  1. 1. Cytochrome P450 Enzymes in Bile Acid Biosynthesis and Fatty Acid Metabolism Studies on Members of the Porcine CYP4A and CYP8B Subfamilies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kerstin Lundell; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biochemistry; cytochrome P450; bile acids; fatty acids; CYP4A; CYP8B; genome; porcine; hyocholic acid; Farmaceutisk biokemi; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical biochemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk biokemi; farmaceutisk biokemi; Pharmaceutical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The present investigation is devoted to studies on porcine members of the cytochrome P450 4A (CYP4A) and CYP8B1 subfamilies, which are involved in bile acid biosynthesis and fatty acid metabolism. Hyocholic acid is considered to fulfil the requirements for trihydroxy bile acids in the domestic pig (Sus scrofa) in the absence of cholic acid. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cytochrome P450 enzymes in the biosynthesis and metabolism of bile acids and active forms of vitamin D

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Zufan Araya; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; farmaceutisk biokemi; Pharmaceutical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Cytochrome P450 enzymes catalyzing hydroxylations in the biosynthesis and metabolism of bile acids and active forms of vitamin D3 were studied.A microsomal cytochrome P450 enzyme with a molecular mass of 53 kDa, catalyzing the 6α-hydroxylation of taurochenodeoxycholic acid was purfied from pig liver microsomes and characterized with respect to catalytic and electrophoretic properties as well as polyclonal antibodies.

  3. 3. Cytochrome P450 enzymes in oxygenation of prostaglandin endoperoxides and arachidonic acid Cloning, expression and catalytic properties of CYP4F8 and CYP4F21

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Bylund; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; farmaceutisk biokemi; Pharmaceutical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Cytochrome P450 (P450 or CYP) is an enzyme system involved in the oxygenation of a wide range of endogenous compounds as well as foreign chemicals and drugs. This thesis describes investigations of P450-catalyzed oxygenation of prostaglandins, linoleic and arachidoniacids. READ MORE

  4. 4. Enzymes in different pathways of bile acid biosynthesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Catrin Furster; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Enzymes catalyzing side chain hydroxylations and dehydrogenation/isomerization in different pathways of bile acid biosynthesis were studied.Pig liver mitochondrial sterol 27-hydroxylase (CYP27A) was found to catalyze 24- and 25-hydroxylation of cholesterol in addition to the known 27-hydroxylation.

  5. 5. Application of Artificial Gel Antibodies for the Detection and Quantification of Proteins in Biological Fluids

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nasim Ghasemzadeh; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical chemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk kemi; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical biochemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk biokemi; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : The molecular-imprinting method has previously been used for the synthesis of artificial gel antibodies, highly selective for various proteins. In present study, we have synthesized artificial gel antibodies against haemoglobin, albumin and different forms of growth hormone with the aim to develop a simple and rapid procedure to measure the concentration of these protein biomarkers in samples of clinical interest.
