equivalent.

    Colposcopy telemedicine: live versus static swede score and accuracy in detecting CIN2+, a cross-sectional pilot study2018In: BMC Women's Health, ISSN 1472-6874, E-ISSN 1472-6874, Vol. 18, article id 89Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: This cross-sectional pilot study evaluates diagnostic accuracy of live colposcopy versus static image Swede-score evaluation for detecting significant precancerous cervical lesions greater than, or equal to grade 2 severity (CIN2+). Methods: VIA or HrHPV positive women were examined using a mobile colposcope, in a rural clinic in Kolkata, India. Live versus static Swede-score colposcopy assessments were made independently. All assessments were by gynecologists, junior or expert. Static image assessors were blinded to live scoring, patient information and final histopathology result. Primary outcome was the ability to detect CIN2+ lesions verified by directed biopsies. Diagnostic accuracy was calculated for live versus static Swede-score in detecting CIN2+ lesions, as well as for interclass correlation. Results: 495 images from 94 VIA positive women were evaluated in this study. Thirteen women (13.9%) had CIN2+ on biopsy. No significant difference was found in the detection of CIN2+ lesions between live and static assessors (area under curve = 0.69 versus 0.71, p = 0.63). A Swede-score of 4+, had a sensitivity of 76.9% (95% CI 46.2-95.0%) and 84.6% (95% CI 54.6-98.1%), for live-and static-image assessment respectively. The corresponding positive predictive values were found to be 90.9% (95% CI 75.7-98.1%) and 92.6% (95% CI 75.7-99.1%). The interclass correlation was good (kappa statistic = 0.60) for the senior static assessors. Conclusions: Swede-score evaluation of static colposcopy images was found to reliably detect CIN2+ lesions in this study. Larger studies are needed to further develop the colposcopy telemedicine concept which may offer reliable guidance in management where direct specialist input is not available. Trial registration: Ethical approval of the study was obtained by the Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute (CNCI) Human Research Ethics Committee (4.311/27/2014).

    Investigating Holocene human population history in North Asia using ancient mitogenomes2018In: Scientific Reports, ISSN 2045-2322, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 8, article id 8969Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Archaeogenomic studies have largely elucidated human population history in West Eurasia during the Stone Age. However, despite being a broad geographical region of significant cultural and linguistic diversity, little is known about the population history in North Asia. We present complete mitochondrial genome sequences together with stable isotope data for 41 serially sampled ancient individuals from North Asia, dated between c. 13,790 BP and c. 1,380 BP extending from the Palaeolithic to the Iron Age. Analyses of mitochondrial DNA sequences and haplogroup data of these individuals revealed the highest genetic affinity to present-day North Asian populations of the same geographical region suggesting a possible long-term maternal genetic continuity in the region. We observed a decrease in genetic diversity over time and a reduction of maternal effective population size (Ne) approximately seven thousand years before present. Coalescent simulations were consistent with genetic continuity between present day individuals and individuals dating to 7,000 BP, 4,800 BP or 3,000 BP. Meanwhile, genetic differences observed between 7,000 BP and 3,000 BP as well as between 4,800 BP and 3,000 BP were inconsistent with genetic drift alone, suggesting gene flow into the region from distant gene pools or structure within the population. These results indicate that despite some level of continuity between ancient groups and present-day populations, the region exhibits a complex demographic history during the Holocene.

    Occurrence of erythema migrans in children with Lyme neuroborreliosis and the association with clinical characteristics and outcome - a prospective cohort study2018In: BMC Pediatrics, ISSN 1471-2431, E-ISSN 1471-2431, Vol. 18, article id 189Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Erythema migrans (EM) is the most common manifestation of Lyme borreliosis (LB), caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. The infection can disseminate into the nervous system and cause Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB), the second most frequent LB manifestation in children. The aim of this prospective cohort study is to describe the occurrence of EM among children with LNB and to evaluate possible differences in clinical characteristics or outcome between LNB patients with and without EM. Method: Children being evaluated for LNB in southeast Sweden during the period 2010-2014 underwent a clinical examination, laboratory testing and filled out a questionnaire regarding duration and nature of symptoms, EM and the child's health. Children were classified according to European guidelines for LNB. Clinical recovery was evaluated at a 2-month follow-up. Results: The occurrence of EM among children with LNB was 37 out of 103 (36%). Gender, age, observed tick bite, clinical features, duration of neurological symptoms or clinical outcome did not differ significantly between LNB patients with or without EM. However, facial nerve palsy was significantly more common among children with EM in the head and neck area. Conclusion: EM occurred in 36% of children with LNB and the location on the head and neck was more common among children with facial nerve palsy. EM was not associated with other specific clinical characteristics or outcome. Thus, the occurrence of EM in children with LNB cannot be useful as a prognostic factor for clinical outcome. This aspect has not previously been highlighted but seems to be relevant for the paediatrician in a clinical setting.

