  1. 1. Photoswitchable Peptidomimetics : Synthesis and Photomodulation of Functional Peptides

    Author : Miranda Varedian; Adolf Gogoll; Morten Grøtli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; β-hairpin; peptidomimetics; stilbene; thioaurone; photochemistry; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The secondary structure of peptides is of pivotal importance for their biological function. The introduction of photoswitchable moieties into the backbones of peptides provides a unique way of regulating their conformation using an external stimulus, i.e., light. READ MORE

  2. 2. Synthesis of Ring-fused Peptidomimetics : Interacting with Amyloid Fibrils

    Author : Dan E. Adolfsson; Fredrik Almqvist; Anna Linusson; Morten Grötli; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; organic chemistry; synthesis; peptidomimetics; thiazoline fused 2-pyridones; Alzheimer s disease; Parkinson s disease; Amyloid; Amyloid-beta; alfa-Synuclein; method development; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease are the two most common neurological disorders in humans. Both conditions involve progressive death of neurons in the central nervous system, decline in bodily functions and eventually (and invariably), death. So far, no cure exists and the available treatments can only ease symptoms. READ MORE

  3. 3. Light-Triggered Conformational Switches for Modulation of Molecular Recognition : Applications for Peptidomimetics and Supramolecular Systems

    Author : Magnus Blom; Adolf Gogoll; Morten Grötli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Bisporphyrin tweezers; peptidomimetics; host-guest systems; conformational analysis; supramolecular chemistry; photochemistry; Organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry; Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The main focus of this thesis is on photochemical modulation of molecular recognition in various host-guest systems. This involves the design, synthesis and integration of light-triggered conformational switches into peptidomimetic guests and molecular tweezer hosts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Synthesis of β-turn and pyridine based peptidomimetics

    Author : David Blomberg; Jan Kihlberg; Kay Brickmann; Torbjörn Frejd; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Peptidomimetics; beta-turn; beta-strand; pyridine scaffold; Grignard exchange reaction; SNAr reaction; thrombin inhibitor; Leu-enkephalin.; Organic synthesis; Organisk syntes;

    Abstract : Despite the unfavorable pharmacokinetic properties associated with peptides, they are still of great interest in drug development due to a multitude of interesting biological functions. The development of peptidomimetics strives to maintain or improve the biological activity of a peptide concurrently with removing the unwanted properties. READ MORE

  5. 5. NMR as a tool in drug research : Structure elucidation of peptidomimetics and pilicide-chaperone complexes

    Author : Mattias Hedenström; Jan Jan Kihlberg; Ingmar Sethson; Michael P. Williamson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic chemistry; NMR; structure calculations; peptidomimetics; desmopressin; Leu-enkephalin; chemical shift mapping; pilicides; chaperones; urinary tract infections.; Organisk kemi; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : In the last decades NMR spectroscopy has become an invaluable tool both in academic research and in the pharmaceutical industry. This thesis describes applications of NMR spectroscopy in biomedicinal research for structure elucidation of biologically active peptides and peptidomimetics as well as in studies of ligand-protein interactions.
