  1. 1. Mucins, Cystic Fibrosis and PDZ protein interactions

    Author : Emily Malmberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mucin; PDZ; transmembrane; MUC1; Cystic Fibrosis; clathrin; CFTR; PDZK1; Bcr; endocytosis; MUC17;

    Abstract : Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is caused and characterized by mutations in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene. The dominating feature of the disease is mucus accumulation on mucosal surfaces, but no direct functional connection between mucus and CFTR is known. READ MORE

  2. 2. The G protein-coupled receptor GPR30 signalosome - A novel G protein-independent mechanism regulating cAMP signaling and receptor trafficking

    Author : Stefan Broselid; Drug Target Discovery; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AKAP5; AKAP; MAGUK; cAMP signaling; constitutive signaling; signalosome; GPER; GPR30; GPCR; cytokeratin; RAMP3; apoptotic signaling; breast cancer; PDZ; PDZ-ligand;

    Abstract : The large protein family called G Protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) has co-evolved with life throughout evolution; from single cell organisms all the way to complex beings such as us humans. The fact that GPCRs are involved in essentially every physiological event, and that ~50% of drugs on the current market are either directly or indirectly targeted towards the function of GPCRs, we can be certain of their considerable importance.

  3. 3. Functional characterization of interactions between the flavivirus NS5 protein and PDZ proteins of the mammalian host

    Author : Karin Ellencrona; Magnus Johansson; Andrew Davidson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tick-borne encephalitis virus TBEV ; West-Nile virus WNV ; Dengue virus DENV ; flavivirus; PDZ domains; ZO-2; ZO-1; RIMS2; Scribble; Interferon; JAK-STAT signaling; PDZ array; virus-host protein interaction; Genetics; Genetik; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Flaviviruses are found all over the world and affect and infect millions of people every year. Flavivirus infection can lead to severe clinical outcomes resulting in neuronal damages e.g. Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV), or severe hemorrhagic fevers e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Protein Folding, Binding and Evolution : PDZ domains and paralemmins as model systems

    Author : Greta Hultqvist; Per Jemth; Ruth Nussinov; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein folding; evolution; binding; allostery; Paralemmin; PDZ domain;

    Abstract : Proteins present at the synapse need to be multitasking in order to perform all vital functions in this limited space. In this thesis I have analyzed the function and evolution of such proteins, focusing on the PDZ domain and the paralemmin family. The PDZ domains bind to a wide variety of interaction partners.

  5. 5. Characterization and Engineering of Protein-Protein Interactions Involving PDZ Domains

    Author : Andreas Karlsson; Per Jemth; Daniel Otzen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; intrinsically disordered protein regions; PDZ domain; binding kinetics; protein engineering; interaction mechanism; specificity; PDZbody; Chemistry with specialization in Biophysics; Kemi med inriktning mot biofysik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis has contributed with knowledge to several aspects of protein-protein interaction involving PDZ domains. A substantial amount of our proteome contains regions that are intrinsically disordered but fold upon ligand interaction. READ MORE
