  1. 1. Pharmacogenetic studies of thiopurines focus on thiopurine methyltransferase

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Malin Lindqvist Appell; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Pharmacogenetics represents the study ofvariability in drug response due to genetic variations. The thiopurines (6-mercaptopurine, 6-thioguanine and azathioprine) are prodrugs which require metabolic transformation to exert effect. READ MORE

  3. 3. Meticulous control of the T3SS of Yersinia is essential for full virulence

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för molekylärbiologi, Teknisk-naturvetenskaplig fakultet, Umeå universitet

    Author : Ann-Catrin Björnfot; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Yersinia; type III secretion; YscU; substrate specificity switch; heat shock proteins; VagH; methyltransferase; virulence; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The type III secretion system (T3SS) of pathogenic Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is involved in virulence. The syringe-like secretion system spans both bacterial membranes and is responsible for the ability of Yersinia to transfer toxic proteins (Yop proteins) into the eukaryotic target cell. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exotic Ribosomal Enzymology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Josefine Liljeruhm; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; rRNA modification; Methyltransferase; RlmM; RlmJ; D-amino acid; Unnatural amino acid; Chromoprotein; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis clarifies intriguing enzymology of the ribosome, the multiRNA/multiprotein complex that catalyzes protein synthesis (translation). The large ribosomal RNAs (23S and 16S rRNAs in E. coli) are post-transcriptionally modified by many specific modification enzymes, yet the functions of the modifications remain enigmatic. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biophysical Characterization of Thiopurine S-Methyltransferase : A Key enzyme in the Effects of Thiopurine Drugs

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Patricia Wennerstrand; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In the treatment of leukemia and inflammatory bowel disease, thiopurines are commonly used drugs. Thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) is one of the drug metabolizing enzymes responsible of counteracting the formation of TGNs that will be incorporated into the DNA and RNA synthesis and thus induce apoptosis.
