  1. 1. Novel binding specificities engineered into the scaffold of a carbohydrate binding module

    University dissertation from Department of Immunotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Lavinia Cicortas Gunnarsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; carbohydrate binding module; binding specificity; selection; combinatorial library; scaffold; protein engineering;

    Abstract : The growing field of biotechnology is in constant need of proteins that can function as recognition tools for separational, analytical and therapeutic purposes. Different molecular engineering approaches are applied on natural proteins in order to create variants with desired properties. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sialic acid-dependent binding specificities of Helicobacter pylori and influenza virus. Importance of different parts of the binding sequences

    University dissertation from Department of Immunotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Petra Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sialic acid; carbohydrates; Helicobacter pylori; influenza virus; binding specificities; glycosphingolipids;

    Abstract : Many viruses and bacteria adhere to host cell glycoconjugates in a specific manner, utilizing selected carbohydrate sequences. The aim of this work was to investigate at a molecular level the interactions of two important human pathogens, influenza virus and Helicobacter pylori, with sialylated carbohydrate structures.

  3. 3. Determination of transcription factor binding specificities

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Arttu Jolma; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The term "genetic code" refers to the way in which the information encoded in nucleic acids is converted into the amino-acid sequence of proteins. There is however also a second genetic code, one that is used by the cells to read the blueprints of the entire organism. READ MORE
