    Docking seminar on HCØ

    Janina Sprenger, Biochemistry, Lund University, is giving a talk entitled "Docking, inhibition and ligand binding: How enzyme kinetics can help to get more out of your inhibitor design project." The talk will be in HCØ building 2/C C303 lunch room on Tuesday 13th June 10:00-11:00. The topic may well be of interest to others in ISBUC, and guests and students are very welcome. Janina is a structural biologist so her take on the topic is very relevant to ISBUCcers.  » Read more

    MAX4ESSFUN Summer School

    Data collection and structure determination in macromolecular crystallography. Aarhus University 28th August – 2 nd September Course contents Diffraction theory, data collection and data processing Anomalous scattering, collection of anomalous data, phasing with anomalous data Neutron crystallography Molecular replacement Structural biology in fragment based drug discovery and development of protein therapeutics Map interpretation and ligand identification Refinement of macromolecular structures An one-day excursion with data collection at Petra III The course is open for Phd students/postdocs from the ØKS region, http://interreg-oks.eu/. Applicants from academic institutions or private companies should have basic knowledge of crystallographic data collection, and be able to process data from a well diffracting single protein crystal. An introduction to standard data processing can be arranged at Aarhus University prior to the course for participants lacking these qualifications. Participating PhD students obtain 4 ECTS credits. The number of participants is limited to 20. Costs for accommodation and meals are covered by MAX4ESSFUN. Support for travel is also available upon application. For additional information contact Gregers Rom Andersen, gra@mbg.au.dk. Application deadline: 29th of June 2017. Applicants will be notified by 10th of July. For further information and application, see https://max4essfun.ku.dk/courses/courses/data-collection-in-macromolecular-crystallography » Read more

    Seminar on protein interactions

    Thursday October 12th 2017, Biocenter, Seminar room 1.2.03. Time: 15:00 - 17:00 Host: Birthe B. Kragelund, SBiNLab, BIO Dynamics and thermodynamics of ligand binding Professor Mikael Akke, Lund University, Swedenhttp://www.cmps.lu.se/bpc/research/akke/ Abstract: Protein conformational dynamics can be critical for ligand binding in two ways that relate to kinetics and thermodynamics. First, conformational transitions between different substates can control access to the binding site (kinetics). Secondly, differences between free and ligand-bound states in their conformational fluctuations contribute to the entropy of ligand binding (thermodynamics). NMR relaxation experiments provide unique probes of both conformational entropy by characterizing bond-vector fluctuations, and binding kinetics by measuring rates of exchange between free and bound states. I will provide a few examples of these two phenomena from our recent research. Molecular and cellular determinants of cytokine receptor activation Professor Jacob Piehler, Universität Osnabrück, Germanyhttp://www.biophysik.uni-osnabrueck.de/ Abstract: The spatiotemporal organization of cytokine receptors and the role of dimerization by the ligand are currently controversially discussed. We have developed techniques for quantifying diffusion and interaction of cytokine receptors in the plasma membrane of living cells at single molecule level. These techniques clearly established ligand-induced dimerization for a large variety of class I and class II cytokine receptors. In all cases, we have observed random distribution and diffusion of individual receptor subunits in the plasma membrane and significant formation of receptor dimers only in presence of the ligand. Based on quantitative structure-function studies of receptor and JAK domains involved in receptor dimerization, I will propose a refined model of cytokine receptor activation.   » Read more
