  1. 1. Immunity & the butterfly A functional genomic study of natural variation in immunity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm

    Author : Naomi L.P. Keehnen; Christopher W. Wheat; Brian Lazzaro; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; eco-immunology; functional genomics; transcriptomics; innate immunity; selection dynamics; melanization; phagocytosis; population genetics; Pieris napi; populationsgenetik; Population Genetics;

    Abstract : Butterflies are ubiquitous and abundant, occurring in a wide variety of environments that contain diverse microbial communities with varied pathogenic pressures. These pathogens and parasites present a constant threat to organisms, and have led to the evolution of complex and intricate immune responses. READ MORE

    Abstract : The phenomenon known as immunothrombosis has garnered increased attention over the last few years. Much work has been done to characterize the cross talk between hemostasis and the innate immune system. READ MORE

  5. 5. Innate immunity in human atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction Role of CARD8 and NLRP3

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Geena Paramel Varghese; Karin Fransén; Allan Sirsjö; Liza Ljungberg; Johan Frostegård; [2017]
