  1. 1. Microbial Responses to Antibiotics – Stability of Resistance and Extended Potential of Targeting the Folate Synthesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Jönsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; sulfonamide resistance; macrolide; commensal flora; substrate channeling; folate synthesis; Molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Resistance to antimicrobials is an increasing problem in the world of today, and develops faster than man can counter. It is therefore of importance to study metabolic pathways in order to develop new antibiotics, but also to understand how resistance spreads and stabilizes in microbial populations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Macrolide Antibiotics in Bacterial Protein Synthesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin Lovmar; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; protein synthesis; macrolides; resistance; initiation of translation; non-competitive inhibitors; kinetics; translation accuracy; proof-reading; Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Macrolides are a large group of clinically relevant antibiotics that inhibit protein synthesis by binding to the large ribosomal subunit in the peptide exit tunnel, close to the peptidyl transferase center (PTC). We have shown that the peptide length of the resulting peptidyl-tRNA drop-off products is proportional to the distance between the PTC and the respective macrolide in the tunnel. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular detection and epidemiological studies of atypical bacteria causing respiratory tract infections

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karolina Gullsby; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chlamydia pneumoniae; Mycoplasma pneumoniae; Bordetella pertussis; real-time PCR; P1 typing; MLVA; whole-genome sequencing; macrolide resistance; molecular diagnostics; molecular epidemiology;

    Abstract : Respiratory infections are common causes of morbidity and mortality. Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Bordetella pertussis cause respiratory infection, often with similar symptoms. Molecular diagnostic methods are preferred since these bacteria are difficult to culture. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of resistance to quinolones, sulfonamide and trimethoprim in Campylobacter jejuni as well as to macrolides in the related bacterium, Helicobacter pylori

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Amera Gibreel; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; Pharmaceutical Microbiology; farmaceutisk mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Gastroenteritis caused by C. jejuni is usually a mild to moderate self-limiting disease. Treatment is recommended in some cases. In recent years, quinolones have been increasingly used to treat acute bacterial enteritis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Group A Streptococci; Epidemiology and Genetics of Antibiotic Resistance

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Aftab Jasir; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; typing; epidemiology; M protein; emm gene; erythromycin; tetracycline; macrolides; streptococci; antibiotics; mykologi; virologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; virology; bacteriology;

    Abstract : Group A streptococci (GAS) cause throat and skin infections, severe invasive diseases as well as the non-suppurative complications acute rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis. GAS have retained susceptibility to betalactam drugs, but resistance to alternative antibiotics is of concern. READ MORE
