  1. 1. Processing of the amyloid precursor protein and its paralogues amyloid precursor-like proteins 1 and 2

    Author : Linda Adlerz; Kerstin Iverfeldt; Richard Cowburn; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; APP; APLP1; APLP2; Alzheimer s disease; Amyloid β-peptide; Processing; RA; BDNF; IGF-1; curcumin; PI3-K; MAPK; cdk5; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder which is histopathologically characterised by amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. Amyloid plaques consist of the amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) that can form aggregates in the brain. Aβ is generated from the amyloid precursor protein (APP) through proteolytic cleavage. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a new protective group for tryptophan

    Author : Marie Danielsson; Anders Undén; Amelie Karlström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : A new protective group for the indole nitrogen of the amino acid tryptophan, the Boc-sarcosinoyl-sarcosinolyl (Boc-Sar-Sar) is described. This protective group shows good stability to the reaction conditions used in solid phase peptide synthesis and is incorporated into the peptide as FmocTrp(BocSarSar)OH. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structures, toxicity and internalization of cell-penetrating peptides

    Author : Emelía Eiríksdóttir; Ülo Langel; Michael Gait; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CPP; cell-penetrating peptide; internalization; toxicity; structures; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : Cellular internalization is a highly regulated process controlled by proteins in the plasma membrane. Large and hydrophilic compounds, in particular, face difficulties conquering the plasma membrane barrier in order to gain access to intracellular environment. This puts serious constrains on the drug industry since many drugs are hydrophilic. READ MORE

  4. 4. Activation and Regulation of TRPV1 : Studies in Recombinant Human Neuroblastoma TRPV1-SHSY5Y Cells

    Author : Johanna EL Andaloussi-Lilja; Anna Forsby; Antonio Ferrer-Montiel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nociception; neurotrophic factors; eye irritation; stable transfection; Ca2 ; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : TRPV1 is a transmembrane non-selective cation channel with preference for Ca2+. The receptor is primarily localised on dorsal root ganglion neurons and is activated by numerous endogenous and exogenous potentially irritating ligands eliciting pain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vectorization of oligonucleotides with cell-penetrating peptides : Characterization of uptake mechanisms and cytotoxicity

    Author : Samir EL Andaloussi; Ülo Langel; Alain Prochiantz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CPP; endocytosis; splice correction; siRNA; PNA; cargo delivery; M918; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : The hydrophobic plasma membrane constitutes an indispensable barrier for cells in living animals. Albeit being pivotal for the maintenance of cells, the inability to cross the plasma membrane is still one of the major obstacles to overcome in order to progress current drug development. READ MORE
