  1. 1. Bacterial viruses targeting multi-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli

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

    Author : Harald Eriksson; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bacterial viruses; Bacteriophage; Phage; Phage therapy; multi-resistant bacteria; Klebsiella pneumoniae; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The global increase in antibiotic resistance levels in bacteria is a growing concern to our society and highlights the need for alternative strategies to combat bacterial infections. Bacterial viruses (phages) are the natural predators of bacteria and are as diverse as their hosts, but our understanding of them is limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Antibiotic Resistance Selection in the Presence of Metals and Antimicrobials

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lisa M. Albrecht; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antibiotic resistance; Metals; Antimicrobials; Bacterial evolution; Bacterial genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : The external environment is complex: Antibiotics, metals and antimicrobials do not exist in isolation but in mixtures. Human activities such as animal husbandry, fertilization of agricultural fields and human medicine release high amounts these compounds into the environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Unified Multitude Experimental Studies of Bacterial Chromosome Organization

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Garmendia; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bacterial evolution; chromosome organization and structure; chromosomal inversions; EF-Tu; horizontal gene transfer; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : Bacteria are many, old and varied; different bacterial species have been evolving for millions of years and show many disparate life-styles and types of metabolism. Nevertheless, some of the characteristics regarding how bacteria organize their chromosomes are relatively conserved, suggesting that they might be both ancient and important, and that selective pressures inhibit their modification.

  4. 4. Hemolin, a versatile immune protein from the Cecropia moth

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology, Stockholm University

    Author : Raul Bettencourt; Stockholms universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetics; genetik;

    Abstract : Insects have become useful models for the study of innate immune mechanisms, due to their lack of antibodies and receptors involved in adaptive immune response. However, the molecules and mechanisms involved in primordial immune recognition are still poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evolution of cellular complexity and other remarkable features in Gemmataceae Complex bacterial lineages defy prokaryotic trends

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mayank Mahajan; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular evolution; Planctomycetes; Gemmataceae; functional organization; signalling; protein interaction; peptidoglycan; membranes; cell division; radiation tolerance; Pfam; SCOP; comparative genomics; protein architecture; domain shuffling and orthologous clustering; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Bacteria of the family Gemmataceae belong the phylum Planctomycetes and are remarkable because of their complex cellular architectures, previously considered to be traits exclusive to eukaryotes. This thesis provides clues to the atypical cell envelope, the enhanced radiotolerance and the amazing cellular complexity of these bacteria. READ MORE
