  2. 2. Antibacterial peptides - key players in host defense at epithelial surfaces

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Mette Eliasson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mucosa; epithelium; pharyngitis; Innate immunity; Streptococcus pyogenes; antibacterial peptides; IFN-gamma; CXCL9 MIG; chemokines;

    Abstract : Innate host defense mechanisms at epithelial surfaces are important to prevent bacterial invasion. Streptococcus pyogenes, group A streptococcus (GAS), has an affinity for epithelial cells and cause pharyngitis. During streptococcal pharyngitis, high concentrations of the chemokines CXCL9/MIG, CXCL10/IP-10, CXCL11/I-TAC were found in tonsil fluid. READ MORE
