  1. 1. Studies on the biosynthesis of ABH and Lewis epitopes on O-glycans

    Author : Jonas Löfling; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Fucose; Lewis antigen; Blood group ABH; biosynthesis;

    Abstract : ABH and Lewis antigens are carbohydrate epitopes (glycans) found on a wide variety of cell surfaces. They are involved in many biological processes, e.g transplantation rejection, bacterial and viral adhesion, cell-cell communication and metastasis. The in vivo synthesis of glycans is mediated by glycosyltransferases (GTs). READ MORE

  2. 2. Computational analysis of oligosaccharide conformations – methodological development, applied studies, and design of glycomimetics

    Author : Francesco Strino; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; histo-blood group antigens; Burkholderia cepacia; genetic algorithms; norovirus; selenoglycosides; sugar conformations; thioglycosides; saccharide conformations;

    Abstract : Carbohydrates are the most abundant class of biomolecules. Besides their roles as structural elements and energy storage, they are involved in signaling and recognition processes. Their functions and activities depend on their preferred conformations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biomarkers and viral risk factors in multiple sclerosis

    Author : Jesse Huang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease resulting in axonal injury and demyelination of nerve fibers in the central nervous system. The causal factor and pathological mechanisms governing disease progression have remained elusive, limiting the available clinical tools for MS diagnosis and treatment monitoring, particularly in the periphery.
