  1. 1. Antibacterial Effect and Inflammatory Response in Relation to Antibiotic Treatment of Sepsis

    Author : Paul Skorup; Jan Sjölin; Miklós Lipcsey; Kristoffer Strålin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Sepsis; Septic shock; Antibiotics; Aminoglycoside; β-lactam; Bacteria; E. coli; Inflammation; Cytokines; Endotoxin; Porcine; ICU; Secondary sepsis; Endotoxin-tolerance.; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : Sepsis defines as life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. The importance of early administration of antibiotics in septic shock is undisputed, but the optimal antibiotic choice remains uncertain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Poly(A)-Specific Ribonuclease (PARN)

    Author : Yan-Guo Ren; Eric Westhof; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Poly A -specific ribonuclease; PARN; deadenylation; processive; oligomeric; cap interacting; aminoglycoside; active site; FE2 -mediated cleavage; metal ion switch; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Degradation of the mRNA 3'-end located poly(A) tail is an important step for mRNA decay in mammalian cells. Thus, to understand mRNA decay in detail, it is important to identify the catalytic activities involved in degrading poly(A). READ MORE

  3. 3. Accuracy of mRNA Translation in Bacterial Protein Synthesis

    Author : Jingji Zhang; Måns Ehrenberg; Olke C. Uhlenbeck; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein synthesis; genetic code; misreading; error hot spots; kinetics; aminoglycoside; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Reading of messenger RNA (mRNA) by aminoacyl-tRNAs (aa-tRNAs) on the ribosomes in the bacterial cell occurs with high accuracy. It follows from the physical chemistry of enzymatic reactions that there must be a trade-off between rate and accuracy of initial tRNA selection in protein synthesis: when the current accuracy, the A-value, approaches its maximal possible value, the d-value, the kinetic efficiency of the reaction approaches zero.

  4. 4. Ribosomal translocation in real time : Method development to Applications

    Author : Chang-il Kim; Suparna Sanyal; Martin Ott; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ribosome; EF-G; pyrene mRNA; aminoglycoside; ribosomal protein; GTP hydrolysis; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Translational elongation is the process in which the ribosome adds one amino acid at a time to the nascent peptide chain. As the ribosome elongates the peptide chain by 14 - 20 amino acids per second and performs hundreds of such cycles per protein, ‘elongation’ is one of the most crucial steps in translation.

  5. 5. Development of Fluorescent Nucleobase Analogues - Intrinsically labelled nucleic acids for molecular binding investigations

    Author : Mattias Bood; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA; RNA; Fluorescent nucleobase analogue; FRET; pre-microRNA; isothermal titration calorimetry; surface plasmon resonance; aminoglycoside; binding interaction;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the design, synthesis and utilization of fluorescent nucleobase analogues (FBAs). FBAs are an important class of compounds, used in the research of nucleic acids. The class of canonical FBAs, i.e. READ MORE
