Induction and secretion of elastinolytic and proteolytic activity in cultures of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Revista de Ciências Farmacêuticas Básica e Aplicada, 2008-10-28) [Artigo]
P. brasiliensis parasitizes various human tissues and proteinases exported by this fungus may allow it to metabolize and invade host tissues. The influence of the culture medium on the production of proteinases by P. ...
Intermolecular interactions of the malate synthase of Paracoccidioides spp
(BMC Microbiology, 2013-05-16) [Artigo]
Background: The fungus Paracoccidioides spp is the agent of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), a pulmonary mycosis acquired by the inhalation of fungal propagules. Paracoccidioides malate synthase (PbMLS) is important in the ...
Analysis of the Paracoccidioides brasiliensis triosephosphate isomerase suggests the potential for adhesin function
(FEMS Yeast Research, 2007-12-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is an important fungal pathogen. The disease it causes, paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), ranges from localized pulmonary infection to systemic processes that endanger the life of the patient. ...
Candida parapsilosis complex water isolates from a haemodialysis unit: biofilm production and in vitro evaluation of the use of clinical antifungals
(Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, 2011-09-01) [Artigo]
Candida parapsilosis, currently divided into three distinct species, proliferates in glucose-rich solutions and has been associated with infections resulting from the use of medical devices made of plastic, an environment ...
Interação de Paracoccidioides brasiliensis com células endoteliais
(Revista de Ciências Farmacêuticas Básica e Aplicada, 2005-12-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis has a variety of clinical manifestations and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, the causative agent, may infect many tissues, most importantly the lungs. Migration of pathogenic yeasts to the endothelial ...
Effect of Usnic Acid on Candida orthopsilosis and C. parapsilosis
(Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
The activity of usnic acid against Candida orthopsilosis and Candida parapsilosis on planktonic and biofilm conditions was investigated by using a broth microdilution and microplate methods. Potent in vitro activities ...
Monitoramento de fungos anemófilos e de leveduras em unidade hospitalar
(Revista de Saúde Pública, 2005-06-01) [Artigo]
OBJETIVO: Monitorar e caracterizar fungos anemófilos e leveduras de fontes bióticas e abióticas de uma unidade hospitalar. MÉTODOS: As coletas foram realizadas mensalmente e em dois períodos, do centro cirúrgico e unidades ...
Influence of copper in the pattern of genes involved in the interaction of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis with the extracellular matrix component
(FASEB Journal, 2011-04-01) [Resumo]
Altered Ex Vivo Expression of Caspase 8, Caspase 9, and Bcl-2 Is Associated with T-Cell Hyporeactivity in Patients with Paracoccidioidomycosis
(Clinical and Vaccine Immunology, 2009-06-01) [Artigo]
To better understand the T-cell hyporesponsiveness of patients with paracoccidioidomycosis, we tested the hypothesis that the T cells were committed to apoptosis. We show here that T cells of patients with paracoccidioidomycosis ...
