Nucleotides as Antiviral Compounds. On the Feasibility of an Esterase-dependent Prodrug Strategy for 2-5A
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 516, 2015-06-05)
Nukleotidien ja oligonukleotidien analogeilla on merkittävä rooli virusten aiheuttamien tautien hoidossa. Tämän kaltaiset yhdisteet voivat estää spesifisesti virusten proteiineja tai aktivoida luontaista immuunijärjestelmää, ...
Ellagitannins in Finnish plant species – Characterization, distribution and oxidative activity
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 518, 2015-06-17)
Ellagitannins are secondary metabolites that are produced by plants. Among other features, they are assumed to function as plants’ defensive compounds against plant-eating herbivores. This thesis focuses on a theory, which ...
Distribution and oxidative activities of phenolic compounds in the plant kingdom
(Turun yliopisto, 2020-12-08)
Plant phenolics have been studied for decades because of their role as chemodefensive compounds against herbivores and pathogens, and their assumed health benefits to humans. One of their proposed modes of actions is ...
Studies on Intrachain Conjugation, Hybridization and Invasion of Oligonucleotides
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 426, 2011-10-14)
Defects in Persistent Luminescence Materials
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 424, 2011-09-09)
Persistent luminescence materials can store energy from solar radiation or artificial lighting and release it over a period of several hours without a continuous excitation source. These materials are widely used to improve ...
Flavonoids and other phenolic compounds: characterization and interactions with lepidopteran and sawfly larvae
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 496, 2014-11-14)
This thesis focuses on flavonoids, a subgroup of phenolic compounds produced by plants, and how they affect the herbivorous larvae of lepidopterans and sawflies. The first part of the literature review examines different ...
Covalent conjugates of therapeutic oligonucleotides for in vivo targeting
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 546, 2016-09-30)
Over last few years, the development of oligonucleotide based therapeutics (antisense, siRNA, antagomirs) have received much interest as a novel class of drugs for the treatment of many diseases. Cell/organ ...
Phenolics of the Inner Bark of Silver Birch: Characterization and Intraspecific Variation
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A I 477, 2013-12-13)
This thesis describes work related to the in-depth characterization of the phenolic compounds of silver birch (Betula pendula) inner bark. Phenolic compounds are the most ubiquitous class of plant secondary compounds. The ...
Brown algal phlorotannins: Improving and applying chemical methods
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis AI 381, 2008-02-22)
Phlorotannins are the least studied group of tannins and are found only in brown algae. Hitherto the roles of phlorotannins, e.g. in plant-herbivore interactions, have been studied by quantifying the total contents of the ...
