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

    Author : Jennie Sjöhamn; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : 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. Characterization and Crystallization of Anchorless Glypican-1

    Author : Gabriel Svensson Birkedal; Glykobiologigruppen; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; S-nitrosylation; nitric oxide; protein stability; protein conformation; X-ray crystallography; calorimetry; spectroscopy; proteoglycan; glypican; heparan sulfate;

    Abstract : Glypicans are cell-surface heparan sulfate proteoglycans that regulate Wnt, Hedgehog, bone morphogenetic protein, and fibroblast growth factor signaling through their heparan sulfate chains. Recent studies have shown that glypican core proteins also have functional roles in growth factor signaling, but biochemical and structural knowledge regarding the core proteins is limited.

  4. 4. From Starch to Starch Microspheres. Formation of an Ordered Structure during Processing

    Author : Lidia Elfstrand; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknik; Pharmaceutical and related technologies; Läkemedelsteknik och relaterad teknik; crystallization; Technological sciences; starch microspheres; protein delivery;

    Abstract : Starch microsphere is a dosage form suitable for the encapsulation of protein drugs. The starch microspheres investigated in this thesis are intended for release of the drug in a pre-designed way, or in controlled manner. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural and functional properties of transthyretin

    Author : Anders Karlsson; A. Elisabeth Sauer-Eriksson; Salam Al-Karadaghi; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transthyretin; Amyloidosis; X-ray crystallography; Protein structure; Protein; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi;

    Abstract : The hereditary transthyretin (TTR) amyloidoses are rare, and in severe cases, fatal disorders caused by mutations in the TTR gene. The clinical picture is diverse, involving neuropathies and myopathies, and mainly depends on the causative mutation and the sites and rates of amyloid deposition. READ MORE
