  1. 1. Uncoupling Proteins : Regulation by IGF-1 and Neuroprotection during Hyperglycemia in Vitro

    Author : Helena Gustafsson; Anna Forsby; David Tomlinson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; uncoupling protein; oxidative stress; diabetes; neuropathy; SH-SY5Y; Neurobiology; Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Diabetic neuropathy is believed to arise due to oxidative stress following hyperglycemic situations. Uncoupling proteins (UCPs) constitute a subgroup of mitochondrial transporter proteins with putative antioxidant properties. READ MORE

  2. 2. Membrane-bound proteins : Characterization, evolution, and functional analysis

    Author : Misty M. Attwood; Helgi B. Schiöth; Arne Elofsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transmembrane protein; alpha-helical membrane protein; evolution membrane proteins; 3TM; 4TM; 5TM; trispanin; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Alpha-helical transmembrane proteins are important components of many essential cell processes including signal transduction, transport of molecules across membranes, protein and membrane trafficking, and structural and adhesion activities, amongst others. Their involvement in critical networks makes them the focus of interest in investigating disease pathways, as candidate drug targets, and in evolutionary analyses to identify homologous protein families and possible functional activities.

  3. 3. Integration of Aqueous Two-Phase Systems into Recovery Processes for Biomolecules

    Author : Cecilia Kepka; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Proteins; proteins; plasmid DNA; large-scale; protein purification; integration; Expression; aqueous two-phase systems; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : The main scope of this thesis has been to study and develop new purification methods and also to further develop existing methods for purification to enhance their efficacy. Important parameters in the development of the methods are that they should be suitable for scale-up and possible to be integrated into recovery processes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring the functionality of coconut proteins

    Author : Borges Chambale; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Coconut; coconut milk; extraction; proteins; emulsions; functional properties; denaturation; gels; yield stress; glass structure;

    Abstract : At present, coconut proteins are discarded as a waste product by the coconut oil industry. If the range of applications of coconut proteins is to be expanded, their potential functionalities should be investigated. Emulsions and gels are of the greatest interest in food industry. READ MORE
