    Abstract : Systemic amyloidoses are a group of lethal diseases where proteins aggregate into fibrillar structures, called amyloid fibrils, that deposits throughout the body. Transthyretin (TTR) causes one type of amyloidosis, in which the aggregates mainly infiltrate nervous and cardiac tissue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring the Role of the PDZ Domain in a Supramodule

    Author : Louise Laursen; Per Jemth; Per Hammarström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PSD-95; PSG; PDZ3; supramodule; liquid liquid phase separation; allostery; folding; binding; evolution; post synaptic density; SynGap; CRIPT; AGRB1; Medical Biochemistry; Medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry; Medicinsk biokemi;

    Abstract : The postsynaptic density (PSD) is a large, dense and membraneless compartment of proteins associated below the postsynaptic membrane bilayer, and which constantly undergoes morphological alteration in response to synaptic activity. Formation of PSD is associated with liquid-liquid phase separation of scaffold proteins in complex with other PSD proteins. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human intraepithelial lymphocytes : a comparative study of phenotype, morphology, and functional properties of intraepithelial lymphocytes in gut and oral mucosa

    Author : Carina Lundqvist; Marie-Louise Hammarström; Sten Hammarström; Per Brandtzaeg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human intraepithelial lymphocytes; alimentary tract; intestinal epithelium; gut luminal antigens; gingiva; γδ T cells; immunoelectron microscopy; cytokine mRNA; RT-PCR; extrathymic T cell maturation; RAG-1; periodontitis; mucosal immune system; CD4-CD8- αβ T cells; CD8 γδ T cells;

    Abstract : Human intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL) constitute a unique cell population situated in the first line of defense of the alimentary tract. Here they are continuously exposed to a massive antigenic load of high complexity. However, different conditions prevail along the alimentary tract. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biophysical Studies of Protein Folding, Aggregation and Interactions with Molecular Chaperones

    Author : Per Hammarström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The information for a protein to fold correctly into a well defined three-dimensional functional structure is embedded in the primary sequence. Much effort has been devoted to characterize the nature of the unfolded state, since this state represents the starting point of the folding reaction. READ MORE

  5. 5. Protein production and purification in structural genomics

    Author : Martin Hammarström; Per-Åke Nygren; Torleif Härd; Helena Berglund; Herman van Tilbeurgh; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Recombinational cloning; Escherichia coli; gene expression; fusion proteins; solubility; circular dichroism; nuclear magnetic resonance; Structural biochemistry; Strukturbiokemi;

    Abstract : The number of gene products available for structural and functional study is increasing at an unprecedented rate as a result of the successful whole genome sequencing projects. Systematic structure determination of proteins on a genomic scale, called structural genomics, can significantly contribute to the field of protein science and to functional annotation of newly identified genes.
