    There are three prolyl hydroxylases (PHD1, 2 and 3) that regulate the hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs), the master transcriptional regulators that respond to changes in intracellular O(2) tension. In high O(2) tension (normoxia) the PHDs hydroxylate ...
  • Guðmundsdóttir, Petra Landmark; Andrésson, Ólafur (Agricultural University of Iceland, 2019)
    Fungal distribution in a liverwort-based biocrust was examined at different depths (0, 5 and 20 mm) by direct counting using both light and fluorescence microscopy. The DNA-based taxonomic composition of fungi was also determined and differences between ...

  • Elm Heintz, Kasper (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2019-07)
    In the early Universe, most of the cold neutral gas that will later form into individual stars and galaxies is practically invisible to us. These neutral gas reservoirs can, however, be illuminated by bright cosmic lightsources such as gamma-ray bursts ...
  • Tryggvason, Eysteinn (Hið íslenzka náttúrufræðifélag, 1959)
    During this period, three seismograph stations were operated in Iceland, at Reykjavík, Akureyri and Vík. A new seismograph station was erected at Kirkjubæjarklaustur (Síða) in 1958, where one vertical Willmore seismograph is operated. The seismic ...
  • Tryggvason, Eysteinn (Hið íslenzka náttúrufræðifélag, 1956)
    The seismograph station at Reykjavik was operated with three short period Sprengnether seismographs during these years. New stations were erected at Akureyri (65°40.3' N, 18°06.0' W) and at Vík (63°25.3' N, 19°01.0' W). At both these stations, one ...
  • Tryggvason, Eysteinn (Hið íslenzka náttúrufræðifélag, 1954)
    The seismic activity was relatively low in Iceland during this year. No large shock occurred, and no damage was done by earthquakes. The largest shock came on February 10th, with epicenter off the north coast (about 66°40'N, 17°0'W), origin time l ...
