  1. 1. Generation and evolution of human antibody repertoires

    University dissertation from Department of Immunotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Helena Persson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; specificity; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; phage display; IgE; hapten; grass pollen allergen; diversity; antibody repertoire; antibody library; antibody evolution; affinity maturation; allergy;

    Abstract : This thesis, which is based on five original papers, covers different aspects of antibody specificity and diversity, with the overall goal to understand the makeup of antibody repertoires and their functionality as they occur in vivo or as they are developed in the laboratory. Besides their importance in the adaptive immune response, antibodies have emerged as an invaluable tool in applications ranging from basic research to disease diagnostics and therapy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Systems enabling antibody-mediated proteomics research

    Abstract : Specific antibodies are invaluable tools for proteomics research. The availability of thoroughly validated antibodies will help to improve our understanding of protein expression, localization and function; fundamental processes and features of all living organisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Selection of antigens for antibody-based proteomics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lisa Berglund; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; epitope; antigen; antibody; affinity; protein; proteome; proteomics; bioinformatics; prediction; primer design; sequence similarity; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik;

    Abstract : The human genome is predicted to contain ~20,500 protein-coding genes. The encoded proteins are the key players in the body, but the functions and localizations of most proteins are still unknown. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methods for Generation and Characterization of Monospecific Antibodies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Johan Rockberg; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; antibody; epitope mapping; HER2; human protein atlas; immunogenicity; proteomics; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Recent advances in biotechnology have generated possibilities to investigate and measure parts of life previously left for believers to explain. Utilizing the same book of recipes, the genome, our cells produce selections of proteins at a time and thereby niche into a multitude of specialized cell types, tissues and organs comprising our body.
