  1. 1. Development and Evaluation of Tools to Explore Posttranslational HexNAc-Tyrosine and Mucin-Type O-Glycosylation

    Author : Sandra Behren; Ulrika Westerlind; Mikael Elofsson; Carmen Galan; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glycopeptides; mucins; mucin type-O-glycosylation; microarrays; tyrosine-O-HexNAcylation; lectins; MUC1 cancer vaccines; TcdA; LecB; galectins; LacdiNAc; antibodies; biologisk kemi; biological chemistry; Biorganic Chemistry; bioorganisk kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Glycosylation is the most abundant form of post-translational modification (PTM). Recently, O-glycosylation attracted much attention in the glycoproteomic field due to its association with various diseases, such as pathogenic infections and cancer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Statistical molecular design, QSAR modeling, and scaffold hopping – Development of type III secretion inhibitors in Gram negative bacteria

    Author : Markus Dahlgren; Mikael Elofsson; Bo Nordén; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistical molecular design; QSAR; synthesis; type III secretion; virulence; scaffold hopping; Bioorganic chemistry; Bioorganisk kemi; datorlingvistik; computational linguistics;

    Abstract : Type III secretion is a virulence system utilized by several clinically important Gram-negative pathogens. Computational methods have been used to develop two classes of type III secretion inhibitors, the salicylidene acylhydrazides and the acetylated salicylanilides. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bax and oxidized phospholipids - a deadly complex : Apoptotic protein-lipid assemblies studied by MAS NMR spectroscopy

    Author : Artur Dingeldein; Gerhard Gröbner; Mikael Elofsson; Tobias Sparrman; Daniel Topgaard; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP) has emerged as a potential new therapeutic target for treatment of cognitive disorders. Inhibition of the enzymatic activity facilitates cognition in rodents. READ MORE

  5. 5. Antivirulent and antibiofilm salicylidene acylhydrazide complexes in solution and at interfaces

    Author : Shoghik Hakobyan; Madeleine Ramstedt; Jean-Francois Boily; Mikael Elofsson; Marcus Textor; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Antivirulent; Antibiofilm; Hydrazones; Gallium; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Type three secretion system; Equilibrium constant; Chemical equilibrium modelling; Spectrophotometric titration; UV-Vis;

    Abstract : The growing bacterial resistance against antibiotics creates a limitation for using traditional antibiotics and requests development of new approaches for treatment of bacterial infections. Among the bacterial infections that are most difficult to treat, biofilm-associated infections are one of the most hazardous. READ MORE
