  1. 1. A Study on Trypanosomal Polyamine Biosynthetic Enzymes

    University dissertation from Sima Nasizadeh BMC F13 S-211 84 Lund Sweden

    Author : Sima Nasizadeh; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cell cycle; protein turnover; trypanosomatids; polyamines; Ornithine decarboxylase; S-adenosylmethione decarboxylase; Parasitology human and animal ; Parasitologi människa och djur ;

    Abstract : The polyamines, putrescine, spermidine, and spermine, are essential for all forms of life. The polyamine biosynthetic pathway has been shown to be a potential target for drugs against various trypanosomal parasitic diseases. READ MORE

  2. 2. LYME BORRELIOSIS Detection and identification of the infecting genotype

    University dissertation from Katharina Ornstein, Dep of Infectious Diseases, University Hospital, 221 85 Lund

    Author : Katharina Ornstein; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parasitologi människa och djur ; Parasitology human and animal ; Infektioner; Infections; PCR; genospecies; Lyme borreliosis; Borrelia burgdorferi; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Lyme borreliosis is caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, a bacterium with a parasitic life-style, which is transmitted between hosts by the Ixodes tick-vector. Humans will incidentally become infected. The resulting illness can involve the skin, nervous system, joints and heart. READ MORE

  3. 3. Causes and consequences of blood parasite infections in birds

    University dissertation from Martin Stjernman, Ecology building, S-223 62, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Martin Stjernman; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi; Parasitologi människa och djur ; Parasitology human and animal ; maternal transfer; stabilising selection; parasite resistance; parasites; trade-off; cost of reproduction; Ficedula hypoleuca; pied flycatcher; Haemoproteus; blue tit; Parus caeruleus;

    Abstract : Parasites are ubiquitous and can cause significant fitness reductions to their hosts. Therefore, selection for the evolution of host resistance should be strong. However, resistance may be costly and should be traded-off against other fitness related traits. READ MORE

  4. 4. Avian Malaria and Related Blood Parasites: Molecular Diversity, Ecology and Evolution

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Olof Hellgren; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; diversity; Plasmodium; bird-migration; transmission; blackfly; host-specificity; host-preference; cytochrome b; DHFR-TS; recombination; phylogeny; Ecology; Ekologi; Genetics; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik; Parasitology human and animal ; Haemoproteus; Leucocytozoon; Parasitologi människa och djur ; Animal ecology; Djurekologi; Natural science; Naturvetenskap;

    Abstract : Malaria-like parasites consist of a large group of species that infects primates, rodents, bats, lizard and birds. I have focused on parasites from the genera Haemoproteus, Plasmodium and Leucocytozoon that are infecting birds. READ MORE

  5. 5. Epidemiology and population structure of Campylobacter jejuni and related organisms in wild birds

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Jonas Waldenström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; epidemiology; Campylobacter lari; population structure; Helicobacter canadensis; Ecology; Parasitology human and animal ; Animal ecology; Djurekologi; Parasitologi människa och djur ; migration; Ekologi; wild birds; Sweden; Campylobacter jejuni;

    Abstract : Campylobacter jejuni is one of the most common causes to bacterial gastroenteritis in the industrialised world. Also other species of the Campylobacter genus give rise to human infections. C. jejuni occurs in many different animal hosts and can be isolated from water sources. READ MORE
