    Author : Liza Danielsson Niemi; Ingegerd Johansson; Pernilla Lif Holgersson; Jukka Meurman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adhesion; statherin; gp-340; caseins; human milk; saliva; Streptococcus mutans; Actinomyces; Cariology; Cariologi; kariologi; Cariology;

    Abstract : Infectious diseases e.g. gastric ulcer, caries and perodontitis, are caused by bacteria in a biofilm. Adhesion of bacteria to host ligands e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bacterial adhesion to polyelectrolyte modified materials based on nanocellulose

    Author : Jonatan Henschen; Lars Wågberg; Per Larsson; Josefin Larsson; Aji Mathew; Michael Malkoch; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bacterial adhesion; cellulose nanofibrils; polymer adsorption; polyvinylamine; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Since the introduction of materials based on cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs), these materials have been studied extensively and are suggested to be suitable for use in, for example, hygiene and health care products. A property not very well studied but that could further increase the usability of CNF products is the possibility of controlling bacterial adhesion to the materials. READ MORE

  3. 3. Helicobacter pylori : bacterial adhesion and host response

    Author : Farzad Olfat; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Communicable diseases; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious diseases; Infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : The gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori infects more than half of the population worldwide. H. pylori manage to establish persistent infection, which would be life-long if not treated. In order to establish such an infection, this pathogen has to deal with the host immune system. READ MORE

  4. 4. The mechanics of adhesion polymers and their role in bacterial attachment

    Author : Johan Zakrisson; Magnus Andersson; Ramser Kerstin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Pili; optical tweezers; bacterial adhesion; fimbriae; uncoiling;

    Abstract : Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is increasing at a high rate in both developing and developed countries. To circumvent the problem of drug-resistant bacterial pathogens, we need to develop new effective methods, substances, and materials that can disarm and prevent them from causing infections.

  5. 5. Adhesion-related interactions of Actinomyces and Streptococcus biofilm bacteria

    Author : Mirva Drobni; Nicklas Strömberg; Karl-Eric Magnusson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; biofilm; Actinomyces; Streptococcus; adhesion; Cariology; Cariologi;

    Abstract : Adhesion of bacteria is a key event in biofilm formation and is mediated by bacterial adhesins recognising host or bacterial partner receptors. In oral biofilm formation, primary Actinomyces and Streptococcus colonizers adhere to salivary pellicle proteins such as proline-rich proteins (PRPs) as well as to mucosal surfaces. READ MORE
