  1. 1. Molecular Diagnosis of Common Viral Infectious Diseases Based on Real-Time PCR

    Author : Nahla Mohamed; Jonas Blomberg; Jan Fohlman; Elgh Fredrik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Molecular biology; Microbiology; Virology; rTth DNA polymerase; UNG; QPCR; RNA virus; broadly targeted PCR; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Molecular biology has become an integral part of the diagnosis of infectious diseases. Recently, quantitative real-time PCR (QPCR) methods (often in the form of so-called TaqMan® systems) have been developed for the diagnosis of a wide range of infectious diseases; these techniques found valuable clinical application in the diagnosis and evaluation of progress and therapeutic success of viral diseases.

  2. 2. Genomic and morphological diversity of marine planktonic diatom-diazotroph associations : a continuum of integration and diversification through geological time

    Abstract : Symbioses between eukaryotes and nitrogen (N2)-fixing cyanobacteria (or diazotrophs) are quite common in the plankton community. A few genera of diatoms (Bacillariophyceae) such as Rhizosolenia, Hemiaulus and Chaetoceros are well known to form symbioses with the heterocystous diazotrophic cyanobacteria Richelia intracellularis and Calothrix rhizosoleniae.

  3. 3. Significance of N2 fixing planktonic symbioses for open ocean ecosystems

    Author : Marcus Stenegren; Rachel A. Foster; Agneta Andersson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nitrogen fixation; diazotrophs; symbiosis; DDA; cyanobacteria; qPCR; piecewise SEM; microarray; tropics; subtropics; marine; open ocean; Richelia; Calothrix; Marine Ecology; marin ekologi;

    Abstract : Di-nitrogen (N2) fixers, also called diazotrophs, are able to reduce atmospheric N2 into bioavailable nitrogen, giving them an advantage in open ocean regions with low dissolved inorganic nitrogen concentrations. The focus of this thesis are three lineages of symbiotic heterocystous filamentous types (het-1, het-2 and het-3), that associate with several genera of microalgae called diatoms (collectively referred to as Diatom Diazotroph Associations, DDAs).

  4. 4. Sex differences in immune response and sex hormone receptor expression in healthy individuals and during viral infection

    Abstract : There is sex-bias in morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases. Infections kill more men than women and several studies have pointed out differences in the immune system as a reason. The sex hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone all shape the effect of the immune response on multiple levels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Improved diagnosis and prediction of community-acquired pneumonia

    Author : Alicia Edin; Anders F. Johansson; Anders Sjöstedt; Annika Allard; Thomas Schön; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Community-acquired pneumonia; infection; diagnosis; qPCR; metabolites; metabolomics;

    Abstract : Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although there is wide variation in the microbial etiology, CAP may manifest with similar symptoms, making institution of proper treatment challenging. READ MORE
