Corrigendum: importance of adhesins in virulence of paracoccidioides spp
(Frontiers In Microbiology, 2015)
Chlamydospore formation of paracoccidioides brasiliensis strain Pb-18
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is the causative agent of paracoccidioidomycosis and is known as a temperature-dependent dimorphic fungus. Even though several routes of transformation from a mycelial to yeast forms have been ...
Evaluation of Caenorhabditis elegans as a host model for Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii
Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic fungal infection affecting mainly Latin American countries that is caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii. During the study of fungal pathogenesis, in vivo ...
Paracoccidioides lutzii sp nov.: biological and clinical implications
(Informa Healthcare, 2014-01-01)
Paracoccidioides lutzii, formerly known as 'Pb01-like' strains in the P. brasiliensis complex, is proposed as a new species based on phylogenetic and comparative genomics data, recombination analysis, and morphological ...
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis e Paracoccidioides lutzii, um caso secreto de amor
To commemorate Prof. Carlos da Silva Lacaz’s centennial anniversary, the authors have written a brief account of a few, out of hundreds, biological, ecological, molecular and phylogenetic studies that led to the arrival ...
Comparison between human and armadillo Paracoccidioides brasiliensis isolates by random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis
(Kluwer Academic Publ, 1998-01-01)
Sixty-three Paracoccidioides brasiliensis isolates obtained from three nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novem-cinctus), one Amazonian armadillo's and 19 clinical isolates were compared by random amplified polymorphic DNA ...
The use of a mixture of somatic and culture filtrate antigens in the evaluation of the immune response to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Blackwell Science, 1991-10-11)
Three Paracoccidioides brasiliensis antigens, namely a culture filtrate preparation, a somatic antigen and a mixture of equal parts of the two, were tested by two serological techniques against sera from patients with ...
Molecular detection of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in soil
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2005-12-01)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate different techniques for the detection of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in soil, e.g., culture, animal inoculation and specific DNA amplification by Nested PCR. We designed ...
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis: phylogenetic and ecological aspects
The knowledge on the biological aspects of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis has evolved greatly since the first description of the disease in 1908. From the pioneers, who were able to clearly demonstrate the fungal nature of ...
