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 ...
Identification and characterisation of elongation factor Tu, a novel protein involved in Paracoccidioides brasiliensis-host interaction
(FEMS Yeast Research, 2016-11-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides spp., which are temperature-dependent dimorphic fungi, are responsible for the most prevalent human systemic mycosis in Latin America, the paracoccidioidomycosis. The aim of this study was to characterise ...
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 ...
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 ...
Can passage in Galleria mellonella activate virulence factors of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis as in the murine model?
(Medical Mycology, 2018-01-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is a fungal disease restricted to Latin countries, and its etiologic agents derive from the Paracoccidioides genus. Attenuation or loss of virulence in Paracoccidioidesspp. following successive ...
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. ...
