  1. 1. Protein targeting, translocation and insertion in Escherichia coli Proteomic analysis of substrate-pathway relationships

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Louise Baars; Jan-Willem de Gier; Jan-Maarten van Dijl; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; protein biogenesis; targeting; translocation; insertion; SecB; SecE; E. coli; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Approximately 10% of the open reading frames in the genome of the Gram-negative bacterium E. coli encodes secretory proteins, and 20% encodes integral inner membrane proteins (IMPs). READ MORE

  2. 2. The Entheses of the Medial Meniscns and Ligaments of the Knee Joint : Descriptive and Experimental Studies

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jizong Gao; Michael Benjamin; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; knee joint; meniscus; ligaments; insertion; enthesis; quantitative morphology; fibrocartilage; cement line; collagens; proteoglycans; nerve fibres; tensile strength; failure mode; transection; refixation; repair; healing; osteoarthrosis; histology; immunohistochemistry; biomechanics; rabbit model; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Meniscal injuries are common in sports. Surgical removal of the meniscus to relieve symptoms is associated with a high risk for late knee joint osteoarthrosis and pain. Meniscal repair or replacement has therefore been advocated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Integration and topology of membrane proteins

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Carolina Boekel; Gunnar von Heijne; IngMarie Nilsson; Stephen High; ; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; insertion; Sec61; translocation; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Membrane proteins comprise around 20-30% of most proteomes. They play important roles in most biochemical pathways. All receptors and ion channels are membrane proteins, which make them attractive targets for drug design. Membrane proteins insert and fold co-translationally into the endoplasmic reticular membrane of eukaryotic cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Challenge of Probing Lithium Insertion Mechanisms in Cathode Materials

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonas Höwing; Torbjörn Gustafsson; Christian Masquelier; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inorganic chemistry; Li-ion battery; cathode materials; insertion mechanism; single-crystal X-ray diffraction; vanadium oxide; lithium iron phosphate; Oorganisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Inorganic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : The Li-ion battery has, from its commercialisation in the early 1990's, now become the most widely used power source for portable low-power electronics: laptops, cellular phones and MP3-players are a few examples. To further develop existing and find new electrode materials for these batteries, it is vital to understand the lithium insertion/extraction mechanisms taking place during battery operation.

  5. 5. Solvation properties of proteins in membranes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Anna CV Johansson; Erik Lindahl; Mounir Tarek; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; membrane protein; lipid bilayer; free energy; solvation; insertion; molecular dynamics simulations; protein mass fraction; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Theoretical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Teoretisk kemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Knowledge about the insertion and stabilization of membrane proteins is a key step towards understanding their function and enabling membrane protein design. Transmembrane helices are normally quite hydrophobic to insert efficiently, but there are many exceptions with unfavorable polar or titratable residues. READ MORE
