From protein structure to function with bioinformatics
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2015-11-27)
It has long been known that amino acids are the building blocks for proteins and govern their folding into specific three-dimensional structures. However, the details of this process are still unknown and represent one of ...
Structural characterization of avidins with novel binding properties
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2018-09-14)
Avidin (Avd) is a protein first discovered in chicken egg white, and later in other birds, reptiles, amphibians and lancelet. Apart from these eukaryoticspecies, Avd is also identified in few fungal and in many bacterial ...
Membrane properties of structurally modified ceramides : effects on lipid lateral distribution and sphingomyelin-interactions in artificial bilayer membranes
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2014-03-14)
Ceramides comprise a class of sphingolipids that exist only in small amounts in cellular membranes, but which have been associated with important roles in cellular signaling processes. The influences that ceramides have ...
Phosphorylation as a mediator of protein function in cell migration, differentiation, and death : vimentin, AATF, and Par-4 in the spotlight
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2016-11-11)
Protein phosphorylation is a major regulator of cellular signaling. It functions when a kinase joins a phosphate group to a protein, or when a phosphatase strips off a phosphate group from serine, threonine, or tyrosine ...
Prediction of 3D structure and ligand-binding properties : ABC transporters and flavodiiron proteins from Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2013-05-24)
Cyanobacteria are unicellular, non-nitrogen-fixing prokaryotes, which perform photosynthesis similarly as higher plants. The cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803 is used as a model organism in photosynthesis ...
Biogeochemistry in acid sulphate soil landscapes and small urban centres in Western Finland
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2010-01-29)
The overall purpose of this thesis was to increase the knowledge on the biogeochemistry of rural acid sulphate (AS) soil environments and urban forest ecosystems near small towns in Western Finland. In addition, the potential ...
Effects of methylation and hydroxylation of sphingomyelins on their biophysical properties and interactions with cholesterol
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2012-09-28)
Glycolipid and ceramide transfer proteins : important determinants for their function
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2013-04-12)
Identification of Three Conserved Interaction Zones Around the Catalytic Machinery of alpha/beta- Hydrolase Fold Enzymes
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2020-03-06)
The alpha/beta-Hydrolases (ABH) comprise one of the largest structural families of proteins, found in all organisms. Although they share low sequence similarity, the ABH fold enzymes maintain a common catalytic domain, the ...
Bioinformatics Characterization of Amine Oxidases
(Åbo Akademi - Åbo Akademi University, 2018-12-14)
Amine oxidases catalyse the oxidative degradation of amines into the corresponding aldehyde, ammonia and hydrogen peroxide. They can be classified into different subfamilies based on the prosthetic group: (1) proteins with ...
