  • Characterization of a neuraminic acid synthase from the psychrophilic organism Moritella viscosa 

    Berg, Tor Olav (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-05-15)
    Sialic acids are family of nine carbon α-keto acids found to have important roles mammals and bacteria. They are negatively charged sugars which have found to play critical roles in the cognitive development, as well as being a part of the innate immune system and being targets for pathogens. Mammalian cells express sialic acids to confer self to the immune system, a trait being exploited by some ...
  • Studies Towards the Synthesis of DKP Analogues. Investigations of Bis-lactim Ether Reactivity with Aldehydes and Ketones 

    Kadysjev, Arslan Maratovitsj (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-05-19)
    A group of molecules with the name diketopiperazines (DKP) are called so, because of their diketopiperazine ring as the core structural unit. Mainly there are 3 types of diketopiperazies which only differ in in the position of the keto group, one type has the keto groups in 2,3- position; another in 2,5-; and the third in 2,6- position. The 2,5- isomer has attracted great interest, because of compounds ...
  • Characterization and structural analysis of class D β-lactamases: variants and mutants of OXA-type carbapenemases 

    Nesheim, Birgit Helene Berg (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-05-18)
    The rise and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria is posing a serious threat to the global health; antibiotic drugs are rendered ineffective and common infectious diseases become harder or impossible to treat. The beta-lactamase enzymes, with their ability to hydrolyze the beta-lactam antibiotics, are a major cause of resistant bacteria. The OXA-beta-lactamase enzymes are one of the most alarming ...
  • An Insight into the Aliivibrio genus. A comparative study on relationships and traits of species within the genus Aliivibrio 

    Klemetsen, Terje (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-05-18)
    Few studies have emphasized on the genus Aliivibrio as a whole and lags behind the better known Vibrio. Nevertheless, the Aliivibrio has for several decades been associated with species expressing bioluminescence like the Aliivibrio fischeri, but has also been linked to costly diseases in the fish farming industry such as Aliivibrio salmonicida. In an attempt to gain insight in the genus on a ...

Response surface analysis helped to determine both significant variables ...
  • On the Synthesis of Breitfussins. Toward the total synthesis of Breitfussin A and analogues 

    Guttormsen, Yngve (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-05)
    The Breitfussins are a series of closely related heterocyclic compounds originated from the marine organism Thelia Breitfussi. The core is a 5(indol-3-yl)-2-(pyrrol-2-yl)oxazole, which has not been observed prior to its isolation in 2007. The divergence of the Breitfussins lies in the halogenation pattern and methoxy substitution. Breitfussin A is of synthetic interest because of its novel structural ...
  • MD simulations reveal how synthetic antimicrobial peptides interact with membrane models 

    Sarre, Birta Ravdna (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-12-17)
    Since the discovery of antibiotics the extensive use in health care and agriculture has led to the development of resistant bacterial strains. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) exists in nature where they are believed to play an important role in the innate immune system in vertebrates. Due to their antibacterial properties and apparent ability to elicit very low bacterial resistance, researchers have ...
  • Target characterization and ligand design directed at deoxyuridine 5'-triphospate nucleotidohydrolase 

    Liikanen, Laura Elina (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-07-01)
    dUTPase is an important enzyme in DNA metabolism. It can be thought of as a gate keeper for apoptosis and is therefore an attractive target when trying to kill malign cells which cause disease in the human body. dUTPase has been found to be an important drug target in diseases such as cancer and malaria, to mention two. Due to problems with drug resistance in existing treatments, the search for new ...
  • Biophysical characterization of the DYRK family. Studies on the kinases DYRK1A and DYRK1B 

    Alexeeva, Marina (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-11-13)
    The dual-specificity tyrosine phosphorylation-regulated kinase family (DYRKs) has recently emerged as new therapeutic targets for different kinds of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. In the latest studies it was shown that DYRK1B plays a key role in cancer cell survival, and its inhibition induces apoptosis of cancer cells. This thesis is about the biophysical characterization of DYRK1B and ...

  • Synthesis of β-substituted β-aminoboronates 

    Thomassen, Ivar Kristian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-05)
    Recent work at the University of Tromsø has uncovered new α-substituted α- and β-aminoboron containing peptidomimetics that shows antimicrobial, antifungal and antitubercular activity in addition to kinase inhibition and promotion. As a continuation of this work a new approach for the synthesis of β-substituted β-aminoboronates has been developed. The approach involves the non-stereospecific ...
  • Biotech applications of protein kinase affinity interactions 

    Lund, Bjarte Aarmo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-05)
    Protein kinases provide one of the cell’s most important methods for signaling and control. 2% of the encoding genome consists of protein kinase genes, and from 10-50% of the proteins in the cell are phosphorylated at some point in the cell cycle. Malfunction of protein kinases is connected to several disease-conditions, most prominently cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes. Understanding the ...
