Interleukin-15 augments oxidative metabolism and fungicidal activity of human monocytes against Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, Ministério da Saúde, 2010-11-01)
Interleukin (IL)-15 is a pleiotropic cytokine that regulates the proliferation and survival of many cell types. IL-15 is produced by monocytes and macrophages against infectious agents and plays a pivotal role in innate ...
Fungicidal activity of human monocyte-derived multinucleated giant cells induced in vitro by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis antigen
Multinucleated giant cells (MGC) are characteristic cells in granulomatous disorders such as paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) and also are formed in vitro from peripheral blood mononuclear cells by several stimuli. In this ...
Role of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis cell wall fraction containing beta-glucan in tumor necrosis factor-alpha production by human monocytes: correlation with fungicidal activity
(B I O S Scientific Publishers Ltd, 2002-08-01)
The polysaccharide fraction of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis mycelial cell wall (F1 fraction), the active component of which is composed of beta-glucan, was investigated in regard to the activation of human monocytes for ...
Effect of cytokines on the in vitro fungicidal activity of monocytes from paracoccidioidomycosis patients
(Elsevier B.V., 2003-02-01)
Peripheral blood monocytes obtained from paracoccidioidomycosis patients and healthy individuals were preactivated with recombinant gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) in different concentrations (250, 500 and 1000 U/ml) and ...
Microbial community structure in a silty clay loam soil after fumigation with three broad spectrum fungicides
(Taylor & Francis, 2008-04)
The short-term effect of three broad spectrum fungicides on microbial activity, microbial biomass, soil ergosterol content, and phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) profiles was studied. A silty clay loam soil was treated ...
IN-VITRO INHIBITION OF SPORES GERMINATION OF ALTERNARIA-SOLANI BY 3 FUNGICIDES
(Soc Brasileira Microbiologia, 1994-01-01)
In vitro inhibition of the of spores germination of Alternaria solani by iprodione, chlorothalonil, and anilazine at different dosages was studied. The highest concentration of active ingredient studied for each fungicide ...
Interleukin-10 but not Transforming Growth Factor beta inhibits murine activated macrophages Paracoccidioides brasiliensis killing: Effect on H2O2 and NO production
(Academic Press Inc. Elsevier B.V., 2010-01-01)
Paracoccidioidomycosis is caused by the thermally dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (P brasiliensis). Most often, this mycosis runs as a chronic progressive course affecting preferentially the lungs. In vitro ...
Pre- and post-infection activity of new fungicides against Botrytis cinérea and other fungi causing decay of table grapes
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Facultad de Agronomía e Ingeniería Forestal, 2007)
Modulatory effect of fatty acids on fungicidal activity, respiratory burst and TNF-alpha and IL-6 production in J774 murine macrophages
(CAMBRIDGE UNIV PRESS, 2011)
The reported effects of different families of fatty acids (FA; SFA, MUFA, n-3 and n-6 PUFA) on human health and the importance of macrophage respiratory burst and cytokine release to immune defence led us to examine the ...
