Alkyl Protocatechuate-Loaded Nanostructured Lipid Systems as a Treatment Strategy for Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii In Vitro
(Frontiers In Microbiology, 2017-06-12) [Artigo]
Dodecyl protocatechuate (dodecyl) is a derivative of protocatechuic acid (3,4dihydroxybenzoic acid) that possesses anti-oxidant and antifungal properties. Nanostructured lipid systems (NLS) can potentiate the action of ...
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 ...
Surface-expressed enolase contributes to the adhesion of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis to host cells
(FEMS Yeast Research, 2012-08-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic mycosis caused by the dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. Understanding the interactions between P.similar to brasiliensis and the host tissue depends on the study of the ...
Anti-apoptotic effects of decyl gallate on the induction of apoptosis in A549 pneumocytes by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis gp43
(Medical Mycology, 2017-11-01) [Artigo]
Apoptosis is considered an escapemechanism from the host immune system for the fungus Paracoccidioides spp, and it serves as a vehicle for entry into macrophages without stimulating microbicidal activities. Recently, gp43 ...
Influence of the Paracoccidioides brasiliensis 14-3-3 and gp43 proteins on the induction of apoptosis in A549 epithelial cells
(Memorias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, 2015-06-01) [Artigo]
The fungal strain Paracoccidioides brasiliensis remains viable inside of epithelial cells and can induce apoptosis in this population. However, until now, the molecules that participate in this process remained unknown. ...
