  1. 1. Structural basis for metalloprotein catalysis : Characterization of Mycobacterium tuberculosis phosphatidylinositol phosphate synthase PgsA1 and Bacillus anthracis ribonucleotide reductase R2

    Author : Kristīne Grāve; Martin Högbom; Susanna Törnroth-Horsefield; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : About a third of all proteins need to associate with a particular metal ion or metallo-inorganic cofactor to function. This interplay expands the catalytic repertoire of enzymes and reflects the adaption of these catalytic macromolecules to the environments they have evolved in. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proton pathways in energy conversion : K-pathway analogs in O2- and NO-reductases

    Author : Nathalie Gonska; Pia Ädelroth; Alessandro Giuffré; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; heme-copper oxidase; cytochrome c oxidase; membrane protein; respiration; electron transfer; proton transfer; redox reaction; metalloprotein; non-heme iron; cytochrome ba3; flow-flash; carbon monoxide; liposome; respiratory control ratio; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Oxygen and nitric oxide reductases are enzymes found in aerobic and anaerobic respiration, respectively. Both enzyme groups belong to the superfamily of Heme-Copper Oxidases, which is further divided into several subgroups: oxygen-reducing enzymes into A-, B- and C-type and nitric oxide reductases into qNORs and cNORs.

  3. 3. To metal, or not to metal : Diverse mechanisms of O2-activation and radical storage in the ferritin superfamily

    Author : Vivek Srinivas; Martin Högbom; Brian Hoffman; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Metalloprotein; di-metal; Oxygen activation; Substrate oxidation; Ribonucleotide reductase; Radical; DOPA; ADE-DOT; X-Ray free-electron laser; soluble Methane monooxygenase; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Proteins in the Ferritin-like superfamily are characterized by a four alpha-helical structural motif. These proteins are distributed across all three kingdoms of life and perform a wide range of functions. READ MORE

    Abstract : Investigations of soft matter using ultrashort high intensity pulses have been made possible through the advent of X-ray free-electrons lasers. The last decade has seen the development of a new type of protein crystallography where femtosecond dynamics can be studied, and single particle imaging with atomic resolution is on the horizon.

  5. 5. Computational protein crystallography : How to get the most out of your data

    Author : Justin Bergmann; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hirshfeld atom refinement HAR ; ; quantum refinement; protein crystallography; X-ray crystallography; neutron crystallography; nitrogenase; acetylcholin esterase; triose isomerase;

    Abstract : It is important to obtain accurate three dimensional structures of molecules and proteins to understand and predict their function and behaviour. X-ray crystallography is the major technique to determine three dimensional structures of proteins. READ MORE
