    Abstract : Ersättning av förlorade tänder med tandimplantat är numera en vanlig behandlingsmetod med generellt goda resultat. Antalet implantatsystem på den internationella marknaden har ökat kraftigt under senare år. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microbe-mineral interactions in soil : Investigation of biogenic chelators, microenvironments and weathering processes

    Author : Engy Ahmed; Sara Holmström; Roger Finlay; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Podzol; Biotite; Apatite; Oligoclase; Microbial attachment; Siderophores; Soil microorganisms; geokemi; Geochemistry;

    Abstract : The interplay between geology and biology has shaped the Earth during billions of years. Microbe-mineral interactions are prime examples of this interplay and underscore the importance of microorganisms in making Earth a suitable environment for all forms of life. READ MORE

  3. 3. Recombinant mucin-type proteins as tools for studies on the interactions between Helicobacter pylori and its carbohydrate receptors

    Author : Yolanda H. Mthembu; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; O-glycans; mucins; glycosyltransferases; Helicobacter pylori; microbial adhesion;

    Abstract : Glycan-protein interactions are important in pathogen adhesion and infections. H. pylori has adhesins which enables it to bind to glycans on the gastric mucosa and, in the long run, cause gastric cancer. The reported current antibiotic regimen used in the treatment to eradicate H. READ MORE

  4. 4. Application of proximity Ligation for Detection of Proteins, Biomolecular Interactions, and Single Copies of Pathogens

    Author : Sigrun Margret Gustafsdottir; Ulf Landegren; Per-Åke Nygren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Molecular medicine; Proximity ligation; Cytokines; Microbial pathogens; Protein-DNA interactions; Drug screening; Molekylärmedicin;

    Abstract : Proximity ligation is a recently established technique that can provide answers to questions about the concentration, localization, interactions, modifications and functions of proteins. The method enables sensitive protein measurements with a detection limit in the low femtomolar range in complex biological samples. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigation of a Biofilm Reactor Model with Suspended Biomass

    Author : Alma Masic; Matematik LTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; wall attachment; suspended growth; substrate removal; reactor; biofilm; CSTR; mathematical model; MBBR; nitrification; optimization;

    Abstract : Biofilms are compact, sessile microbial communities that attach to surfaces in aqueous environments. In wastewater treatment, they are especially important for removal of phosphorus and nitrogen, which, if released into a receiving water body, can cause severe eutrophication. READ MORE
