  1. 1. Molecular studies on streptococcal surface proteins

    University dissertation from Divison of Medical Microbiology

    Author : Johan Waldemarsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nonimmunodominance; vaccine; camouflaging; Streptococcus agalactiae; leucine-rich repeat; Streptococcus pyogenes; alpha; fibrinogen; M protein; surface proteins; Rib;

    Abstract : Streptococcus agalactiae and Streptococcus pyogenes are two related human pathogens causing different diseases. This thesis focuses on a number of surface proteins expressed by S. agalactiae and S. pyogenes and, more specifically, the molecular and biological characterization of these proteins. READ MORE

  2. 2. Surface proteins of pathogenic streptococci

    University dissertation from Divison of Medical Microbiology

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Grupp B streptokocker (GBS; Streptococcus agalactiae) är den vanligaste orsaken till livs-hotande infektioner hos nyfödda barn. Enbart i USA orsakar GBS ~10 000 fall av meningit (hjärnhinneinflammation), pneumoni (lunginflammation) och sepsis (blodförgiftning) varje år. READ MORE

  3. 3. The impact of Staphylococcus aureus surface proteins on virulence

    University dissertation from Divison of Medical Microbiology

    Author : Niklas Palmqvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Staphylococcus aureus; septic arthritis; sepsis; virulence; cell wall-anchored proteins; surface proteins; fibrinogen.;

    Abstract : Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen in humans with the potential to cause life-threatening invasive infections, including sepsis and septic arthritis. The pathogenicity of S. aureus depends on the expression of a variety of virulence factors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lipid-Based Surface Modifications: towards the Development of Membrane-Protein Arrays

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Indriati Pfeiffer; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2006]

    Abstract : Mimics of the natural cell membrane, such as lipid vesicles and supported lipid membranes, have gained significant attention in recent years. This is primarily due to their ability to provide scientists with a model system allowing a large arsenal of scientific tools to be used in studies of biological reactions that are naturally controlled by the cell membrane and its components.
