  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; strukturkemi; Structural Chemistry;

    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. Ribosome and ribosomal RNA Structure : An experimental and computational analysis of expansion segments in eukaryotic ribosomal RNA

    Author : Gunnar Alkemar; Odd Nygård; Anders Virtanen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; eukaryotes; expansion segment; ribosomes; rRNA; secondary structure; structure of rRNA.; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; cellbiologi; Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Ribosomes are large ribonucleoprotein complexes which incorporate amino acids into peptide chains during translational process in all types of living cells. The eukaryotic ribosome is larger compared to its prokaryotic counterpart. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural Information and Hidden Markov Models for Biological Sequence Analysis

    Author : Jeanette Tångrot; Bo Kågström; Uwe H. Sauer; Erik Sonnhammer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HMM; structure alignment; protein structure; secondary structure; remote homologue; annotation; domain family; protein family; protein superfamily; protein fold recognition; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Bioinformatics is a fast-developing field, which makes use of computational methods to analyse and structure biological data. An important branch of bioinformatics is structure and function prediction of proteins, which is often based on finding relationships to already characterized proteins. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure, Mechanism, and Regulation of Sodium/Proton Exchangers

    Author : Iven Winkelmann; Drew David; Rajini Rao; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sodium proton exchange; SLC9; structure; secondary active transport; membrane protein; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Sodium/proton exchangers (NHEs) are secondary active transporters that are ubiquitously found in all kingdoms of life. They facilitate the exchange of protons for sodium ions or other inorganic ions across biological membranes, regulating pH, sodium levels, and osmotic pressure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structure-function relationships of hormone-sensitive lipase

    Author : Torben Österlund; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Proteins; mutagenesis; domain; fold; catalytic triad; lipase; structure; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : The primary role of hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL), an 84 kDa enzyme of 768 amino acids (in the rat protein), is to hydrolyse stored triacylglycerols in adipocytes of white adipose tissue. Catecholamines and insulin regulate lipolysis through cellular signalling. READ MORE
