  1. 1. Heat shock proteins as vaccine adjuvants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Khaleda Rahman Qazi; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heat shock protein; vaccine; adjuvant; BCG; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi;

    Abstract : New efficient vaccines against infectious diseases are in demand. Some important factors impeding the vaccine development are the poor immunogenicity and the MHC restriction of the immune responses to a number of antigens. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interactions Between Small Heat Shock Proteins and Substrate Proteins Mass Spectrometric Detection of Crosslinked Peptides to Map Protein-Protein Interactions

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Emma Åhrman; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein-protein interactions; Small heat shock proteins; Mass spectrometric peptide mapping; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : The small heat shock proteins (sHsps) are a widespread class of molecular chaperones existing in all organisms. During heat stress the sHsps protect other proteins from unfolding and aggregation. In plants the sHsps play an especially prominent part of the stress response. READ MORE

  3. 3. Heat shock proteins in exercised human skeletal muscle

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Mattias Folkesson; Örebro universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endurance training; Resistance training; Muscle Fibre Type; Electrical Pulse Stimulation; Muscle Hypertrophy;

    Abstract : Exercise is considered as an important stressor accompanied by concerted molecular and cellular changes leading to adaptations at the level of skeletal muscle size and function. An important protein family produced by cells in response to stressful conditions is the heat shock proteins (HSPs). READ MORE

  4. 4. Controlling protein homeostasis through regulation of Heat shock factor 1

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Anna E. Masser; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stress; protein homeostasis; molecular chaperones; heat shock response; Hsf1; Hsp70; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : In order to thrive in a changing environment all organisms need to ensure protein homeostasis (proteostasis). Proteostasis is ensured by the proteostasis system that monitors the folding status of the proteome and regulates cell physiology and gene expression to counteract any perturbations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Induction of the heat-shock response by misfolded proteins

    University dissertation from Stockholm University

    Author : Anna E. Masser; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Cells respond to stress by transcriptional changes intended for stress survival and adaption to further stresses. Heat shock is an intensively studied stress condition that induces in a plethora of physiological changes including increased protein misfolding. READ MORE
