  1. 1. Lifestyle and Genome Evolution in Vector-Borne Bacteria : A Comparison of Three Bartonella Species

    Författare :Anna Carolin Frank; Siv Andersson; Stewart Cole; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Bartonella; evolution; host-restriction; vector-borne; horizontal gene transfer; genome reduction; alpha-proteobacteria; Type-IV secretion; Biologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Sammanfattning : Bacterial genomes provide records of the molecular processes associated with emergence and evolution of different bacterial lifestyles. This thesis is based on whole-genome comparisons within the genus Bartonella, an excellent model system for studies of host- and vector-specificity and infection outcome in animal-associated bacteria.

  2. 2. Towards Mosquitocides for Prevention of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases : discovery and Development of Acetylcholinesterase 1 Inhibitors

    Författare :Sofie Knutsson; Anna Linusson; Fredrik Almqvist; Andreas Larsson; Ulf Nilsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mosquito; vector-borne diseases; vector control; insecticide; acetylcholinesterase; medicinal chemistry; high-throughput screening; organic synthesis; homology modeling; structure activity relationship; structure selectivity relationship; datorlingvistik; computational linguistics; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Diseases such as malaria and dengue impose great economic burdens and are a serious threat to public health, with young children being among the worst affected. These diseases are transmitted by mosquitoes, also called disease vectors, which are able to transmit both parasitic and viral infections. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Detection and characterisation of novel vector-borne viruses in Mozambique

    Författare :Harindranath Cholleti; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Arthropod vectors carry a wide variety of viruses that can cause vector-borne infectious diseases that affect the health of both humans and animals. The vector-borne viruses present in nature show high diversity and can infect a broad range of hosts. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Decoding the language of transmission among vector-pathogen-host

    Författare :Melika Hajkazemian; S. Noushin Emami; Richard Hopkins; Stockholms universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Vector-borne diseases account for over 17 percent of all infectious diseases and lead to more than 700,000 mortalities annually. Importantly, there is a complex interaction between infectious organisms and their host. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Imported infections’ importance : global change driving Dengue dynamics

    Författare :Mikkel B. Quam; Joacim Rocklöv; Annelies Wilder-Smith; Eduardo Massad; Dave D. Chadee; Umeå universitet; []
