  1. 1. Prediction of zinc-binding sites in proteins and efficient protein structure description and comparison

    Author : Nanjiang Shu; Sven Hovmöller; Elisabeth Sauer-Eriksson; Alexander Luybartsev; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; zinc-binding; shape strings; protein structures; secondary structures; machine learning; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; biokemi; Biochemistry; Structural Biology; strukturbiologi; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : A large number of proteins require certain metals to stabilize their structures or to function properly. About one third of all proteins in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) contain metals and it is estimated that approximately the same proportion of all proteins are metalloproteins. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural characterisation of mitochondrial macromolecular complexes using cryo-EM : Mitoribosome biogenesis and respiratory chain supercomplex

    Author : Sorbhi Rathore; Martin Ott; Daniel Wilson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mitochondria; mitoribosome biogenesis; mitoribosome assembly factors; yeast respiratory supercomplexes; single particle electron cryo-microscopy; cryo-EM sample preparation; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Mitochondria, popularly known as powerhouse of the cell, contain specialised mitoribosomes that synthesise essential membrane proteins. These essential proteins are required to form enzyme complexes, which carry out the process of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Ribosomal RNA Modification Enzymes : Structural and functional studies of two methyltransferases for 23S rRNA modification in Escherichia coli

    Author : Avinash S. Punekar; Maria Selmer; Martino Bolognesi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; ribosome biogenesis; ribosome assembly; ribosomal RNA; peptidyltransferase center; domain V; post-transcriptional modification; methyltransferases; S-adenosyl-methionine; RlmM; Cm2498; RlmJ; m6A2030; X-ray crystallography; substrate recognition; substrate specificity; catalytic mechanism; evolution; Biology with specialization in Structural Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot strukturbiologi; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Escherichia coli ribosomal RNA (rRNA) is post-transcriptionally modified by site-specific enzymes. The role of most modifications is not known and little is known about how these enzymes recognize their target substrates. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computational Analysis of Molecular Recognition Involving the Ribosome and a Voltage Gated K+ Channel

    Author : Martin Andér; Johan Åqvist; Lennart Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; computer simulations; molecular dynamics; ligand binding; binding free energy; linear interaction energy; codon recognition; translation termination; release factor; voltage gated potassium ion channel; Kv1.5; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Over the last few decades, computer simulation techniques have been established as an essential tool for understanding biochemical processes. This thesis deals mainly with the application of free energy calculations to ribosomal complexes and a cardiac ion channel. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural Studies on PP2A and Methods in Protein Production

    Author : Auður Magnúsdóttir; Pär Nordlund; Herman Van Tilbeurgh; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PP2A; PTPA; B56γ; Protein Production; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : PP2A is a major phosphatase in the cell that participates in multiple cell signaling pathways. It is a heterotrimer of a core dimer and variable regulatory subunits. Details of its structure, function and regulation are slowly emerging. Here, the structure of two regulators of PP2A are de-scribed; PTPA and B56γ. READ MORE
