The malate synthase of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is a linked surface protein that behaves as an anchorless adhesin
(BMC Microbiology, 2009-12-24) [Artigo]
Background: The pathogenic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is the agent of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM). This is a pulmonary mycosis acquired by inhalation of fungal airborne propagules that can disseminate to several ...
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 ...
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 ...
Induction of apoptosis by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis correlate with pulmonary infection profile
(Mycoses, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
Enolase from Paracoccidioides brasiliensis: isolation and identification as a fibronectin-binding protein
(Journal of Medical Microbiology, 2009-06-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis yeast cells can enter mammalian cells and may manipulate the host cell environment to favour their own growth and survival. Moreover, fibronectin and several other host extracellular matrix ...
Altered ex vivo Expression of Caspase 8, Caspase 9 and Bcl-2 is Associated with the T Cell Hyporreactivity of Paracoccidioidomycosis Patients
(Clinical Immunology, 2009-01-01) [Resumo]
