  1. 1. Molecular principles of protein stability and protein-protein interactions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Christofer Lendel; Per-Åke Nygren; Christopher M. Dobson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; affibody; binding thermodynamics; induced fit; molten globule; NMR spectroscopy; protein engineering; protein-protein interactions; protein stability; protein structure.; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering Structural biochemistry; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik Strukturbiokemi;

    Abstract : Proteins with highly specific binding properties constitute the basis for many important applications in biotechnology and medicine. Immunoglobulins have so far been the obvious choice but recent advances in protein engineering have provided several novel constructs that indeed challenge antibodies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human Aquaporins: Production, Characterization and Interactions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jennie Sjöhamn; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquaporins; membrane protein; protein production; protein characterization; protein:protein interactions; structural biochemistry;

    Abstract : Membrane proteins are essential components of the cell and responsible for the communication with the outside environment and transport of molecules across the membrane. Water transport is facilitated by aquaporins, which are water selective transmembrane pores that serve to maintain cell homeostasis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structure determination and thermodynamic stabilization of an engineered protein-protein complex

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Elisabet Wahlberg; Per-Åke Nygren; Bengt-Harald Jonsson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; affibody; protein structure; coupled folding; NMR spectroscopy; protein stability; protein-protein interactions; binding thermodynamics; isothermal titration calorimetry; protein engineering; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering Structural biochemistry; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik Strukturbiokemi;

    Abstract : The interaction between two 6 kDa proteins has been investigated. The studied complex of micromolar affinity (Kd) consists of the Z domain derived from staphylococcal protein A and the related protein ZSPA-1, belonging to a group of binding proteins denoted affibody molecules generated via combinatorial engineering of the Z domain.

  4. 4. Tailoring of Biomaterials using Ionic Interactions Synthesis, Characterization and Application

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Atthoff; Jöns Hilborn; Tim Bowden; Mats Andersson; [2006]
    Keywords : Chemistry; biodegradable polymers; ionomer; water uptake; protein delivery; protein adsorption; protein membrane; cell seeding efficiency; amphiphillic; inner structure; polarized membrane; Kemi;

    Abstract : The interactions between polymers and components of biological systems are an important area of interest within the fields of tissue engineering, polymer chemistry, medicine and biomaterials. In order to create such a biomimetic material, it must show the inherent ability to reproduce or elicit a biological function. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular characterization of protein phosphorylation in plant photosynthetic membranes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Hansson; Alexander V. Vener; Jean-David Rochaix; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; protein phosphorylation; photosynthesis; mass spectrometry; protein characterization; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Higher plants cannot move to a more favorable place when the environmental conditions are changing. To adapt to changes in light, temperature and access to water the plants had to evolve special mechanisms at the molecular level. READ MORE
