    During the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic in 2020, many countries shut down schools and businesses in an effort to slow transmission of the virus. As some businesses reopened, increased public health protocols, mask wearing, hand ...
  • The Lyme disease spirochete can hijack the host immune system for extravasation from the microvasculature 

    Tan, Xi; Petri, Björn; DeVinney, Rebekah; Jenne, Craig N; Chaconas, George (Wiley, Cumming School of Medicine, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Immunology & Infectious Diseases, University of Calgary,, acceptedVersion, 2021-04-23)
    Lyme disease is the most common tick-transmitted disease in the northern hemisphere and is caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi and related Borrelia species. The constellation of symptoms attributable to this ...
  • Structure, function, and evolution of linear replicons in Borrelia 

    Chaconas, George; Kobryn, Kerri (Annual Reviews, Cumming School of Medicine, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, University of Calgary, University of Saskatchewan,, acceptedVersion, 2010-06-10)
    Spirochetes of the genus Borrelia include important human pathogens that cause Lyme borreliosis and relapsing fever. The genomes of Borrelia species can be composed of up to 24 DNA molecules, most of which are linear. The ...
  • CSM murray award lecture - functional studies of the Lyme disease spirochete - from molecules to mice 

    Chaconas, George (Canadian Science Publishing, Cumming School of Medicine, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, University of Calgary,, acceptedVersion, 2012-02-17)
    Lyme borreliosis, also known as Lyme disease, is now the most common vector transmitted disease in the northern hemisphere. It is caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi and related species. In addition to their ...
  • Hairpin Telomere Resolvases 

    Kobryn, Kerri; Chaconas, George (American Society for Microbiology, Cumming School of Medicine, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, University of Calgary, University of Saskatchewan,, acceptedVersion, 2014-11-24)
    Covalently closed hairpin ends, also known as hairpin telomeres, provide an unusual solution to the end replication problem. The hairpin telomeres are generated from replication intermediates by a process known as telomere ...
  • GABA(B) modulation of dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens core 

    Puil, Ernest; Pitman, Kimberley A.; Borgland, Stephanie L. (Wiley, Cumming School of Medicine, Other, University of Calgary,, submittedVersion, 2014-11)
    Modulation of the concentration of dopamine (DA) released from dopaminergic terminals in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) influences behaviours such as the motivation to obtain drugs of abuse. γ-Aminobutyric acid type B (GABAB ...
  • Krabbe disease: Two cases of multidisciplinary symptom management 

    Yang, David; Gnanakumar, Vithya; Spencer, Adam; Livingstone, Margaret (Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, submittedVersion, 2021-04-08)
    We present the comprehensive, multidisciplinary symptom management of two patients with infantile Krabbe disease. Krabbe disease is a rare autosomal recessive neurodegenerative condition, and is ultimately fatal. Initial ...
  • Insulin in the ventral tegmental area reduces cocaine-evoked dopamine in the nucleus accumbens in vivo 

    Naef, Lindsay; Seabrook, Lauren; Hsiao, Jeff; Li, Calvin; Borgland, Stephanie L (2019-01)
    Mesolimbic dopamine circuits, implicated in incentive motivation, are sensitive to changes in metabolic state such as weight loss and diet-induced obesity. These neurons are important targets for metabolic hormones such ...
