Participation of dectin-1 receptor on NETs release against Paracoccidioides brasiliensis: role on extracellular killing
(Immunobiology, 2015-09-14) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is a dimorphic fungus from the Paracoccidioides genus, which is the causative agent of paracoccidioidomycosis, a chronic, subacute or acute mycosis, with visceral and cutaneous involvement. ...
Experimental murine mycobacteriosis: evaluation of the functional activity of alveolar macrophages in thalidomide- treated mice
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2004-04-01) [Artigo]
Thalidomide is a selective inhibitor of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), a cytokine involved in mycobacterial death mechanisms. We investigated the role of this drug in the functional activity of alveolar macrophages ...
Histoarchitectural Features of the Hepatopancreas of the Amazon River Prawn Macrobrachium amazonicum
(International Journal of Morphology, 2009-03-01) [Artigo]
In decapod crustaceans, the digestive gland is concerned with the digestion, absorption of nutrients, the storage of reserves and excretion. The metabolism and the histological and histochemical changes of the hepatopancreas ...
Karyotypic conservatism in five species of Prochilodus (Characiformes, Prochilodontidae) disclosed by cytogenetic markers
(Genetics and Molecular Biology, 2013-09-05) [Artigo]
The family Prochilodontidae is considered a group with well conserved chromosomes characterized by their number, morphology and banding patterns. Thence, our study aimed at accomplishing a cytogenetic analysis with ...
Challenging postural tasks increase asymmetry in patients with parkinson's disease
(Plos One, 2015) [Artigo]
The unilateral predominance of Parkinson's disease (PD) symptoms suggests that balance control could be asymmetrical during static tasks. Although studies have shown that balance control asymmetries exist in patients with ...
Responses of blood lactate concentration in aerobic and anaerobic training protocols at different swimming exercise intensities in rats
(Journal of Exercise Physiology Online, 2011-06-01) [Artigo]
A swimming periodized experimental training model in rats in which different training protocols (TP) were classified in aerobic (A) and anaerobic (AN) intensity levels. The purpose of the present study was to verify if the ...
Chromosomal location of retrotransposable REX 1 in the genomes in five Prochilodus (Teleostei: Characiformes)
(Mobile Genetic Elements, 2013) [Artigo]
Transposable elements are repetitive DNA sequences comprising a group of segments able to move and carry sequences within the genome. Studies involving comparative genomics have revealed that most vertebrates have different ...
Inflammatory reaction to the human bot-fly, Dermatobia hominis, in infested and reinfested mice
(Medical and Veterinary Entomology, 2003-03-01) [Artigo]
Two groups of mice were infested with first stage larvae of the human bot-fly, Dermatobia hominis (Linnaeus Jr) (Diptera: Oestridae). In the first group, skin biopsies were carried out 1, 3, 5, 7, 10 and 18 days after ...
