    Abstract : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic microbes found in oxygen limited environments such as the intestine of animals were they may cause severe disease. Among them, the prominent human parasite Giardia intestinalis non-invasively colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals where it induces the gastrointestinal disease giardiasis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolution of symbiotic lineages and the origin of new traits

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Tamarit; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; symbiosis; host-association; Lactobacillus; Bifidobacterium; Rhizobiales; Bartonella; honeybees; ants; codon usage bias; genome architecture; genome organization; gene transfer agent; evolutionary genomics; comparative genomics; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the genomic study of symbionts of two different groups of hymenopterans: bees and ants. Both groups of insects have major ecological impact, and investigating their microbiomes increases our understanding of their health, diversity and evolution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Macromolecular Matchmaking Mechanisms and Biology of Bacterial Small RNAs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erik Holmqvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Small RNA; sRNA; non-coding RNA; antisense; gene regulation; post-transcriptional regulation; translational control; outer membrane protein; OmpA; MicA; biofilm; flagella; curli; bistability; Lrp; MicF; CsgD; FlgM; OmrA; OmrB; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : Cells sense the properties of the surrounding environment and convert this information into changes in gene expression. Bacteria are, in contrast to many multi-cellular eukaryotes, remarkable in their ability to cope with rapid environmental changes and to endure harsh and extreme milieus. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of secreted Giardia intestinalis cysteine proteases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jingyi Liu; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Giardia intestinalis; ESPs; CPs; apical junction; chemokines; phage display; immunoglobulins; defensins; mucin.; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : Giardia intestinalis, the causative agent of the diarrheal disease giardiasis, is a protozoan parasite that colonizes the upper small intestine of mammals, including humans. It can be divided into eight genotypes or assemblages (A through H) and only assemblage A and B are infective to humans. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploration of bacteria associated with Anopheles mosquitoes around the world For the prevention of transmission of malaria

    Abstract : Every year, hundreds of thousands of people die from malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by parasites, which are spread by female vector mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. Current control measures against malaria are based on drugs against the parasites and vector control using insecticides. READ MORE
