  1. 1. Regulatory mechanisms involved in pathoadaptation of extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Nikola Zlatkov; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ExPEC; PAIs; pathoadaptation; citrate; metabolism; filamentation; toxins; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Establishment of commensal bacteria within a new niche of their host usually promotes the transition from commensalism to pathogenicity. Extraintestinal Pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC) represent different pathovars with biphasic lifestyle – they can reside in the gut as commensals or they can escape and cause diseases elsewhere in the human body.

  3. 3. Pathogenecity-associated genes modulate Escherichia coli adhesion and motility

    University dissertation from Umeå : Molekylärbiologi

    Author : Annika E. Sjöström; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Escherichia coli strains typical of UPEC (uropathogenic E. coli) and NBM (newborn meningitis) isolates carry chromosomally located PAIs (pathogenicity islands) that are absent in non-pathogenic E. coli strains. The PAIs include genes for virulence factors such as toxins and genes coding for specific adhesins and pili/fimbriae formation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of androgen receptor gene mutations in patients phenotypically ranging from complete androgen insensitivity to men with preserved fertility
