  1. 1. Bacterial Resistance to Antimicrobial Peptides : Rates, Mechanisms and Fitness Effects

    Författare :Maria Pränting; Dan Andersson; Ian Chopra; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :antimicrobial peptides; antibiotic resistance; fitness cost; bacterial evolution; small colony variants; cyclotides; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Sammanfattning : The rapid emergence of bacterial resistance to antibiotics has necessitated the development of alternative treatment strategies. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are important immune system components that kill microbes rapidly and have broad activity-spectra, making them promising leads for new pharmaceuticals. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Silicon-based electric DNA chip arrays were utilized to fast identify pathogenic microorganisms with respect to the capacity to produce toxins involved in foodborne poisoning and infections. Bacteria of the B. cereus and the enterohemorrhagic E. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Electric DNA arrays for determination of pathogenic Bacillus cereus

    Författare :Yanling Liu; Sven-Olof Enfors; Helena Anderson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bacillus cereus; haemolysin; non-haemolytic enterotoxin; cytotoxin K-2; cereulide; toxin-coding genes; bacterial colony; electric DNA chip; ultrasonication; DNA fragmentation; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Silicon-based electric chip arrays were developed for characterization of Bacillus cereus with respect to the capacity to produce toxins involved in food poisoning and foodborne infections. Bacteria of the B. cereus group contain different sets of four toxins encoded by eight genes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Wood-Decomposing Fungi: Soil colonization, effects on indigenous bacterial community in soil and hydroxyl radical production

    Författare :Karin Tornberg; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; hydroxyl radicals; fungal growth; interactions; soil colonization; bacterial community; soil; brown-rot fungi; wood-decomposing fungi; white-rot fungi; Ekologi; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Sammanfattning : The extracellular enzyme activities of wood-decomposing basidiomycetes are essential for wood degradation, but are also able to degrade various recalcitrant organic pollutants. The possible application of wood-decomposing fungi in bioremediation has increased the interest in understanding their growth and activity in soil. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Host responses and bacterial virulence factors in Neisseria infections

    Författare :Linda Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Neisseria; CD46; LPS; antimicrobial peptide.;

    Sammanfattning : Neisseria meningitidis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae are human specific pathogens. N. meningitidis is a major cause of meningitis and sepsis, whilst N. gonorrhoeae causes many millions of cases of gonorrhea in the world every year. LÄS MER
