  1. 1. Evolution of Interactions Involving Intrinsically Disordered Proteins

    Author : Emma Åberg; Per Jemth; Madan Babu; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; intrinsically disordered proteins; protein evolution; phylogenetics; ancestral sequence reconstruction; biophysical characterization; NCBD; CID; p53; MDM2; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the evolution of intrinsically disordered proteins and their interaction partners. The work presented is a combination of phylogenetic analysis, ancestral reconstruction and biophysical characterization in order to examine the evolutionary trajectory of protein-protein interactions involving disorder.

  2. 2. Development and Application of Molecular Modeling Methods for Structure-Based Drug Discovery

    Author : Axel Rudling; Jens Carlsson; Phillip Biggin; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Molecular modeling is increasingly being integrated into the drug discovery process. Although computational methods are already an essential part of the process today, these techniques have vast potential to evolve and refine drug design in the future. READ MORE

  3. 3. Calculations of Reaction Mechanisms and Entropic Effects in Enzyme Catalysis

    Author : Masoud Kazemi; Johan Åqvist; Per E. M. Siegbahn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Enzyme catalysis; Entropy; Cytidine deamination; Ribosome; Peptidyl-tRNA hydrolysis; Peptide bond formation; Empirical valence bond method; Density functional theory; Biology with specialization in Structural Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot strukturbiologi; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biotechnology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär bioteknik;

    Abstract : Ground state destabilization is a hypothesis to explain enzyme catalysis. The most popular interpretation of it is the entropic effect, which states that enzymes accelerate biochemical reactions by bringing the reactants to a favorable position and orientation and the entropy cost of this is compensated by enthalpy of binding.

  4. 4. Copy Number Analysis of Cancer

    Author : Markus Mayrhofer; Anders Isaksson; Simon Tavaré; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chromosomes; oncology; bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Bioinformatics; Oncology; Onkologi; Clinical Genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : By accurately describing cancer genomes, we may link genomic mutations to phenotypic effects and eventually treat cancer patients based on the molecular cause of their disease, rather than generalizing treatment based on cell morphology or tissue of origin.Alteration of DNA copy number is a driving mutational process in the formation and progression of cancer.

  5. 5. Free energy calculations of G protein-coupled receptor modulation : New methods and applications

    Author : Willem Jespers; Hugo Gutiérrez-de-Terán; Johan Åqvist; Jonathan Essex; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are membrane proteins that transduce the signals of extracellular ligands, such as hormones, neurotransmitters and metabolites, through an intracellular response via G proteins. They are abundant in human physiology and approximately 34% of the marketed drugs target a GPCR. READ MORE
