  1. 1. Protein Nanomaterials: : Functionalization, Self-assembly, and Applications

    Author : Lei Wang; Niclas Solin; Olle Inganäs; German Salazar-Alvarez; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : As one of the major classes of materials that is relevant to biological function of our daily life, proteins are highly interesting in both biological and material science. Self-assembled protein amyloid nanostructures have been considered not only as aggregates in pathological tissue, but also as a kind of advanced one dimension materials in material science perspective due to their favorable characteristics including high aspect ratio, abundant surface charge groups, high stability, and tunable surface properties.

  2. 2. Bioanalysis using capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry : Applied on proteins, protein nanofibrils and polyvinyl alcohol microbubbles

    Author : Leila Josefsson; Åsa Emmer; Ulrika Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; : amyloid; capillary electrophoresis; contrast agents; detection; human blood plasma; ionic liquids; mass spectrometry; microbubbles; polyvinyl alcohol microbubbles; protein nanofibrils; proteins; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The sequencing of the genome of various species, including the human species, have led to increased understanding about how a protein structure is generated, and how specific structures are related to the proteins’ functionality. In paper I and II of this thesis, the folding of proteins in vitro to form hierarchical nanostructures, which in vivo often have a pathological effect, have been studied. READ MORE

  3. 3. Functionalized protein nanomaterials and their biotechnological applications

    Author : Benjamin Schmuck; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : As the ribosomal synthesis of a nascent polypeptide progresses, the chain immediately undergoes folding into α-helical and β-strand secondary structure elements. While the protein matures, the polypeptide collapses into higher order constructs that ultimately form the native protein state. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nanostructured Biopolymeric Materials : Hydrodynamic Assembly, Mechanical Properties and Bio-Functionalities

    Author : Nitesh Mittal; Daniel Söderberg; Chinedum Osuji; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The need for high-end multifunctional materials from renewable resources has evolved given a rapidly increasing population and accompanying environmental concerns. Scalable assembly methods are and will be imperative in designing high-performance environmentally friendly materials, requiring new processes allowing control on all hierarchical levels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Polysaccharides from red and green seaweed : Extraction, characterisation and applications

    Author : Niklas Wahlström; Ulrica Edlund; Fredrik Gröndahl; Federica Chiellini; KTH; []
    Keywords : biorefinery; seaweed; macroalgae; Ulva; Porphyra; ulvan; porphyran; cellulose; gelatin; hydrogel; heavy metal; methylene blue; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Cultivation of seaweed has been conducted for centuries in Asia, but is largely undeveloped in Sweden even though there is potential for this industry. Seaweed offers benefits compared with land-based biomass cultivation. READ MORE
