  2. 2. From Time-Averaged to Time-Resolved Crystallography: Studies on Superoxide Dismutase and Myoglobin

    Författare :Thomas Ursby; Lunds universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; superoxide dismutase; Bayesian statistics; electron difference maps; synchrotron; docking site; photolysis; myoglobin; Time-resolved crystallography; Laue; thermostability; Sulfolobus solfataricus; Molecular biophysics; Molekylär biofysik;

    Sammanfattning : We have studied protein motions with nanosecond time-resolved crystallography. The release of carbon monoxide from its complex with myoglobin (MbCO) was triggered by nanosecond laser pulses. X-ray data were collected with time delays ranging from 4 ns to 1.9 ms using the Laue method, at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Theoretical studies of porphyrin proteins

    Författare :Emma Sigfridsson; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molecular mechanics; quantum chemical calculations; electrostatic potential charges; atomic charges; ferrochelatase; cytochrome; myoglobin; Porphyrin; haem; QM MM; reorganisation energy; Theoretical chemistry; quantum chemistry; Teoretisk kemi; kvantkemi;

    Sammanfattning : Different aspects of porphyrin proteins have been studied with theoretical methods. For example, we have studied: - The importance of hydrogen bonds for the discrimination between carbon monoxide and molecular oxygen by myoglobin, the oxygen carrier in muscles, modelling the active site both in vacuum and in the protein matrix - The inner-sphere reorganisation energy during electron transfer for cytochromes compared to other electron-transfer proteins, such as blue copper proteins and Fe-S clusters - The role of porphyrin distortions in the reaction mechanism of ferrochelatase, the enzyme that inserts an iron ion into protoporphyrin IX to make haem - The interaction between different metal sites in ferrochelatase In these studies we have used density functional theory, classical force field methods, and a combination of quantum chemistry and molecular mechanics.

  4. 4. Redox Reactions of NO and O2 in Iron Enzymes : A Density Functional Theory Study

    Författare :Mattias Blomberg; Per Siegbahn; Adrian Mulholland; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; enzyme catalysis; redox reactions; cytochrome oxidase; nitric oxide reductase; hyponitrous acid anhydride; peroxynitrite; myoglobin; prostaglandin synthase; PGHS; NO; N2O; O2; CO; Chemical physics; Kemisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : In the present thesis the density functional B3LYP has been used to study reactions of NO and O2 in redox active enzymes.Reduction of nitric oxide (NO) to nitrous oxide (N2O) is an important part in the bacterial energy conservation (denitrification). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Molecular-dynamics simulations of polymeric surfaces for biomolecular applications

    Författare :Stela Andrea Muntean; M.A.J. Michels; M.W.J. Prins; A.V. Lyulin; Technische Universiteit Eindhoven; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polystyrenes; Molecular Dynamics; Computer Simulation; Water; Molecules; Atoms; Hydrophilicity; Biosensors; Myoglobin; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : In-vitro diagnostics plays a very important role in the present healthcare system. It consists of a large variety of medical devices designed to diagnose a medical condition by measuring a target molecule in a sample, such as blood or urine. LÄS MER
