  1. 1. 2nd and 3rd generation electrodes for biosensors and biofuel cells

    Author : MNadeem Zafar; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; WrbA; pyranose dehydrogenase; cellobiose dehydrogenase; glucose dehydrogenase; direct electron transfer; Os-polymers; mediated electron transfer; single-walled carbon nanotubes; amperometric biosensor; biofuel cell; screen-printed electrodes; flow injection analysis; cascade reaction; bioanode;

    Abstract : The catalytic and electrochemical properties of tryptophan repressor-binding protein (WrbA), pyranose dehydrogenase (PDH), cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) and glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) on carbon electrodes were investigated using cyclic voltammetry and flow injection amperometry to construct biosensors and biofuel cell (BFC) anodes. WrbA has a catalytic FMN-containing domain whereas both PDH and GDH have a catalytic FAD-containing domains. READ MORE

  2. 2. Persistent infection by Yersinia pseudotuberculosis

    Author : Kemal Avican; Maria Fällman; Wyndham W. Lathem; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Persistent infection; RNA-seq; PMNs; Yersinia; Transcriptome; wrba; fnr; rovA; arcA; rfaH; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Enteropathogenic Yersinia species can infect many mammalian organs such as the small intestine, cecum, Peyer’s patches, liver, spleen, and lung and cause diseases that resemble a typhoid-like syndrome, as seen for other enteropathogens. We found that sublethal infection doses of Y. READ MORE

  3. 3. Labeling, tagging and charging - Long standing issues in bioenergetics addressed with novel techniques

    Author : Tobias Gustavsson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; WrbA; site specific labeling; fusion proteins; spectro electrochemistry; succinate quinone reductase; NADH quinone oxidoredictase; cytochromes; Respiratory chain;

    Abstract : Understanding the molecular details of bioenergetic processes is fundamentally important. Defects in the mitochondrial energy metabolism can lead to untimely apoptosis and thus cause serious degenerative human diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of Second and Third Generation Bioelectronics

    Author : Federico Tasca; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flow injection analysis; amperometric biosensor; mediated electron transfer; direct electron transfer; tryptophan repressor-binding protein; diaphorase; pyranose oxidase; cellobiose dehydrogenase; pyranose dehydrogenase; biofuel cell; spectroelectrochemistry; single wall carbon nanotubes; bioelectronics.;

    Abstract : The field of research dealing with the integration of biomolecules with electronic elements to form functional devices is called ‘‘bioelectronics’’. Bioelectronics based on mediated electron transfer (MET) between the biological element and the electrodes are designated as “second generation” while the one based on direct electron transfer (DET) is specified as “third generation”.

  5. 5. Small Molecules as Tools in Biological Chemistry : Effects of Synthetic and Natural Products on the Type III Secretion System

    Author : Caroline E. Zetterström; Mikael Elofsson; Samuel I. Miller; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Type III secretion; salicylidene acylhydrazide; virulence-blocker; virulence; inhibitor; target identification; neohopeaphenol A; Yersinia pseudotuberculosis; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Escherichia coli; biologisk kemi; biological chemistry;

    Abstract : The increasing use of antibiotics has led to a huge problem for society, as some bacteria have developed resistance towards many of the antibiotics currently available. To help find solutions to this problem we studied small molecules that inhibit bacterial virulence, the ability to cause disease. READ MORE
