    Abstract : Varje cell har ett membran som skapar en gräns mot omvärlden och skyddarcellen. Men cellen måste alltjämt utbyta viktiga molekyler med omvärlden för attöverleva. Därför finns specialiserade proteiner, som sitter i membranen och utgörportar i denna barriär. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring Unorthodox Aquaporins : Characterization of NbXIPs & AtNIPs

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Division of Biochemistry and Structural Biology

    Author : Henry Ampah-Korsah; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]

    Abstract : Popular science summaryWater is very important for life. In order to survive every organism needs to control the amount of water in its cells. One of the main ways the cell regulates its water content is through aquaporins. Aquaporins are membrane proteins that allow water and/or small neutral molecules to enter or exit the cell. READ MORE

  3. 3. Transthyretin and the transthyretin-related protein: A structural study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå centrum för molekylär patogenes (UCMP) (Teknisk-naturvetenskaplig fakultet)

    Author : Erik Lundberg; Umeå universitet.; [2006]

    Abstract : Transthyretin (TTR) is one of several proteins involved in amyloid disease in humans. Unknown conformational changes of the native state of TTR result in aggregation of TTR molecules into amyloid fibrils, which accumulate in extracellular tissues. This may result in different clinical symptoms, e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural Studies of Glutamine Synthetases – Towards the Development of Novel Antitubercular Agents

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Wojciech W. Krajewski; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Structural biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Strukturbiologi;

    Abstract : Glutamine synthetase (GS) plays an important role in nitrogen metabolism, where it catalyzes the ATP-dependent condensation of glutamate and ammonia to yield glutamine. Recent studies showed the importance of M. tuberculosis GS (MtGS) for growth and survival of the bacterium, and demonstrated its potential as a drug target. READ MORE
