Sammanfattning : Soluble intermediates of the amyloid-β (Aβ) aggregation process are suggested to play a central role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) by causing synaptic dysfunction and neuronal loss. In this thesis, soluble Aβ aggregates have been studied with a particular focus on the Aβ protofibril, which has served as the antigen for developing conformation dependent monoclonal antibodies.

Sammanfattning : Denna avhandling presenterar experimentella studier av polyelektrolytadsorption på motsatt laddade ytor, där substrat av både kiseloxid och blekt barrsulfatmassa har använts. Ett huvudsakligt syfte med denna forskning var att karaktärisera konformationen hos adsorberade skikt av katjonisk polyakrylamid (CPAM) i jämförelse med katjonisk dextran (Cdextran) och relatera denna information till inbindningskapaciteten av kolloidal kiselsyra.

Sammanfattning : Surfactants and polymers are frequently used as stabilizers in colloidal dispersions. Depending on their solubility and the interactions in their local environment, their tendency to remain adsorbed on a surface will differ. LÄS MER
4. Prediction of 3D structures of oligosaccharides. Methodological development and studies on saccharide antigens of interest for vaccine design
Sammanfattning : This thesis presents 3D structure predictions of five immunologically active surfacepolysaccharides of pathogens, which are of interest as targets for development of glycoconjugatevaccines. Furthermore it describes two methods which have been used for theconformational predictionsThe Shigella dysenteriae type 2 Oantigenwas predicted to form a compact helicalstructure with three repeating pentasaccharide units per turn.

Sammanfattning : The main focus of this thesis is on the ring conformations of carbohydrate molecules; how the conformational equilibria and the rates of the associated interconversions are affected by the molecular constitution and their surroundings.The conformational equilibria of a group of amine linked pseudodisaccharides, designed as potential glycosidase inhibitors, comprising α-D-altrosides are described in Chapter 3.
