  1. 1. Structural studies of the surface adhesin SspB from Streptococcus gordonii

    Författare :Nina Forsgren; Karina Persson; Inger Andersson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus gordonii; X-ray crystallography; surface adhesin; dental plaque; structural biology; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : Surface proteins on microorganisms that build up the oral biofilm are key players in the formation of the biofilm. Antigen I/II proteins are surface adhesins found on virtually all oral streptococci and share a conserved multi-domain architecture. These adhesins bind surface components on other bacteria and on host cells. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Inflammatory cell death of human macrophages induced by Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans leukotoxin

    Författare :Peyman Kelk; Anders Johansson; Charels A Dinarello; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans; leukotoxin; IL-1β; caspase-1; inflammatory cell death; pyroptosis; ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : Aggregatibacter (Actinobacillus) actinomycetemcomitans is a bacterium mainly associated with aggressive forms of periodontitis. Among its virulence factors, a leukotoxin is suggested to play an important role in the pathogenicity. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On the relationship between spinal pain and temporomandibular disorders

    Författare :Birgitta Wiesinger; Anders Wänman; Per Sjölander; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; back pain; comorbidity; cross-sectional; dose-response; headaches; matched case-control; musculoskeletal disorders; prospective cohort; spinal pain; temporomandibular disorders TMD ; Other odontology; Övrig odontologi; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : Both spinal pain and temporomandibular disorders (TMD) commonly occur in the general population. Previous studies demonstrate neurophysiologic and biomechanical couplings between the trigeminal and cervical regions. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Dentoalveolar and craniofacial changes from early adolescence to late adulthood

    Författare :Nameer Al-Taai; Anna Westerlund; Maria Ransjö; Eva Levring Jäghagen; Timo Peltumäki; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Objectives: Study I: To evaluate the reliability and validity of different superimposition methods and to increase the precision with which craniofacial growth and treatment can be quantified. Study II: To explore the craniofacial changes that occur from early adolescence to late adulthood. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Oligodontia and ectodermal dysplasia : on signs, symptoms, genetics and outcomes of dental treatment

    Författare :Birgitta Bergendal; Christina Stecksén-Blicks; Margareta Molin Thorén; Göran Dahllöf; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The general aim of this thesis was to broaden our knowledge of the signs and symptoms, genetics, and outcomes of dental implant treatment in individuals with oligodontia or ectodermal dysplasia. Article I is a population-based study in three Swedish counties of 162 individuals with oligodontia, which was a prevalence of 0.09%. LÄS MER
