Tissue repairing macrophage phenotype is induced by direct interaction with platelets
INTRODUCTION: Tissue repair process requires of specialized cells as macrophages. These cells must be stimulated properly to induce tissue repairing macrophage to finally heal tissue. Platelets contain many factors that ...
An intracellular arrangement of Histoplasma capsulatum yeast-aggregates generates nuclear damage to the cultured murine alveolar macrophages
Histoplasma capsulatum is responsible for a human systemic mycosis that primarily affects lung tissue. Macrophages are the major effector cells in humans that respond to the fungus, and the development of respiratory disease ...
Near–infrared photodynamic inactivation of S. pneumoniae and its interaction with RAW 264.7 macrophages
Pneumonia is the main cause of children mortality worldwide, and its major treatment obstacle stems from the microorganisms increasing development of resistance to several antibiotics. Photodynamic therapy has been presenting, ...
Differential roles for pathogenicity islands SPI-13 and SPI-8 in the interaction of Salmonella Enteritidis and Salmonella Typhi with murine and human macrophages
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Background: Salmonella pathogenicity island (SPI)-13 is conserved in many serovars of S. enterica, including S. Enteritidis, S. Typhimurium and S. Gallinarum. However, it is absent in typhoid serovars such as S. Typhi and ...
Interleukin-10 secreted by B-1 cells modulates the phagocytic activity of murine macrophages in vitro
(Blackwell Publishing, 2004-11-01)
As demonstrated previously in our laboratory, B-1 cells migrate from the peritoneal cavity of mice and home to a distant site of inflammation to become macrophage-like cells. However, the influence that these cells might ...
Pro-inflammatory M1 macrophages promote Osteogenesis by mesenchymal stem cells via the COX-2 prostaglandin E2 pathway
Bone fractures are among the most common orthopaedic problems that affect individuals of all ages. Immediately after injury, activated macrophages dynamically contribute to and regulate an acute inflammatory response that ...
Lipase of Candida albicans induces activation of NADPH oxidase and L-arginine pathways on resting and activated macrophages
(Elsevier Inc, 2009-09)
Candida albicans secretes various hydrolytic enzymes which are considered to be an integral part in the pathogenesis. However, the role of lipases is far from being completely understood and the direct effects of these ...
