Sammanfattning : Amyloidoses comprise a group of diseases where normal or mutated protein precipitates into amyloid fibrils. The deposition of fibrils causes dysfunction of organs and toxicity to nervous tissue. Up to date, 24 different proteins and peptides are known to be able to form amyloid fibrils. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The human host defense peptide LL-37 has an essential role in the first line of defense against invading pathogens. This cathelicidin is mainly produced by immune cells and epithelial cells aligning the mucosal areas and is normally upregulated upon infection and inflammation. LÄS MER
3. Structural studies of heterogeneous amyloid species of lysozymes and de novo protein albebetin and their cytotoxicity
Sammanfattning : A number of diseases are linked to protein folding problems which lead to the deposition of insoluble protein plaques in the brain or other organs. These diseases include prion diseases such as Creutzfeld-Jakob disease, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and type II (non-insulin dependent) diabetes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Selenium is an essential trace element, present in the 21st amino acid selenocysteine, which is specifically incorporated into selenoproteins. Today, there are 25 identified selenoproteins in humans, whereof many comprises redox active functions to uphold the intracellular redox balance. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The development of resistance by tumour cells to chemotherapeutic agents is a major problem in cancer treatments. One way to counter this is to find compounds with cytotoxic mechanisms other than those of drugs in clinical use today. LÄS MER
