  1. 1. Complement in Autoimmunity - the importance of clearing waste

    University dissertation from Protein Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Jonatan Leffler; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; annexins; apoptosis; Complement system; neutrophil extracellular traps; systemic lupus erythematosus; C1q; factor H; histones;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Varje dag dör miljoner celler i kroppen. Döda celler som finns kvar i kroppen innehåller ämnen som kan reta immunförsvaret och skapa inflammationer. Därför är det viktigt att döda celler tas om hand av kroppen på ett sådant sätt att inte immunförsvaret aktiveras. READ MORE

  2. 2. Crosstalk Between Activated Platelets and the Complement System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Osama A. Hamad; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelets; activated platelets; TRAP; chondroitin sulfate; C1q; factor H; C4BP; C3; Compstatin; complement; platelet-leukocyte complexes; platelet microparticles; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology Clinical immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi Klinisk immunologi; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Abstract : Several studies have shown that complement and thrombotic events co-exist. Platelets have been suspected to act as the bridge between the two cascade systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Novel endogenous mechanisms of complement regulation - A delicate balance

    University dissertation from Clinical Chemistry, Malmö

    Author : Andreas Holmér; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; short leucine rich glycoprotein; factor H; C1q; age-related macular degeneration; C4b-binding protein; prion disease; prion protein; Complement regulation; C-reactive protein;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the biochemical mechanisms for complement activation by endogenous proteins are explored. The short leucine-rich repeat proteins (SLRPs) help organise extracellular matrices. We found that several SLRPs bind C1q and of these, fibromodulin and osteoadherin trigger complement. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular analysis of Streptococcus pyogenes and its interactions with the human host

    University dissertation from Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish De flesta bakterier lever i harmoni med människan, på huden och på olika slemhinnor framför allt i mag-tarmkanalen. Cellerna på dessa ytorna utgör ett effektivt skydd mot sjukdomsalstrande bakterier. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interactions between platelets and complement with implications for the regulation at surfaces

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Per H. Nilsson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; complement system activation; regulation ; platelets activation; regulation ; biomaterials; biocompatibility; chondroitin sulfate-A; apyrase; C1q; C3; factor H; C4BP; ADP; Biomedicinsk vetenskap; Biomedical Sciences;

    Abstract : Disturbances of host integrity have the potential to evoke activation of innate immunologic and hemostatic protection mechanisms in blood. Irrespective of whether the activating stimulus is typically immunogenic or thrombotic, it will generally affect both the complement system and platelets to a certain degree. READ MORE
