  1. 1. Mast cells: bad enemies or good friends? : A study of the effects of IgG immune complexes on mast cell biology

    Författare :Lisa M Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mast cell; Fc receptor; Apoptosis; Immune complex; Adjuvant; CTA1-DD.;

    Sammanfattning : Mast cells are classically defined as bad enemies to human health due to their critical involvement in IgE-dependent allergy by virtue of the expression of the high affinity IgE receptor, FcgammaRI, on these cells. However, mouse mast cells also express FcgammaRIIB and FcgammaRIIIA, two receptors that bind IgG especially in the form of IgG immune complexes. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies on streptococcal M proteins. Interactions with IgA and human complement regulators

    Författare :Eskil Johnsson; Institutionen för laboratoriemedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; antigenic variation; factor H; C4b-binding protein; Fc-receptor; IgA; Streptococcus pyogenes; M protein; mykologi; virologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; virology; mycology; bacteriology;

    Sammanfattning : The human pathogenic bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes (group A Streptococcus) expresses several different virulence factors. Of these, the M protein is regarded as one of the most important, because it confers resistance to phagocytosis, allowing the bacterium to multiply in blood. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Human adipose tissue. Genes predominantly expressed in the visceral depot and in hypertrophic adipocytes

    Författare :Jenny Palming; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :obesity; type 2 diabetes; adipose tissue depots; complement system; plasma cell; Fc receptor; serum amyloid A; NAD P H:quinone oxidoreductase 1; DNA microarray;

    Sammanfattning : The obesity prevalence is increasing worldwide and obesity is closely linked to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Both visceral fat accumulation and enlarged adipocyte size are risk factors for obesity related metabolic disorders. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Protein engineering has had an immense impact on the development of biological drugs, including replacement therapies with engineered versions of insulin or factor VIII to treat diabetes or bleeding disorders, and monoclonal antibodies to treat cancer and various other malignancies. Now, with the next generation of treatment modalities coming up, including monoclonal reagents based on alternative scaffolds, gene and cell therapies, the importance of protein engineering to tailor-make these treatments is likely to increase further.
