Title: 
A data mining synthesis approach to the discovery of impersonalised, robust and safe therapies

Abstract:

Adverse Drug Reactions, ADRs, are a major burden on healthcare systems, and arguably, if patients can be stratified, more novel therapies, tolerable in particular genotyped groups could be developed and launched. We have taken a data synthesis approach to explore ADRs and some of the underlying molecular recognition and pharmacokinetic concepts. We then derived a novel drug combination strategy which theoretically can greatly improve the safety of current therapies and also lead to more predictable and consistent patient population response.

Title:
Design, synthesis and biological application of in vivo imaging probes with tunable chemical switches

Host: Gunnar Öquist

Place: KBC, Large Lecture hall "Stora hörsalen"

Abstract:
One of the great challenges in the post-genome era is to clarify the biological significance of intracellular molecules directly in living cells. If we can image a molecule in action, it is possible to acquire biological information, which is unavailable if we deal with cell homogenates. One possible approach is to design and synthesize chemical probes that can convert biological information to chemical output. Protein fluorescent labeling provides an attractive approach to study the localization and function of proteins in living cells. Recently, a specific pair of a protein tag and its ligand has been utilized to visualize a protein of interest (POI). In this method, a POI is fused with a protein tag and the tag is labeled with the ligand connected to a fluorescent molecule. The advantage of this protein labeling system is that a variety of fluorescent molecules are potentially available as labeling reagents, and that the protein tag is conditionally labeled with its fluorescent ligand. I have designed a protein labeling system that allows fluorophores to be linked to POI. The protein tag (BL-tag) is a mutant class A ?-lactamase (TEM-1) modified to be covalently bound to the designed specific labeling probes and the labeling probes is consisted with a ?-lactam ring (ampicillin, cephalosporin) attached to various fluorophores. A fluorogenetic labeling system can be designed using the unique property of cephalosporin, which release leaving group by subsequent reaction after opening the lactam ring. For further sophisticated application, multicolor imaging was done by adopting the colorful fluorophoresis.

Title: Modeling intracellular regulation: Transcription factor kinetics

Abstract:
Basic physical constraints in how macromolecules are made and how fast they can find each other in the intracellular environment constrain the fidelity of cellular regulation. These two properties are recently studied experimentally as well as analytically. I will give a brief overview of how such processes can be characterized and modeled.
