This project report is on Haptoglobin (Hp), which is a serum protein recognized for its capability to form a tight complex with hemoglobin (Hb) and thus suppressing the oxidative activity of Hb. Some topics studied in this project are: Protein secretion, Glycosylation, Gene duplications, Haptoglobin, Biosynthesis, etc.
In the pentose phosphate pathway, carbohydrates such as glucose and ribose are degraded with production of reductive power and energy. Another important function is to produce essential pentoses, such as ribose 5-phosphate, which later can be used in biosynthesis of nucleic acids
In this thesis, methods to study gene and protein expression in cells and tissues were developed and utilized in combination with protein-specific antibodies, with the overall objective to attain greater understanding of protein function.To analyze protein expression in in vitro cultured cell
The developing nervous system depends largely on extracellular cues to shape its complex network of neurons. Classically, neurotrophins are known to be important mediators in this process. More recently, Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMPs), belonging to the Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGFβ) superfamily
