Taurine bromamine: A potent oxidant of tryptophan residues in albumin
(Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2011-03-15) [Artigo]
Taurine is the most abundant free amino acid in leukocytes and can react with HOBr to produce taurine bromamine (Tau-NHBr). The aim of this study was to assess the ability of Tau-NHBr to oxidize tryptophan, either free or ...
Immune Response Against Sporothrix schenckii in TLR-4-Deficient Mice
(Mycopathologia, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
For many fungal diseases, macrophages are the major cell population implicated in host protection, primarily by their ability to eliminate the invading fungal pathogen through phagocytosis. In sporotrichosis, this remains ...
