    Author : Thomas Borén; Bo Lenntorp; Thomas Lundén; Jussi Jauhiainen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Time-space; lifeworld; Hägerstrand; Habermas; Lotman; participant observation; post-Soviet transformation; time-geography; cultural geography; cultural semiotics; urban studies; everyday life; Soviet cartography; local self-government; Ligovo; Uritsk; Krasnosel skii raion.; Other earth sciences; Övrig geovetenskap;

    Abstract : This study develops a model for understanding spatial change and the construction of space as a meeting-place, and then employs it in order to show an otherwise little-known picture of (sub-)urban Russia and its transformation from Soviet times to today. The model is based on time-geographic ideas of time-space as a limited resource in which forces of various kinds struggle for access and form space in interaction with each other. READ MORE

  2. 2. Helicobacter pylori : molecular insights into regulation of adhesion properties

    Author : Pär Gideonsson; Anna Arnqvist; Thomas Borén; Hilde De Reuse; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Helicobacter pylori; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infects the human stomach and triggers an inflammatory response that damages the gastric tissue. This host-pathogen interplay has dire consequences as up to 20 % of infected individuals develop peptic ulcer disease or gastric cancer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Helicobacter pylori : multitalented adaptation of binding properties

    Author : Sara Henriksson; Thomas Borén; Göran Larson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Helicobacter pylori; adherence; receptor specificity; adaptation; pH; BabA; Leb; recombination; secretor phenotype; recombinant cell lines;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infects and persistently colonizes the stomach, which results in gastritis and in some individuals peptic ulcer disease or gastric cancer. Adherence of H. pylori to the epithelium is an important factor for development of disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Homeless in 'The People's Home' : Exploring the experiences of 'vulnerable EU citizens' in Stockholm, Sweden

Despite their prolonged presence and a great deal of political attention, there remains a lack of in-depth research into their experiences of homelessness in the city. READ MORE

  5. 5. Poly-and oligothiophenes : Optical probes for multimodal fluorescent assessment of biological processes

    Author : Karin Magnusson; Peter Nilsson; Per Hammarström; Thomas Borén; Linköpings universitet; []
