  1. 1. The effects of glucocorticoids on brown fat : physiological and molecular studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Ineke Luijten; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is the main site for non-shivering thermogenesis in most mammals. The BAT-specific uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1) uncouples substrate oxidation from ATP production and hereby decreases metabolic efficiency. READ MORE

  2. 2. Controlling protein homeostasis through regulation of Heat shock factor 1

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Anna E. Masser; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stress; protein homeostasis; molecular chaperones; heat shock response; Hsf1; Hsp70; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : In order to thrive in a changing environment all organisms need to ensure protein homeostasis (proteostasis). Proteostasis is ensured by the proteostasis system that monitors the folding status of the proteome and regulates cell physiology and gene expression to counteract any perturbations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Engineering of Affibody molecules for Radionuclide Molecular Imaging and Intracellular Targeting

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Camilla Hofström; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Affibody molecules; affinity proteins; radionuclide molecular imaging; intracellular targeting; EGFR; HER2; IGF-1R; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Affibody molecules are small (7 kDa) affinity proteins of non-immunoglobulin origin that have been generated to specifically interact with a large number of clinically important molecular targets.In this thesis, Affibody molecules have been employed as tracers for radionuclide molecular imaging of HER2- and IGF-1R-expressing tumors, paper I-IV, and for surface knock-down of EGFR, paper V.

  4. 4. On the Design of Affibody Molecules for Radiolabeling and In Vivo Molecular Imaging

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Daniel Rosik; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Affibody molecule; AC DC; radionuclide molecular imaging; HER2; SPECT; PET; biodistribution; peptide synthesis; radiolabeling; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Affibody molecules have lately shown great potential as tools for in vivo molecular imaging. These small, 3-helical bundles, with their highly stable protein scaffold, are well suited for the often harsh conditions of radiolabeling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development and evaluation of a subunit DIVA vaccine against bluetongue virus serotype 8 in cattle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jenna Anderson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Bluetongue virus (BTV) causes the primarily vector-borne bluetongue disease of ruminants, which poses a permanent threat to Europe since new serotypes and strains are frequently introduced. Vaccination of cattle is essential to control BTV outbreaks. READ MORE
