  1. 1. Directed Evolution of Glutathione Transferases Guided by Multivariate Data Analysis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sanela Kurtovic; Bengt Mannervik; Ulf Hellman; Denis Pompon; [2008]
    Keywords : Biochemistry; DNA shuffling; substrate selectivity; mutant library; glutathione transferase; multivariate data analysis; prodrug; Biokemi;

    Abstract : Evolution of enzymes with novel functional properties has gained much attention in recent years. Naturally evolved enzymes are adapted to work in living cells under physiological conditions, circumstances that are not always available for industrial processes calling for novel and better catalysts.

  2. 2. Mutational Analysis and Redesign of Alpha-class Glutathione Transferases for Enhanced Azathioprine Activity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olof Modén; Bengt Mannervik; Mikael Widersten; Kenneth Tew; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; allelic variants; azathioprine; bioactivation; chimeric mutagenesis; directed evolution; DNA shuffling; enzyme engineering; glutathione transferase; GST; lysate screening; molecular docking; multiple alignment; multivariate analysis; polymorphism; principal component analysis; prodrug; prodrug activation; protein engineering; protein redesign; reduced amino acid alphabet; saturation mutagenesis; semi-rational enzyme engineering; site-directed mutagenesis; structure-activity relationship; structure-based redesign; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Glutathione transferase (GST) A2-2 is the human enzyme most efficient in catalyzing azathioprine activation. Structure-function relationships were sought explaining the higher catalytic efficiency compared to other alpha class GSTs. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the engineering of proteins: methods and applications for carbohydrate-active enzymes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Fredrika Gullfot; Harry Brumer; Antoni Planas; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; enzyme engineering; rational design; directed evolution; DNA shuffling; glycosynthase; xyloglucan; xyloglucan endo-transglycosylase; retaining glycoside hydrolase; xyloglucanase; carbohydrate binding module; polysaccharide synthesis; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the application of different protein engineering methods on enzymes and non-catalytic proteins that act upon xyloglucans. Xyloglucans are polysaccharides found as storage polymers in seeds and tubers, and as cross-linking glucans in the cell wall of plants. READ MORE

  4. 4. Redesign of substrate specificity of glutathione transferase and glutathione reductase : Enzyme engineering by directed mutagenesis, phage-display selection and DNA shuffling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lars O. Hansson; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Human glutathione transferase (GST) A1-1 was expressed in fusion with the phage gene IIIproduct and a library of phage-displayed GST mutants was constructed by randomization of fouractive-site residues. Variant GSTs were isolated by mechanism-based phage display selection, using an immobilized transition-state analog of a nucleophilic aromatic substitution (SNAr) reaction. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evolution of cellular complexity and other remarkable features in Gemmataceae Complex bacterial lineages defy prokaryotic trends

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular evolution; Planctomycetes; Gemmataceae; functional organization; signalling; protein interaction; peptidoglycan; membranes; cell division; radiation tolerance; Pfam; SCOP; comparative genomics; protein architecture; domain shuffling and orthologous clustering; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Bacteria of the family Gemmataceae belong the phylum Planctomycetes and are remarkable because of their complex cellular architectures, previously considered to be traits exclusive to eukaryotes. This thesis provides clues to the atypical cell envelope, the enhanced radiotolerance and the amazing cellular complexity of these bacteria. READ MORE
