  1. 1. Exoenzyme S of Pseudomonas aeruginosa : cellular targets and interaction with 14-3-3

    Author : Lubna Yasmin; Bengt Hallberg; Joan Olson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ExoS; ADP-ribosylation; 14-3-3 protein; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Small GTPases; RAS; RAP; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that is a serious problem for immuno-compromised patients. Toxins such as exoenzyme (Exo) S, ExoT, ExoY and ExoU are secreted and translocated from the bacteria into the eukaryotic cell via the bacterial encoded type III secretion system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cellular targets of Pseudomonas aeruginosa toxin Exoenzyme S

    Author : Maria Henriksson; Bengt Hallberg; Lars Rönnstrand; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; ADP-ribosylation; GAP; Ras superfamily; NAD; ExoS; 14-3-3; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; molecular cell biology; molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that can cause life-threatening infections in immunocompromised patients. It uses a type III secretion dependent mechanism to translocate toxic effector proteins directly into the eukaryotic cell. READ MORE

  4. 4. Carbapenem resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Author : Christian Giske; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Carbapenem (imipenem and meropenem) resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa is increasing, with global resistance rates approaching 20%. The most common resistance mechanisms are down-regulation of the porin OprD, and increased activity of multi-drug efflux pumps, primarily MexAB-OprM. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards novel antibacterials : Synthesis and identification of natural product inspired inhibitors of Chlamydia trachomatis and development of chemical probes targeting virulence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Author : Michael Saleeb; Mikael Elofsson; Anna Linusson Jonsson; Andreas Kirschning; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antibacterials; antibiotics; small molecules; natural products; benzofuran; dihydrobenzofuran; the type III secretion system; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Chlamydia trachomatis; phenotypic screening; high-throughput screening; surface plasmon resonance; drug discovery; bacterial toxins; enzyme inhibitors; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance has evolved significantly to become one of the serious threats to public health today. Yet, the pipeline of new antibiotics is drying up and is lagging behind the challenging needs. READ MORE
