    Sammanfattning : Listeria monocytogenes is a ubiquitous foodborne Gram-positive bacterium. Despite being mainly a soil bacterium, it can reach the food processing environment and contaminate food destined for human consumption, causing outbreaks. LÄS MER

  2. 2. New alternatives to combat Listeria monocytogenes and Chlamydia trachomatis : Design, synthesis, and evaluation of substituted ring-fused 2-pyridones as anti-virulent agents

    Författare :Martina Kulén; Fredrik Almqvist; Anna Linusson Jonsson; Fritiof Pontén; Morten B. Strøm; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antibiotic resistance; anti-virulence; Listeria monocytogenes; Chlamydia trachomatis; ring-fused 2-pyridone; organic synthesis; structure-based design; PrfA; drug design; structure-activity relationship;

    Sammanfattning : Antibiotic resistance has become a global health burden with the number of resistant bacteria continuously increasing. Antibiotic drugs act by being either bactericidal (killing bacteria) or bacteriostatic (inhibiting growth of bacteria). However, these modes of action increase the selective pressure on the bacteria.

    Sammanfattning : Antibiotic resistances are one of the biggest threats to global health and if we don’t change our behavior and way of using antibiotics we will end up in a ‘post-antibiotic era’, in which common infections and minor injuries can once kill again and up to 10 million deaths per year may occur by 2050. Therefore, there is a high need for new anti-bacterial drugs, especially of alternatives to existing antibiotics with already described resistances. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Regulatory pathways and virulence inhibition in Listeria monocytogenes

    Författare :Christopher Andersson; Jörgen Johansson; Debra Milton; Åke Forsberg; Claude Parsot; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Listeria monocytogenes; PrfA; ActA; infection; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : Listeria monocytogenes is a rod-shaped Gram positive bacterium. It generally exist ubiquitously in nature, where it lives as a saprophyte. Occasionally it however enters the food chain, from where it can be ingested by humans and cause gastro-intestinal distress. In immunocompetent individuals L. LÄS MER

  5. 5. RNA-mediated virulence gene regulation in the human pathogen Listeria monocytogenes

    Författare :Edmund Loh; Jörgen Johansson; Nancy Freitag; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Listeria monocytogenes; virulence; ncRNAs; PrfA; 5´-UTRs; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : The Gram-positive human pathogen Listeria monocytogenes uses a wide range of virulence factors for its pathogenesis. The majority of its virulence genes are encoded on a 9-kb pathogenicity island and are controlled by the transcriptional activator PrfA. LÄS MER
