  1. 6. Emerging tick-borne pathogens: on the ecology of multiple infections in ticks and reservoir hosts

    Författare :Martin Andersson; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Borrelia afzelii; ’Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis’; bank vole; Myodes glareolus; multiple infection; tick-borne diseases; vector-borne diseases; competition; facilitation; qPCR;

    Sammanfattning : Most animals will encounter several more or less severe infectious diseases during their lifetime, and simultaneous infections with more than one pathogen, or several different strains of the same pathogen, are common in natural populations. Ticks transmit a wide variety of different pathogens and can also be simultaneously infected with more than one pathogen. LÄS MER

  2. 7. The zoonotic pathogen Borrelia afzelii in its natural hosts : Bacterial dissemination and immuno-transcriptomics

    Författare :Xiuqin Zhong; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Borrelia afzelii; natural hosts; bacterial load; immune response; RNA-seq;

    Sammanfattning : Most pathogens can infect a number of different host species, but host species often differ considerably in susceptibility to a given pathogen. In the case of zoonotic pathogens, natural hosts typically present little or no disease symptoms, while humans and other “spill-over” hosts often present severe symptoms. LÄS MER

  3. 8. Contribution of the outer surface proteins of Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. to the pathogenesis of Lyme disease

    Författare :Maria Jonsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Borrelia burgdorferi; Lyme disease; Osp proteins; ospAB operon; gene regulation; pathogenicity;

    Sammanfattning : Borrelia burgdorferi s. l. is a spirochete which causes the multisystemic disorder Lyme disease. As the borreliae lack toxin production, the pathogenicity is thought to involve, at least in part, molecules from the outer surface. LÄS MER

  4. 9. LYME BORRELIOSIS Detection and identification of the infecting genotype

    Författare :Katharina Ornstein; Sektion III; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parasitologi människa och djur ; Parasitology human and animal ; Infektioner; Infections; PCR; genospecies; Lyme borreliosis; Borrelia burgdorferi; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Lyme borreliosis is caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, a bacterium with a parasitic life-style, which is transmitted between hosts by the Ixodes tick-vector. Humans will incidentally become infected. The resulting illness can involve the skin, nervous system, joints and heart. LÄS MER

  5. 10. Studies of immune responses to cell surface proteins of Helicobacter pylori and Borrelia burgdorferi by enzyme immunoassay and immunoblotting

    Författare :Ingrid Nilsson; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mikrobiologi; mycology; virology; B. burgdorferi; H.pylori; cell surface proteins; gel-electrophoresis; enzyme immunoassay; Western immunoblotting; bacteriology; Microbiology; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Helicobacter pylori and Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. can cause chronic infections by evading the immune system. These two human pathogens express a number of immunogenic cell surface proteins. LÄS MER
