  1. 1. Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms : Aspects of tumour characteristics, receptor recycling and peptide mass

    Author : Ulrika Jahn; Anders Sundin; Mark Lubberink; Ulrike Garske-Román; Mona-Elisabeth Rootwelt-Revheim; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuroendocrine tumors; Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy PRRT ; Peptide; Small-Intestinal; Pancreatic; Dosimetry; Somatostatin receptor;

    Abstract : Neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN) can arise in any part of the body, but most commonly in the lungs, bronchi, and the gastrointestinal tract including the pancreas. They combine neuroendocrine and tissue-of-origin-specific characteristics; explaining different symptoms depending on the organ of origin. READ MORE

  2. 2. Galanin receptor ligands

    Author : Johan Runesson; Ülo Langel; Lena Mäler; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : Galanin; GALP; GPCR; Agonist; GalR; Chimeric peptide; Inositol phosphate production; Receptor specificity; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : In the nervous system galanin primarily displays a modulatory role. The galaninergic system consists of a number of bioactive peptides with a highly plastic expression pattern and three different receptors. The lack of receptor subtype selective ligands and antibodies have severely hampered the charac-terization of this system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design, Synthesis and Characterization of Small Molecule Inhibitors and Small Molecule : Peptide Conjugates as Protein Actors

    Author : Jonas Nilsson; Lars Baltzer; Ingemar Kvarnström; Thomas Olsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Synthetic receptor; Peptide inhibitor conjugate; Peptide protein surface interactions; General Lead Discovery Library; Combinatorial Chemistry; Solid Phase Chemistry; Targeted Library; Thrombin inhibitor; Fluorescence; Surface Plasmon Resonance; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes different aspects of protein interactions. Initially the function of peptides and their conjugates with small molecule inhibitors on the surface of Human Carbonic Anhydrase isoenzyme II (HCAII) is evaluated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Combinatorial Methodology. Screening for affinity specific ligands to biological and artificial receptors

    Author : Margareta Krook; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; peptide library; combinatorial; screening; phage display; affinity; DNA-interaction; chymotrypsin; peptide inhibitor; antibody; IgG; Fc; molecular imprinting; steroid; receptor; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Combinatorial screening methodology has been employed to select new affinity specific ligands to bilogical and artificial receptors. The screening methodology, in particular screening of combinatorial phage display peptide libraries against target molecules differing in function and shape, is focused upon. READ MORE

  5. 5. Activation of professional phagocytes with emphasis on the formyl peptide receptor family

    Author : Jennie Karlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : phagocyte; G-protein coupled receptor; chemoattractant; formyl peptide receptor; reactive oxygen species; calcium;

    Abstract : Phagocytic cells such as neutrophil granulocytes and monocytes are an essential part of our innate immune system and play an important role in the battle against pathogens. G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and more specifically chemoattractant receptors are a vital part in guiding phagocytes towards the site of infection. READ MORE
