  1. 1. Conformational properties of transmembrane polypeptide segments in the ER membrane

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : IngMarie Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glycosylation; membrane protein; transmembrane helix; proline; charged residues;

    Abstract : We have developed a new experimental approach where the active site of oligosaccharyl transferase is used as a point of reference against which the position of a transmembrane segment in the membrane can be measured. This so-called glycosylation mapping technique allows any transmembrane segment to be positioned relative to a known reference transmembrane helix with known position in the membrane. READ MORE

  2. 2. Single-chain antibody construction and functional mapping of the monoclonal antibody TS1 Its interaction with the antigen and the anti-idiotype

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Patrik Holm; Birgitta Sundström; Per-Åke Nygren; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Chemistry; MEDICIN Kemi; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : The aims of this study are to synthesize and produce a single-chain antibody (scFv) of the anti-cytokeratin 8 monoclonal IgG antibody TS1 and to functionally map amino acid residues important for the interaction with its antigen and the anti-idiotypic antibody TS1. The TS1 antibody has been shown to be effective in binding cytokeratin 8 (CK8) expressed in tumors in vivo and is proposed to be useful in immunotargeting and/or immunotherapy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring molecular interactions between polypeptide conjugates and protein targets Manipulating affinity by chemical modifications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Aleksandra Balliu; Lars Baltzer; Oliver Seitz; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polypeptide conjugates; protein targets; molecular recognition; affinity enhancement; conjugation;

    Abstract : In this thesis molecular interactions between polypeptide conjugates and protein targets were investigated. Polypeptides were derivatized with small organic molecules, peptides and oligonucleotides. New strategies were developed with the aim to increase affinities for proteins of biological interest.

  4. 4. Single-chain antibody construction and functional mapping of the monoclonal antibody TS1 : Its interaction with the antigen and the anti-idiotype

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad university studies

    Author : Patrik Holm; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicin; Biomedical Science; Biomedical Laboratory Science; Biomedicinsk laboratorievetenskap;

    Abstract : Antibodies are proteins with the ability to bind antigens rapidly and specifically. Antibodies consist of several different parts. The complementary determining regions (CDR) are the parts that recognize the antigen and are the focus of this study. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anisotropic Protein Interactions in Salt Solutions and at Interfaces: Coarse Grained Modeling

    University dissertation from Theoretical Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Anil Kurut Sabanoglu; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anisotropic interactions; protein electrostatics; phase association; surface adsorption; coarse grained models; Monte Carlo simulations;

    Abstract : Anisotropic protein interactions have a strong orientation dependence resulting from an uneven distribution of charged and hydrophobic residues on the protein surface. They play an important role in protein behaviors such as protein association, surface adsorption and phase separation. READ MORE
