    Sammanfattning : The extracellular matrix is (ECM) is a network of large, structural proteins and polysaccharides, important for cellular behavior, tissue development and maintenance. Present thesis describes work exploring ECM as scaffolds for tissue engineering by manipulating cells cultured in vitro or by influencing ECM expression in vivo. LÄS MER

  2. 17. Evolution of the G protein-coupled receptor signaling system : Genomic and phylogenetic analyses

    Författare :Arunkumar Krishnan; Helgi Schiöth; Torgeir Hvidsten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; GPCRs; G proteins; Sensory system; Signal transduction; Olfaction; Chemosensation; Hemichordates; Sponges; Porifera; Bilaterians; Holozoans; Fungi; Opisthokonts; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Sammanfattning : Signal transduction pathways mediated by G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and their intracellular coupling partners, the heterotrimeric G proteins, are crucial for several physiological functions in eukaryotes, including humans. This thesis describes a broad genomic survey and extensive comparative phylogenetic analysis of GPCR and G protein families from a wide selection of eukaryotes. LÄS MER

  3. 18. Protein Folding, Binding and Evolution : PDZ domains and paralemmins as model systems

    Författare :Greta Hultqvist; Per Jemth; Ruth Nussinov; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein folding; evolution; binding; allostery; Paralemmin; PDZ domain;

    Sammanfattning : Proteins present at the synapse need to be multitasking in order to perform all vital functions in this limited space. In this thesis I have analyzed the function and evolution of such proteins, focusing on the PDZ domain and the paralemmin family. The PDZ domains bind to a wide variety of interaction partners.

  4. 19. Molecular methods for microbial ecology : Developments, applications and results

    Författare :Lucas Sinclair; Alexander Eiler; Josh Neufeld; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; microbiology; metagenomics; ecology; metabolism; Bioinformatik; Bioinformatics;

    Sammanfattning : Recent developments in DNA sequencing technology allow the study of microbial ecology at unmatched detail. To fully embrace this revolution, an important avenue of research is the development of bioinformatic tools that enable scientists to leverage and manipulate the exceedingly large amounts of data produced.
