FORSKSKOLE-Forskerskoler

Norwegian Research School in Infection Biology and Antimicrobials (IBA)

Infeksjonssykdomme rangerer blant de viktigste årsakene til dødelighet og sykelighet over hele verden. Gjennom tverrfaglig forskningsinnsats, der man kombinerer ulike strategier for å fokusere på både mikroben og verten, kan en oppnå bedre kunnskap om infeksjonssykdommer for å forebygge og kontro...

Glycan evolution in a bacterial model system of protein glycosylation

Overflatestrukturar hos sjukdomsframkallande bakterier er ofte viktige mål for immunsystemet og er såleis viktige for samhandlinga mellom vert og mikrobe. Ofte er overflatestrukturane heilt eller delvis laga av sukker (eller meir presist av karbohydrat) og mange av dagens vaksiner er retta mot de...

Structure, function and phylogenetics of cytochrome oxidase in Neisseria species

Pathogens and parasites, like all other forms of life, have evolutionary histories. Elucidating these histories using phylogenetic methods is of immense importance as it provides knowledge concerning the mechanisms of infectious disease pathogenesis and h ow diseases might be controlled or ideall...

O-LINKED PROTEIN GLYCOSYLATION IN BACTERIA

Protein glycosylation is a pivotal element of biological systems not only because it is one of the major post-translational modifications but also because it has significant effects on protein properties and functions. We have recently discovered, and par tially characterized, the first general O...

Unique post-translational modifications in a prokaryotic model system

Post-translational modifications (PTMs) are covalent processing events that modify the properties of protein by proteolytic cleavage or by addition of a modifying group to one or more amino acids. They modulate biological processes by influencing protein activity, localization, turnover, and inte...
