    Abstract : Spinocerebellar Ataxia type 7 (SCA7) is a genetic neurodegenerative disease with lethal outcome that affects the cerebellum and retina of patients. This thesis focuses on characterising molecular pathological pathways that cause toxicity and cell death in SCA7. READ MORE

  2. 2. Oligonucleotide Complexes with Cell-Penetrating Peptides : Structure, Binding, Translocation and Flux in Lipid Membranes

    Author : Luis Daniel Ferreira Vasconcelos; Ülo Langel; Tore Bengtsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell-penetrating peptide; Large unilamellar vesicle; Membrane perturbation; Endosomal escape; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : The ability of cell-penetrating peptides to cross plasma membranes has been explored for various applications, including the delivery of bioactive molecules to inhibit disease-causing cellular processes. The uptake mechanisms by which cell-penetrating peptides enter cells depend on the conditions, such as the cell line the concentration and the temperature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Vectorization of oligonucleotides with cell-penetrating peptides : Characterization of uptake mechanisms and cytotoxicity

    Author : Samir EL Andaloussi; Ülo Langel; Alain Prochiantz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CPP; endocytosis; splice correction; siRNA; PNA; cargo delivery; M918; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : The hydrophobic plasma membrane constitutes an indispensable barrier for cells in living animals. Albeit being pivotal for the maintenance of cells, the inability to cross the plasma membrane is still one of the major obstacles to overcome in order to progress current drug development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of nucleic acid delivery with fatty acid modified cell-penetrating peptide nanoparticle formulations

    Author : Tõnis Lehto; Ülo Langel; Patrick Midoux; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transfection; gene delivery; oligonucleotide; complexes; non-viral; in vivo; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : Recent advances with techniques used for manipulating gene expression have brought us to an era where various gene therapeutic approaches are becoming common therapeutic tools for many previously incurable diseases. The main factor impeding the wider translation of gene therapy is that the active pharmaceutical ingredients used for interfering with gene expression are based on nucleic acids and synthetic oligonucleotides and such molecules do not readily reach their intracellular targets due to their physicochemical properties and therefore they require delivery vectors to cross the cell membrane.

  5. 5. Development of a new protective group for tryptophan

    Author : Marie Danielsson; Anders Undén; Amelie Karlström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : A new protective group for the indole nitrogen of the amino acid tryptophan, the Boc-sarcosinoyl-sarcosinolyl (Boc-Sar-Sar) is described. This protective group shows good stability to the reaction conditions used in solid phase peptide synthesis and is incorporated into the peptide as FmocTrp(BocSarSar)OH. READ MORE
