  1. 1. Protein structure prediction : Zinc-binding sites, one-dimensional structure and remote homology

    Author : Nanjiang Shu; Sven Hovmöller; Bruce Donald; Geoff Barton; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein structure prediction; zinc-binding; profile; homology detection; shape string; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Structural Chemistry; strukturkemi;

    Abstract : Predicting the three-dimensional (3D) structure of proteins is a central problem in biology. These computationally predicted 3D protein structures have been successfully applied in many fields of biomedicine, e.g. family assignments and drug discovery. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cotranslational protein biogenesis in Escherichia coli monitored by force profile analysis

    Author : Felix Nicolaus; Gunnar von Heijne; Ross Dalbey; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; cotranslational protein biogenesis; membrane protein; soluble protein; transmembrane helices; force profile analysis; arrest peptide; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Proteins are a diverse class of biomolecules that carry out many essential functions across all organisms. They can either be found in aqueous compartments or embedded in biological membranes of the cell and are called soluble or membrane proteins, respectively. READ MORE

  3. 3. From protein sequence to structural instability and disease

    Author : Lixiao Wang; Uwe Sauer; Sven Hovmöller; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : protein domain; remote homologue; intrinsically disorder unstructured proteins; protein function; point mutation; protein family protein stability; HMMs; CRFs; SVMs;

    Abstract : A great challenge in bioinformatics is to accurately predict protein structure and function from its amino acid sequence, including annotation of protein domains, identification of protein disordered regions and detecting protein stability changes resulting from amino acid mutations. The combination of bioinformatics, genomics and proteomics becomes essential for the investigation of biological, cellular and molecular aspects of disease, and therefore can greatly contribute to the understanding of protein structures and facilitating drug discovery.

  4. 4. Mapping and annotating the mammalian body-wide protein-coding gene expression

    Author : Max Karlsson; Mathias Uhlén; Linn Fagerberg; Julio Saez-Rodriguez; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein; protein-coding; genes; annotation; atlas; scRNA-Seq; RNA-Seq; transcriptomics; proteomics; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : A central aim of fundamental research is to create conditions necessary for fueling further research and innovation. Our understanding of basic biology is central for future developments of tools for diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Membrane and secretory protein production in Escherichia coli

    Author : Alexandros Karyolaimos; Jan-Willem de Gier; Matthew DeLisa; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; recombinant protein; tunable protein production; cytoplasmic membrane; periplasm; signal peptide; force profile analysis; co-translational folding; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Escherichia coli (E. coli) is the most widely used bacterium for the production of recombinant proteins. However, the production of proteins in its cytoplasmic membrane or periplasm is challenging. Therefore, the aim of this doctoral thesis was to develop setups for enhancing the production of membrane and secretory proteins in E. READ MORE
