  1. 1. Antibiotic uptake in Gram-negative bacteria

    Author : Claudio Muheim; Daniel Daley; Jean-Marie Pagès; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Gram-negative bacteria; Antibiotic uptake; Outer membrane; Lipopolysaccharide; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The increasing emergence and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is a serious threat to public health. Of particular concern are Gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli, Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumoniae or Pseudomonas aeruginosa. READ MORE

  2. 2. Antibiotic resistance in Gram-negative bacilli : With focus on cephalosporin resistance mechanisms in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae

    Author : Owe Källman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Objectives. The objectives of this thesis were to study mechanisms conferring cefuroxime resistance in clinical non-ESBL (extended-spectrum beta-lactamase) producing isolates of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, as well as the presence of co-resistance to other antibiotics in the K. pneumoniae isolates.

  3. 3. Microbial Phosphorus Removal in Waste Stabilisation Pond Wastewater Treatment Systems

    Author : Lydia Ambakisye Mbwele; Gunnel Dalhmmar; Ingrid Faye; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Wastewater treatment; waste stabilisation ponds; activated sludge; biological phosphorus removal; tropical climate; A.hydrophylla; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Waste Stabilisation Ponds (WSPs) are characterised by low phosphorus (P) removal capacity. Heterotrophic bacteria are principal microbial agents in WSPs in addition to algae. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microbial Community Assembly during Aerobic Granulation

    Author : Raquel Liebana; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aerobic granular sludge; granulation; washout dynamics; membrane bioreactors; sequencing batch reactors; fluorescence in-situ hybridization; microbial community dynamics; reproducibility;

    Abstract : Environmental deterioration together with the increasingly restrictive legislation of water quality standards have led to a demand for compact, efficient and less energy consuming technologies for wastewater treatment. Aerobic granular membrane bioreactors (AGMBRs) combine the advantages of aerobic granular sludge and membrane filtration. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal - Carbon Sources, Nitrate as Electron Acceptor, and Characterisation of the Sludge Community

    Author : Magnus Christensson; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge; nitrate; carbon source; PAO; polyphosphate accumulating organisms; enhanced biological phosphorus removal; EBPR; characterisation; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) was studied in laboratory scale experiments as well as in a full scale EBPR process. The studies were focused on carbon source transformations, the use of nitrate as an electron acceptor and characterisation of the microflora. READ MORE
