  1. 1. Studies on Tissue Factor with Focus on Cell Signaling and Cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Oskar Eriksson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tissue Factor; blood coagulation; cell signaling; protease; mass spectrometry; immunohistochemistry; colorectal cancer; apoptosis; Eph receptor; Klinisk kemi; Clinical Chemistry; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : This thesis have explored the functions of the protein Tissue Factor (TF), which together with its ligand coagulation factor VII/VIIa (FVII/FVIIa) forms a proteolytic complex that functions in initiation of blood coagulation and activation of cell signaling.In paper I, the mechanisms behind the observation that TF/FVIIa signaling protects cells from apoptosis were further investigated.

    Abstract : Many efforts have been made to control the AIDS epidemic. Extensive studies have been done on the biology, biochemistry, and structural biology of HIV in the search for antiviral drugs. The viral-encoded enzymes reverse transcriptase and protease have been main targets for drug design. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cyclic Sulfamide HIV-1 Protease Inhibitors Design, Synthesis and Modelling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Ax; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical chemistry; AIDS; HIV; protease inhibitor; aspartic protease; molecular modelling; 3D-QSAR; CoMFA; Farmaceutisk kemi; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical chemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk kemi;

    Abstract : Ten years ago, the first protease inhibitor targeting the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was approved for clinical use. Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), which combined protease and reverse transcriptase inhibitors, quickly became the standard therapy for treating patients infected with HIV and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

  4. 4. Design and synthesis of HIV-1 protease inhibitors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mathias Alterman; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical chemistry; HIV-1; Protease; Inhibitors; Farmaceutisk kemi; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical chemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk kemi; Organic Pharmaceutical Chemistry; organisk farmaceutisk kemi;

    Abstract : Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the causative agent of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The C2-symmetric HIV-1 protease is one of the prime targets for chemotherapy in the treatment of the HIV infection. Inhibition of HIV-1 protease leads to immature and non-infectious viral particles.

  5. 5. Studies on secreted cysteine proteases of Streptococcus pyogenes IdeS and SpeB

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Reine Vindebro; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Streptococcus pyogenes; Group A Streptococci; GAS; virulence factor; IdeS; SpeB; cysteine protease; protease inhibitor; IgG; immune evasion; molekylär bioteknik inst f molekylärbiologi ; Molecular Biotechnology;

    Abstract : The pathogen Streptococcus pyogenes is a significant cause of human morbidity and mortality. Most of the work in this thesis is focused on streptococcal virulence factor IdeS, but the thesis also features work on SpeB, another streptococcal virulence factor. READ MORE
