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

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Staffan Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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

  2. 2. Folding and retention of rotavirus glycoproteins in the endoplasmic reticulum

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Ali Mirazimi; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ER; rotavirus; VP7; NSP4; oligosaccharide processing; N-linked glycosylation; protein disulfide isomerase; calnexin; ATP; ER retention;

    Abstract : The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a membrane bound organelle composed of a network of cisternae stretching throughout the cytoplasm. Functionally, the ER performs many essential processes, such as glycosylation, and biosynthesis of lipids; it provides a redox potential condition for forming S-S linkages, and a quality control system, and functions as an intracellular calcium store.

  3. 3. Storage organelles that are distinct from the classical granules in human neutrophils

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Sara Pellmé; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neutrophil; HL-60 cells; cytoplasts; granules; CXCL-8; ER; phagocytosis; HLA-I; subcellular fractionation; immunogold;

    Abstract : The human neutrophil is a crucial participant in acute inflammation. Appropriate immune response is dependent on rapid direction of phagocytic cells through the tissue, towards the inflammatory focus. Such movement is governed by chemoattractants, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. The quality control of MHC class I antigen presentation

    University dissertation from Kajsa Paulsson, Section for Tumor immunology, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Lund University, BMC I-12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Kajsa M Paulsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chaperone; assembly; COPI; antigenic peptide; TAP; MHC; tapasin; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Ett antal olika behandlingsformer finns att tillgå vid angrepp av mikroorgansimer, tex antibiotika, samt vid uppkomsten av tumörer, tex strålbehandling och cellgifter. Ett alternativ till dessa traditionella behandlingssätt är att hjälpa kroppens immunförsvar att starta en specifik immunreaktion riktad mot de infekterade cellerna eller mot tumörcellerna. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterisation of the novel endoplasmic reticulum chaperone ERDJ5

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Paula Cunnea; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endoplasmic reticulum; chaperone; unfolded protein response; protein folding; disease;

    Abstract : Communication between cells depends to a large extent on interactions between secreted proteins and membrane receptors. Therefore their production and release must be strictly regulated. Proteins that are destined for the extracellular space assemble and fold in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). READ MORE
