Characterization of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis PbDfg5p, a cell-wall protein implicated in filamentous growth
(Yeast, 2008-02-01) [Artigo]
The dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is the causative agent of the most frequent systemic mycosis in Latin America. In humans, infection starts by inhalation of fungal propagules, which reach the pulmonary ...
Interactions of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis with host cells: recent advances
(Mycopathologia, 2008-04-01) [Artigo]
Host-fungal interactions are inherently complex and dynamic. In order to identify new microbial targets and develop more effective anti-fungal therapies, it is important to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms ...
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. ...
