Chloroplast lipid droplet type II NAD(P)H oxidoreductase, NDC1, is essential for vitamin E and K1 metabolism

Eugeni Piller, Lucia ; Kessler, Felix (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

Plant cells in different tissues contain specialized organelles belonging to the family of plastids. The chloroplast is the most prominent family member and responsible for photosynthesis in leaves. Most plastid types contain lipoprotein particles ("lipid droplets") termed plastoglobules. Little is known about plastoglobules that were long regarded as passive storage droplets. Indeed, the...

Conjugacy growth series of groups

Mercier, Valentin ; Ciobanu, Laura I. (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

In this thesis we study the conjugacy growth series of several group constructions in terms of the standard and the conjugacy growth series of the building groups, with a specific generating set. This includes (1) groups of the form $G\wr L$ when $L$ admits a Cayley graph that is a tree, (2) graph products, (3) a specific free product of $\mathbb{Z}*\mathbb{Z}$ with amalgamation over...

Random sampling with repulsion

Wilhelm, Matthieu ; Tillé, Yves (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

In this thesis, we explore the concept of repulsion and exploit it to develop new sampling designs. The first chapter is a review of the literature about sampling in finite population and consists of two distinct parts. In the first one, we suggest three principles as guidelines for designing a survey: randomization, overrepresentation and restriction. In the second part, we review the...

The influence of model structure on groundwater recharge rates in climate-change impact studies

Moeck, Christian ; Brunner, Philip ; Hunkeler, Daniel

In: Hydrogeology journal, 2016, vol. 24, p. 1171-1184

Numerous modeling approaches are available to provide insight into the relationship between climate change and groundwater recharge. However, several aspects of how hydrological model choice and structure affect recharge predictions have not been fully explored, unlike the well-established variability of climate model chains—combination of global climate models (GCM) and regional climate models...

Intrinsic biodegradation potential of aromatic hydrocarbons in an alluvial aquifer - Potentials and limits of signature metabolite analysis and two stable isotope-based techniques

Morasch, B ; Hunkeler, Daniel ; Zopfi, J ; Temime, B ; Höhener, P

In: Water Research, 2011, vol. 45, p. 4459-4469

Three independent techniques were used to assess the biodegradation of monoaromatic hydrocarbons and low-molecular weight polyaromatic hydrocarbons in the alluvial aquifer at the site of a former cokery (Flémalle, Belgium). Firstly, a stable carbon isotope-based field method allowed quantifying biodegradation of monoaromatic compounds in situ and confirmed the degradation of naphthalene....

Monitoring Microbial Dechlorination of Tetrachloroethene (PCE) in Groundwater Using Compound-Specific Stable Carbon Isotope Ratios : Microcosm and Field Studies

Hunkeler, Daniel ; Aravena, R ; Butler, B.J

In: Environmental Science & Technology, 1999, vol. 33, p. 2733-2738

The determination of compound-specific stable isotope ratios is a promising new tool to assess biodegradation of organic compounds in groundwater. In this study, the occurrence of carbon isotope fractionation during dechlorination of tetrachloroethene (PCE) to ethene was evaluated in a PCE-contaminated aquifer and in a microcosm that was based on aquifer material from the site. In the microcosm,...
