  1. 1. Synthesis and investigation of bacterial effector molecules

    Author : Michael Franz Albers; Christian Hedberg; Christian Hackenberger; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bacterial effectors; organic synthesis; Legionella; PTM; peptide synthesis; nucleotide chemistry; Biorganic Chemistry; bioorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : During infections, bacterial microorganisms initiate profound interactions with mammalian host cells. Usually defense mechanisms of the host destroy intruding bacteria in rapid manner. However, many bacterial pathogens have evolved in a way to avoid these mechanisms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Expansion of circulatory Vγ9Vδ2 T cells in tularemia and Pontiac fever, two intracellular bacterial diseases with widely different clinical expression

    Author : Michal Kroca; Dieter Kabelitz; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; Francisella tularensis; Gamma-delta T cell; Legionella; Legionellosis; Lymphocyte; T cell Tularemia; Immunologi; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Although well established that human Vγ9Vδ2 T cells may expand in circulation during intracellular bacterial infections, most underlying studies included only a few cases and only some diseases had been studied so far. In tularemia, a severe invasive disease, only one patient had been described. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy Efficient Eradication of Legionella in Hot Water Systems

    Author : Lobna Altorkmany; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Disease related to unsafe water, poor sanitation, and lack of hygiene is some of the most common causes of illness and death all around the world. Since the first detection of Legionella in Philadelphia 1976, Legionella is recognized to cause Legionellosis which is associated with two distinct forms: Legionnaires’ disease and Pontiac fever.

  4. 4. Detection and epidemiologic subtyping of Legionella pneumophilia using DNA-based molecular methods

    Author : Sverker Bernander; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Legionella; AFLP; PFGE; Nested PCR; lag-1; hospital; outbreaks;

    Abstract : Legionella pneumophila causes 2 - 6 % of hospitalised pneumonia cases. Several community- and hospital-acquired outbreaks have been reported over the years. Legionnaires' disease (LD) or legionellosis is also a frequent cause of pneumonia amongst travellers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impact of Drinking Water Treatment and Pipe Biofilms on Bacterial Dynamics in the Distribution System

    Author : Kristjan Pullerits; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drinking water treatment; Drinking water treatment plant; UV; Slow sand filter; Ultrafiltration; Drinking water distribution system; Biofilm; Biostability; Nitrification; Bacterial communities; Flow cytometry; Next-generation sequencing; 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses drinking water quality and microbiology in full-scale drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs). It examines how UV irradiation and slow sand filters (SSFs) alter the water bacteriome, and how the biofilm in the DWDS affects the drinking water quality. READ MORE
