  1. 1. Molecular principles of protein stability and protein-protein interactions

    Författare :Christofer Lendel; Per-Åke Nygren; Christopher M. Dobson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; affibody; binding thermodynamics; induced fit; molten globule; NMR spectroscopy; protein engineering; protein-protein interactions; protein stability; protein structure.; Structural biochemistry; Strukturbiokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Proteins with highly specific binding properties constitute the basis for many important applications in biotechnology and medicine. Immunoglobulins have so far been the obvious choice but recent advances in protein engineering have provided several novel constructs that indeed challenge antibodies. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Divisive structures : Two billions years of biofilament evolution

    Författare :Fredrik Hurtig; Ann-Christin Lindås; Lionel Guy; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Evolution; Archaea; Eukaryogenesis; ESCRT-III; Actin; Profilin; Gelsolin; Asgard; TACK; Sulfolobus; Cell division; Cytokinesis; Cytoskeleton; Heimdallarchaeota; Actin-binding protein; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Sammanfattning : Our understanding of the functional and regulatory complexity that existed in the eukaryotic progenitor is poor, and investigations have been hindered by our nebulous understanding of where eukaryotes stem from. Recently discovered archaeal lineages with hitherto unseen homology to eukaryotic systems suggest archaea can further our understanding of the eukaryotic cell’s ancestry. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Protein complexes : assembly, structure and function

    Författare :Kristina Wilhelm; Ludmilla Ludmilla Morozova-Roche; Catharina Svanborg; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HAMLET; ELOA; lysozyme; amyloid; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning :  Most proteins must fold into their native conformations to fulfil their biological functions. Failure of proteins to fold leads to cell pathology and a broad range of human diseases referred to as protein misfolding disease, e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and type II diabetes.

  4. 4. The birth and growth of the protein folding nucleus : Studies of protein folding focused on critical contacts, topology and ionic interactions

    Författare :Linda Hedberg; Mikael Oliveberg; Christopher Johnson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein folding; protein stability; two-state folding; chevron plot; transition-state movements; Hammond behaviour; topology; electrostatic interactions; pH dependence; mass-action; protein engineering; pKa; Biochemistry; Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Proteins are among the most complex molecules in the cell and they play a major role in life itself. The complexity is not restricted to just structure and function, but also embraces the protein folding reaction. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Structural and thermodynamical basis for molecular recognition between engineered binding proteins

    Författare :Jakob Dogan; Per-Åke Nygren; John E. Ladbury; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; protein structure; induced fit; binding thermodynamics; NMR spectroscopy; protein engineering; protein-protein interactions; protein stability; calorimetry; Structural biochemistry; Strukturbiokemi;

    Sammanfattning : The structural determination of interacting proteins, both as individual proteins and in their complex, complemented by thermodynamical studies are vital in order to gain in-depth insights of the phenomena leading to the highly selective protein-protein interactions characteristic of numerous life processes. This thesis describes an investigation of the structural and thermodynamical basis for molecular recognition in two different protein-protein complexes, formed between so-called affibody proteins and their respective targets.
