  1. 1. Structural studies of proteins in apoptosis and lipid signaling

    Author : Maria Dolores Herman Moreno; Pär Nordlund; Markus Gruetter; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; proteins; crystal structure; apoptosis; cancer; CoFi-Blot; kinases; lipid signaling; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; Structural Biology; strukturbiologi;

    Abstract : Signaling pathways control the fate of the cell. For example, they promote cell survival or commit the cell to death (apoptosis) in response to cell injury or developmental stimuli, decisions, which are vital for the proper development and functioning of metazoan. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural studies of the surface adhesin SspB from Streptococcus gordonii

    Author : Nina Forsgren; Karina Persson; Inger Andersson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus gordonii; X-ray crystallography; surface adhesin; dental plaque; structural biology; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : Surface proteins on microorganisms that build up the oral biofilm are key players in the formation of the biofilm. Antigen I/II proteins are surface adhesins found on virtually all oral streptococci and share a conserved multi-domain architecture. These adhesins bind surface components on other bacteria and on host cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fighting Tuberculosis – : Structural Studies of Three Mycobacterial Proteins

    Author : Alina Castell; Torsten Unge; Manfred Weiss; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mycobacterium tuberculosis; Rv0216; Rv0130; Mycobacterium smegmatis; branched chain aminotransferase; X-ray crystallography; fatty acid metabolism; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the cloning, purification, crystallization, and structural studies of two unknown proteins from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and of an aminotransferase from Mycobacterium smegmatis. Structural knowledge of these proteins is of highest interest for structure-based drug design, which is one of the approaches that can be used in order to fight tuberculosis (TB). READ MORE

  4. 4. Structural and functional properties of transthyretin

    Author : Anders Karlsson; A. Elisabeth Sauer-Eriksson; Salam Al-Karadaghi; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transthyretin; Amyloidosis; X-ray crystallography; Protein structure; Protein; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi;

    Abstract : The hereditary transthyretin (TTR) amyloidoses are rare, and in severe cases, fatal disorders caused by mutations in the TTR gene. The clinical picture is diverse, involving neuropathies and myopathies, and mainly depends on the causative mutation and the sites and rates of amyloid deposition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural and Functional Studies of Gelsolin Family Proteins

    Author : Qing Ma; Robert Robinson; Roger Karlsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi;

    Abstract : The actin cytoskeleton is a complex structure that performs a wide range of cellular functions including: cell locomotion, cytokinesis, chemotaxis, signal transduction and apoptosis. The coordinated assembly and disassembly of actin filaments is controlled by a multitude of proteins (ABPs) in the cell. READ MORE
