  2. 2. Engineering of Affibody molecules for Radionuclide Molecular Imaging and Intracellular Targeting

    Author : Camilla Hofström; Torbjörn Gräslund; Serge Muyldermans; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Affibody molecules; affinity proteins; radionuclide molecular imaging; intracellular targeting; EGFR; HER2; IGF-1R; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Affibody molecules are small (7 kDa) affinity proteins of non-immunoglobulin origin that have been generated to specifically interact with a large number of clinically important molecular targets.In this thesis, Affibody molecules have been employed as tracers for radionuclide molecular imaging of HER2- and IGF-1R-expressing tumors, paper I-IV, and for surface knock-down of EGFR, paper V.

  3. 3. Intracellular systems for characterization and engineering of proteases and their substrates

    Author : George Kostallas; Stefan Ståhl; Patrik Samuelson; Matthew DeLisa; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; proteases; flow cytometry; GFP; CAT; protein engineering; ssrA; ClpXP; tobacco etch virus; TEV; site-specific; high-throughput; selection; proteolysis; libraries; Bioengineering; Bioteknik; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Over the years, the view on proteases as relatively non-specific protein degradation enzymes, mainly involved in food digestion and intracellular protein turnover, has shifted and they are now recognized as key regulators of many biological processes that determine the fate of a cell. Besides their biological role, proteases have emerged as important tools in various biotechnical, industrial and medical applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the Design of Affibody Molecules for Radiolabeling and In Vivo Molecular Imaging

    Author : Daniel Rosik; Amelie Eriksson Karlström; Christian Heinis; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Affibody molecule; AC DC; radionuclide molecular imaging; HER2; SPECT; PET; biodistribution; peptide synthesis; radiolabeling; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Affibody molecules have lately shown great potential as tools for in vivo molecular imaging. These small, 3-helical bundles, with their highly stable protein scaffold, are well suited for the often harsh conditions of radiolabeling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Theoretical studies on photophysics and photochemistry of DNA

    Author : Yuejie Ai; Yi Luo; Lluís Blancafort; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantum chemistry; Kvantkemi; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Theoretical studies on biological systems like nucleic acid and protein have been widely developed in the past 50 years and will continue to be a topic of interest in forefronts of natural science. In addition to experimental science, computational modeling can give useful information and help us to understand biochemical issues at molecular, atomic and even electronic levels. READ MORE
