  1. 1. Structural and biochemical insights into biosynthesis and degradation of N-glycans

    Författare :Tom Reichenbach; Christina Divne; David Drew; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; N-glycan; biosynthesis; degradation; glycosyltransferase; glycoside hydrolase; biofuel; enzyme; membrane protein; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Sammanfattning : Carbohydrates are a primary energy source for all living organisms, but importantly, they also participate in a number of life-sustaining biological processes, e.g. cell signaling and cell-wall synthesis. The first part of the thesis examines glycosyltransferases that play a crucial role in the biosynthesis of N-glycans. LÄS MER

  2. 2. A New Look into Protein C Inhibitor : Posttranslational Modifications and their Functions

    Författare :Wei Sun; Sophia Schedin Weiss; Hakon Leffler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Protein C inhibitor; posttranslational modifications; N-glycan; O-glycan; mass spectrometry; factor Xa; thrombin; prostate specific antigen; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : The influences of posttranslational modifications on the functions of the versatile serpin protein C inhibitor (PCI) were studied. PCI is a serine protease inhibitor that is expressed in many tissues and secreted to various fluids in human, including blood plasma, seminal plasma, and urine. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Synthesis of oligosaccharides and conformational analysis by NMR spectroscopy

    Författare :Jerk Rönnols; Göran Widmalm; Eszter Borbas; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : The first part of this thesis describes investigations of the conformations of six N-linked pseudodisaccharides (Paper I), which were synthesized as glycosidase inhibitor candidates, and 10 β-D-xylopyranoside derivatives bearing hydrophobic aglycons (Paper II), by NMR spectroscopic methods. In paper I the ring conformations of 2- and 3-amino-α-D-altropyranosides, and ω torsions of altrosides, glucosides and mannosides were described, in neutral and protonated states. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Immune recognition and early virus-cell interactions. Glycobiological aspects on HIV-1 gp120

    Författare :Gregers J. Gram; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 HIV-1 ; glycoprotein; gp120; glycosylation.;

    Sammanfattning : Human immunodeficiency virus types 1 and 2 (HIV-1 and HIV-2) are the etiological agents of AIDS in humans. The viral envelope glycoproteins gp120 and gp41 mediate the early virus-cell interaction of HIV with the target cells. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Degradation of wood polysaccharides by fungal glycoside hydrolases

    Författare :Torny Eriksson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Penicillium brasilianum; ethanol; cellulose; wood polysaccharides; Man5A hemicellulase; cellulase; endoglucanase; cellobiohydrolase; Cel7B; Cel7A; Trichoderma reesei; glycoside hydrolase; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Sammanfattning : The enzymatic degradation of wood polysaccharides such as cellulose and hemicellulose is an important process in nature. In addition, cellulases and hemicellulases can be used in industrial applications. Fuel ethanol can potentially be produced from wood by enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose followed by yeast fermentation of the formed sugars. LÄS MER
