    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Lars Bellner; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; herpes simplex virus type 2; glycoprotein G-2; T-cell proliferation; Th1 cytokines; phagocytes; NK cells; reactive oxygen species; formyl peptide receptors;

    Abstract : Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is a sexually transmitted pathogen that infects the human genital tract mucosa and is the most common cause of genital ulcer disease in humans. The infection exhibits a broad clinical spectrum, ranging from severe recurrent episodes of genital herpes to being completely asymptomatic. READ MORE

  3. 18. Targeting NOX2 in cancer

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Ebru Aydin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer; reactive oxygen species; immunotherapy; nox2; nk cells; melanoma; histamine; metastasis; leukemia; aml; cml; kras; mpd;

    Abstract : Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are short-lived, toxic derivatives of oxygen that are produced during mitochondrial respiration and by NADPH oxidases (NOX). By enzymatically generating ROS, the myeloid cell NOX2 plays a critical role in defense against bacteria and other microorganisms. READ MORE

MHC class I molecules have been shown to delivera negative signal to NK cells. READ MORE

  5. 20. MHC-class I restricted peptidebasedimmunomodulation of CD8+T and NK cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Huddinge

    Author : Adil Doganay Duru; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The main aims of the immune system are to protect the host from potential threats by distinguishing self from non-self and altered-self. T cells and NK cells play a key role in the identification and elimination of threats by scanning a repertoire of peptide epitopes presented by major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules.
