  1. 1. Theoretical studies of porphyrin proteins

    University dissertation from Emma Sigfridsson, Department of theoretical Chemistry, Chemical Centre

    Author : Emma Sigfridsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molecular mechanics; quantum chemical calculations; electrostatic potential charges; atomic charges; ferrochelatase; cytochrome; myoglobin; Porphyrin; haem; QM MM; reorganisation energy; Theoretical chemistry; quantum chemistry; Teoretisk kemi; kvantkemi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Hemoglobin, det protein som transporterar syre i blodet är förmodligen det mest välkända proteinet. Det är ett av många exempel på porfyrinproteiner, dvs. proteiner med en porfyrinring i det aktiva centrat. Porfyrinen kan binda en metalljon i mitten av ringen. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lipases as Biocatalysts in Organic Media. Influence of Enzyme Preparation and Reaction Conditions on Activity and Selectivity

    University dissertation from Mattias Persson Sölvegatan 39, kemicentrum, Lunds universitet

    Author : Mattias Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biochemical technology; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; water activity; temperature; enantioselectivity; immobilisation; organic solvents; lyophilisation; Lipases; Accurel EP-100; Biokemisk teknik; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : The discovery that enzymes can function in organic solvents has broadened the scope of biocatalysis, making enzymes highly useful tools for organic chemists. The widespread use of enzymes as catalysts in organic solvents has, however, been limited by the low activity obtained for enzymes in organic solvents compared to aqueous solutions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular genetic studies on cystinuria

    University dissertation from Institutionen för klinisk och experimentell medicin

    Author : Lotta Harnevik; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Amino acid transport systems; Amino acids diamino; Mutation; Sulphydryl compounds; urine; Cystine; Carrier proteins; Cystinuria; DNA mutational analysis; Dog diseases; genetic; Membrane glycoproteins; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics Medical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik Medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Cystinuria is defined as an inherited disorder characterized by increased urinary excretion of cystine and the dibasic amino acids arginine, lysine and ornithine. The only clinical manifestation of cystinuria is renal cystine stone formation due to the low solubility of cystine in the urine. READ MORE

  4. 4. On certain genetic and metabolic risk factors for carotid stenosis and stroke

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Pär W. Wanby; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin; Carotid artery diseases; Carrier proteins; genetics; Cerebrovascular accident; Cerebrovascular disorders; Genetic predisposition to disease; Polymorphism; genetic; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : The present study evaluated genetic and metabolic factors influencing the risk of acute cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and internal carotid artery stenosis (ICA stenosis) in a Swedish community. The threonine (T) containing protein of the FABP2 A54T gene polymorphism has a greater affinity for long chain fatty acids (FFAs) than the alanine (A) containing protein. READ MORE

    Abstract : Drug transport across cells and cell membranes in the human body is crucial for the pharmacological effect of drugs. Active transport governed by transport proteins plays an important role in this process. A vast number of transport proteins with a wide tissue distribution have been identified during the last 15 years. READ MORE
