  1. 1. Proximity Extension Assay : a universal tool for proteomics in precision medicine

    Author : Phathutshedzo M. Muthelo; Ulf Landegren; Jochen Schwenk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Proximity Extension Assay; Precision medicine; Assay development; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Precision medicine aims to utilise biomarkers to ensure the right treatment is given to the right patient at the right time. In pursuit of this goal, sensitive protein detection is essential to improve opportunities for discovery, verification, validation and development of valuable protein biomarkers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proximity Ligation : Transforming protein analysis into nucleic acid detection through proximity-dependent ligation of DNA sequence tagged protein-binders

    Author : Simon Fredriksson; Larry Gold; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Molecular medicine; Proximity ligation; proteomics; SELEX; antibody; DNA microarray; Molekylärmedicin; Molecular medicine genetics and pathology ; Molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; Molecular Medicine; molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ;

    Abstract : A novel technology for protein detection, proximity ligation, has been developed along with improved methods for in situ synthesis of DNA microarrays. Proximity ligation enables a specific and quantitative transformation of proteins present in a sample into nucleic acid sequences. READ MORE

    Abstract : Chronic pain affects 20 % of the global population, causes suffering, is difficult to treat, and constitutes a large economic burden for society. So far, the characterization of molecular mechanisms of chronic pain-like behaviors in animal models has not translated into effective treatments. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development and Application of Proximity Assays for Proteome Analysis in Medicine

    Author : Felipe Marques Souza de Oliveira; Masood Kamali-Moghaddam; Ulf Landegren; Mats Gullberg; Janne Lehtiö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Solid-phase proximity ligation assay; post-translational modifications; glycosylation; phosphorylation; Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; immunoassay and rolling circle amplification; Proximity Extension Assay; inflammation protein biomarkers; autoantibodies; autoimmune disease;

    Abstract : Along with proteins, a myriad of different molecular biomarkers, such as post-translational modifications and autoantibodies, could be used in an attempt to improve disease detection and progression. In this thesis, I build on several iterations of the proximity ligation assay to develop and apply new adaptable methods to facilitate detection of proteins, autoantibodies and post-translational modifications.
