  1. 6. Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Lactobacillus from initial adherence to effects on human cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology, Stockholm University

    Author : Katarina Vielfort; Helena Aro; Bernt Eric Uhlin; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neisseria gonorrhoeae; Lactobacillus; adhesion; cell cycle; DNA damage; Neutrophils; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The causative agent of gonorrhoea Neisseria gonorrhoeae (gonococcus) colonises the urogenital tract epithelia. The vaginal tract microbiota of healthy females is dominated by Lactobacillus species. In paper I, the ability of lactobacilli to protect cervical cells against gonococcal adherence was investigated.

  2. 7. Homopolysaccharide metabolism in Lactobacillus reuteri and Pediococcus parvulus

    University dissertation from Applied Microbiology (LTH)

    Author : Emma Årsköld; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; virology; bacteriology; Carbohydrate metabolism; Exopolysaccharides; Lactic acid bacteria; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; mycology; Microbiology;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the central carbohydrate metabolism and exopolysaccharide (EPS) formation in two different lactic acid bacteria (LAB): Lactobacillus reuteri and Pediococcus parvulus. LAB are traditionally used as starter cultures in the food industry. In general, LAB harbours one glycolytic pathway converting carbohydrates into lactic acid. READ MORE

  3. 8. Can Lactobacillus Reuteri Prevent Allergic Disease in Early Childhood?

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Thomas Abrahamsson; Maria Jenmalm; Bengt Björkstén; John Bienenstock; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Background: An altered microbial exposure may be partly responsible for the increase of allergic diseases in populations with a western lifestyle. Activation of the immune system by microbes early in life is probably required for an accurate maturation of the immune system. READ MORE

  4. 9. Bio-based C-3 Platform Chemical: Biotechnological Production and -Conversion of 3-Hydroxypropionaldehyde

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Roya Rezaei; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lactobacillus reuteri; 3-hydroxypropionic acid; biotransformation; Glycerol; 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde; In situ complexation;

    Abstract : Demands for efficient, greener, economical and sustainable production of chemicals, materials and energy have led to development of industrial biotechnology as a key technology area to provide such products from bio-based raw materials from agricultural-, forestry- and related industrial residues and by-products. For the bio-based industry, it is essential to develop a number of building blocks or platform chemicals for C2-C6 chemicals and even aromatic chemicals. READ MORE

    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel diseases, (IBD), are a group of chronic disorders of the gastro-intestinal tract, and include Crohn’s disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). The pathogenesis is not known, but involves at least in part a loss of tolerance towards the commensal colonic microbiota. READ MORE
