Anti-Immune Strategies of Pathogenic Fungi
(Frontiers In Cellular And Infection Microbiology, 2016-11-15) [Resenha]
Pathogenic fungi have developed many strategies to evade the host immune system. Multiple escape mechanisms appear to function together to inhibit attack by the various stages of both the adaptive and the innate immune ...
Drosophila ataxin-2 gene encodes two differentially expressed isoforms and its function in larval fat body is crucial for development of peripheral tissues
(FEBS Open Bio, 2016-11-01) [Artigo]
Different isoforms of ataxin-2 are predicted in Drosophila and may underlie different cellular processes. Here, we validated the isoforms B and C of Drosophila ataxin-2 locus (dAtx2), which we found to be expressed in ...
A Low-Cost Label-Free AFB(1) Impedimetric Immunosensor Based on Functionalized CD-Trodes
(Chemosensors, 2016-09-01) [Artigo]
This work describes the investigation of a label-free immunosensor for the detection of aflatoxin B-1 (AFB(1)). CD-trodes (electrodes obtained from recordable compact disks) were used as low-cost and disposable transducers ...
Fungal diseases: could nanostructured drug delivery systems be a novel paradigm for therapy?
(International Journal Of Nanomedicine, 2016-01-01) [Resenha]
Invasive mycoses are a major problem for immunocompromised individuals and patients in intensive care units. Morbidity and mortality rates of these infections are high because of late diagnosis and delayed treatment. ...
