  1. 1. Host-bacteria interactions : Host cell responses and bacterial pathogenesis

    Author : Nele de Klerk; Ann-Beth Jonsson; Teresa Frisan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Host-bacteria interaction; Helicobacter pylori; Neisseria gonorrhoeae; Lactobacillus; Epithelial cells; Macrophages; EGR1; Amphiregulin; SabA; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori colonizes the human stomach, where it causes gastritis that may develop into peptic ulcer disease or cancer when left untreated. Neisseria gonorrhoeae colonizes the urogenital tract and causes the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ecology and evolution in a host-parasitoid system : Host search, immune responses and parasitoid virulence

    Author : Lisa Fors; Peter Hambäck; Wertheim Bregje; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Host-parasitoid interactions; Plant-herbivore interactions; Host search; Volatiles; Pheromones; Geographic variation; Cellular defence; Melanisation; Encapsulation; Asecodes; Galerucella; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : In host-parasitoid systems, there is a continuous coevolutionary arms race where each species imposes a strong selection pressure on the other. The host needs to develop defence strategies in order to escape parasitism and the parasitoid must evolve counter-defence strategies in order to overcome the host’s immune defence and successfully reproduce.

  3. 3. Evolutionary genomics of host-microbe interactions

    Author : Elin Videvall; MEMEG; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; host; microbiota; avian malaria; ostrich; parasite; dual RNA-seq;

    Abstract : The microbes living inside hosts have highly important consequences for host health and fitness. From the host’s perspective, some microbes exhibit mutualistic tendencies, others parasitic, and some commensal, but this is context-dependent and opportunistic lifestyles are widespread in nature.

  4. 4. Bacteria-host cell interactions : Studies on initial colonization, antimicrobial peptides, and biofilms

    Author : Gabriela Wassing; Ann-Beth Jonsson; Elena Vikström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neisseria meningitidis; Lactobacillus; host responses; EGR1; antimicrobial peptides; hBD2; A20; biofilm; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : The obligate human pathogen Neisseria meningitidis asymptomatically colonizes the upper respiratory tract, but crossing of the epithelial barrier can cause life-threatening meningitis and/or sepsis. N. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evolutionary and mechanistic aspects of insect host plant preference

    Author : Alexander Schäpers; Niklas Janz; Steven Heard; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; host plant choice; host range; diet breadth; butterfly; oviposition; specialist; generalist; insect-plant interaction; search behavior; olfaction; decision making; evolution; parasite-host interaction; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : Plant feeding insects comprise about 25% of all animal species on earth and play an important role in all ecosystems. Although we understand that their association with plants is a key-factor driving the diversification in this group, we still have large gaps in our knowledge of the underlying processes of this relationship.
