  1. 1. Combined structural methods to characterize an oligomeric small heat shock protein Hsp21

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Division of Biochemistry and Structural Biology

    Author : Gudrun Rutsdottir; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-05]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Small heat shock proteins; chaperones; crosslinking mass spectrometry; Stable isotope labeling; quantification; small angle X-ray scattering; cryo-electron microscopy; combined structural methods; plant stress;

    Abstract : Small heat shock proteins (sHsps) are found in all organisms and evolved early in the history of life, prior to the divergence of the three domains of life (Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya). Their malfunction is connected to several different diseases in humans, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Maria Dolores Herman Moreno; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; proteins; crystal structure; apoptosis; cancer; CoFi-Blot; kinases; lipid signaling; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Structural biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi 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

  3. 3. Computational Methods in Conceptual Structural Design

    University dissertation from Lund University. Faculty of Engineering (LTH), Division of Structural Mechanics

    Author : Vedad Alic; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; conceptual design; conceptual structural design; ground-borne vibrations; form finding; optimization; dynamic relaxation; graphic statics; reciprocal figures; strut-and-tie; finite element method; isogeometric analysis; NURBS; CAD; numerical modelling;

    Abstract : Conceptual design is the first phase in the design process in which all the requirements and design objectives are synthesized into conceptual alternatives. In practice today, major decisions regarding the buildings function, massing, and overall form are usually made during the first phase. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Nina Forsgren; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus gordonii; X-ray crystallography; surface adhesin; dental plaque; structural biology; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Structural biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi 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

  5. 5. Using direct manipulation for real-time structural design exploration

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Daniel Åkesson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Interactive structural analysis; Very direct manipulation; Interactive structural form finding;

    Abstract : Before a new structure can be built, it must be designed. This design phase is a very important step in the building process. The total cost of the structure and its structural performance are largely dependent on the structural design process. The impact of decisions on the design process is initially high and declines as the design matures. READ MORE
