  1. 1. Shaking the EF-Hand. Dynamics and Ion-Binding to Calmodulin and Calbindin D9k

    Författare :Anders Malmendal; Biofysikalisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; magnesium; line shape; ion binding; EF-hand; cooperativity; conformational exchange; chemical shift; calmodulin; calcium; calbindin D9k; allostery; backbone dynamics; NMR; relaxation; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : The work described in this thesis represents a biophysical approach, mainly using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, to investigate the impact of magnesium ions on the EF-hand calcium-binding proteins calmodulin and calbindin D9k, as well as the dynamics of these proteins at low calcium levels. The x-ray structure of magnesium-saturated calbindin D9k shows a magnesium ion in only one of the two ion binding sites. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The effect of sequence truncation and amino-acid substitutions on the biophysical properties of protein S and calbindin D9k

    Författare :Karin Julenius; Biofysikalisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; surface plasmon resonance; fluorescence spectroscopy; circular dichroism spectroscopy; NMR spectroscopy; hydrophobic effect; protein stability; dimerization; cooperativity; calcium binding; EGF-module; EF-hand; calbindin D9k; protein S; synthet; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Protein S is a modular protein and a cofactor in the protein C anticoagulant system. It consists of a Gla-module, a thrombin-sensitive loop, four EGF-modules and a SHBG-like module. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Protein Interactions: Electrostatics and Ligand Binding

    Författare :Ingemar André; Biofysikalisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biophysics; Molekylär biofysik; secondary structure formation; protein GB1; pKa values; pH stability; NMR; electrostatic interactions; M proteins; calbindin D9k; calcium binding; cooperativity; calmodulin; calbindin D28k;

    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

  4. 4. Protein Complexity via Non-Native States: Binding, Stability, and Structural Studies of Calbindin D9k and HAMLET (Human alpha-lactalbumin Made LEthal to Tumor cells)

    Författare :Jonas Fast; Biofysikalisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; apoptosis; oleic acid; HAMLET; kinetic trap alpha-lactalbumin; calbindin; calcium; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Sammanfattning : Using optical spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and differential scanning Calorimetry (DSC), I have studied two different calcium binding proteins that can form kinetically trapped altered states. Calcium is very important in numerous biological processes such as blood coagulation, signal transduction, muscle contraction and bone formation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Structural studies of metal-binding proteins revealing dynamic behaviour

    Författare :Maria Håkansson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; Molekylär biofysik; Molecular biophysics; zinc; magnesium; superantigen; calbindin D9k; X-ray crystallography; staphylococcal enterotoxin; structure; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Sammanfattning : The Mg2+ and Mn2+ structures of calbindin D9k have been determined and they reveal a conformational change compared to the structures of apo and (Ca2+)2-calbindin D9k. These findings are unique, since normally calcium and not magnesium is known to induce conformational changes of EF-hand proteins. LÄS MER
