  1. 1. Array-based Autoantibody Profiling and Epitope Mapping

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Arash Zandian; KTH.; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; antibody; antigens; peptide; epitope mapping; autoimmunity; autoantibodies; microarrays; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Antibodies are a class of proteins that are made by the immune system to recognize harmful organisms and molecules. Their exceptional capability of specifically recognizing molecules has been investigated for over a century and information thereof has been utilized for a variety of applications including vaccine and generation of therapeutic antibodies.

  2. 2. Epitope mapping of antibodies towards human protein targets

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Barbara Hjelm; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; antibody; antibody validation; biomarker; epitope mapping; peptide array; proteomics; RBM3; staphylococcal surface display;

    Abstract : This thesis, based on five research papers, presents results from development and evaluation ofmethods for identifying the interaction site of antibodies on their antigens and the functional investigation of these in different assays. As antibodies have proven to be invaluable tools in diagnostics, therapy and basic research, the demand of characterizing these binding molecules has increased. READ MORE

  3. 3. Utilizing Solid Phase Cloning, Surface Display And Epitope Information for Antibody Generation and Characterization

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology
