  1. 1. Antiadhesive agents targeting uropathogenic Escherichia coli : Multivariate studies of protein-protein and protein-carbohydrate interactions

    Author : Andreas Larsson; Jan Kihlberg; Fredrik Almqvist; Mats Larhed; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic chemistry; Antibacterial; pili; antiadhesive agents; structure based design; statistical molecular design; 2-pyridone; amino acid derivative; galabiose; enaminone; SPR; ELISA; QSAR; Organisk kemi; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis describes studies directed towards development of novel antiadhesive agents, with particular emphasis on compounds that prevent attachment of bacteria to a host-cell. Three different proteins involved in the assembly or function of adhesive pili in uropathogenic Escherichia coli have been targeted either by rational structure based design or statistical molecular methods.

  2. 2. Study of phages for phage therapy : An Escherichia coli experience

    Author : Mohammadali Khan Mirzaei; Anders Nilsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The world is rapidly moving toward a post-antibiotic era as effective antibiotics are becoming fewer. phage therapy is a potentially possible method for treating infectious diseases and counts as an alternative method for antibiotic therapy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae : Treatment, Selection and International Spread

    Author : Thomas Tängdén; Otto Cars; Anders Johansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; Klebsiella pneumoniae; extended-spectrum beta-lactamases; carbapenemases; metallo-beta-lactamases; synergy; antibiotic interventions;

    Abstract : The prevalence of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) and carbapenemases is increasing worldwide. Therapeutic options for infections with these bacteria are limited not only by the production of ESBLs and carbapenemases, which confer resistance to cephalosporins and carbapenems, but also by frequent co-resistance to other antibiotics.

  4. 4. Dual-topology membrane proteins in Escherichia coli

    Author : Susanna Seppälä; Gunnar von Heijne; Dirk Jan Slotboom; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; membrane protein topology; dual-topology; evolution; Escherichia coli; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Cellular life, as we know it, is absolutely dependent on biological membranes; remarkable superstructures made of lipids and proteins. For example, all living cells are surrounded by at least one membrane that protects the cell and holds it together. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ribosomes and subunits from Escherichia coli studied by asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation

    Author : Mikael Nilsson; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metabolic engineering; VHb; Vitreoscilla hemoglobin; E. coli; Escherichia coli; separation; subunits; ribosomes; Asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation; flow FFF; optimization; biotechnological production; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation (FFF) separations of ribosomes and subunits have been studied. Ribosomal material was prepared from Escherichia coli (E. coli) cells and analyzed by the size separation technique. READ MORE
