  3. 3. Structural Basis of Immune Receptor Binding by Staphylococcal Superantigens

    Author : Karin Rödström; Medicinsk strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Superantigen; X-ray Crystallography; T cell receptor; Major histocompatibility complex;

    Abstract : Superantigens (SAgs) are toxins capable of inducing a massive immune response, leading to severe disease. They are secreted by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes, which produce the staphylococcal enterotoxins and streptococcal pyogenic exotoxins, respectively. READ MORE

  4. 4. The importance of major histocompatibility complex class II genes for the development of autoimmune inflammation

    Author : Ulrica Brunsberg; Immunologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; serology; Immunology; Mhc polymorphism arthritis evolution; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis the role of major histocompatibility complex (Mhc) class II molecules in development of autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), was studied. By combining an experimental model for RA, collagen type II induced arthritis (CIA), with molecular biology methods the importance of polymorphism in Mhc class II genes for disease development was investigated.

  5. 5. Avian MHC: variation and selection in the wild

    Author : Helena Westerdahl; MEMEG; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polymorphism; balancing selection; cDNA; avian malaria; great reed warbler; Djurekologi; bird; Animal ecology; immune defence; MHC class II; Major Histocompatibility Complex; MHC class I;

    Abstract : In vertebrates the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) plays a central role in the specific immune defence against various pathogens. Compared with other coding genes the MHC genes exhibit an extremely high level of polymorphism that is maintained by balancing selection. READ MORE
