    Abstract : Adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5) is widely used as an oncolytic agent for cancer therapy. However, its infectivity is highly dependent on the expression level of coxsackievirus-adenovirus receptor (CAR) on the surface of tumor cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on hereditary C2 deficiency: Frequent occurrence of severe infections, atherosclerosis and rheumatological manifestations

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Abstract : The complement system is a part of the innate immunity and is essential in the defence against microorganisms. Hereditary C2 deficiency (C2D) is one of the most common complement deficiency states with an estimated prevalence of 1:20,000 in persons of Western descent. READ MORE

  3. 3. Streptococcal protein Rib and related proteins: a family of repetitive surface proteins that elicit protective immunity

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Margaretha Stålhammar-Carlemalm; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; cross-protection; epithelial cell adhesion; protective immunity; vaccination; surface proteins; Group B streptococcus; Streptococcus pyogenes; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Streptococci constitute a heterogeneous group of Gram-positive bacteria, divided into different serological groups on the basis of antigenic differences in a cell wall-associated carbohydrate. This thesis describes related surface proteins expressed by bacteria in two of these groups, the group B streptococcus (GBS) and the group A streptococcus (GAS). READ MORE

  4. 4. Functional characterization of the human adenovirus pVII protein and non-coding VA RNAI

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Raviteja Inturi; Tanel Punga; Goran Akusjarvi; Thomas Dobner; [2017]

    Abstract : Human adenovirus (HAdV) is a common pathogen causing a broad spectrum of diseases. HAdV encodes the pVII protein, which is involved in nuclear delivery, protection and expression of viral DNA. To suppress the cellular interferon (IFN) and RNA interference (RNAi) systems, HAdVs encode non-coding virus-associated (VA) RNAs. READ MORE

    Abstract : Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), originally described as carcinoids, represent a rare and heterogeneous group of neoplasms associated with intensive secretion of hormones, bioactive peptides and amines. Most of the patients are diagnosed at a late stage of disease, often with liver metastases. READ MORE
