Sammanfattning : Biomaterials are materials that are specifically designed to be in contact with biological systems and have for a long time been used in medicine. Examples of biomaterials range from sophisticated prostheses used for replacing outworn body parts to ordinary contact lenses. Currently it is possible to create biomaterials that can e.g. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Liposomes are widely used in drug delivery to improve drug efficacy and to reduce side effects. For liposome-encapsulated drugs to become bioavailable and provide a therapeutic effect they must be released, which typically is a slow process that primarily relies on passive diffusion, liposome rupture or endocytotic uptake.

Sammanfattning : The general objective of the present thesis work was to examine 3-dimensional structure as well as the motional properties of two different types of two-domain proteins by solution-state NMR. One of the major tasks of this thesis work was to investigate the domain orientation of these molecules by employing residual dipolar couplings (RDC) which can be used as orientational restraints for increasing the accuracy of protein structures determined by NMR.

Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with Ca2+ binding to proteins, electrostatic interactions in and between proteins as well as inter- and intramolecular interactions. A computer program was developed to determine Ca2+ binding constants from experimental titration data of proteins. LÄS MER
5. Protein Dynamics Studied by NMR Spin Relaxation. Conformational Transitions of a Calmodulin Mutant
Sammanfattning : Binding of calcium to the protein calmodulin leads to molecular reorganization that enables interaction with target peptides and activation of downstream processes. I have studied the dynamics of the calcium-loaded form of a C-terminal calmodulin mutant (E140Q-Tr2C) using NMR spin relaxation experiments. LÄS MER
