  1. 1. Coiled coil Cytoskeleton in Bacterial Cell Architecture : Studies of Growth and Development in Streptomyces

    Author : Sonchita Bagchi; Nora Ausmees; Joseph McCormick; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coiled coil proteins; Bacterial cytoskeleton; Differentiation; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Bacterial cytoskeleton is an exciting and relatively new field of research. Recent findings have proven that microbes are well-organized and neatly structured organisms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bacterial antibody hydrolyzing enzymes – as bacterial virulence factors and biotechnological tools

    Author : Eleni Bratanis; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunoglobulins; Immunomodulation; Antibody mediated immunity; Glycosylation; Bacterial virulence; Bacterial enzymes; Biotechnology; streptococcus pyogenes; Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus;

    Abstract : Antibodies are an essential part of the human immune system, and antibody mediated immunity has been an area of interest for many researchers for almost a century. An accumulation of knowledge regarding antibody structure, glycosylation and receptor interactions has contributed to the current understanding of antibody mediated immunity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Anti-Virulence Antimicrobials, Discovery and Development of Sortase A Inhibitors and Investigations of Bacterial Phenotypes

    Author : Patrick M. Wehrli; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Sortase A; SrtA; Inhibitors; Anti-virulence; Bacterial analysis; FTIR spectroscopy; Bacterial phenotyping; Design of Experiment; Multivariate Data Analysis; PCA; ToF-SIMS; Time-of-flight secondary-ion-mass-spectrometry; Lipid analysis; ppGpp; Stringent response;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance is an emerging and serious threat to public health. Immediate actions are required to preserve current antibiotics while intensifying research efforts towards the development of new effective therapeutics. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bacterial Resistance to Antimicrobial Peptides : Rates, Mechanisms and Fitness Effects

    Author : Maria Pränting; Dan Andersson; Ian Chopra; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : antimicrobial peptides; antibiotic resistance; fitness cost; bacterial evolution; small colony variants; cyclotides; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : The rapid emergence of bacterial resistance to antibiotics has necessitated the development of alternative treatment strategies. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are important immune system components that kill microbes rapidly and have broad activity-spectra, making them promising leads for new pharmaceuticals. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Colonization Strategies of Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae - Bacterial Colonization Factors and Vaccine Development

    Author : Farshid Jalalvand; Malmö Klinisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ABC-transporter; bacterial colonization; Haemophilus influenzae; Haemophilus Protein F; laminin; NTHi; pathogenesis; vaccine; virulence; vitronectin.;

    Abstract : Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is a remarkably proficient colonizer of the human respiratory tract. The aim of this thesis has been to characterize currently known, and identify novel, bacterial factors involved in the key processes of colonization and pathogenesis, namely adherence to host tissue and evasion of the host innate immunity.
