  1. 1. Antimicrobial Peptide Interactions with Phospholipid Membranes Effects of Peptide and Lipid Composition on Membrane Adsorption and Disruption

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Adam A Strömstedt; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antimicrobial; peptide; adsorption; liposome; membrane; melittin; cholesterol; tryptophan; phospholipid; bilayer; PHARMACY; FARMACI; farmaceutisk fysikalisk kemi; Pharmaceutical Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : The interactions between antimicrobial peptides and phospholipid membranes were investigated, in terms of lipid headgroup variations and the role of cholesterol, as well as peptide composition and structure. Also strategies for increasing proteolytic stability were evaluated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interaction Between Antimicrobial Peptides and Phospholipid Membranes Effects of Peptide Length and Composition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lovisa Ringstad; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adsorption; antibacterial; antimicrobial peptide; bilayer; ellipsometry; electrochemistry; electrostatic interactions; hydrophobicity; liposome; membrane; monolayer; phospholipid; secondary structure; supported bilayer.; PHARMACY; FARMACI; farmaceutisk fysikalisk kemi; Pharmaceutical Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Due to increasing problems with bacterial resistance development, there is a growing need for identifying new types of antibiotics. Antimicrobial peptides constitute an interesting group of substances for this purpose, since they are believed to act mainly by disrupting the bacterial membrane, which is a fast and non-specific mechanism.

  3. 3. Drug Partitioning into Natural and Artificial Membranes Data Applicable in Predictions of Drug Absorption

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för naturvetenskaplig biokemi

    Author : Caroline Engvall; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Bilayer disk; Cholesterol; Drug partitioning; Drugs; Electrostatic effects; Immobilized liposome chromatography; Liposome; Membrane protein; Model membrane; Oligonucleotide-liposome complex; Phospholipid; Phospholipid bilayer; Proteoliposome; Surfactant; Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : When drug molecules are passively absorbed through the cell membrane in the small intestine, the first key step is partitioning of the drug into the membrane. Partition data can therefore be used to predict drug absorption. READ MORE

  4. 4. Phospholipid membranes in biosensor applications Stability, activity and kinetics of reconstituted proteins and glycolipids in supported membranes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för naturvetenskaplig biokemi

    Author : Inga Gustafson; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Phospholipid films; Liposomes; Membrane proteins; Glycolipids; Ellipsometry; Langmuir Blodgett LB ; Surface plasmon resonance SPR ; Resonant mirror RM ; Atomic force microscopy AFM ; Biosensors; Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : In this study the formation of supported membranes onto planar solid supports has been investigated. The stability and activity of reconstituted membrane receptors has been studied. The potential use of such preparations in biosensor applications is discussed.The lipid films were made by the Langmuir Blodgett and by the liposome fusion techniques. READ MORE

  5. 5. Partitioning of Drugs and Lignin Precursor Models into Artificial Membranes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Boija; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Biochemistry; Bilayer disk; Capillary electrophoresis; Detergent; Drug; Electrostatic interaction; Hydrophobic interaction; Immobilized liposome chromatography; Lignin; Lignin precursor model; Liposome; Membrane model; Octanol water partitioning; Partitioning; Phospholipid; Phospholipid bilayer; Sterol; Biokemi;

    Abstract : The main aim of this thesis was to characterize membrane-solute interactions using artificial membranes in immobilized liposome chromatography or capillary electrophoresis. The partitioning of a solute into a cell membrane is an essential step in diffusion across the membrane. READ MORE
