  1. 1. Membrane interactions of glycosyltransferases

    Author : Jobst Liebau; Lena Mäler; Christofer Lendel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lipid; bicelle; glycosyltransferase; NMR; Biophysics; biofysik;

    Abstract : Many important biological processes occur near or in membranes. The role of membranes is not merely confined to compartmentalization, they also form the matrix for membrane associated proteins and are of functional importance. Membrane associated proteins on the other hand require specific membrane properties for proper function. READ MORE

  2. 2. Glycosaminoglycan Biosynthesis in Zebrafish

    Author : Beata Filipek-Górniok; Lena Kjellén; Johan Ledin; Kay Grobe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heparan sulfate; chondroitin dermatan sulfate; biosynthesis; development; N-deacetylase N-sulfotransferase; glycosyltransferases; morpholino; CRISPR-Cas9;

    Abstract : Proteoglycans (PGs) are composed of highly sulfated glycosaminoglycans chains (GAGs) attached to specific core proteins. They are present in extracellular matrices, on the cell surface and in storage granules of hematopoietic cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computer-Assisted Carbohydrate Structural Studies and Drug Discovery

    Author : Magnus Lundborg; Göran Widmalm; Hans-Christian Siebert; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbohydrates; molecular docking; molecular dynamics simulation; fragment-based virtual screening; NMR spectroscopy; computer-aided drug design; computer-aided structure elucidation; glycosyltransferases; Escherichia coli; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Carbohydrates are abundant in nature and have functions ranging from energy storage to acting as structural components. Analysis of carbohydrate structures is important and can be used for, for instance, clinical diagnosis of diseases as well as in bacterial studies. The complexity of glycans makes it difficult to determine their structures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of Binding Events and Diffusion in Living Cells

    Author : Markus Elsner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : COPI; Golgi; Diffusion; Glycosyltransferases; Sorting; Molecular; Crowding;

    Abstract : It is well known that diffusion is the main mode of transport in living cells, but the consequences of diffusion in a complex cellular environment are not generally appreciated. In this thesis, we have investigated several aspects of how diffusion properties influence the observability of cellular binding kinetics and how they can be used to obtain information about the environment of proteins and other molecules.

  5. 5. Bioinformatic studies of genetic variation at known, novel and candidate blood group loci

    Author : Magnus Jöud; Avdelningen för hematologi och transfusionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bioinformatics; blood groups; glycosyltransferases; transfusion medicine;

    Abstract : Access to compatible blood for transfusion is a prerequisite for modern health care. The compatibility is limited by the presence of antibodies to blood group antigens, polymorphic protein and carbohydrate structures, on the surface of the red blood cell. Blood group antigens arise from genetic variation in the genes underlying their expression. READ MORE
