  1. 1. Using de novo design proteins to explore tyrosine radicals and cation-π interactions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Bruce W. Berry; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tyrosine; radicals; cation-pi interactions; de novo designed proteins; biochemistry; biophysics; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Redox cofactors and amino-acid free radicals play important roles in biology. Although many of the same cofactors and amino acids that form these radicals are found across a broad range of biological systems, identical cofactors can have different reduction potentials. The local environment plays a role in defining these redox potentials.

  2. 2. Limonene Hydroperoxides in Allergic Contact Dermatitis. Radical Formation, Sensitizing Capacity and Immunogenic Complex Formation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Staffan Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; allergic contact dermatitis; contact allergy; immunogenic complex; limonene hydroperoxides; local lymph node assay; patch testing; radicals; sensitizing capacity; skin;

    Abstract : Contact allergy to fragrance compounds is an increasing problem in the western countries today. R-Limonene is one of the most common fragrance compounds; it is used in hygiene products and cosmetics as well as in industrial products such as hand cleansers and degreasers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of Laser Techniques for Combustion Studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Marcus Aldén; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1983]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Keywords: Laser-induced fluorescence; Raman Spectroscopy; Coherent anti-Stokes Raman Scattering CARS ; flames; laserspectroscopy; dye laser; lidar; remote sensing; combustion; air pollution; radicals; optical multichannel analyzer.;

    Abstract : The aim for this work has been to increase the applicability of laser spectroscopy techniques for studies of combustion processes, both what regards in-flame experiments, exhaust-gas analysis and remote sensing of the atmosphere. Raman spectroscopy has been used for analysis of exhaust gases from flames, model fires of wood and for inflame measurements. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hydrogen Bonded Phenols as Models for Redox-Active Tyrosines in Enzymes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för organisk kemi

    Author : Josefin Utas; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electron transfer; photosystem II; radicals; imidazole; hydrogen bonding; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the impact of hydrogen bonding on the properties of phenols. The possibility for tyrosine to form hydrogen bonds to other amino acids has been found to be important for its function as an electron transfer mediator in a number of important redox enzymes.

  5. 5. Free radicals in cellular pathology : Mechanisms behind lipofucin formation in cultured myocardial cells

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Rasi Marzabadi Massoud; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1991]

    Abstract : Lipofuscin, or age pigment, may be defined as a yellowish-brown,autofluorescent, protein and lipid containing pigment that accumulates inthe lysosomal vacuome of a variety of post-mitotic cell types in man andanimals during aging. Lipofuscin is the end product of peroxidation,fragmentation and polymerization of proteins and lipids. READ MORE
