    Sammanfattning : Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a controlled process by which aged or damages cells are eliminated in multicellular organisms. Neutrophils, short-lived phagocytes of the innate immune system, are highly equipped effectors that can sense, locate, ingest and kill bacterial pathogens. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Activation of professional phagocytes with emphasis on the formyl peptide receptor family

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för molekylär och klinisk medicin

    Författare :Jennie Karlsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phagocyte; G-protein coupled receptor; chemoattractant; formyl peptide receptor; reactive oxygen species; calcium;

    Sammanfattning : Phagocytic cells such as neutrophil granulocytes and monocytes are an essential part of our innate immune system and play an important role in the battle against pathogens. G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and more specifically chemoattractant receptors are a vital part in guiding phagocytes towards the site of infection. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Yersinia-phagocyte interactions during early infection

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för molekylär och klinisk medicin

    Författare :Linda Westermark; Maria Fällman; Joan Mecsas; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Yersinia; dendritic cell; macrophage; neutrophil; T3SS; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar;

    Sammanfattning : Pathogenic Gram-negative Yersinia species preferentially target and inactivate phagocytic cells of the innate immune defense by translocation of effector Yersinia outer proteins (Yops) into the cells via a type III secretion system. This indicates that inactivation and avoidance of the early innate immune response is an efficient way for Yersinia species to avoid elimination and to cause diseases ranging from mild gastroenteritis (Y.

  5. 5. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen in host defence against Francisella tularensis

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Klinisk mikrobiologi

    Författare :Helena Lindgren; Anders Sjöstedt; Tommy Sundquist; [2005]

    Sammanfattning : Francisella tularensis, the causative agent of tularemia, is a potent human and animal pathogen. Initially upon infection of the host, intramacrophage proliferation of F. tularensis occurs but after activation of the acquired host immunity, the phagocytes become activated to kill the bacterium. In my thesis, I focused on mechanisms utilized by F. LÄS MER
