Dimorphism, thermal tolerance, virulence and Heat shock protein 70 transcription in different isolates of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Mycopathologia, 2008-06-01) [Artigo]
The mycelia-to-yeast (M-Y) transition, thermal tolerance and virulence profiles were evaluated for nine isolates of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, including samples from two of the three recently discovered cryptic species, ...
Sporothrix schenckii sensu stricto Isolated from Soil in an Armadillo's Burrow
(Mycopathologia, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
Sporotrichosis is a polymorphic disease of man and animals caused by traumatic implantation of propagules into the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Pathogenic species includes S. brasiliensis, S. schenckii, S. globosa and S. ...
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis: phylogenetic and ecological aspects
(Mycopathologia, 2008-04-01) [Artigo]
The knowledge on the biological aspects of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis has evolved greatly since the first description of the disease in 1908. From the pioneers, who were able to clearly demonstrate the fungal nature of ...
Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry for Differentiation of the Dimorphic Fungal Species Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii
(Journal Of Clinical Microbiology, 2015-04-01) [Artigo]
Isolates of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii, previously characterized by molecular techniques, were identified for the first time by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass ...
PRP8 intein in Ajellomycetaceae family pathogens: Sequence analysis, splicing evaluation and homing endonuclease activity
(Fungal Genetics and Biology, 2011-02-01) [Artigo]
Inteins are intervening sequences that are transcribed and translated with flanking host protein sequences and then self-excised by protein splicing. Bi-functional inteins also contain a homing endonuclease responsible for ...
Phylogenetic analysis reveals a high level of speciation in the Paracoccidioides genus
(Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 2009-08-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is a systemic disease endemic to most of Latin America, with greatest impact in rural areas. The taxonomic status of one of the best studied Paracoccidioides isolates (Pb01) as A brasiliensis ...
Molecular detection of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in road-killed wild animals
(Medical Mycology, 2008-01-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis infections have been little studied in wild and/or domestic animals, which may represent an important indicator of the presence of the pathogen in nature. Road-killed wild animals have been ...
Molecular approaches for eco-epidemiological studies of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, 2009-07-01) [Artigo]
Medical mycology has greatly benefited from the introduction of molecular techniques. New knowledge on molecular genetics has provided both theoretical and practical frameworks, permitting important advances in our ...
Analysis of inteins in the Candida parapsilosis complex for simple and accurate species identification
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
Inteins are coding sequences that are transcribed and translated with flanking sequences and then are excised by an autocatalytic process. There are two types of inteins in fungi, mini-inteins and full-length inteins, both ...
First description of a cluster of acute/subacute paracoccidioidomycosis cases and its association with a climatic anomaly
(Mycoses, 2009-01-01) [Resumo]
