    Abstract : Anopheles gambiae sensu lato mosquitoes are among the dominant malaria vectors in sub-Saharan Africa. However, not much is known about the oviposition behaviour of these species necessary for the development of malaria vector control strategies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Identification of bacteria associated with malaria mosquitoes - Their characterisation and potential use

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för genetik, mikrobiologi och toxikologi

    Author : Jenny Lindh; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Malaria; mosquito; Anopheles; bacteria; paratransgenics; semiochemicals; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The use of transformed bacteria to stop or kill disease-causing agents in the gut of vector insects is called paratransgenics. Two of the major steps in creating a paratransgenic Anopheles mosquito, unable to spread the Plasmodium parasites that cause malaria, are to find a bacterium suitable for the purpose and a way to introduce the transformed bacterium into mosquitoes in the field.

  3. 3. Novel Modes of Immune Activation in Anopheles gambiae and Drosophila melanogaster

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Bo Lindberg; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Malaria is a disease of poverty and continues to plague a great part of the world’s population. An increased understanding of the interactions between the vector mosquito, the malaria parasite, and also the mosquito gut microbiota are pivotal for the development of novel measures against the disease.

  5. 5. Vγ9Vδ2 T cells - response to P. falciparum-derived phosphoantigens and potential for use in colon cancer immunotherapy 

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Chenxiao Liu; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Vγ9Vδ2 T cell is the dominant circulating γδ T cell subset in humans, can expand massively upon malaria infection and are cytotoxic to cancer cells. Vγ9Vδ2 T cells are stimulated by phosphoantigens, primarily isoprenoid pyrophosphates like isopentenyl pyrophosphate and (E)-4-hydroxy-3-methyl-but-2-enyl pyrophosphate (HMBPP). READ MORE
