  1. 1. Enzymes in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis MEP and CoA Pathways Targeted for Structure-Based Drug Design

    Author : Christofer Björkelid; T. Alwyn Jones; Torsten Unge; Sherry L. Mowbray; William N. Hunter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tuberculosis; Mycobacterium tuberculosis; MEP pathway; CoA pathway; drug development; crystal structure; DXR; IspD; PanK; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Molecular Biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Tuberculosis, caused by the pathogenic bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is one of the most widespread and deadly infectious diseases today. Treatment of tuberculosis relies on antibiotics that were developed more than 50 years ago. These are now becoming ineffective due to the emergence of antibiotic resistant strains of the bacteria.

  2. 2. Novel Synthetic Biology Tools for Metabolic Engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Siavash Partow; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Yeast promoter; MVA pathway; Metabolic engineering; Multi-copy plasmid.; Synthetic biology; S. cerevisiae; MEP pathway;

    Abstract : The most well characterized eukaryote model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae is not only preferred as a microbial cell factory for synthesis of industrial products, e.g. bioethanol, but this eukaryote host system is also defined as a robust scaffold for commercial production of diverse chemicals e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural and Functional Studies of Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase A and 1-deoxy-D-xylulose- 5-phosphate reductoisomerase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Author : Lena M Henriksson; Torsten Unge; Sherry L. Mowbray; Barbara Seaton; Uppsala universitet; []

  5. 5. Computational Modelling in Drug Discovery : Application of Structure-Based Drug Design, Conformal Prediction and Evaluation of Virtual Screening

    Author : Martin Lindh; Anders Karlén; Antti Poso; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; drug discovery; docking; virtual screening; tuberculosis; conformal prediction;

    Abstract : Structure-based drug design and virtual screening are areas of computational medicinal chemistry that use 3D models of target proteins. It is important to develop better methods in this field with the aim of increasing the speed and quality of early stage drug discovery. READ MORE
