  1. 1. Microbial risk assessment and its implications for risk management in urban water systems

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Therese Westrell; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantitative microbial risk assessment; pathogens; urban; decentralised; failures; noroviruses; water consumption; HACCP; drinking water; wastewater; sludge; faeces; risk management; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Water in nature and society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : Infectious disease can be transmitted via various environmental pathways, many of which are incorporated into our water and wastewater systems. Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) can be a valuable tool in identifying hazard exposure pathways and estimating their associated health impacts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Computer-Assisted Carbohydrate Structural Studies and Drug Discovery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Organic Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Magnus Lundborg; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbohydrates; molecular docking; molecular dynamics simulation; fragment-based virtual screening; NMR spectroscopy; computer-aided drug design; computer-aided structure elucidation; glycosyltransferases; Escherichia coli; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Carbohydrates are abundant in nature and have functions ranging from energy storage to acting as structural components. Analysis of carbohydrate structures is important and can be used for, for instance, clinical diagnosis of diseases as well as in bacterial studies. The complexity of glycans makes it difficult to determine their structures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computational Prediction and Analysis of Protein-Carbohydrate and Protein-Protein Interactions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Organic Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Ashok Krishna Chaitanya Koppisetty; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arylsulfatase-A; Norovirus VA387; Molecular Dynamics; Saposin B; Computational Docking;

    Abstract : The structure and energetics of protein-carbohydrate and protein-protein interactions are of great interest due to their importance in many biological phenomena. Two cases of protein-carbohydrate interactions and one case of protein-protein interactions were predicted and analyzed using existing computational methods. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparative analysis of pathogen occurrence in wastewater management strategies for barrier function and microbial control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Abstract : This project was initiated to fill knowledge gaps on the occurrence of pathogens in different streams of wastewater, e.g. greywater and domestic wastewater. READ MORE

  5. 5. Norovirus, causative agent of winter vomiting disease, exploits several histo-blood group glycans for adhesion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Gustaf E Rydell; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; norovirus; glycobiology; virus-like particle; FUT2; ABO H histo-blood group antigen; sialyl Lewis x; neoglycoprotein; glycosphingolipid; QCM-D; supported lipid bilayer;

    Abstract : Norovirus is recognized as the major cause of outbreaks of gastroenteritis world-wide, yet no vaccines or drugs are available for prevention or treatment of the virus infection. Challenge studies and binding studies using virus-like particles (VLPs) have suggested susceptibility to norovirus infection to be associated with secretor status. READ MORE
