  1. 1. Structural and functional studies of C4b-binding protein (C4BP)

    Author : Lena Kask; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phagocytosis; apoptosis; protein S; complement control protein CCP domains; factor H fH ; Complement; C4b-binding protein C4BP ; intracellular assembly; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : The subject of this thesis is complement inhibitor C4b-binding protein (C4BP), on which we have performed both structural and functional studies. Complement is part of the innate immune defence and eliminates microbes, solubilises immune complexes and is involved in the clearance of apoptotic cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interactions between Streptococcus pyogenes and the human immune system, with special reference to C4b-binding protein

    Author : Anette Thern; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; Phagocytosis; M-proteins; M-like proteins; Bovine C4b-binding protein; Streptococcus pyogenes; Human C4b-binding protein; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : The ability of many pathogenic microorganisms to cause infection is dependent on their ability to evade attack by the complement system of the host. One mechanism by which microorganisms may avoid complement attack is to bind complement inhibitory molecules present in the host. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein Interactions Involving the Laminin G-type Domains of Vitamin K-dependent Protein S

    Author : Petra Evenäs; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Klinisk kemi; Clinical chemistry; tyrosine phosphorylation.; Sky receptor; SHBG-like region; protein S; G domain; Gas6; Activated protein C; C4b-binding protein; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : The studies described in this thesis focus on the involvement of the two laminin G-type domains of vitamin K-dependent protein S in various biological contexts. The G-type domains are located in the C-terminal sex-hormone-binding globulin (SHBG)-like region. READ MORE

  4. 4. Streptococcal M protein and human C4BP

    Author : Jenny J Persson; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Infektioner; Infections; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; human C4BP; M protein; antigenic variation; sequence variability; Streptococcus pyogenes; innate immunity;

    Abstract : Antigenic variation of surface proteins allows microorganisms to evade the immune system of the infected host. This phenomenon represents an apparent paradox, because the variable protein must retain an important function, while its antigenic properties vary extensively. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural pathology and functional analysis of vitamin K-dependent protein S

    Author : Tusar K Giri; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; C4b-binding protein; Protein S; blood coagulation; thrombosis; natural mutations; in vitro characterization.; Immunology; transplantation; serologi; Immunologi; serology;

    Abstract : Protein S deficiency is an autosomal dominant trait affecting around 10% of families thrombophilic families. The high affinity interaction of approximately 60% of protein S with C4b -binding protein (C4BP) has raised a complicated situation for the diagnosis of deficiency states. READ MORE
