  1. 1. Molecular analysis of transcription factors in uropathogenic E. coli adhesin operons

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Stina Lindberg; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; UPEC; E. coli; F1C; P fimbriae; cross-talk; FocB; PapB; crystal structure; OMVs; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Microbiology Medical microbiology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Mikrobiologi Medicinsk mikrobiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The main causative agent of human urinary tract infections is the uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) pathotype. It may cause disease due to its ability to express a number of bacterial virulence factors. Fimbrial adhesins are particularly important for the initial establishment of infection in the urinary tract. READ MORE

  2. 2. Febrile Urinary Tract Infection: P fimbriae, Innate Host Response and Bacteremia

    University dissertation from Gisela Otto, Infektionskliniken, Universitetssjukhuset, 221 85 Lund

    Author : Gisela Otto; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; prsGJ96; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; papGIA2; antibiotic therapy; urine; chemokine; interleukin-6; host response; P fimbriae; bacteremia; febrile urinary tract infection; Escherichia coli;

    Abstract : Urinary tract infections (UTI) are among the most common human infections, and febrile UTI with bacteremia the most severe form. The relation between bacteria and host decides disease severity. The dominating uropathogen is Escherichia coli (E. coli). READ MORE

  3. 3. Escherichia coli Fimbriae, Bacterial Persistence and Host Response Induction in the Human Urinary Tract

    University dissertation from Division of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology - MIG

    Author : Göran Bergsten; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; virologi; mykologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; virology; bacteriology; Microbiology; IL-8; IL-6; neutrophils; GFP; mucosal host response; Type 1 fimbriae; P fimbriae; adherence; virulence factors; regulation; deliberate colonisation; Escherichia coli 83972; Urinary tract infection; asymptomatic bacteriuria;

    Abstract : Urinary tract infections (UTI) are among the most common bacterial infections in humans. Symptomatic UTIs may be acute, recurrent or chronic but the most frequent form of UTI is asymptomatic bacteruria (ABU). In ABU, the mucosa remains inert, despite the presence of large bacterial numbers in urine. READ MORE

  4. 4. Peptidomimetics based on ring-fused 2-pyridones probing pilicide function in uropathogenic E. coli and identification of Aβ-peptide aggregation inhibitors

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kemi

    Author : Veronica Åberg; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 2-pyridone; peptidomimetic; antibacterial; pili; Escherichia coli; virulence; amyloid; Alzheimer’s.; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the synthesis and biological evaluation of highly substituted, ring-fused 2-pyridones. The utility of the bicyclic 2-pyridones to gain fundamental insights into the disease processes of bacterial infections and Alzheimer’s disease has been investigated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Urinary tract infections in pregnancy : studies in vivo and in vitro

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Musa Sekikubo; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The risk of urinary tract infection (UTI) in pregnant women is increased and predisposes them to acute pyelonephritis together with poor pregnancy outcomes. Increased frequency of micturition, nocturia and lower abdominal discomfort are common non-specific complaints during pregnancy, which render clinical diagnosis of UTI inaccurate. READ MORE
