    Background Pertussis is still frequently reported in Canada. In Alberta, pertussis incidence ranged from 1.8 to 20.5 cases per 100,000 persons for 2004–2015. Most cases occurred in those aged <15 years. In Alberta, acellular ...
  • Antigenic variation in the Lyme spirochete: detailed functional assessment of recombinational switching at vlsE in the JD1 strain of Borrelia burgdorferi 

    Verhey, Theodore B; Castellanos, Mildred; Chaconas, George (Wiley, Cumming School of Medicine, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Immunology & Infectious Diseases, University of Calgary,, Post-print, 2019-01)
    Borrelia burgdorferi is a causative agent of Lyme disease and establishes long-term infection in mammalian hosts. Persistence is promoted by the VlsE antigenic variation system, which generates combinatorial diversity of ...

  • Application of immobilized ATP to the study of NLRP inflammasomes 

    Liao, Kuo Chieh; Sandall, Christina F.; Carlson, David A.; Ulke-Lemée, Annegret; Platnich, Jaye; Hughes, Philip Floyd; Muruve, Daniel A.; Haystead, Timothy Arthur James; MacDonald, Justin Anthony (Cumming School of Medicine, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, University of Calgary, Duke University, 2019-01-11)
    The NLRP proteins are a subfamily of the NOD-like receptor (NLR) innate immune sensors that possess an ATP-binding NACHT domain. As the most well-studied member, NLRP3 can initiate the assembly process of a multiprotein ...
  • Effects of phosphorylation on the NLRP3 inflammasome 

    Sandall, Christina F.; MacDonald, Justin Anthony (Cumming School of Medicine, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, University of Calgary, 2019-03-05)
    The pyrin domain containing Nod-like receptors (NLRPs) are a family of pattern recognition receptors known to regulate an array of immune signaling pathways. Emergent studies demonstrate the potential for regulatory control ...
