Induction of apoptosis in A549 pulmonary cells by two Paracoccidioides brasiliensis samples
(Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, 2009-08-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis presents a variety of clinical manifestations and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis can reach many tissues, most importantly the lungs. The ability of the pathogen to interact with host surface structures ...
Isolation and partial characterization of a 30 kDa adhesin from Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Microbes and Infection, 2005-05-01) [Artigo]
The virulence of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis can be attenuated or lost after long periods of repeated subculturing and reestablished after animal inoculation. Only one adhesin (gp43) has been described until now, among ...
Transcriptome profiling of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis yeast-phase cells recovered from infected mice brings new insights into fungal response upon host interaction
(Microbiology-sgm, 2007-12-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is a fungal human pathogen with a wide distribution in Latin America. It causes paracoccidioidomycosis, the most widespread systemic mycosis in Latin America. Although gene expression in P. ...
Occurrence of fungi in water used at a haemodialysis centre
(Cartas In Applied Microbiology, 2008-05-01) [Artigo]
Aims: The aim of this study was to identify and determine the diversity, occurrence and distribution of fungi in water used at a haemodialysis centre.Methods and Results: Samples in the hydraulic circuit for the distribution ...
Altered expression of the costimulatory molecules CD80, CD86, CD152, PD-1 and ICOS on T-cells from paracoccidioidomycosis patients: Lack of correlation with T-cell hyporesponsiveness
(Clinical Immunology, 2008-11-01) [Artigo]
T-cell proliferative hypo responsiveness, a hallmark of paracoccidioidomycosis immune responses, underlies host's failure in controlling fungus spread, being reversible with antifungal treatment. The mechanisms leading to ...
Adherence and intracellular parasitism of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in Vero cells
(Microbes and Infection, 2000-07-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is a dimorphic fungus known to produce invasive systemic disease in humans. The 43-kDa glycoprotein of P, brasiliensis is the major diagnostic antigen of paracoccidioidomycosis and may act as ...
Cryptococcosis outbreak in psittacine birds in Brazil
(Medical Mycology, 2004-08-01) [Artigo]
An outbreak of cryptococcosis occurred in a breeding aviary in São Paulo, Brazil. Seven psittacine birds (of species Charmosyna papou, Lorius lory, Trichoglossus goldiei, Psittacula krameri and Psittacus erithacus) died ...
Induction of apoptosis by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis correlate with pulmonary infection profile
(Mycoses, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
