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

    Author : Christofer Lendel; Per-Åke Nygren; Christopher M. Dobson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; affibody; binding thermodynamics; induced fit; molten globule; NMR spectroscopy; protein engineering; protein-protein interactions; protein stability; protein structure.; Structural biochemistry; 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. Structure determination and thermodynamic stabilization of an engineered protein-protein complex

    Author : Elisabet Wahlberg; Per-Åke Nygren; Bengt-Harald Jonsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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; Structural biochemistry; 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.

  3. 3. Protein folding without loops and charges

    Author : Martin Kurnik; Mikael Oliveberg; Kevin W. Plaxco; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein folding; folding cooperativity; protein aggregation; protein charges; protein engineering; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Going down the folding funnel, proteins may sample a wide variety of conformations, some being outright detrimental to the organism. Yet, the vast majority of polypeptide molecules avoid such pitfalls. Not only do they reach the native minimum of the energy landscape; they do so via blazingly fast, biased, routes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Protein modularity : Structure and interactions by NMR and SPR

    Author : Amélie Wallenhammar; Maria Sunnerhagen; Björn Wallner; Lotta Tollstoy-Tegler; Helena Berglund; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Protein degradation is a fundamental cornerstone of regulation of protein levels in the human body. For proper function, numerous molecular processes rely on fine-tuned communication through specific interactions between proteins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nuclear envelope protein interaction studies

    Author : Mohammed Hakim Jaffer Ali; Einar Hallberg; Anki Östlund-Farrants; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Samp1; Nuclear envelope; protein interactions; chemical crosslinking; proteomics; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : The nuclear envelope (NE) separating the nucleoplasm from cytoplasm consists of two concentric lipid membranes, the outer (ONM) and inner (INM) nuclear membranes, the nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) and an underlying nuclear lamina network. The INM contains more than 100 unique transmembrane proteins of which only a few have been characterized. READ MORE