    Absorption Coefficient of a Semiconductor Thin Film from Photoluminescence2018In: Physical Review Applied, E-ISSN 2331-7019, Vol. 9, no 6, article id 064008Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The photoluminescence (PL) of semiconductors can be used to determine their absorption coefficient (a) using Planck's generalized law. The standard method, suitable only for self-supported thick samples, like wafers, is extended to multilayer thin films by means of the transfer-matrix method to include the effect of the substrate and optional front layers. a values measured on various thin-film solar-cell absorbers by both PL and photothermal deflection spectroscopy (PDS) show good agreement. PL measurements are extremely sensitive to the semiconductor absorption and allow us to advantageously circumvent parasitic absorption from the substrate; thus, a can be accurately determined down to very low values, allowing us to investigate deep band tails with a higher dynamic range than in any other method, including spectrophotometry and PDS.

    Embryonic expression patterns and phylogenetic analysis of panarthropod sox genes: insight into nervous system development, segmentation and gonadogenesis2018In: BMC Evolutionary Biology, ISSN 1471-2148, E-ISSN 1471-2148, Vol. 18, article id 88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Sox (Sry-related high-mobility-group box) genes represent important factors in animal development. Relatively little, however, is known about the embryonic expression patterns and thus possible function(s) of Sox genes during ontogenesis in panarthropods (Arthropoda+Tardigrada+Onychophora). To date, studies have been restricted exclusively to higher insects, including the model system Drosophila melanogaster, with no comprehensive data available for any other arthropod group, or any tardigrade or onychophoran. Results: This study provides a phylogenetic analysis of panarthropod Sox genes and presents the first comprehensive analysis of embryonic expression patterns in the flour beetle Tribolium castaneum (Hexapoda), the pill millipede Glomeris marginata (Myriapoda), and the velvet worm, Euperipatoides kanangrensis (Onychophora). 24 Sox genes were identified and investigated: 7 in Euperipatoides, 8 in Glomeris, and 9 in Tribolium. Each species possesses at least one ortholog of each of the five expected Sox gene families, B, C, D, E, and F, many of which are differentially expressed during ontogenesis. Conclusion: Sox gene expression (and potentially function) is highly conserved in arthropods and their closest relatives, the onychophorans. Sox B, C and D class genes appear to be crucial for nervous system development, while the Sox B genes Dichaete (D) and Sox21b likely play an additional conserved role in panarthropod segmentation. The Sox B gene Sox21a likely has a conserved function in foregut and Malpighian tubule development, at least in Hexapoda. The data further suggest that Sox D and E genes are involved in mesoderm differentiation, and that Sox E genes are involved in gonadal development. The new data expand our knowledge about the expression and implied function of Sox genes to Mandibulata (Myriapoda+Pancrustacea) and Panarthropoda (Arthropoda+Onychophora).

    The Rising Return to Non-cognitive Skills*2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine the changes in the rewards to cognitive and non-cognitive skill during the time period 1992-2013. Using unique administrative data for Sweden, we document a secular increase in the returns to non-cognitive skill. This increase is particularly pronounced in the private sector, at the upper-end of the wage distribution, and relative to the evolution of the return to cognitive skill. Sorting across occupations responded to changes in the returns to skills. Workers with an abundance of non-cognitive skill were increasingly sorted into abstract and non-routine occupations, for example. Such occupations also saw greater increases in the relative return to non-cognitive skill. This suggests that the optimal skill mixes of jobs have changed over time, that there is sorting on comparative advantage, and that demand-side factors are primarily driving the evolution of the return to non-cognitive skill. Consistent with this, we also show that hikes in offshoring and IT-investments increase the relative reward to non-cognitive skill and the relative intensity of non-cognitive skill usage.

    Whole Exome Sequencing of Patients from Multicase Families with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Identifies Multiple Rare Variants2018In: Scientific Reports, ISSN 2045-2322, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 8, article id 8775Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In an effort to identify rare alleles associated with SLE, we have performed whole exome sequencing of the most distantly related affected individuals from two large Icelandic multicase SLE families followed by Ta targeted genotyping of additional relatives. We identified multiple rare likely pathogenic variants in nineteen genes co-segregating with the disease through multiple generations. Gene co-expression and protein-protein interaction analysis identified a network of highly connected genes comprising several loci previously implicated in autoimmune diseases. These genes were significantly enriched for immune system development, lymphocyte activation, DNA repair, and V(D) J gene recombination GO-categories. Furthermore, we found evidence of aggregate association and enrichment of rare variants at the FAM71E1/EMC10 locus in an independent set of 4,254 European SLE-cases and 4,349 controls. Our study presents evidence supporting that multiple rare likely pathogenic variants, in newly identified genes involved in known disease pathogenic pathways, segregate with SLE at the familial and population level.

