  1. 1. Streptococcal M protein and human C4BP

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Jenny J Persson; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Infektioner; Infections; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; human C4BP; M protein; antigenic variation; sequence variability; Streptococcus pyogenes; innate immunity;

    Sammanfattning : Antigenic variation of surface proteins allows microorganisms to evade the immune system of the infected host. This phenomenon represents an apparent paradox, because the variable protein must retain an important function, while its antigenic properties vary extensively. LÄS MER

  2. 2. MORAXELLA CATARRHALIS OUTER MEMBRANE PROTEINS AND INTERACTIONS WITH THE HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM

    Detta är en avhandling från Medicinsk Mikrobiologi Institutionen för Laboratorie Medicin Universitetssjukhuset MAS Lunds Universitet

    Författare :Therése Nordström; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mycology; Mikrobiologi; virology; Microbiology; C4BP; B-cells; UspA2; Moraxella catarrhalis; virologi; mykologi; bakteriologi; bacteriology; C3; IgD; Moraxella IgD-bindning protein; UspA1;

    Sammanfattning : Moraxella catarrhalis is frequently colonizing the human respiratory tract, particularly in children. This gram-negative bacterium has during the last two decades been recognized as a pathogen causing otitis media in children and lower respiratory tract infections in adults with predisposing conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

  3. 3. Interactions between platelets and complement with implications for the regulation at surfaces

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Per H. Nilsson; Kristina Nilsson Ekdahl; John Lambris; Ian Nicholls; Berhane Ghebrehiwet; [2012]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; complement system activation; regulation ; platelets activation; regulation ; biomaterials; biocompatibility; chondroitin sulfate-A; apyrase; C1q; C3; factor H; C4BP; ADP; Biomedicinsk vetenskap; Biomedical Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Disturbances of host integrity have the potential to evoke activation of innate immunologic and hemostatic protection mechanisms in blood. Irrespective of whether the activating stimulus is typically immunogenic or thrombotic, it will generally affect both the complement system and platelets to a certain degree. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Crosstalk Between Activated Platelets and the Complement System

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Osama A. Hamad; Bo Nilsson; Kristina Ekdahl-Nilsson; Lennart Truedsson; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelets; activated platelets; TRAP; chondroitin sulfate; C1q; factor H; C4BP; C3; Compstatin; complement; platelet-leukocyte complexes; platelet microparticles; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology Clinical immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi Klinisk immunologi; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : Several studies have shown that complement and thrombotic events co-exist. Platelets have been suspected to act as the bridge between the two cascade systems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Structural and functional studies of C4b-binding protein (C4BP)

    Detta är en avhandling från Lena Kask, Wallenberg Laboratory, floor 6, entrance 46, UMAS, S-205 02 Malmö

    Författare :Lena Kask; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phagocytosis; apoptosis; protein S; complement control protein CCP domains; factor H fH ; Complement; C4b-binding protein C4BP ; intracellular assembly; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : The subject of this thesis is complement inhibitor C4b-binding protein (C4BP), on which we have performed both structural and functional studies. Complement is part of the innate immune defence and eliminates microbes, solubilises immune complexes and is involved in the clearance of apoptotic cells. LÄS MER
