  1. 1. Mitochondria in Alzheimer's Disease : The Presequence Protease and Mitochondria-Associated ER Membranes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Catarina Moreira Pinho; Elzbieta Glaser; Paolo Bernardi; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Alzheimer s Disease; Mitochondria; Mitochondria-associated ER membranes; human Presequence Protease; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most prevalent age-related neurodegenerative disorders and the accumulation of the amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) in the temporal lobe has been implicated in the pathology of AD. Synaptic transmission in neuronal cells is a highly energy dependent process, which relies on the presence and proper function of mitochondria. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mitochondria and Human Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Max Ingman; Ulf Gyllensten; Peter Underhill; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; mitochondria; hominidae; human evolution; population genetics; Genetik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik; Genetics; genetik;

    Abstract : Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has been a potent tool in studies of the evolution of modern humans, human migrations and the dynamics of human populations over time. The popularity of this cytoplasmic genome has largely been due to its clonal inheritance (in Man) allowing the tracing of a direct genetic line. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dual targeting of glutathione reductase to mitochondria and chloroplasts

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Charlotta Rudhe; Elzbieta Glaser; Ralf Bernad Klösgen; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dual targeting; mitochondria; chloroplasts; import; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : As a consequence of the presence of both mitochondria and chloroplasts in plant cells there is a higher sorting requirement in a plant cell than that in a non-plant cell. Reflecting this, protein import to mitochondria and chloroplasts has been shown to be highly specific. READ MORE

  4. 4. PresequenceProtease (PreP), a novel Peptidasome in Mitochondria and Chloroplasts Localization, Function, Structure and Mechanism of Proteolysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Shashi Bhushan; Elzbieta Glaser; Johannes Herrmann; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein import; mitochondria; chloroplasts; PresequenceProtease; Alzheimer; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The information for mitochondrial and chloroplastic protein import and targeting generally resides in the N-terminal part of the protein, called a targeting peptide. The targeting peptide is cleaved off by the organellar processing peptidases after import of a precursor protein. READ MORE

  5. 5. Protein phosphorylation in plant mitochondria

    University dissertation from John F Allen, Plant Cell Biology, Box 7007, 220 07 Lund, Sweden

    Author : André Struglics; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; FoF1-ATPase; autophosphorylation; protein kinase activity; protein phosphorylation; Plant mitochondria; inner mitochondrial membrane; NDPK; Physiological biophysics; Växtfysiologi;

    Abstract : Protein phosphorylation in the subcompartments of plant mitochondria was investigated by labelling with [gamma-32P]ATP and by SDS-PAGE/autoradiography. About 20 proteins in inside-out inner mitochondrial membranes from potato tubers were phosphorylated by endogenous protein kinases when incubated with [gamma-32P]ATP. READ MORE
