    Abstract : Oil palm has flourished as an economically vital crop in Indonesia given its use in both food and non-food products (including biodiesel) for domestic and export markets. However, the expansion of oil palm plantations in Indonesia is controversial. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Folding Energy Landscape of MerP

    Author : Ann-Christin Brorsson; Bengt-Harald Jonsson; Daniel Otzen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; protein folding and stability; hydrogen exchange; intermediate; partial unfolding; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on studies, described in four papers, in which the folding energy landscape of MerP was investigated by various techniques. MerP is a water-soluble 72 amino acid protein with a secondary structure consisting of four anti-parallel β-strands and two α-helices on one side of the sheet in the order β1α1β2β3α2β4. READ MORE

  4. 4. Understanding molecular mechanisms of protein tyrosine kinases by molecular dynamics and free energy calculations
