  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. Therapeutic Cancer Vaccines Targeting Molecules Associated with Tumor Angiogenesis

    Author : Julia Femel; Anna-Karin Olsson; Grietje (Ingrid) Molema; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tumor; therapeutic; cancer vaccine; angiogenesis; vasculature; fibronectin; galectin-1; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi; Oncology; Onkologi; Biomedicinsk laboratorievetenskap; Biomedical Laboratory Science; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Induction of an endogenous antibody response by therapeutic vaccination could provide an alternative to cost-intensive monoclonal antibody-based treatments for cancer. Since the target of a cancer vaccine will most likely be a self-antigen, self-tolerance of the immune system must be circumvented. READ MORE

  3. 3. Separation Methods in Membrane Proteomics -Integration of Aqueous Two-Phase Partitioning for Enrichment and Pre-Fractionation

    Author : Henrik Everberg; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Membrane proteins; Proteins; metabolism; Biokemi; Metabolism; Biochemistry; Aqueous two-phase partitioning; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi; Proteomics;

    Abstract : The study of the protein complement of a genome is called proteomics. Proteomics can be defined as identification, quantification and characterization of a total set of proteins expressed at different time-points or under different cellular states to provide global information about biological processes.

  4. 4. Lysosomal network proteins as biomarkers and therapeutic targets in neurodegenerative disease

    Author : Andrea Boman; Katarina Kågedal; Samuel Svensson; Alan Sabirsh; Per Svenningsson; Oskar Hansson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cerebrospinal fluid CSF ; biomarkers; therapeutic targets; neurodegeneration; Alzheimer’s disease AD ; Parkinson’s disease PD ; Corticobasal degeneration CBD ; Progressive supraneuclear palsy PSP ; Lysosomes; Endosomes; Autophagy; LAMP-2; Lysozyme;

    Abstract : The pre-symptomatic stage of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) occurs several decades before the clinical onset. Changes in the lysosomal network, i.e. the autophagosomal, endosomal and lysosomal vesicular system, are among the first alterations observed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interindividual Variability of Drug Transport Proteins : Focus on Intestinal Pgp (ABCB1) and BCRP (ABCG2)

    Author : Gunilla Englund; Per Artursson; Håkan Melhus; Andreas Kindmark; Joseph W Polli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutics; membrane transport proteins; ATP-Binding Cassette Transporters; P-glycoprotein; Breast Cancer Resistance Protein; Interindividual variability; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics; Galenisk farmaci;

    Abstract : The appearance of adverse drug reactions is a common reason for hospitalization in Western countries. Research on underlying biological mechanisms for interindividual variability in drug response aims to better identify patients with exceptional genetic traits, disease conditions or risk of drug-drug interactions and thereby help to prevent adverse drug reactions.
