  1. 1. Revealing Secrets of Synaptic Protein Interactions A Biosensor based Strategy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Seeger; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surface plasmon resonance; biosensor; AMPA receptor; GABAA receptor; ligand-gated ion channel; A-kinase anchoring protein; caldendrin; calmodulin; HIV; fragment based drug discovery; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Protein interactions are the basis of synaptic function, and studying these interactions on a molecular level is crucial for understanding basic brain function, as well as mechanisms underlying neurological disorders. In this thesis, kinetic and mechanistic characterization of synaptic protein interactions was performed by using surface plasmon resonance biosensor technology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Functions of REP27 and the low molecular weight proteins PsbX and PsbW in repair and assembly of photosystem II

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jose Gines Garcia Cerdan; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : Photosynthesis; photosystem II reaction center; PSII-LHCII supercomplex; antisense plant; T-DNA knockout plant; auxiliary protein; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract :   Oxygenic photosynthesis is the major producer of both oxygen and organic compounds on earth and takes place in plants, green algae and cyanobacteria. The thylakoid membranes are the site of the photosynthetic light reactions that involve the concerted action of four major protein complexes known as photosystem II (PSII), cytochrome b6f complex, ATP synthase and photosystem I (PSI).

  3. 3. Transcriptional activation by Sp1 and the adenovirus E1A transactivator protein

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anne-Christine Ström; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical Virology; medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : Transcription is a key step in the regulation of gene expression. Activation of transcriptionrequires that the RNA polymerase receive both, regulatory signals from transcription factors,and initiate transcription at the correct location in the genome, at the promoter. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of auxiliary membrane proteins in the chloroplast of Arabidopsis thaliana

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lotta von Sydow; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis; chaperone; chloroplast; Cytochrome b559; FtsH; membrane proteins; photosynthesis; Photosystem II; protease; PsbY.; Arabidopsis; chaperone; Cytochrome b559; fotosyntes; fotosystem II; FtsH; kloroplast; membranprotein; proteas; PsbY.; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : In nature, sessile plants have to adapt to their environment and to the never ending changes they are exposed to. They do so mainly by proteomic and metabolomic changes. In all cells, there are complex networks of auxiliary proteins that are responsible for quality control of all the cell's proteins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulatory proteolysis of higher plant thylakoid membranes : the significance of protein degradation in light acclimation of the photosynthetic apparatus

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Marika Lindahl; Stockholms universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Although the acclimation of plants to light condition has been known and extensively described for many years the underlying mechanisms have remained largely unsolved. In this thesis I present new experimental data and a model for the mechanism behind acclimation of mature higher plants to increased light intensities. READ MORE
