  1. 1. PresequenceProtease (PreP), a novel Peptidasome in Mitochondria and Chloroplasts Localization, Function, Structure and Mechanism of Proteolysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Shashi Bhushan; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein import; mitochondria; chloroplasts; PresequenceProtease; Alzheimer; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The information for mitochondrial and chloroplastic protein import and targeting generally resides in the N-terminal part of the protein, called a targeting peptide. The targeting peptide is cleaved off by the organellar processing peptidases after import of a precursor protein. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dual targeting of glutathione reductase to mitochondria and chloroplasts

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Charlotta Rudhe; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dual targeting; mitochondria; chloroplasts; import; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : As a consequence of the presence of both mitochondria and chloroplasts in plant cells there is a higher sorting requirement in a plant cell than that in a non-plant cell. Reflecting this, protein import to mitochondria and chloroplasts has been shown to be highly specific. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dual targeting of proteins to mitochondria and chloroplasts Characterization of dual targeting peptides and their interaction with organellar receptors

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

    Author : Erika Spånning; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Most mitochondrial and chloroplastic proteins are synthesized in the cytosol as precursor proteins with an N-terminal targeting peptide (TP), which directs them to the correct organelle. There is also a group of proteins that are dual targeted to mitochondria and chloroplasts using an ambiguous N-terminal dual targeting peptide (dTP). READ MORE

  4. 4. Dual Targeting of Proteins to Mitochondria and Chloroplasts

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

    Author : Anna-Karin Berglund; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The vast majority of mitochondrial and chloroplastic proteins are nuclear encoded, synthesized in the cytosol and imported into the respective organelle using an N-terminal extension, the targeting peptide (TP). After import into the organelle, the TP is cleaved off and degraded by the Presequence protease (PreP). READ MORE

  5. 5. F F₁-ATPase of plant mitochondria : purification and characterization of the structural and functional properties of the individual subunits

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Beston Hamasur; Stockholms universitet.; [1992]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Plant leaf cells constitute a unique system in which both mitochondria and chloroplasts are responsible for energy conversion. In both organelles, ATP synthase is responsible for the synthesis of ATP from ADP and Pi in a process coupled to an electron transfer chain. READ MORE
