  1. 1. Versatile Implementations of an Improved Cell-Free System for Protein Biosynthesis : Functional and structural studies of ribosomal protein L11 and class II release factor RF3. Novel biotechnological approach for continuous protein biosynthesis

    Author : Lamine Bouakaz; Måns Ehrenberg; Richard Buckingham; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Protein synthesis; translation termination; ribosome; release factor; cell-free system; missense error; gel filtration; affinity chromatography; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Advances in genetics, proteomics and chromatography techniques have enabled the successfully generation of a cell-free bacterial translation system composed of highly pure and active components. This system provided an ideal platform for better elucidating the mechanism of each individual step of the prokaryotic protein biosynthesis and the function of the translation factors involved in the process.

  2. 2. Glycosaminoglycan Biosynthesis in Zebrafish

    Author : Beata Filipek-Górniok; Lena Kjellén; Johan Ledin; Kay Grobe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heparan sulfate; chondroitin dermatan sulfate; biosynthesis; development; N-deacetylase N-sulfotransferase; glycosyltransferases; morpholino; CRISPR-Cas9;

    Abstract : Proteoglycans (PGs) are composed of highly sulfated glycosaminoglycans chains (GAGs) attached to specific core proteins. They are present in extracellular matrices, on the cell surface and in storage granules of hematopoietic cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural and biochemical insights into biosynthesis and degradation of N-glycans

    Author : Tom Reichenbach; Christina Divne; David Drew; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; N-glycan; biosynthesis; degradation; glycosyltransferase; glycoside hydrolase; biofuel; enzyme; membrane protein; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Carbohydrates are a primary energy source for all living organisms, but importantly, they also participate in a number of life-sustaining biological processes, e.g. cell signaling and cell-wall synthesis. The first part of the thesis examines glycosyltransferases that play a crucial role in the biosynthesis of N-glycans. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biosynthesis of decorin and glypican glycosaminoglycan chains

    Author : Mats Jönsson; Bröstca-genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Metabolism; Biochemistry; phosphorylation; biosynthesis; glycosaminoglycan; decorin; glypican; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Abstract : Proteoglycans consist of core proteins substituted with glycosaminoglycan chains. The galactosaminoglycans (GlcUA/IdoUA-GalNAc) and the glucosaminoglycans (GlcUA/IdoUA-GlcNAc) are both initiated on the same tetrasaccharide linkage region GlcUA-Gal-Gal-Xyl-protein. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Role of Protein Kinase C in the Extracellular Ca2+-regulated Secretion of Parathyroid Hormone

    Author : Amos M. Sakwe; Lars Rask; Claes Juhlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; parathyroid hormone; Ca2 ; protein kinase C; calcium sensing receptor; ERK1 2; biosynthesis; secretion; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is the major physiological regulator of the extracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]o) in the body. The secretion of this hormone is suppressed at high [Ca2+]o. READ MORE
