  1. 1. Binding Three Kinds of Vision

    Author : Leo Poom; Myron Braunstein; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; Attribute-invariance; binding; contours; edge linking; gestalt-laws; illusory contour; lateral interactions; neuronal mechanisms; tilt effect; vision; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Pictorial cues, together with motion and stereoscopic depth fields, can be used for perception and constitute ‘three kinds’ of vision. Edges in images are important features and can be created in either of these attributes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Protein Folding, Binding and Evolution : PDZ domains and paralemmins as model systems

    Author : Greta Hultqvist; Per Jemth; Ruth Nussinov; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein folding; evolution; binding; allostery; Paralemmin; PDZ domain;

    Abstract : Proteins present at the synapse need to be multitasking in order to perform all vital functions in this limited space. In this thesis I have analyzed the function and evolution of such proteins, focusing on the PDZ domain and the paralemmin family. The PDZ domains bind to a wide variety of interaction partners.

  3. 3. Challenges in Computational Biochemistry: Solvation and Ligand Binding

    Author : Jens Carlsson; Johan Åqvist; Chris Reynolds; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Molecular biology; computer simulations; molecular dynamics; solvation free energy; Generalized-Born; Poisson-Boltzmann; ligand binding; binding free energy; linear interaction energy; binding entropy; hydration entropy; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Accurate calculations of free energies for molecular association and solvation are important for the understanding of biochemical processes, and are useful in many pharmaceutical applications. In this thesis, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are used to calculate thermodynamic properties for solvation and ligand binding. READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel binding specificities engineered into the scaffold of a carbohydrate binding module

    Author : Lavinia Cicortas Gunnarsson; Institutionen för immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; carbohydrate binding module; binding specificity; selection; combinatorial library; scaffold; protein engineering;

    Abstract : The growing field of biotechnology is in constant need of proteins that can function as recognition tools for separational, analytical and therapeutic purposes. Different molecular engineering approaches are applied on natural proteins in order to create variants with desired properties. READ MORE
