  1. 1. Synchrotron radiation studies of gas phase molecules : from hydrogen to DNA sugars

    Author : Gemma Vall-llosera; Elisabeth Rachlew; Stacey Sorensen; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; KTH thesis; synchrotron radiation; gas phase; bio molecules; Atomic and molecular physics; Atom- och molekylfysik;

    Abstract : This thesis summarises experimental results on the molecular spectroscopy of gas phase molecules excited by synchrotron radiation in the VUV and soft X-ray regions. We have used three different detection techniques, photon induced fluorescence spectroscopy, photoionisation mass spectroscopy and near edge X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy to study molecular deuterium, hydrogen sulphide, ammonia, methanol, pyridine, pyridazine, pyrimidine, pyrazine, s-triazine, and 2-deoxy-D-ribose, the last one also known as the DNA sugar.

  2. 2. Generation and characterization of Affibody molecules targeting HER3

    Author : Magdalena Malm; Stefan Ståhl; Jennifer Cochran; KTH; []
    Keywords : Affibody molecules; epidermal growth factor receptors; HER3; ErbB3; combinatorial protein engineering; combinatorial library; staphylococcal surface display;

    Abstract : In the field of oncology, the ability to target specific tumor cells using highly selective targeting molecules is an attractive and emerging concept. In this context, the epidermal growth factor receptor HER3 has proven central to the biology behind many different human cancers and inhibition of the signaling mediated by this receptor could provide antitumoral effects.

  4. 4. Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Lignin into Bio-Oil

    Author : Huyen Nguyen Lyckeskog; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydrothermal conversion; aging; bio-oil; stability; subcritical water; lignin;

    Abstract : Lignin, one of the three main components of lignocellulosic biomass, is the second most abundant organic polymer found on Earth. Nowadays, most of the lignin (almost 99%) produced in the Kraft pulping process is used as internal fuel. READ MORE

  5. 5. Affibody molecules for proteomic and therapeutic applications

    Author : Caroline Grönwall; Stefan Ståhl; Lena Jendeberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Affibody; protein engineering; phage display; amyloid beta peptide; transferrin; CD25; IL-2 receptor; proteomics; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes generation and characterization of Affibody molecules with future applications in proteomics research, protein structure determinations, therapeutic treatment of disease and medical imaging for in vivo diagnostics. Affibody molecules are engineered affinity proteins developed by combinatorial protein engineering from the 58-residue protein A-derived Z domain scaffold. READ MORE
