  1. 1. Building a map of the breast cancer proteome - Strategies to increase coverage

    Author : Paolo Cifani; Institutionen för Immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Quantitative proteomics; Mass-Spectrometry; Cancer; DNA repair; Hypoxia; PTMs; Sample fractionation; Database;

    Abstract : Amongst the various –omics sciences, proteomics has the highest potential for functional characterization and consequently can contribute significantly to the field of cancer research. In particular, the focus of this thesis is on breast cancer. READ MORE

  2. 2. SOX11 in Mantle Cell Lymphoma - Novel Tools for Diagnostic, Prognostic and Functional Investigations

    Author : Lena Nordström; Institutionen för Immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Antibodies; DNA methylation; Epigenetics; SOX11; Lymphoma;

    Abstract : The goal of biomarker discovery is to identify disease defining molecules, which could be used to improve early detection and/or to predict survival and response to treatment. This thesis is about the transcription factor SOX11, a protein discovered in the context of mantle cell lymphoma in 2008, which shows great potential to be used as a clinical relevant biomarker.

  3. 3. Quality Control for high-throughput Quantitative Proteomics - Harnessing the potential of label-free LC-MS

    Author : Marianne Sandin; Institutionen för Immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proteomics; mass spectrometry; quality control; data analysis; label-free; feature detection; alignment; biomarker discovery; separation techniques;

    Abstract : Multiplex protein quantification, proteomics, is essential for uncovering new biomarkers and understanding biology. Liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS) is the predominant technique for these measurements. READ MORE

  4. 4. Profiling the cancer proteome

    Abstract : Cancer is a complex and heterogeneous disease where cells have started to grow uncontrolled and this disease remains a major health problem. Because of diffuse symptoms it often presents at a late stage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Membrane protein proteomics - Novel method for membrane protein identification and quantification

    Author : Maria Bentz; Institutionen för Immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biokemisk teknik; mebran; steroider; Lipider; membranes; steroids; Lipids; enzymologi; Proteiner; Membrane proteins; Proteomics; Proteinase K; N-terminal labelling; Relative Quantitation; Database search; Cancer; Cytology; oncology; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer; enzymology; Proteins; Biochemical technology;

    Abstract : Membrane proteins are fairly refractory to digestion especially by trypsin. Less specific proteases like elastase and pepsin are much more effective. However database searching using non-tryptic peptides is much less effective due to the lack of charge localisation at the N- and C-termini and the absence of sequence specificity. READ MORE
