Interaction of pathogenic fungi with host cells: Molecular and cellular approaches
(FEMS Immunology and Medical Microbiology, 2005-09-01) [Artigo]
This review provides an overview of several molecular and cellular approaches that are likely to supply insights into the host-fungus interaction. Fungi present intra- and/or extracellular host-parasite interfaces, the ...
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 ...
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 ...
The role of interleukin-10 in the differential expression of interleukin-12p70 and its beta 2 receptor on patients with active or treated paracoccidioidomycosis and healthy infected subjects
(Clinical Immunology, 2005-01-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis patients present an antigen-specific Th1 immunosuppression. To better understand this phenomenon, we evaluated the interleukin (IL)-12 pathway by measuring IL-12p70 production and CD3(+) T cell ...
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 ...
