  1. 1. Porins of Borrelia burgdorferi

    Författare :Marija Pinne; Sven Bergström; Magnus Höök; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lyme disease; P13; paralog; P66; channel-forming activity; porin; Medical microbiology; Medicinsk mikrobiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Borrelia burgdorferi is a pathogenic spirochete which cycles between its arthropod vector and vertebrate host. If transmitted to humans, B. burgdorferi causes Lyme disease, an infection which can impair different organs, such as the skin, joints, nervous system and heart. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mechanisms of Antibiotic Resistance Evolution

    Författare :Michael Knopp; Dan Andersson; Anca Segall; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antibiotic resistance evolution; Escherichia coli; Salmonella; porins; fitness; epistasis; strain-specificity; sub-MIC; de novo gene evolution;

    Sammanfattning : The continuing emergence and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria are a threat to various applications in modern medicine and impose a strong economic burden on health systems. The development of new antibiotics is slow and cannot counterbalance the dissemination of resistant bacteria. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Borrelia channel-forming proteins : structure and function

    Sammanfattning : Borrelia is a Gram-negative, corkscrew-shaped bacterium transmitted by infected ticks or lice. Borreliae are subdivided into pathogens of two diseases: Lyme disease, caused mainly by B. burgdorferi, B. afzelii and B. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Structure and Function of the Borrelia burgdorferi Porins, P13 and P66

    Författare :Mari Bonde; Sven Bergström; Melissa Caimano; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Borrelia; P13; P66; porin; protein complex; dissemination; osmotic stress;

    Sammanfattning : Borrelia burgdorferi is an elongated and helically shaped bacterium that is the causal agent of the tick-borne illness Lyme disease. The disease manifests with initial flu-like symptoms and, in many cases, the appearance of a skin rash called erythema migrans at the site of the tick bite. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Structure and Function of Aqua(glycero)porins - A Path to Drug Design

    Författare :Gerhard Fischer; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :structural biology; drug screening; Malaria; membrane proteins; yeast;

    Sammanfattning : Membrane proteins are a major class of the drug targets. Rational design of drugs requires knowledge about the structure and function of these proteins. Working with membrane proteins, however, is experimentally challenging as the required technology is still emerging. LÄS MER
