  1. 1. Unravelling protein stability and aggregation

    Author : Tanja Weiffert; NanoLund; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein stability; protein aggregation; amyloid beta peptide; protein stabilization; split GFP; monellin; secretagogin; ; aggregation kinetics; toxicity; aggregation mechanism; coaggregation;

    Abstract : Proteins are complex macromolecules that are fundamental to all living species. The stability of proteins are governed by non-covalent forces within the protein and between the protein and its surrounding environment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Variation in length of proteins by repeats and disorder regions

    Author : Rauan Sagit; Arne Elofsson; Andrey Kajava; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein length; repeats; domain repeats; protein evolution; duplication; tandem duplication; intrinsic disorder; intrinsically disordered; variation in length; insertion; deletion; recombination; expansion; contraction; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Protein-coding genes evolve together with their genome and acquire changes, some of which affect the length of their protein products. This explains why equivalent proteins from different species can exhibit length differences. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein-Protein Interactions in Human Aquaporin Regulation

    Author : Jennifer Virginia Roche; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Membrane proteins; Human Aquaporins; water channels; Protein-protein interaction; Regulation; AQP2; AQP0; LIP5; CaM;

    Abstract : Water is an essential compoment of every living orgamism and forms a major part of the human body. Regulated water transport is crucial for proper cell functioning and body homeostasis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Proteome wide protein production

    Author : Hanna Tegel; Sophia Hober; Diethard Mattanovich; KTH; []
    Keywords : protein production; Escherichia coli; transcription; promoter; translation; rare codon; high-throughput; screening;

    Abstract : Over a decade after the completion of the human genome, researchers around the world are still wondering what information is hidden in the genome. Although the sequences of all human genes are known, it is still almost impossible to determine much more than the primary protein structure from the coding sequence of a gene. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization and Engineering of Protein-Protein Interactions Involving PDZ Domains

    Author : Andreas Karlsson; Per Jemth; Daniel Otzen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; intrinsically disordered protein regions; PDZ domain; binding kinetics; protein engineering; interaction mechanism; specificity; PDZbody; Chemistry with specialization in Biophysics; Kemi med inriktning mot biofysik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis has contributed with knowledge to several aspects of protein-protein interaction involving PDZ domains. A substantial amount of our proteome contains regions that are intrinsically disordered but fold upon ligand interaction. READ MORE
