  1. 1. The MHC genes: variation and impact on life-history traits in house sparrwos

    Författare :Maria Karlsson; MEMEG; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MHC-I; house sparrow; 454-amplicon sequencing; cDNA; functional clustering; trans-species evolution; nestling survival; mate-choice;

    Sammanfattning : In birds the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) organization differs both among and within orders. Galliformes often have simple arrangements with few transcribed MHC genes whilst many songbirds (Passeriformes) have a complex arrangement with many MHC genes and also presence of pseudo-genes.

  2. 2. Avian MHC : Characterization and expression patterns of classical and non-classical MHC-I genes

    Författare :Anna Drews; MEMEG; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MCH class I; Classical genes; Non-classical genes; Expression; Passerine birds;

    Sammanfattning : The function of the vertebrate immune system is to enable recognition and elimination of microorganisms that can cause harm (pathogens). A key component in adaptive immunity is the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) that codes for molecules with antigen presentation function. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Natural killer cell education under conditions of perturbed sensing of MHC : studies in MHC-I mosaic and chimaeric mice

    Författare :Sadia Salam; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Natural killer (NK) cells are innate lymphocytes that play a role in infections, tumours and transplantation. Their activating and inhibitory receptors sense cell surface ligands on potential target cells. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Processing and presentation of exogenous antigen by dendritic cells

    Författare :Liying Chen; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; DC; vesicular MHC-I processing; Adenosine; CD 1 d; TACA;

    Sammanfattning : Dendritic cells (DC) play a key role in the immune system. In this thesis, we have investigated and characterized pathways for the processing and presentation of exogenous OVA on MHC-I ("cross-presentation") and how these were influenced by the purine nucleoside Adenosine (Ado), an immune regulator that accumulates to high concentrations at sites of inflammation and tumor growth.

  5. 5. MHC class I - Peptide binding and complex stability

    Författare :Elna Follin; Antigen presentation; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The major histocompatibility class I (MHC-I) genes are highly polymorphic and the proteins that they encode play a crucial role in both the innate and the adaptive immune response. A MHC-I molecule consists of three parts, one polymorphic heavy chain, one invariant light chain, β2-microglobulin and a peptide of usually between 8-11 amino acids in length. LÄS MER
