  1. 1. Marginally hydrophobic transmembrane α-helices shaping membrane protein folding

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of biochemistry and biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Tuuli Minttu Virkki de Marothy; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; membrane protein folding; hydrophobicity; translocon; transmembrane helix; marginally hydrophobic transmembrane helices; orientational preference; positive inside rule; aquaporin 1; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Most membrane proteins are inserted into the membrane co-translationally utilizing the translocon, which allows a sufficiently long and hydrophobic stretch of amino acids to partition into the membrane. However, X-ray structures of membrane proteins have revealed that some transmembrane helices (TMHs) are surprisingly hydrophilic. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Ins and Outs of Membrane Proteins Topology Studies of Bacterial Membrane Proteins

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Mikaela Rapp; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; membrane protein; topology; dual topology; ODONTOLOGY Biochemistry; ODONTOLOGI Biokemi;

    Abstract : α-helical membrane proteins comprise about a quarter of all proteins in a cell and carry out a wide variety of essential cellular functions. This thesis is focused on topology analyses of bacterial membrane proteins. The topology describes the two-dimensional structural arrangement of a protein relative to the membrane. READ MORE

  3. 3. Membrane protein topology : Prediction, experimental mapping and genome-wide analysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Author : Johan Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]

    Abstract : Membrane proteins constitute a large and important class of proteins. They are responsible for many crucial processes in living cells, and about 25% of all proteins encoded by a typical genome are predicted to be membrane proteins. Despite their importance, very few structures have been determined at atomic resolution. READ MORE

  4. 4. Insane in the membrane: Insertion of marginally hyrdophobic transmembrane helices and global analysis of membrane protein topology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Daniel Nilsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Proteins are responsible for carrying out most of the tasks in a living cell; transcription, translation, replication, movement, catalysis and communication to mention a few. A subset of proteins is the integral membrane proteins, IMPs, which play an important role in governing communication across membranes, whether it is the plasma membrane or an organelle membrane.

  5. 5. Infective Endocarditis aspects of pathophysiology, epidemiology, management and prognosis

    University dissertation from Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Christer Ekdahl; Rolf Maller; Mats Broqvist; Urban Forsum; Lennart E. Nilsson; Rune Andersson; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; Infective endocarditis IE ; heart valve surgery; monocytes; granulocytes; staphylococ; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas Epidemiology; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden Epidemiologi;

    Abstract : Infective endocarditis (IE) is a rare but complex disease that is fatal if untreated. With a modern combination of antimicrobial therapy and heart valve surgery, mortality is still 10-20 %. The structure of the endocarditis vegetation impedes the penetration of phagocytic cells such as monocytes and granulocytes. READ MORE
