  1. 1. DNA-dependent protein kinase in human cells

    University dissertation from Annahita Sallmyr, Dept of Medical Microbiology, Malmö University Hospital, Entrance 78, 5th floor, SE-205 02 Malmö, SWEDEN

    Author : Annahita Sallmyr; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; enzymology; virology; mycology; mykologi; virologi; Proteiner; enzymologi; bacteriology; Microbiology; Sjögren s syndrome; HL60; PMN; Ku86v; Ku86; DNA-PK; DNA DSBs; NHEJ; Proteins; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi;

    Abstract : DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) is a holoenzyme consisting of a regulatory subunit, the heterodimeric Ku70/86, and a catalytic subunit known as DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs). DNA-PK takes part in a number of cellular functions including growth control, immunoglobulin gene rearrangement and DNA repair. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pathogenic Neisseria infections of human neutrophils and epithelial cells : focusing on host responses and immune evasion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Niklas Söderholm; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neisseria meningitidis; Neisseria gonorrhoeae; Neutrophils; PMN; Epithelial cells; Polarized cells; Type IV pili; Adherence; Cell cycle; DNA damage; Lactobacillus; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : N. meningitidis and N. gonorrhoeae are obligate human pathogens that colonize mucosal surfaces and are often carried asymptomatically. These bacteria have developed adhesive structures that promote adherence to host cells and efficient colonization of new hosts. READ MORE

  3. 3. Function of granulocytes after burns and trauma, associations with pulmonary vascular permeability, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and immunomodulation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Joakim Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ARDS; azurocidin; burn; CAP-37; critical care; granulocyte; HBP; histamine; intensive care; leucocyte; leukocyte; mediator; methylhistamine; MOF; oedema; neutrophil; permeability; PMN; trauma; vascular permeability;

    Abstract : Background: Our innate immunesystem protects us from infections but, since its methods is not all specific for microorganisms, may also induce collateral damage.Severe physical injury often proved deadly throughout evolution. Such injuries may induce massive collateral damage. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interactions between whole blood and TiO₂ surfaces with focus on adhesion and activation of PMN granulocytes

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Cecilia Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; titanium; TiO2; surface roughness; oxide thickness; wettability; whole blood; inflammation; wound healing; platelets; PMN granulocytes; adhesion; activation; receptor expression; respiratory burst.;

    Abstract : Foreign materials come in contact with the human body more and more frequently. The surgical procedure of inserting an implant into the body will cause bleeding, evoke an inflammatory response and initiate a healing process, ultimately leading to acceptance or rejection of the material.

  5. 5. Protein S-100, inflammatory and haemostatic mediators in paediatric open heart surgery. Influence of clinical variables and a biocompatible cardiopulmonary bypass system

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Eva Jensen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiopulmonary bypass; biocompatible; S-100; Down s syndrome; inflammatory response; complement; cytokines; PMN elastase; haemostasis; coagulation; fibrinolysis;

    Abstract : Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is used in most operations when correcting congenital heart malformations. Postoperative neurological problems (temporary or permanent) are complications of the procedure. These neurological injuries, especially if they are minor, are difficult to recognise in small children. READ MORE
