  1. 1. Structural modeling of membrane transporter proteins

    Author : Jonas Almqvist; Sven Hovmöller; David van der Spoel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; membrane protein structure; membrane protein crystallography; membrane protein structure modelling; Structural biochemistry; Strukturbiokemi; strukturkemi; Structural Chemistry;

    Abstract : A fundamental process of all living organisms - the transport of molecules across cellular membranes through membrane transport proteins - is investigated.After a brief review of general properties of biological membranes follows a recollection of the major methods of membrane transport that Nature utilizes (Chapter 1).

  2. 2. Imaging and modeling the cardiovascular system

    Author : Elira Maksuti; Michael Broomé; Anna Bjällmark; Matilda Larsson; Martin Ugander; Patrick Segers; KTH; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cardiac pumping; diastolic function; hemodynamics; modeling; simulation; arterial stiffness; ultrasound; shear wave elastography.; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cardiac pumping;

    Abstract : Understanding cardiac pumping function is crucial to guiding diagnosis, predicting outcomes of interventions, and designing medical devices that interact with the cardiovascular system.  Computer simulations of hemodynamics can show how the complex cardiovascular system is influenced by changes in single or multiple parameters and can be used to test clinical hypotheses.

  3. 3. Major Intrinsic Proteins - Structure, function, interactions

    Author : ANDREAS KIRSCHT; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aquaporin; membrane proteins; crystallography; stopped-flow; molecular dynamics; structure modeling;

    Abstract : Major intrinsic proteins, also referred to as aquaporins (AQPs) are localized in membranes of all domains of life to increase the permeability to water or other small, polar molecules. Several monophyletic groups can be discerned in this large and divergent protein superfamily. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modeling the effects of knots in Structural Timber

    Author : Christina Foley; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material technology; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; three-dimensional fiber paradigm; fiber deviation; knots; annual growth layer; material matrix; knot bump; structural timber; load carrying capacity; Materiallära; critical knot; knot distance ratio; local principal material directions; stiffness; materialteknik;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the pursued research is to increase knowledge of the effects of knots in structural timber so that characteristics of weaker timber may be determined and applied to improve current grading techniques. In the process, a three-dimensional fiber paradigm was established, which describes variations of local principle material axes in timber containing knots. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermodynamical and structural properties of proteins and their role in food allergy

    Author : Louise Rundqvist; Göran Larsson; Göran Karlsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Protein folding; NMR; Food allergy; allergen; protein interactions; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Proteins are important building blocks of all living organisms. They are composed of a defined sequence of different amino acids, and fold into a specific three-dimensional, ordered structure. The three-dimensional structure largely determines the function of the protein, but protein function always requires motion. READ MORE
