  1. 1. Construction of a fusion protein for anchoring the inflammatory receptor NLRP3 to the cell membrane

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Rebecca Ling; [2019]
    Keywords : NLRP3 inflammasome; Overlap PCR; Fusion Protein; LPI™ technology;

    Abstract : The innate immune system are a cooperation of many components – receptors being one of them. Both membrane-bound and cytosolic receptors play a large role in the defence system against pathogens and danger. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects and safety of selected antagonistic bacteria against Escherichia coli in leafy green vegetables

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Noora Ulla Annikki Nurminen; [2017]
    Keywords : ready-to-eat salad; Antagonist; Escherichia coli; food technology; livsmedelsteknologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : We live in a busy world, where the demand of ready-to-eat (RTE) salad products has increased rapidly in a relatively short time. Despite of being an easy and fast way to add more vegetables to the daily diet, RTE salads have a serious underlying risk and the amount of vegetable-derived foodborne disease outbreaks has been increasing.

  3. 3. Early dietary effects of arachidonic acid on gene expression linked to  immune response and metabolism in rural and urban Great Tit (Parus Major) nestlings

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Ye Xiong; [2017]
    Keywords : gene expression; dietary manipulation; arachidonic acid;

    Abstract : This study was conducted to test the silver spoon hypothesis that earlylife nutritional conditions impact development, performance and fitness of the birdsgreat tit (Parus major) nestlings. We investigated whether fatty acid affects immunityand metabolism during the altricial period by examining the expressions of geneTLR4 (immunity related) and COX 2 (metabolism related) against a dietarymanipulation on great tit nestlings in urban vs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Induction of interferon beta in human kidney epithelial cells by virulent and non-virulent strains of Escherichia coli.

    University essay from Malmö högskola/Hälsa och samhälle

    Author : Martin Hambitzer; [2016]
    Keywords : acute pyelonephritis; asymptomatic bacteriuria; interferon beta; confocal microscopy; A498 cells; CFT073; E. coli 83972;

    Abstract : Urinvägsinfektioner (UVI) är ett vanligt hälsoproblem som drabbar miljontals människor. Den allvarligaste formen, akut pyelonefrit (APN) kan ge svåra komplikationer. Urinvägspatogena Escherichia coli (UPEC) som orsakar APN uttrycker P fimbrier som specifikt binder till glykosphingolipider på ytan av uroepitelceller. READ MORE

  5. 5. Expression and Purification of Recombinant Human S100A8 and S100A9 for Characterization of Their Roles as Danger Signals

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi

    Author : Rebecca Trang; [2015]
    Keywords : S100A9; DAMP; RAGE; TLR4; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; S100A8; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The direct involvement of S100 calcium-binding proteins A8 (S100A8) and A9 (S100A9) in numerous human diseases have been discovered more than 20 years ago, and they have ever since emerged as a very potent biomarker. Increased levels of S100A8 and S100A9 have been found in inflammation and various cancers. READ MORE
