  2. 2. Enzymes in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis MEP and CoA Pathways Targeted for Structure-Based Drug Design

    Författare :Christofer Björkelid; T. Alwyn Jones; Torsten Unge; Sherry L. Mowbray; William N. Hunter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tuberculosis; Mycobacterium tuberculosis; MEP pathway; CoA pathway; drug development; crystal structure; DXR; IspD; PanK; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Molecular Biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Tuberculosis, caused by the pathogenic bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is one of the most widespread and deadly infectious diseases today. Treatment of tuberculosis relies on antibiotics that were developed more than 50 years ago. These are now becoming ineffective due to the emergence of antibiotic resistant strains of the bacteria.

  3. 3. Structural Studies of a Xyloglucan Endotransglycosylase from Populus tremula x tremuloides and Three Conserved Hypothetical Proteins from Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Författare :Patrik Johansson; Alwyn Jones; Sherry Mowbray; Pedro Alzari; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Cell and molecular biology; xyloglucan endotransglycosylase; Mycobacterium tuberculosis; epoxide hydrolase; fatty acid metabolism; fatty acid oxidation; crystallography; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the structural studies of four different proteins from two organisms. Xyloglucan endotransglycosylases, XETs, are involved in plant cell wall expansion and remodeling by splitting and reconnecting xyloglucan-cellulose crosslinks. The first crystal structure of a XET enzyme has been determined to 1.8 Å. LÄS MER
