Influence of chronic Helicobacter pylori infection on systemic and neuroinflammation and its impact on cognition (2017-12-07)Helicobacter pylori is the major bacterial colonizer of the human stomach. It is estimated that approximately 50% of humans worldwide are chronically infected with this bacterium. Epidemiologically, H. pylori is recognized ...
(2017-09-07)Biotin is a cofactor required by all three domains of life. It is an enzyme cofactor that acts as a “swinging arm” to transfer carboxyl groups in important metabolic pathways involving carboxylation, decarboxylation and ...
(2017-08-24)Biotin is a cofactor required for function of essential biotin dependent enzymes that are involved in metabolic processes including fatty acid biosynthesis, gluconeogenesis, and amino acid catabolism. In order for biotin ...
Finding NEMO by the molluscum contagiosum virus MC159 protein and its effect on viral pathogenesis in vivo (2017-12-08)Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) is a dermatotropic poxvirus that solely infects humans. MCV infections causes benign neoplastic lesions that can persists for few months in children and adults. It is an opportunistic ...
Characterization of the vaccinia virus ankyrin repeat protein K1 on NF-κB inhibition and its contributions to viral pathogenesis (2017-04-20)All viruses strategically alter the anti-viral immune response to their benefit. The goal of this thesis was to examine how the vaccinia virus (VACV) K1 protein, which is encoded by the K1L gene, modulates the immune ...
