Sammanfattning : As one of the major classes of materials that is relevant to biological function of our daily life, proteins are highly interesting in both biological and material science. Self-assembled protein amyloid nanostructures have been considered not only as aggregates in pathological tissue, but also as a kind of advanced one dimension materials in material science perspective due to their favorable characteristics including high aspect ratio, abundant surface charge groups, high stability, and tunable surface properties.

2. Bioanalysis using capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry : Applied on proteins, protein nanofibrils and polyvinyl alcohol microbubbles
Sammanfattning : The sequencing of the genome of various species, including the human species, have led to increased understanding about how a protein structure is generated, and how specific structures are related to the proteins’ functionality. In paper I and II of this thesis, the folding of proteins in vitro to form hierarchical nanostructures, which in vivo often have a pathological effect, have been studied. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : As the ribosomal synthesis of a nascent polypeptide progresses, the chain immediately undergoes folding into α-helical and β-strand secondary structure elements. While the protein matures, the polypeptide collapses into higher order constructs that ultimately form the native protein state. LÄS MER
4. Nanostructured Biopolymeric Materials : Hydrodynamic Assembly, Mechanical Properties and Bio-Functionalities
Sammanfattning : The need for high-end multifunctional materials from renewable resources has evolved given a rapidly increasing population and accompanying environmental concerns. Scalable assembly methods are and will be imperative in designing high-performance environmentally friendly materials, requiring new processes allowing control on all hierarchical levels. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cultivation of seaweed has been conducted for centuries in Asia, but is largely undeveloped in Sweden even though there is potential for this industry. Seaweed offers benefits compared with land-based biomass cultivation. LÄS MER
