Microplate alamarblue assay for paracoccidioides susceptibility testing
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2013-04-01) [Artigo]
CLSI method M27-A3 is not available for use with dimorphic fungi, such as those of the Paracoccidioides genus. In this study, we developed a microdilution method and added the alamarBlue reagent to test the responses of ...
Intermolecular interactions of the malate synthase of Paracoccidioides spp
(BMC Microbiology, 2013-05-16) [Artigo]
Background: The fungus Paracoccidioides spp is the agent of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), a pulmonary mycosis acquired by the inhalation of fungal propagules. Paracoccidioides malate synthase (PbMLS) is important in the ...
Paracoccidoides brasiliensis 30 kDa Adhesin: Identification as a 14-3-3 Protein, Cloning and Subcellular Localization in Infection Models
(PLOS ONE, 2013-04-30) [Artigo]
Paracoccidoides brasiliensis adhesion to lung epithelial cells is considered an essential event for the establishment of infection and different proteins participate in this process. One of these proteins is a 30 kDa ...
Antifungal Efficacy during Candida krusei Infection in Non-Conventional Models Correlates with the Yeast In Vitro Susceptibility Profile
(PLOS ONE, 2013-03-28) [Artigo]
The incidence of opportunistic fungal infections has increased in recent decades due to the growing proportion of immunocompromised patients in our society. Candida krusei has been described as a causative agent of ...
Effectiveness of disinfectants used in hemodialysis against both Candida orthopsilosis and C. parapsilosis sensu stricto biofilms
(Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2013-05-01) [Artigo]
Biofilms have been observed in the fluid pathways of hemodialysis machines. The impacts of four biocides used for the disinfection of hemodialysis systems were tested against Candida parapsilosis sensu stricto and Candida ...
Early endosome antigen 1 (EEA1) decreases in macrophages infected with Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Medical Mycology, 2013-10-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is a chronic granulomatous disease caused by the dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, endemic in Latin America. P. brasiliensis has been observed in epithelial cells in vivo and in ...
