  1. 1. Protein engineering to explore and improve affinity ligands

    Author : Martin Linhult; KTH; []
    Keywords : binding; affinity; human serum albumin HSA ; albumin-binding domain ABD ; affinity chromatography; deamidation; protein A; stabilization; Z-domain; capacity; protein G; cleaning-in-place CIP ; protein engineering; C2 receptor;

    Abstract : In order to produce predictable and robust systems forprotein purification and detection, well characterized, small,folded domains descending from bacterial receptors have beenused. These bacterial receptors, staphylococcal protein A (SPA)and streptococcal protein G (SPG), possess high affinity to IgGand / or HSA. READ MORE

  2. 2. Affibody ligands in immunotechnology applications

    Author : Jenny Rönnmark; KTH; []
    Keywords : phage display; combinatorial; affinity; IgA ligand; immunohistochemistry; affibody-fusions;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development and use ofnon-immunoglobulin affinity proteins denoted affibodies asalternatives to antibodies in different immunotechnologyapplications. A 58 aa IgG Fc binding three-helix bundle domainZ, derived from staphylococcal protein A has been used asframework for library constructions, in which the face of themolecule involved in the native binding activity has beenengineered by combinatorial protein engineering.

  3. 3. Deciphering Binding Patterns of Therapeutic Antibodies with Immune Cells : From Method Development to Application

    Author : Sina Bondza; Jos Buijs; Marika Nestor; Mark Cragg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; affinity; binding kinetics; CD20; cell-based assay; immunology; receptor-ligand interaction; therapeutic antibody; Immunologi; Immunology; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Reversible binding, for example between signaling molecules and receptors on the cell surface, is one of the main means to communicate information in cellular systems. Knowledge about how molecules interact is crucial for both understanding biological function and for therapeutic intervention. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computational prediction of receptor-ligand binding affinity in drug discovery

    Author : John Marelius; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; computer-aided ligand design; molecular dynamics simulation; linear interaction energy; free energy perturbation; scoring function; dihydrofolate reductase; thrombin; serine proteases; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biotechnology; molekylär bioteknik avd f jonfysik ;

    Abstract : The evaluation of inhibition constants or, more generally, receptor-ligand binding affinities is a crucial part of the drug discovery process. Chemical synthesis and affinity screening is only affordable for a limited number of compounds. This makes computational methods to predict binding affinities of candidate ligands highly desirable.

  5. 5. Development of low affinity techniques for applications in clinical chemistry

    Author : Lisa Leickt; Avdelningen för klinisk kemi och farmakologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chromatography performance; acute myocardial infarction; antibodies; creatine kinase MB isoforms; lectins; low affinity interactions; weak affinity chromatography; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : An increase in the plasma level of creatine kinase MB (CKMB) has long been used to indicate acute myocardial infarction (AMI). For optimal treatment an early diagnosis is important. An increase in the ratio between the two isoforms of CKMB is seen much earlier than an increase in the total level of CKMB. READ MORE
