  1. 1. Human Endogenous Retroviruses: Studies on Transcriptional Activity and Genetic Variability

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Patrik Medstrand; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; virology; bacteriology; HERVs; Human endogenous retrovirus sequences; reverse transcriptase; Microbiology; differential RNA expression.; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are believed to be remains of germ-line infections that have become fixed in the population. They are involved in pathophysiological conditions, in mechanisms leading to infection protection, and directly in the physiology of the organism by participating in the regulation of cellular gene expression.

  2. 2. Polyomavirus infections in humans

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Annika Lundstig; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Polyomaviruses; tumour virology; BK virus; neuroblastoma; maternal infection; Real Time PCR; enzyme immunoassay; seroprevalence; JC virus; SV40; virus like particles VLPs ; seroepidemiology; biobank; mesothelioma tissues; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : The human polyomaviruses BKV and JCV are endemic and infect > 70% of population worldwide. Primary infections occur during childhood and are largely subclinical. Following primary infection, both viruses persist as latent infections in the kidneys and B lymphocytes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nuclear mechanisms in cell death induced by HAMLET (human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumour cells)

    University dissertation from Caroline Düringer, Sölvegatan 23, 22362 Lund

    Author : Caroline Düringer; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mikrobiologi; virology; mykologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mycology; bacteriology; Microbiology; chromatin; histones; apoptosis; alpha-lactalbumin; programmed cell death;

    Abstract : HAMLET (human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumour cells), a protein-lipid complex originally isolated from human milk, induces programmed cell death selectively in tumour cells. It consists of partially unfolded alpha-lactalbumin in complex with oleic acid. READ MORE

  4. 4. The quest for new improved adenovirus gene therapy vectors against glioma tumours

    University dissertation from Umeå : Klinisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Johan Skog; Umeå universitet.; [2005]

    Abstract : Gene therapy has received much attention the last decade as a method to correct a number of disorders arising from a defective gene. Gene therapy can be defined as the introduction of a functional genetic element into a cell for a therapeutic purpose. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cutaneous Human Papillomaviruses

    University dissertation from Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Kristina Hazard; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Skin cancer; HPV heterogeneity; Persistence; Human Papillomavirus; Phylogeny; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) exist as more than 100 distinct types. Variants of HPVs appear to be common findings while HPV subtypes have been considered rare. New information about subtypes has recently been reported by us. READ MORE
