Sammanfattning : Phagocytosis of Streptococcus pyogenes is complement dependent. However, the cell wall-associated M protein, which exists in >100 different serotypes (M types), enables the bacteria to evade phagocytosis. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : The bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes is a common human pathogen known to cause bothuncomplicated and severe infections. Epidemics of invasive disease caused by S. pyogenesserotype T1 were seen in the county of Uppsala, Sweden, in 19881989 and 1994. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Streptococcus pyogenes is a major human pathogen with more than 500 000 casualties annually of which at least 163 000 are due to invasive infections. The remainder is due to post-streptococcal complications with rheu¬matic heart disease constituting the majority. S. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : A distinguishing feature of Streptococcus pyogenes (GAS) is their ability to resist phagocytosis in whole human blood in the absence of type-specific antibodies, a property that is dependent on the expression of the surface associated M proteins. A common characteristic of M proteins is their interaction with a variety of host proteins including the complement regulatory protein factor H (FH) and fibrinogen that plays a key role in coagulation.

Sammanfattning : Group A streptococcus (GAS) is a strictly human pathogen that causes infections ranging from asymptomatic carriage to the highly lethal streptococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS). GAS are classified according to the sequence of the variable 5’ end of the emm-gene that encodes the surface associated M-protein. LÄS MER
