  1. 1. Staphylococcal enterotoxin H - structure and function of a superantigen

    Författare :Helen Pettersson; Lunds universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; TCR; staphylococcal enterotoxin H; MHC class II; superantigen; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; serology;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to characterise the biological functions of the superantigen staphylococcal enterotoxin H (SEH). Superantigens are highly immunostimulatory proteins, which crosslink T cells and antigen presenting cells (APCs). LÄS MER

  2. 2. The immunomodulatory function of staphylococcal superantigen on oral tolerance

    Författare :Anna Stern; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oral tolerance; superantigen; hygiene hypothesis; staphylococcal enterotoxin;

    Sammanfattning : Exposure to soluble proteins via the gut gives rise to systemic tolerance, a phenomenon called oral tolerance. Failure of oral tolerance results in allergy, a disease that has increased during the last decades in Western industrialized countries. The cause of this rapid increase is unknown. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Food-Related Gram-Positive Bacteria: Enterotoxin A Expression in Staphylococcus aureus and a New Regulation Mechanism in Lactococcus lactis

    Författare :Rong Cao; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lactococcus lactis; multiple inhibition kinetics; dehydrogenase; ATP; ADP; food factors; biopreservatives; staphylococcal food poisoning; SEA; prophage induction; enterotoxin A; Staphylococcus aureus;

    Sammanfattning : Staphylococcal enterotoxin A (SEA) is the most common enterotoxin found in outbreaks of staphylococcal food poisoning (SFP). Based on the amount of SEA produced, S. aureus strains were divided into two main groups, high- and low-SEA-producing strains. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Activation of murine cytotoxic cells with interelukin-2 and the bacterial superantigen staphylococcal entertoxin A

    Författare :Hans Belfrage; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; transplantation; serology; Immunology; cytokine; tolerance; LAK; NK; serologi; CTL; Staphylococcal enterotoxin A; SEA; Interleukin-2; murine; deletion; anergy;

    Sammanfattning : Natural killer (NK) cells and T lymphocytes are the major effector cells that can recognize and kill tumor cells. NK cells have a constitutive cytotoxic activity and kill a wide spectrum of tumor cells while T cells recognize specific tumor antigens and need to be activated through their TCR to differentiate into cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) killers or T helper cells.

  5. 5. Structural studies of metal-binding proteins revealing dynamic behaviour

    Författare :Maria Håkansson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; Molekylär biofysik; Molecular biophysics; zinc; magnesium; superantigen; calbindin D9k; X-ray crystallography; staphylococcal enterotoxin; structure; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Sammanfattning : The Mg2+ and Mn2+ structures of calbindin D9k have been determined and they reveal a conformational change compared to the structures of apo and (Ca2+)2-calbindin D9k. These findings are unique, since normally calcium and not magnesium is known to induce conformational changes of EF-hand proteins. LÄS MER
