  1. 1. Equine glutathione transferase A3-3 : an efficient steroid isomerase

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Deprtment of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Helena Lindström; Bengt Mannervik; Ann-Kristin Östlund Farrants; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Equine; glutatione transferase; steroidogenesis; steroid isomerase; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : Glutathione transferases (GSTs) comprise a superfamily of enzymes prominently involved in detoxication by making toxic electrophiles more polar and therefore more easily excretable. However some GSTs have developed alternative functions. READ MORE

    Abstract : The enzymes CYP27A1 and CYP7B1 are widely expressed in various human tissues and perform catalytic reactions in cholesterol homeostasis and endocrine signaling.We have investigated the metabolism of a synthetic oxysterol. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Pure and Applied Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Margareta Krook; [1998]
    Keywords : 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. Immunomodulatory properties of steroid hormones

    University dissertation from Göteborg
