  1. 11. Recombinant subunit vaccines : protein immunogens

    Author : Sissela Liljeqvist; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Recombinant techniques provide valuable tools for thedevelopment of modern subunit vaccines. In this thesisdifferent systems for production of recombinant subunitvaccines are presented. The strategies investigated includeprotein immunogens, live bacterial vectors and nucleicacids. READ MORE

  2. 12. The birth and growth of the protein folding nucleus : Studies of protein folding focused on critical contacts, topology and ionic interactions

    Author : Linda Hedberg; Mikael Oliveberg; Christopher Johnson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein folding; protein stability; two-state folding; chevron plot; transition-state movements; Hammond behaviour; topology; electrostatic interactions; pH dependence; mass-action; protein engineering; pKa; Biochemistry; Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Proteins are among the most complex molecules in the cell and they play a major role in life itself. The complexity is not restricted to just structure and function, but also embraces the protein folding reaction. READ MORE

  3. 13. Exploring small heat shock protein chaperones by crosslinking mass spectrometry

    Author : Wietske Lambert; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cross-linking; mass spectrometry; protein-protein interactions; Hsp21; BS3; DTSSP; MALDI-TOF TOF; client protein; substrate; aggregation; unfolded protein; chaperone; Small heat shock protein; crosslinking;

    Abstract : Together with other molecular chaperones, small heat shock proteins are key components of the protein quality control system, which is comprised of several hundred proteins and acts to maintain proteome homeostasis in the cell. Small heat shock proteins bind unfolding proteins at an early stage, to prevent these from further unfolding and aggregating. READ MORE

  4. 14. Folding of the Ribosomal protein S6 : The role of sequence connectivity, overlapping foldons, and parallel pathways

    Author : Ellinor Haglund; Mikael Oliveberg; Neil Ferguson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein folding; protein stability; two-state folding; S6; chevron plot; transition state; parallell pathways; foldon; two-channel landscape; protein engineering; H D-exchange; Biochemistry; Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : To investigate how protein folding is affected by sequence connectivity five topological variants of the ribosomal protein S6 were constructed through circular permutation.  In these constructs, the chain connectivity (i.e. the order of secondary-structure elements) is changed without changing the native-state topology.

  5. 15. Human Aquaporins: Production, Characterization and Interactions

    Author : Jennie Sjöhamn; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : aquaporins; membrane protein; protein production; protein characterization; protein:protein interactions; structural biochemistry;

    Abstract : Membrane proteins are essential components of the cell and responsible for the communication with the outside environment and transport of molecules across the membrane. Water transport is facilitated by aquaporins, which are water selective transmembrane pores that serve to maintain cell homeostasis. READ MORE
