  1. 1. Computational infrared spectroscopy : Calculation of the amide I absorption of proteins

    Author : Cesare Michele Baronio; Andreas Barth; Sander Woutersen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; infrared spectroscopy; FTIR; simulation; calculation; amide I; transition dipole coupling; F matrix; protein; amyloid β; oligomers; β-helix; Biophysics; biofysik;

    Abstract : Infrared spectroscopy is an important technique that allows to retrieve structural information from the analysis of absorption spectra. The main application of infrared spectroscopy within life science is the study of the amide I band, which is correlated with protein backbone conformation and, consequently, with the secondary structure of proteins.

  2. 2. Group (IV) Metal-Catalyzed Direct Amidation : Synthesis and Mechanistic Considerations

    Author : Helena Lundberg; Adolfsson Hans; Tom Sheppard; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; catalysis; amide; carboxylic acid; amino acid; titanium; zirconium; hafnium; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : The amide unit constitutes the backbone of proteins, and it is present in a large number of pharmaceutically active molecules, polymeric materials such as nylon and Kevlar, as well as in food additives like aspartame. Amides are produced in enormous amounts every year, thus, environmentally friendly and selective methods for their formation are of great importance. READ MORE

  3. 3. The choreography of protein vibrations : Improved methods of observing and simulating the infrared absorption of proteins

  5. 5. Fatty acid amide hydrolase - A target for anti-inflammatory therapies?

    Author : Sandra Holt; Christopher J Fowler; Anders Bucht; Gunnar Tiger; Ruth A Ross; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacology; FAAH; anandamide; endocannabinoid; pH; inflammation; NSAID; Farmakologi; Pharmacological research; Farmakologisk forskning; medicinsk farmakologi; Medical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Anti-inflammatory drugs are a widely used class of therapeutic agents, but the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) is hampered by their gastrointestinal side-effects. Recent reports that cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors may cause cardiovascular events underline the importance of identifying new therapeutic strategies for the treatment of inflammation. READ MORE
