  1. 1. The Membrane Proteome : Evolution, Characteristics and Classification

    Författare :Markus Sällman Almén; Helgi Schiöth; Robert Fredriksson; Marc Robinson-Rechavi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Membrane proteins; Membrane proteome; molecular evolution; GPCRs; Dispanins; IFITM; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Sammanfattning : Membrane proteins are found in all kingdoms of life and are essential for cellular interactions with the environment. Although a large research effort have been put into this group many membrane proteins remains uncharacterized, both in terms of function and evolutionary history. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Membrane-bound proteins : Characterization, evolution, and functional analysis

    Författare :Misty M. Attwood; Helgi B. Schiöth; Arne Elofsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transmembrane protein; alpha-helical membrane protein; evolution membrane proteins; 3TM; 4TM; 5TM; trispanin; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Sammanfattning : Alpha-helical transmembrane proteins are important components of many essential cell processes including signal transduction, transport of molecules across membranes, protein and membrane trafficking, and structural and adhesion activities, amongst others. Their involvement in critical networks makes them the focus of interest in investigating disease pathways, as candidate drug targets, and in evolutionary analyses to identify homologous protein families and possible functional activities.

  3. 3. The Ins and Outs of Membrane Proteins : Topology Studies of Bacterial Membrane Proteins

    Författare :Mikaela Rapp; Gunnar von Heijne; Christopher Tate; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; membrane protein; topology; dual topology; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : α-helical membrane proteins comprise about a quarter of all proteins in a cell and carry out a wide variety of essential cellular functions. This thesis is focused on topology analyses of bacterial membrane proteins. The topology describes the two-dimensional structural arrangement of a protein relative to the membrane. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mapping the human proteome using bioinformatic methods

    Författare :Linn Fagerberg; Mathias Uhlén; Alvis Brazma; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; proteome; transcriptome; bioinformatics; membrane protein prediction; subcellular localization; protein expression level; cell line; immunohistochemistry; immunofluorescence; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Sammanfattning : The fundamental goal of proteomics is to gain an understanding of the expression and function of the proteome on the level of individual proteins, on the level of defined cell types and on the level of the entire organism. In this thesis, the human proteome is explored using membrane protein topology prediction methods to define the human membrane proteome and by global protein expression profiling, which relies on a complex study of the location and expression levels of proteins in tissues and cells.

  5. 5. Mass Spectrometry-based Neuroproteomics : Deciphering the Human Brain Proteome

    Författare :Sravani Musunuri; Jonas Bergquist; Ganna Shevchenko; Jean-Charles Sanchez; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Brain; Proteomics; Mass spectrometry; Alzheimer s disease; Traumatic brain injury; Membrane proteins; Sample preparation; Kemi med inriktning mot analytisk kemi; Chemistry with specialization in Analytical Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Mammalian brain is challenging to study due to its heterogeneity and complexity. However, recent advances in molecular imaging, genomics and proteomics have contributed significantly to achieve insights into molecular basis of brain function and pathogenesis of neurological disorders.
