1. Cytochrome P450 enzymes in the biosynthesis and metabolism of bile acids and active forms of vitamin D
Sammanfattning : Cytochrome P450 enzymes catalyzing hydroxylations in the biosynthesis and metabolism of bile acids and active forms of vitamin D3 were studied.A microsomal cytochrome P450 enzyme with a molecular mass of 53 kDa, catalyzing the 6α-hydroxylation of taurochenodeoxycholic acid was purfied from pig liver microsomes and characterized with respect to catalytic and electrophoretic properties as well as polyclonal antibodies.

2. Cytochrome P450 enzymes in oxygenation of prostaglandin endoperoxides and arachidonic acid : Cloning, expression and catalytic properties of CYP4F8 and CYP4F21
Sammanfattning : Cytochrome P450 (P450 or CYP) is an enzyme system involved in the oxygenation of a wide range of endogenous compounds as well as foreign chemicals and drugs. This thesis describes investigations of P450-catalyzed oxygenation of prostaglandins, linoleic and arachidoniacids. LÄS MER
3. Characterization of resistance to quinolones, sulfonamide and trimethoprim in Campylobacter jejuni as well as to macrolides in the related bacterium, Helicobacter pylori
Sammanfattning : Gastroenteritis caused by C. jejuni is usually a mild to moderate self-limiting disease. Treatment is recommended in some cases. In recent years, quinolones have been increasingly used to treat acute bacterial enteritis. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Integrons capture and rearrange single genes borne on mobile units called cassettes using site-specific recombination. The integrons increase the variation of antibiotic resistance among bacterial plasmids and may also reorganize clustered genes in bacterial genomes. LÄS MER
5. Co-operative recombination mechanisms promoting gene clustering and lateral transfer of antibacterial drug resistance
Sammanfattning : Transposons of the Mu superfamily are widespread and have been shown to play an important role in the dissemination of antibiotic resistance among microorganisms. One of these elements, Tn5090/Tn402 is the basal vehicle of the type 1 integrons in which mobile resistance gene cassettes are inserted to form clusters and operons. LÄS MER
