  2. 2. Prediction of 3D structures of oligosaccharides. Methodological development and studies on saccharide antigens of interest for vaccine design

    Author : Jimmy Rosen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oligosaccharide; conformation; 3D structure; O-antigen; Shigella dysenteriae; Escherichia coli; Burkholderia cepacia; Schistosoma mansoni; filtered systematic search; genetic algorithm;

    Abstract : This thesis presents 3D structure predictions of five immunologically active surfacepolysaccharides of pathogens, which are of interest as targets for development of glycoconjugatevaccines. Furthermore it describes two methods which have been used for theconformational predictionsThe Shigella dysenteriae type 2 Oantigenwas predicted to form a compact helicalstructure with three repeating pentasaccharide units per turn.

  3. 3. Molecular dissection of established and proposed members of the Op18/Stathmin family of tubulin binding proteins

    University dissertation from Umeå : Molekylärbiologi (Medicinska fakulteten)

    Author : Kristoffer Brännström; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Op18 Stathmin; Sm16; tubulin; microtubule; schistosoma mansoni; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : My initial aim was a functional analysis of the conserved Op18/stathmin family of microtubule-regulators, which includes the ubiquitous cytosolic Op18 protein and the neural membrane-attached RB3 and SCG10 proteins. The solved X-ray structure has shown that these proteins form a complex with tubulin -heterodimers via two imperfect helical repeats, which result in two head-to-tail aligned heterodimers in a tandem-tubulin complex.

  4. 4. Immunopathogenesis of schistosomiasis mansoni : Immunity and pathology in a primary and a secondary infection following chemotherapy in the mouse and the baboo models

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Idle Omar Farah; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology and anatomy; Baboon; BALB c mice; Chemotherapy; Cytokines; Fibrosis; Granuloma; Modulation; Pathology; Reinfection; Schistosoma mansoni; Th1; Th2; Fysiologi och anatomi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : This thesis describes a series of experiments aimed at elucidating the mechanisms ofimmunity and pathology elicited by both a primary infection and a reinfection exposure toSchistosoma mansoni following chemotherapy. The effects of a single large cercarial doseand a cumulatively equivalent dose, administered as multiple small doses are compared. READ MORE

  5. 5. Helminths and Immunity against Tuberculosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Daniel Elias; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tuberculosis; BCG; helminths; immunomodulation; vaccination;

    Abstract : The efficacy of Bacille Calmette Gueri n (BCG) is low and incidence of tuberculosis (TB) is high in those areas where helminths are endemic. Protection against tuberculosis requires strong cell mediated immunity while chronic helminth infections induce responses characterized by dominant Th2 responses as well as up-regulated regulatory T cell activity.
