  1. 1. Improved Neuropeptide Identification : Bioinformatics and Mass Spectrometry

    Author : Maria Fälth Savitski; Per Andrén; David Fenyö; Per Svenningsson; Ronald Beavis; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; neuropepides; database; peptide identification; peptide fragmentation; mass spectrometry; tandem mass spectromerty; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Bioinformatic methods were developed for improved identification of endogenous peptides using mass spectrometry. As a framework for these methods, a database for endogenous peptides, SwePep, was created. It was designed for storing information about endogenous peptides including tandem mass spectra. READ MORE

  2. 2. Identification and Characterization of Peptides and Proteins using Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometry

    Author : Magnus Palmblad; Ole Nørregaard Jensen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Peptide; protein; peptide mass fingerprinting; identification; sequencing; protein structure; non-covalent interaction; modification; electrospray ionization; liquid chromatography; capillary electrophoresis; electron capture dissociation; Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry; cerebrospinal fluid; amyloid β-peptide; Alzheimer’s disease.; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Molecular Biotechnology; Molekylär bioteknik;

    Abstract : Mass spectrometry has in recent years been established as the standard method for protein identification and characterization in proteomics with excellent intrinsic sensitivity and specificity. Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance is the mass spectrometric technique that provides the highest resolving power and mass accuracy, increasing the amount of information that can be obtained from complex samples.

  3. 3. The Alzheimer Aβ Peptide : Identification of Properties Distinctive for Toxic Prefibrillar Species

    Author : Anna-Lena Göransson; Jenny Presto; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Proteins must have specific conformations to function correctly inside cells. However, sometimes they adopt the wrong conformation, causing dysfunction and disease. A number of amyloid diseases are caused by misfolded proteins that form amyloid fibrils. One such disease is Alzheimer’s disease (AD). READ MORE

  4. 4. Structural investigation of SOD1 aggregates in ALS : identification of prion strains using anti-peptide antibodies

    Author : Johan Bergh; Thomas Brännström; Stefan L. Marklund; Peter M. Andersen; Joakim Bergström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ALS; SOD1; prion; motor neuron disease; neurodegeneration; strain; seeding; protein aggregation; transgenic mice; peptide antibodies; Neurology; neurologi;

    Abstract : Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative syndrome characterized by progressive degeneration of motor neurons that result in muscle wasting. The symptoms advance gradually to paralysis and eventually death. Most patients suffer from sporadic ALS (sALS) but 10% report a familial predisposition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inhibitors Targeting Insulin-Regulated Aminopeptidase (IRAP) : Identification, Synthesis and Evaluation

    Author : Karin Engen; Mats Larhed; Mikael Elofsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; compound screening; insulin-regulated aminopeptidase; IRAP; inhibitors; cognitive disorders; spiro-oxindole; quinazolinone; imidazopyridine; medicinal chemistry; structure-activity relationship; microwave heating; Medicinal Chemistry; Läkemedelskemi;

    Abstract : Insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP) has emerged as a potential new therapeutic target for treatment of cognitive disorders. Inhibition of the enzymatic activity facilitates cognition in rodents. READ MORE
