  1. 1. Glutamate and GABA signalling components in the human brain and in immune cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Amol K. Bhandage; Bryndis Birnir; Gerard P. Ahern; [2016]
    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; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Glutamate and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) are the principal excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters in the central nervous system (CNS). They both can activate their ionotropic and metabotropic receptors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modulation of B cell access to antigen by passively administered antibodies an explanation for antibody feedback regulation?

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hui Xu; Birgitta Heyman; Helena Harris; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IgG; IgG3; IgE; suppression; enhancement; epitope masking; antigen transport; antigen presentation; follicular B cells; marginal zone B cells; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Antibody responses can be up- or down-regulated by passive administration of specific antibody together with antigen. Depending on the structure of the antigen and the antibody isotype, responses can be completely suppressed or enhanced up to a 1000-fold of what is seen in animals immunized with antigen alone.

  3. 3. Maternal immune characteristics and innate immune responses in the child in relation to allergic disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Petra Amoudruz; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Zsolt Szépfalusi; ; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The mechanistic factors responsible for the increase in allergic diseases are still not fully understood, but a reduced microbial stimulation seems to be one of the key issues. Research is now aiming at investigating the relationship between the innate immune system, involving the toll-like receptors, and allergy development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Malarial anaemia the potential involvement of Plasmodium falciparum rhoptry proteins

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Nancy Awah; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Malaria remains a challenging health problem in malaria endemic regions. Infection with malaria invariably leads to anaemia. The groups at risk of developing malarial anaemia include children below the age of five years and pregnant women, especially primigravidae. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of natural killer cells and inflammatory mediators in preeclamptic pregnancies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Nora Bachmayer; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Katarina Bremme; Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; ; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; preeclampsia; NK cells; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The maternal immune system must be able to adjust during pregnancy and accept the foetus that expresses paternal antigens. These changes are found both in placenta and circulation, including a mild inflammatory response. NK cells are abundant during the early part of pregnancy in placenta and are thought to be important for placental development. READ MORE
