  1. 1. Protein folding without loops and charges

    Författare :Martin Kurnik; Mikael Oliveberg; Kevin W. Plaxco; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein folding; folding cooperativity; protein aggregation; protein charges; protein engineering; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Going down the folding funnel, proteins may sample a wide variety of conformations, some being outright detrimental to the organism. Yet, the vast majority of polypeptide molecules avoid such pitfalls. Not only do they reach the native minimum of the energy landscape; they do so via blazingly fast, biased, routes. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Substrate specificity of protein kinases studied with synthetic peptides

    Författare :Reet Toomik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; protein kinase A; protein kinase C; substrate; peptide; specificity; stereospecificity; assay; SPOTS peptides; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medical and Physiological Chemistry; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concentrates on the substrate specificities of protein kinases A and C (PKA, PKC). Synthetic peptides are used for that purpose, both in soluble and cellulose membrane-bound form. The, stereospecificity of both protein kinases was studied with D-amino acid containing synthetic peptides. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Characterization and Engineering of Protein-Protein Interactions Involving PDZ Domains

    Författare :Andreas Karlsson; Per Jemth; Daniel Otzen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; intrinsically disordered protein regions; PDZ domain; binding kinetics; protein engineering; interaction mechanism; specificity; PDZbody; Chemistry with specialization in Biophysics; Kemi med inriktning mot biofysik;

    Sammanfattning : The work presented in this thesis has contributed with knowledge to several aspects of protein-protein interaction involving PDZ domains. A substantial amount of our proteome contains regions that are intrinsically disordered but fold upon ligand interaction. LÄS MER

  4. 4. NMR Studies of Bacterial Albumin-Binding Modules

    Författare :Maria U Johansson; Biofysikalisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fysikalisk kemi; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi; Physical chemistry; three-helix bundle; protein structure; protein PAB; protein-protein interactions; protein G; protein dynamics; NMR; module shuffling; GA module; evolution; albumin-binding; bacterial surface proteins;

    Sammanfattning : Peptostreptococcus magnus and group C/G streptococci are Gram-positive cocci that are part of the normal flora and reside in more or less the same locations in the host. Protein G of group C/G streptococci was originally described as binding IgGFc of several species and later shown to also bind human serum albumin and albumins from various animal species. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Structural Studies of Binding Proteins: Investigations of Flexibility, Specificity and Stability

    Författare :Ulrika Magnusson; Sherry L. Mowbray; Anthony J. Wikinson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Periplasmic binding protein; X-ray crystallography; conformational change; acidophile; protein specificity; protein structure; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Binding proteins are present both in gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. They are the recognition components of the ABC transport systems that transport different nutrients into the cell, and are in some cases also involved in chemotaxis. LÄS MER