    Investigating the plasma properties of a Xe-microplasma thruster2018In: 29th Micromechanics and Microsystems Europe workshop, Bratislava, Slovakia, August 26-29, 2018, Bratislava, Slovenia, 2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    By combining optical emission spectroscopy (OES) and Langumuir probes, the plasma properties of a Xenon-microplasma thruster have been investigated. Using IV-curve analysis the properties of the plasma have been determined and correlated to the power fed into it. Satisfactory agreement has been obtained with the results of OES measurements (line-ratio technique) and shock-cell distance calculations. While the fuel consumption of the thruster decreased very linearly with the power fed to the plasma, the plasma properties was found to have behave in a more complex way. In the studied power range, the density ratio between at least two ions, with upper configurations 5p5(2P◦3/2)7p and 5p5(2P◦3/2)6p, strongly indicated that the ionization processes of the former was favorable in terms of thrust for the geometry of the nozzle. This was supported electron temperature measurements from IV-curves.

    From lidar scans to roughness maps for wind resource modelling in forested areas2018In: Wind Energy Science, ISSN 2213-3968, E-ISSN 2366-7443, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 353-370Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Applying erroneous roughness lengths can have a large impact on the estimated performance of wind turbines, particularly in forested areas. In this study, a new method called the objective roughness approach (ORA), which converts tree height maps created using airborne lidar scans to roughness maps suitable for wind modelling, is evaluated via cross predictions among different anemometers at a complex forested site with seven tall meteorological masts using the Wind Atlas Analysis and Application Program (WAsP). The cross predictions were made using ORA maps created at four spatial resolutions and from four freely available roughness maps based on land use classifications. The validation showed that the use of ORA maps resulted in a closer agreement with observational data for all investigated resolutions compared to the land use maps. Further, when using the ORA maps, the risk of making large errors (>25%) in predicted power density was reduced by 40-50% compared to satellite-based products with the same resolution. The results could be further improved for high-resolution ORA maps by adding the displacement height. The improvements when using the ORA maps were both due to a higher roughness length and due to the higher resolution.

    Reviews and syntheses: Carbon use efficiency from organisms to ecosystems - definitions, theories, and empirical evidence2018In: Biogeosciences, ISSN 1726-4170, E-ISSN 1726-4189, Vol. 15, no 19, p. 5929-5949Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The cycling of carbon (C) between the Earth surface and the atmosphere is controlled by biological and abiotic processes that regulate C storage in biogeochemical compartments and release to the atmosphere. This partitioning is quantified using various forms of C-use efficiency (CUE) - the ratio of C remaining in a system to C entering that system. Biological CUE is the fraction of C taken up allocated to biosynthesis. In soils and sediments, C storage depends also on abiotic processes, so the term C-storage efficiency (CSE) can be used. Here we first review and reconcile CUE and CSE definitions proposed for autotrophic and heterotrophic organisms and communities, food webs, whole ecosystems and watersheds, and soils and sediments using a common mathematical framework. Second, we identify general CUE patterns; for example, the actual CUE increases with improving growth conditions, and apparent CUE decreases with increasing turnover. We then synthesize > 5000CUE estimates showing that CUE decreases with increasing biological and ecological organization - from uni-cellular to multicellular organisms and from individuals to ecosystems. We conclude that CUE is an emergent property of coupled biological-abiotic systems, and it should be regarded as a flexible and scale-dependent index of the capacity of a given system to effectively retain C.

