  1. 1. Cardiovascular risk indicators in adolescents the Umeå youth study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Erik Bergström; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular risk factors; adolescents; serum lipids; serum insulin; serum ferritin; anthropometry; blood pressure; physical fitness; physical activity; diet; smoking; socio-economic status;

    Abstract : Atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (CVD), particularly coronary heart disease (CHD) and cerebrovascular disease, are today major causes of death in the industrialised parts of the world. There are evidence to suggest that the atherosclerotic process starts in childhood, implying that preventive measures should be implemented already in children and adolescents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulatory pathways and virulence inhibition in Listeria monocytogenes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Christopher Andersson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Listeria monocytogenes; PrfA; ActA; infection; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Listeria monocytogenes is a rod-shaped Gram positive bacterium. It generally exist ubiquitously in nature, where it lives as a saprophyte. Occasionally it however enters the food chain, from where it can be ingested by humans and cause gastro-intestinal distress. In immunocompetent individuals L. READ MORE

  3. 3. Persistent infection by Yersinia pseudotuberculosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Kemal Avican; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Persistent infection; RNA-seq; PMNs; Yersinia; Transcriptome; wrba; fnr; rovA; arcA; rfaH; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Enteropathogenic Yersinia species can infect many mammalian organs such as the small intestine, cecum, Peyer’s patches, liver, spleen, and lung and cause diseases that resemble a typhoid-like syndrome, as seen for other enteropathogens. We found that sublethal infection doses of Y. READ MORE

  4. 4. Multiple functions of YopN in the Yersinia pseudotuberculosis type III secretion system from regulation to in vivo infection

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Sarp Bamyaci; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Type III secretion system; Yersinia; YopN; virulence; phagocytosis; mouse infection; secretion kinetics;

    Abstract : The type 3 secretion systems (T3SSs) are virulence mechanisms used by various Gram-negative bacteria to overcome the host immunity. They are often target-cell contact induced and activated. Activation results in targeting of virulence effector substrates into host cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multifaceted RNA-mediated regulatory mechanisms in Streptococcus pyogenes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Anaïs Le Rhun; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Streptococcus pyogenes; small RNAs; CRISPR; Cas9; tracrRNA; RNases; gene expression; RNA sequencing; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Bacterial pathogens rely on precise regulation of gene expression to coordinate host infection processes and resist invasion by mobile genetic elements. An interconnected network of protein and RNA regulators dynamically controls the expression of virulence factors using a variety of mechanisms. READ MORE
