  1. 1. Studies of calcium binding proteins 1 and 2 and protein kinase CK2

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Inger Janson; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; calcium binding protein 1; calcium binding protein 2; calcium binding protein 4; erd2receptor; protein kinase CK2; endoplasmic reticulum; Golgi; microsomes; heparin; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi;

    Abstract : The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a major intracellular compartment of eukaryotic cells and is the site of the synthesis and post-translational modification of both secretory and membrane glycoproteins. Upon cell rupture vesicles of several kinds are formed from cell membranes, mainly derived from ER and are called microsomes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Plant Calreticulins -Calcium-binding proteins with many functions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Christensen; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tobacco; plant; calreticulin; isoforms; Arabidopsis; localization; mouse embryonic fibroblasts;

    Abstract : Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) plays an important role in protein synthesis, folding, maturation and transport of newly synthesized proteins, as well as the regulation of cellular Ca2+ homeostasis. A protein that is involved in several of these functions in the ER is calreticulin (CRT), which is a Ca2+-binding chaperone that resides in the lumen of the ER. READ MORE

  3. 3. NMR studies on calcium-induced conformational transitions in calmodulin

    University dissertation from Physical Chemistry 2, Lund University

    Author : Johan Evenäs; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; NMR; conformational exchange; calmodulin; calcium binding; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy was used in order to investigate the relationships between structure, dynamics and calcium binding in the intracellular regulatory protein, calmodulin. Calmodulin consists of two similar domains, each binding two calcium ions with positive cooperativity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Synthesis, Function, and Inactivation of Blood Coagulation Factor V

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Kristoffer Sørensen; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; activated protein C; heparin; calcium binding; R2 haplotype; Blood Coagulation; Factor V; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Blood coagulation factor V (FV) is a 330 kDa plasma glycoprotein. Activated FV (FVa) is a non-enzymatic cofactor to activated Factor X in the activation of prothrombin that occurs during coagulation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Calreticulins- Calcium-Binding Proteins with Functional Diversity and Evolutionary Duality

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Staffan Persson; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant biochemistry; plant; isoforms; evolution; diversity; differential regulation; chaperone; calnexin; calmegin; calcium; Arabidopsis; calreticulin; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : Calreticulin is a multifunctional protein mainly localized in the endoplasmic reticulum in eukaryotic organisms, except yeasts. The protein comprises three distinct regions: the N-terminal N domain, the C-terminal C domain, and the central P domain, reflecting the functional diversity of calreticulin. READ MORE