    Low Free Testosterone and Prostate Cancer Risk: A Collaborative Analysis of 20 Prospective Studies2018In: European Urology, ISSN 0302-2838, E-ISSN 1873-7560, Vol. 74, no 5, p. 585-594Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Experimental and clinical evidence implicates testosterone in the aetiology of prostate cancer. Variation across the normal range of circulating free testosterone concentrations may not lead to changes in prostate biology, unless circulating concentrations are low. This may also apply to prostate cancer risk, but this has not been investigated in an epidemiological setting. Objective: To examine whether men with low concentrations of circulating free testosterone have a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Design, setting, and participants: Analysis of individual participant data from 20 prospective studies including 6933 prostate cancer cases, diagnosed on average 6.8 yr after blood collection, and 12 088 controls in the Endogenous Hormones, Nutritional Biomarkers and Prostate Cancer Collaborative Group. Outcome measurements and statistical analysis: Odds ratios (ORs) of incident overall prostate cancer and subtypes by stage and grade, using conditional logistic regression, based on study-specific tenths of calculated free testosterone concentration. Results and limitations: Men in the lowest tenth of free testosterone concentration had a lower risk of overall prostate cancer (OR = 0.77, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.69-0.86; p < 0.001) compared with men with higher concentrations (2nd-10th tenths of the distribution). Heterogeneity was present by tumour grade (p(het) = 0.01), with a lower risk of low-grade disease (OR = 0.76, 95% CI 0.67-0.88) and a nonsignificantly higher risk of high-grade disease (OR = 1.56, 95% CI 0.95-2.57). There was no evidence of heterogeneity by tumour stage. The observational design is a limitation. Conclusions: Men with low circulating free testosterone may have a lower risk of overall prostate cancer; this may be due to a direct biological effect, or detection bias. Further research is needed to explore the apparent differential association by tumour grade. Patient summary: In this study, we looked at circulating testosterone levels and risk of developing prostate cancer, finding that men with low testosterone had a lower risk of prostate cancer.

    Search for long-lived charginos based on a disappearing-track signature in pp collisions at root s=13 TeV with the ATLAS detector2018In: Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP), ISSN 1126-6708, E-ISSN 1029-8479, no 6, article id 022Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a search for direct electroweak gaugino or gluino pair production with a chargino nearly mass-degenerate with a stable neutralino. It is based on an integrated luminosity of 36.1 fb(-1) of pp collisions at root s = 13 TeV collected by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. The final state of interest is a disappearing track accompanied by at least one jet with high transverse momentum from initial-state radiation or by four jets from the gluino decay chain. The use of short track segments reconstructed from the innermost tracking layers significantly improves the sensitivity to short chargino lifetimes. The results are found to be consistent with Standard Model predictions. Exclusion limits are set at 95% confidence level on the mass of charginos and gluinos for different chargino lifetimes. For a pure wino with a lifetime of about 0.2 ns, chargino masses up to 460 GeV are excluded. For the strong production channel, gluino masses up to 1.65 TeV are excluded assuming a chargino mass of 460 GeV and lifetime of 0.2 ns.

    Innate Immunity Induces the Accumulation of Lung Mast Cells During Influenza Infection2018In: Frontiers in Immunology, ISSN 1664-3224, E-ISSN 1664-3224, Vol. 9, article id 2288Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mast cells release disease-causing mediators and accumulate in the lung of asthmatics. The most common cause of exacerbations of asthma is respiratory virus infections such as influenza. Recently, we demonstrated that influenza infection in mice triggers the recruitment of mast cell progenitors to the lung. This process starts early after infection and leads to the accumulation of mast cells. Previous studies showed that an adaptive immune response was required to trigger the recruitment of mast cell progenitors to the lung in a mouse model of allergic lung inflammation. Therefore, we set out to determine whether an adaptive immune response against the virus is needed to cause the influenza-induced recruitment of mast cell progenitors to the lung. We found that influenza-induced recruitment of mast cell progenitors to the lung was intact in Rag2(-/-) mice and mice depleted of CD4(+) cells, implicating the involvement of innate immune signals in this process. Seven weeks after the primary infection, the influenza-exposed mice harbored more lung mast cells than unexposed mice. As innate immunity was implicated in stimulating the recruitment process, several compounds known to trigger innate immune responses were administrated intranasally to test their ability to cause an increase in lung mast cell progenitors. Poly I:C, a synthetic analog of viral dsRNA, induced a TLR3-dependent increase in lung mast cell progenitors. In addition, IL-33 induced an ST2-dependent increase in lung mast cell progenitors. In contrast, the influenza-induced recruitment of mast cell progenitors to the lung occurred independently of either TLR3 or ST2, as demonstrated using Tlr3(-/-) or Il1rl1(-/-) mice. Furthermore, neutralization of IL-33 in Tlr3(-/-) mice could not abrogate the influenza-induced influx of mast cell progenitors to the lung. These results suggest that other innate receptor(s) contribute to mount the influx of mast cell progenitors to the lung upon influenza infection. Our study establishes that mast cell progenitors can be rapidly recruited to the lung by innate immune signals. This indicates that during life various innate stimuli of the respiratory tract trigger increases in the mast cell population within the lung. The expanded mast cell population may contribute to the exacerbations of symptoms which occurs when asthmatics are exposed to respiratory infections.

