  1. 1. Vesicle-mediated and free soluble delivery of bacterial effector proteins by oral and systemic pathogens

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Bernard Thay; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Periodontitis; Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans; Staphylococcus aureus; membrane vesicles; vesicle-host cell interaction; protein delivery; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Periodontitis, the primary cause of tooth-loss worldwide, is a bacterially induced chronic inflammatory disease of the periodontium. It is associated with systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, pathogenic mechanisms of periodontitis-associated bacteria that may contribute to the CVD association are unclear. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cellular and molecular responses of periodontal connective tissue cells to Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans cytolethal distending toxin

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Georgios N. Belibasakis; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans; cytolethal distending toxin; periodontal connective tissue cells; localized aggressive periodontitis; growth arrest; bone resorption; receptor activator of NF-κB ligand; osteoprotegerin; pro-inflammatory cytokines; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans is present in elevated proportions and numbers in dental bacterial biofilms of patients with localized aggressive periodontitis. This variant of periodontal disease, occurring in adolescents and young adults, is characterized by rapid and severe destruction of the connective tissues and bone supporting the teeth, eventually culminating in tooth loss.

    Abstract : Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans is an oral bacterium that is mainly associated with aggressive forms of periodontitis, which most often starts at an early age. Amongst the virulence factors of A. READ MORE

  4. 4. Outer membrane vesicle-mediated export of virulence factors from Gram-negative bacteria

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Pramod Kumar Rompikuntal; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
