  1. 1. Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy to Study Plasma Membrane Protein Dynamics

    University dissertation from Lausanne : EPFL

    Author : Joachim Piguet; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence; microscopy; plasma membrane; membrane proteins; membrane proteins diffusion; single-molecule imaging; single-molecule tracking; pentameric ligand-gated ion channels; nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; serotonin receptor; synapse; neuromuscular junction; post-synaptic scaffold; rapsyn; myopathies; fluorescent proteins; Förster resonance energy transfer; FRET imaging; protein-protein interactions; protein trafficking; photo-activatable proteins; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Abstract : Membrane protein dynamics is of great importance for living organisms. The precise localization of proteins composing a synapse on the membrane facing a nerve terminus is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system. In muscle fibers, the nicotinic acetylcholine is densely packed under the motor nerve termini. READ MORE

  2. 2. Membrane protein topogenesis

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

    Author : Karin Öjemalm; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The membranes of cells are highly complex and heterogeneous structures that fulfill multiple vital tasks. They form thin barriers that seal out the environment, thus defining the cell’s boundaries. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring the Interplay of Lipids and Membrane Proteins

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

    Author : Candan Ariöz; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biokemi; Biochemistry; Membrane lipids; membrane proteins; anionic lipids; membrane remodeling; intracellular vesicles; model membrane systems; glycosyltransferase; Escherichia coli; lipid composition; fatty acid modification; membrane curvature; bacterial homeoviscous adaptation;

    Abstract : The interplay between lipids and membrane proteins is known to affect membrane protein topology and thus have significant effect (control) on their functions. In this PhD thesis, the influence of lipids on the membrane protein function was studied using three different membrane protein models. READ MORE

  4. 4. Enhancing membrane and secretory protein production yields in Escherichia coli

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

    Author : Zhe Zhang; Stockholms universitet.; [2020]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; recombinant protein production; Escherichia coli; membrane protein; secretory protein; strain engineering; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Proteins fulfill essential functions in living cells. To produce sufficient amounts of a protein is essential to study the structure and function of a protein, or to use it for medical purposes. Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative bacterium that is widely used for recombinant protein production. READ MORE

  5. 5. Membrane Protein Biogenesis in Escherichia coli : A proteomics approach

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

    Author : David Vikström; Stockholms universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : SRP; YidC; SecE; Membrane protein biogenesis; protein targeting; 2D BN SDS-PAGE; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : In the bacterium Escherichia coli all proteins are synthesized in the cytoplasm. However, at least 25% of them then need to be exported to another cellular compartment where they exert their function. E. coli has several different targeting pathways to ensure the correct localization of its proteins. READ MORE
