  1. 1. Inflammatory mediator response to Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria in vitro and in middle ear infections

    Författare :Susann Skovbjerg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Gram-positive; Gram-negative; bacteria; cytokines; monocytes macrophages; phagocytosis; Streptococcus pneumoniae; autolysin; acute otitis media; secretory otitis media; children; probiotics;

    Sammanfattning : Based on the structure of the cell wall, bacteria are divided into Gram-positive and Gram-negative. While the cell wall of Gram-positive bacteria is thick, the cell wall of Gram-negatives is very thin and surrounded by an outer membrane with LPS. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses by Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria

    Författare :Anna Martner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Gram-positive; Gram-negative bacteria; Streptococcus pneumoniae; IL-12; autolysin; pneumolysin; CD4 T cells; monocytes macrophages; dendritic cells;

    Sammanfattning : Bacteria are classified as Gram-positive or Gram-negative, depending on their cell wall structure. The role of the bacterial cell wall in immune regulation is the focus of the current work. Most Gram-positive bacteria stimulate monocytes to produce large amounts of IL-12. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Genetic approaches towards understanding penumococcal virulence and biology

    Författare :Jenny Fernebro; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Streptococcus pneumoniae, the pneumococcus, is a major human pathogen giving rise to death and illness worldwide every year. It causes a wide variety of diseases, from normally harmless infections such as otitis media to potentially life-threatening systemic diseases such as pneumonia, meningitis and sepsis. LÄS MER
