  1. 1. Characterization of galanin receptors using chimeric peptides and site-directed mutagenesis

    Author : Ulla Eriksson Sollenberg; Ülo Langel; Anna-Lena Hulting; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; galanin; GPCR; mutagenesis; neuropeptide; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; Neurochemistry and Neurotoxicology; neurokemi och neurotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Galanin, a 29 (30) amino acid neuropeptide, is found throughout both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It signals via three receptors, GalR1-3, all belonging to the rhodopsin-like G-protein coupled receptors. Galanin and its receptors have been implicated in a vast variety of biological processes.

  2. 2. Mutational Analysis and Redesign of Alpha-class Glutathione Transferases for Enhanced Azathioprine Activity

    Author : Olof Modén; Bengt Mannervik; Mikael Widersten; Kenneth Tew; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; allelic variants; azathioprine; bioactivation; chimeric mutagenesis; directed evolution; DNA shuffling; enzyme engineering; glutathione transferase; GST; lysate screening; molecular docking; multiple alignment; multivariate analysis; polymorphism; principal component analysis; prodrug; prodrug activation; protein engineering; protein redesign; reduced amino acid alphabet; saturation mutagenesis; semi-rational enzyme engineering; site-directed mutagenesis; structure-activity relationship; structure-based redesign; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Glutathione transferase (GST) A2-2 is the human enzyme most efficient in catalyzing azathioprine activation. Structure-function relationships were sought explaining the higher catalytic efficiency compared to other alpha class GSTs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Receptor-ligand interactions of the human 5-HT1B receptor : A site-directed mutagenesis study

    Author : Charlotta Grånäs; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; 5-hydroxytryptamine; serotonin; 5-HT1B receptor; site-directed mutagenesis; signal transduction; sumatriptan; G protein; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; medicinsk farmakologi; Medical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : The 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin)1B receptor is one of thirteen G protein-coupled 5-HT receptors. 5-HT is known to influence temperature regulation, pain, cognition and sexual and feeding behaviours. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mutagenesis induced by xenobiotics : factors of importance and modification, with special emphasis on glutathione and glutathione transferases

    Author : Lennart Romert; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Genetic changes induced by chemical agents can result in cancer. Such tumor formation can be linked to activationof oncogenes, often through specific, definable mutagenic events, e.g., single base-pair mutation in specific codons. READ MORE
