  1. 1. Host-pathogen interactions between Francisella tularensis and Drosophila melanogaster

    Författare :Malin Vonkavaara; Svenja Stöven; Ingrid Faye; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; arthropod vector; JNK; lipopolysaccharide; antimicrobial peptides; Clinical Bacteriology; klinisk bakteriologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : Francisella tularensis is a highly virulent Gram-negative bacterium causing the zoonotic disease tularemia. Arthropod-borne transmission plays an important role in transferring the disease to humans. F. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Detection and characterisation of novel vector-borne viruses in Mozambique

    Författare :Harindranath Cholleti; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Arthropod vectors carry a wide variety of viruses that can cause vector-borne infectious diseases that affect the health of both humans and animals. The vector-borne viruses present in nature show high diversity and can infect a broad range of hosts. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular characterization of the Tick-borne encephalitis virus : Environments and replication

    Författare :Wessam Melik; Magnus Johansson; Sonja Best; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tick-borne encephalitis virus; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : The flavivirus genus is of major concern for world morbidity and mortality and includes viruses causing both encephalitic as well as hemorrhagic diseases. The incidence of Tick-borne encephalitis is increasing in many European countries and several reports have emphasized the expansion of the main vector, Ixodes ricinus. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Applications of viral metagenomics in the veterinary field : looking for the unknown

    Författare :Anne-Lie Blomström; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Viral metagenomics provide a powerful technology to investigate the viral flora of healthy and sick animals. Using these methodologies, we gain a better understanding in the etiology of diseases, as well as deepen our knowledge into the viruses circulating in nature and the complex interaction between virus and host.

  5. 5. Ticks and Tick-borne Encephalitis Virus : From Nature to Infection

    Författare :Naveed Asghar; Magnus Johansson; Patrik Dinnétz; Travis Taylor; Södertörns högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Co-occurrence; Environmental factors; Flavivirus; Ixodes ricinus; Natural foci; Non-coding region; Poly A tract; Quasispecies; Questing ticks; Scandinavia; Tick-borne encephalitis virus; Vegetation.; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier;

    Sammanfattning : Vector-borne diseases are an increasing global threat to humans due to climate changes, elevating the risk of infections transmitted by mosquitos, ticks, and other arthropod vectors. Ixodes ricinus, a common tick in Europe, transmits dangerous tick-borne pathogens to humans. LÄS MER
