  1. 1. α-Synuclein Fibril Formation and the Effects of Lipid Membranes

    Författare :Ricardo Gaspar; Fysikalisk kemi; []

    Sammanfattning : Amyloid protein aggregation results in major disturbances of cellular processes in humans. The most common amyloid-related disorders are Alzheimer´s disease and Parkinson´s disease. Parkinson´s disease is charaterized by the formation of protein-rich aggregates that are deposited in neurons, termed Lewy bodies and Lewy neurites. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Immune cells, such as B and T cells, fight pathogens infecting the human body. To fulfil this function the immune cells need to form a contact during which different membrane proteins play an important role. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Biomarkers aiming at cancer risk estimation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

    Författare :Hans Helleberg; Kimmo Peltonen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical Biology; fysikalisk biologi;

    Sammanfattning : Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), a family of compounds that are formed in incomplete combustion of organic matter, occur as general pollutants in air and food. Exposure to PAH is, according to preliminary estimates, associated with non-acceptable cancer risks showing the need for improved data to be used in risk estimation. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Knowledge of dynamics in protein is very important in the description of protein function and molecular recognition. The thesis investigates protein dynamics on time-scales from milli- to sub-nanosecond, with focus on the latter, using NMR spin relaxation experiments on two proteins, the 138-residue carbohydrate recognition domain of galectin-3 (Gal3C) and the 56-residue B1 domain of bacterial protein G (PGB1).
