  1. 1. DNA and protein interactions of mouse polyomavirus large T antigen

    Author : Ola Rönn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; T-antigen; DNA-binding; biosensor; enhancer; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Medical Virology; medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : Polyomaviruses require dividing cells to multiply. The regulatory genes express proteins, theT-antigens, necessary for this to occur. Large T-antigen (LT), is a phosphoprotein withmultiple intrinsic activities, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adoptive T Cell Therapy of Viral Infection and Cancer : Ex vivo Expansion of Cytomegalovirus- and Prostate Antigen-specific T Cells

    Author : Björn Carlsson; Magnus Essand; Thomas Tötterman; Malcolm Brenner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; Immunotherapy; Adoptive T cell therapy; Dendritic cell; T cell; Tetramer; Cytomegalovirus; Transplantation; pp65; Prostate cancer; TARP; Prostate antigens; Immunologi; Immunology; Immunologi;

    Abstract : The main focus of my thesis has been to develop protocols for generating antigen-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) and T helper cells (TH) for adoptive transfer to treat cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease and prostate cancer. CMV viremia is a severe complication in immunocompromised stem cell transplanted patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. T-cell regulation of immune responses to the Plasmodium falciparum antigen Pf155/RESA

    Author : Lalitha Kabilan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antigens; surface; immunology T-lymphocytes; Plasmodium falciparum;

    Abstract : Plasmodium falciparum is the cause of the most severe malaria inhumans. Due to the rapid resurgence of malaria in many parts of theworld extensive efforts have been made during the last few years todefine several P.falciparum antigens for inclusion in a vaccine. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human intestinal T lymphocytes : a comparative analysis of phenotype and function in normal and inflamed mucosa

    Author : Silvia Melgar; Nadine Cerf-Bensussan; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human intestinal mucosa; intraepithelial lymphocyte; lamina propria lymphocyte; γδ T cell; regulatory T cell; cytotoxicity; cytokine; basal lymphoid aggregate; ulcerative colitis; Crohn s disease;

    Abstract : The epithelial lining of the gut must allow immediate contact with beneficial components as nutrients and normal microflora. At the same time it runs the constant risk of attack from pathogenic microbes and noxious agents. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of T cell effector functions in the intestinal mucosa

    Author : Petra Holmkvist; Slemhinnans immunologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; T cells; memory; intestine; cytokines; differentiation; IL-18; inflammation; antigen presentation;

    Abstract : T lymphocytes are a critical cellular component of the adaptive immune response. They are generated in the thymus from bone marrow derived progenitors, where they undergo commitment to the T cell lineage and differentiate and mature into naïve CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. READ MORE
