Infection and apparent invasion of Vero cells by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Journal of Medical and Veterinary Mycology, 1994-01-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis probably uses many different mechanisms to establish itself in the host and cause disease. In this work, we assess an in vitro model system which uses cultured mammalian cells to investigate ...
Polyserositis in a patient with acute paracoccidioidomycosis and hepatosplenic schistosomiasis
(Mycopathologia, 1995-05-01) [Artigo]
A severe case of juvenile paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), manifested as cholestatic jaundice, lymphnode enlargement and an unusual form of polyserositis, associated with portal hypertension secondary to schistosomiasis, as ...
First-void versus midstream urine culture for detection of Ureaplasma urealyticum in the urinary tract
(Revista de Microbiologia, 1995-07-01) [Artigo]
Quantitative Ureaplasma urealyticum culture was performed on clean first-void and midstream urine to evaluate the presence of these mollicutes in the urinary tract. The results, expressed as color changing units (CCU), ...
Characterization of myeloid or lymphoid acute leukemia by a chemiluminescence assay: Comparison with immunocytochemistry using an antimyeloperoxidase antibody
(Acta Haematologica, 1993-01-01) [Artigo]
A simple and sensitive chemiluminescence assay for the demonstration of the activity of intracellular myeloperoxidase (MPO) is described, which is useful for the distinction between myeloid and lymphoid commitment in blasts ...
Isolation of ergosterol peroxide and its reversion to ergosterol in the pathogenic fungus Sporothrix schenckii
(Mycopathologia, 1997-12-01) [Artigo]
Ergosterol peroxide, a presumed product of the H2O2-dependent enzymatic oxidation of ergosterol, has been isolated from yeast from yeast forms of the pathogenic fungus Sporothrix schenckii. The substance, which may have a ...

Host organism defense by a peptide-polysaccharide extracted from the fungus Sporothrix schenckii
(Mycopathologia, 1998-01-01) [Artigo]
A peptide-polysaccharide, a peptide-rhamnomannan, was isolated from the pathogenic yeast form of the fungus Sporothrix schenckii. This substance, which may play a role in fungal virulence, was tested in an animal model of ...
