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

    Author : Ineke Luijten; Jan Nedergaard; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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. Metal homeostasis as critical determinant for cellular fitness

    Author : Jutta Diessl; Sabrina Büttner; Rajini Rao; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; metal homeostasis; manganese toxicity; coenzyme Q synthesis; mitochondrial respiration; calcineurin signaling; Pmr1; SPCA1; calcium; survival; caloric restriction; Parkinson’s disease models; proteotoxicity; Pep4; cathepsin D; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Metals play a crucial role in cellular biology. Bulk and trace metals such as calcium and manganese regulate a plethora of cellular processes ranging from signaling and oxidative stress to proteostasis and energy metabolism. READ MORE

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

    Author : Anna E. Masser; Claes Andréasson; Marie Öhman; David Pincus; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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
