    Abstract : Free fatty acid (FFA) levels are increased in many obese subjects. High FFA levels stimulate the pancreatic beta-cells but have negative long-term effects. In obese children with high FFA levels circulating insulin concentration is high early in life but decline with age precipitating the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). READ MORE

  2. 2. Using peptide-phage display to capture conditional motif-based interactions

    Abstract : This thesis explores the world of conditional protein-protein interactions using combinatorial peptide-phage display and proteomic peptide-phage display (ProP-PD). Large parts of proteins in the human proteome do not fold in to well-defined structures instead they are intrinsically disordered. READ MORE