    Solar radio emission as a disturbance of aeronautical radionavigation2018In: Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate, ISSN 2115-7251, E-ISSN 2115-7251, Vol. 8, article id A42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    On November 4th, 2015 secondary air traffic control radar was strongly disturbed in Sweden and some other European countries. The disturbances occurred when the radar antennas were pointing at the Sun. In this paper, we show that the disturbances coincided with the time of peaks of an exceptionally strong (similar to 10(5) Solar Flux Units) solar radio burst in a relatively narrow frequency range around 1 GHz. This indicates that this radio burst is the most probable space weather candidate for explaining the radar disturbances. The dynamic radio spectrum shows that the high flux densities are not due to synchrotron emission of energetic electrons, but to coherent emission processes, which produce a large variety of rapidly varying short bursts (such as pulsations, fiber bursts, and zebra patterns). The radio burst occurs outside the impulsive phase of the associated flare, about 30 min after the soft X-ray peak, and it is temporarily associated with fast evolving activity occurring in strong solar magnetic fields. While the relationship with strong magnetic fields and the coherent spectral nature of the radio burst provide hints towards the physical processes which generate such disturbances, we have so far no means to forecast them. Well-calibrated monitoring instruments of whole Sun radio fluxes covering the UHF band could at least provide a real-time identification of the origin of such disturbances, which reports in the literature show to also affect GPS signal reception.

    Endogenous rRNA Sequence Variation Can Regulate Stress Response Gene Expression and Phenotype2018In: Cell reports, ISSN 2211-1247, E-ISSN 2211-1247, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 236-248.e6Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Prevailing dogma holds that ribosomes are uniform in composition and function. Here, we show that nutrient limitation-induced stress in E. coli changes the relative expression of rDNA operons to alter the rRNA composition within the actively translating ribosome pool. The most upregulated operon encodes the unique 16S rRNA, rrsH, distinguished by conserved sequence variation within the small ribosomal subunit. rrsH-bearing ribosomes affect the expression of functionally coherent gene sets and alter the levels of the RpoS sigma factor, the master regulator of the general stress response. These impacts are associated with phenotypic changes in antibiotic sensitivity, biofilm formation, and cell motility and are regulated by stress response proteins, ReIA and ReIE, as well as the metabolic enzyme and virulence-associated protein, AdhE. These findings establish that endogenously encoded, naturally occurring rRNA sequence variation can modulate ribosome function, central aspects of gene expression regulation, and cellular physiology.

    Megahertz serial crystallography2018In: Nature Communications, ISSN 2041-1723, E-ISSN 2041-1723, Vol. 9, article id 4025Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The new European X-ray Free-Electron Laser is the first X-ray free-electron laser capable of delivering X-ray pulses with a megahertz inter-pulse spacing, more than four orders of magnitude higher than previously possible. However, to date, it has been unclear whether it would indeed be possible to measure high-quality diffraction data at megahertz pulse repetition rates. Here, we show that high-quality structures can indeed be obtained using currently available operating conditions at the European XFEL. We present two complete data sets, one from the well-known model system lysozyme and the other from a so far unknown complex of a beta-lactamase from K. pneumoniae involved in antibiotic resistance. This result opens up megahertz serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX) as a tool for reliable structure determination, substrate screening and the efficient measurement of the evolution and dynamics of molecular structures using megahertz repetition rate pulses available at this new class of X-ray laser source.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: After a renal transplantation a lifelong treatment awaits, this contributes to many side effects and complications that effects patients quality of life.

    Aim: To investigate patients experience of quality of life after a renal transplantation.

    Method: A literature review based on 10 articles from databases CINAHL, PubMed and Scopus. The articles quality were examined and analyzed. The self-care deficit nursing theory by Orem was used as a theoretical framework for this study.

    Result: The study identified six different themes: positive experiences of life, social relations, physical side effects, fear of rejection and coping strategies. The study showed that the patients experienced positive effects due to the transplant giving them a feeling of freedom and autonomy. The patients also described the importance of having social support and economic stability. The transplantation contributed to psychological difficulties, this was a reaction to the many physical side effects the patients experienced. The fear of rejection of the kidney was the one thing patients hade most difficulty to cope with. The study also shows how too high expectations on the recovery contributed to low quality of life. Therefore the patients developed different kinds of coping strategies to handle the psychological hardships.

    Conclusion: All patients had various experiences of quality of life after the renal transplantation. The reasons for this was usually based on the physical side effects and high expectations. The nurse therefore has a big part in giving individual adjusted tools and coping strategies for the patients to use
