    Abstract : New strategies are needed to counter the growing problem of bacterial resistance to antibiotics. One such strategy is to design compounds that target bacterial virulence, which could work separately or in concert with conventional bacteriostatic or bactericidal antibiotics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optical characterization of potential drugs and drug delivery systems

    Author : Erik Rosenbaum; Lennart B-Å Johansson; Sven Engström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Pilicide; Ganglioside GM1 micelles; Drug Delivery; Elecronic Energy Transfer; UV-Vis Absorption; Fluorescence Spectroscopy; Biophysical chemistry; Biofysikalisk kemi; fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : This Thesis is a characterization study on substances having potency as drugs as well as on a lipid based drug-delivery matrix. The optical properties of newly synthesized molecules with proven pilicide properties have been characterized with several spectroscopic methods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Synthesis and biological evaluation of Bicyclic β-Lactams and 2-Pyridinones : Pilicides Targeting Pilus Biogenesis in Pathogenic Bacteria

    Author : Hans Emtenäs; Ulf Nilsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic chemistry; β-lactam; 2-pyridinone; 2-pyridone; Meldrum’s acid; Δ2-thiazoline; solid-phase synthesis; microwave assisted synthesis; antibacterial; pili; pilicide; Organisk kemi; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : New methods have been developed for the synthesis of bicyclic β-lactams and 2-pyridinones by combining acyl Meldrum’s acids and Δ2-thiazolines. The 2-pyridinones were synthesised both in solution using conventional heating or microwave assisted heating as well as by solid supported chemistry. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of 2-Pyridone-based central fragments : Affecting the aggregation of amyloid proteins

    Author : Magnus Sellstedt; Fredrik Almqvist; Petri Pihko; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 2-pyridone; central fragment alteration; multi-component reactions; directed diversity-oriented synthesis; peptidomimetics; amyloid; protein aggregation; pilicide; curlicide; Biorganic Chemistry; bioorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : There are many applications of small organic compounds, e.g. as drugs or as tools to study biological systems. Once a compound with interesting biological activity has been found, medicinal chemists typically synthesize small libraries of compounds with systematic differences to the initial “hit” compound.

  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.
