(The University of Bergen, 2006-12-22)
Secreted proteins and surface markers on tubercle bacilli
(The University of Bergen, 2007-12-12)
Tuberculosis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) is the major cause of mortality and morbidity of over two million people each year. Mapping of proteins exported by the pathogen to the extracellular ...
Definition of novel cell envelope associated proteins in Triton X-114 extracts of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv
(BioMed Central, 2010-04-29)
Background Membrane- and membrane-associated proteins are important for the pathogenicity of bacteria. We have analysed the content of these proteins in virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv using Triton X-114 ...
Prevalence of enteropathogenic viruses and molecular characterization of group A rotavirus among children with diarrhea in Dar es Salaam Tanzania
(BioMed Central, 2007-12-27)
Background Different groups of viruses have been shown to be responsible for acute diarrhea among children during their first few years of life. Epidemiological knowledge of viral agents is critical for the development ...
High accuracy mass spectrometry analysis as a tool to verify and improve gene annotation using Mycobacterium tuberculosis as an example
(BioMed Central, 2008-07-02)
<p>Background: While the genomic annotations of diverse lineages of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex are available, divergences between gene prediction methods are still a challenge for unbiased protein dataset ...
Counting Mycobacteria in Infected Human Cells and Mouse Tissue: A Comparison between qPCR and CFU
(Public Library of Science, 2012-04-19)
<p>Due to the slow growth rate and pathogenicity of mycobacteria, enumeration by traditional reference methods like colony counting is notoriously time-consuming, inconvenient and biohazardous. Thus, novel methods that ...
How participatory is parental consent in low literacy rural settings in low income countries? Lessons learned from a community based study of infants in South India
(BioMed Central, 2011-02-15)
Background A requisite for ethical human subjects research is that participation should be informed and voluntary. Participation during the informed consent process by way of asking questions is an indicator of the extent ...
ERG and SIM2 transcription factors in prostate cancer – their role in carcinogenesis and potential clinical utility
(The University of Bergen, 2011-01-27)
Functional analysis of tilS homologues in Bacteria and Archaea
(The University of Bergen, 2005-09-09)
Out of all of the microorganisms sequenced so far about one third of the genes have unknown function. Several studies have shown that information on evolutionary relationships between unknown genes can aid in the prediction ...
