  3. 3. Protein Folding and DNA Origami

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mark Marvin Seibert; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein folding; Molecular Dynamics simulations; DNA origami; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Biophysics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Biofysik; Physics with specialization in Biophysics; Fysik med inriktning mot biofysik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the folding process of the de novo designed polypeptide chignolin was elucidated through atomic-scale Molecular Dynamics (MD) computer simulations. In a series of long timescale and replica exchange MD simulations, chignolin’s folding and unfolding was observed numerous times and the native state was identified from the computed Gibbs free-energy landscape.

  4. 4. Biophysical studies of cell-penetrating peptides and of the RNR inhibitor Sml1

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Elsa Bárány-Wallje; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cell-penetrating peptides; transportan; bicelles; Sml1; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Biophysics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Biofysik; Biophysics; biofysik;

    Abstract : Several short peptides, so called cell-penetrating peptides, have the capability to transport large hydrophilic cargos through the cell membrane. The objective is to use these peptides as drug carriers and thereby enhance the uptake of drugs into cells.Three different cell-penetrating peptides are characterized in this thesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structure and Dynamics of Membrane Associated Peptides

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Henrik Biverståhl; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Biophysics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Biofysik; Biophysics; biofysik;

    Abstract : The peptide-membrane interaction is a key element for many biological functions, from cell signaling to cell internalization. In this thesis the peptide-membrane interaction of six different peptides have been studied with respect to their structure, membrane location and dynamics with spectroscopic methods. READ MORE
