  1. 1. Fc receptors and feedback regulation by antibodies

    Author : Mikael Karlsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Mouse; B lymphocytes; Fc; receptors; IgG; IgE; FcgRI; FcgRII; FcgRIII; Fc e RI; CD23; Rh prophylaxis; Haemolytic disease of the newborn; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to determine the role of Fc receptors for IgG (FcγRI, FcγRIIB, FcγRIII and FcRn) in immunoregulation. IgG is known to enhance the response to soluble antigens such as bovine serum albumin whereas the response to particulate antigens is suppressed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Feedback Enhancement of Antibody Responses via Complement and Fc Receptors

    Author : Jörgen Dahlström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Mouse; transgenic knockout; immune regulation; B lymphocytes; Fc receptors; complement; IgG; IgM; IgE; Fc-gamma-RI; Fc-gamma-RII; Fc-gamma-RIII; CR1; CR2; CD21; CD35; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : IgG, IgM and IgE in complex with antigen have the capacity to regulate specific immune responses. In this investigation, the role of Fc receptors for IgG (FcγRI, FcγRII and FcγRIII) and complement receptors 1 and 2 (CR1/2) for antibody-mediated enhancement of antibody responses are investigated.

  3. 3. Fcγ Receptors in the Immune Response

    Author : Teresita Díaz de Ståhl; Jan van de Winkel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Fc Receptors; IgG Receptors; IgE Receptors; Immune regulation; In vivo animal models; Mouse; Rh prophylaxis; Rheumatoid arthritis; Transgenic knockout; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Circulating immune complexes play an important role in the modulation of antibody responses and in the pathogenesis of immune diseases. This thesis deals with the in vivo regulatory properties of antibodies and their specific Fc receptors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fc receptors and feedback enhancement of antibody responses

    Author : Sara Wernersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; mouse; transgenic knockout; immune regulation; B lymphocytes; Fc receptors; IgG; IgE; FcgRI; FcgRII; FcgRIII; CD23; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Antibodies are important for the defence against microorganisms, but are also involved inpathological reactions such as allergy or autoimmunity. The exact mechanisms involved inregulation of antibody responses is still largely unknown. In this thesis, immune regulationby antibodies and the receptors they bind to (FcR), were investigated.

  5. 5. The Role of Fc Gamma Receptors in Experimental Arthritis

    Author : Maria Andrén; Sandra Kleinau; Birgitta Heyman; Roland Jonsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; Rheumatoid arthritis; Antibodies; Fc receptors; Complement; Transgenic Knockout mice; Immunologi; Immunology; Immunologi;

    Abstract : Induction of collagen-induced arthritis (CIA), an animal model for human rheumatoid arthritis, is dependent on anti-collagen type II (CII) antibodies. The effector mechanism by which autoantibodies contribute to inflammatory reactions in autoimmune diseases is not well understood. READ MORE
