Involvement of the major glycoprotein (gp43) of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in attachment to macrophages
The yeast form of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, the causative agent of a deep mycosis in humans, is known to be phagocytized by, and to multiply inside, macrophages. In this work we describe the involvement of gp43, a ...
Leishmania amazonensis: Xylitol as inhibitor of macrophage infection and stimulator of macrophage nitric oxide production
(ACADEMIC PRESS INC ELSEVIER SCIENCE, 2008)
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol being explored for clinical uses. The aim was to evaluate the effects of xylitol on Leishmania amazonensis-infected J774A.1 macrophages. Macrophages were infected with L. amazonensis for 3 It, ...
Mouse macrophages release a neutrophil chemotactic mediator following stimulation by staphylococcal enterotoxin type A
(Birkhauser Verlag AgBaselSuíça, 2001)
Interferon-γ, interleukins-6 and -4, and factor XIII-A as indirect markers of the classical and alternative macrophage activation pathways in chronic periodontitis
(American Academy of Periodontology, 2014)
Macrophages account for 5% to 30% of the inflammatory infiltrate in periodontitis and are activated by the classic and alternative pathways. These pathways are identified by indirect markers, among which interferon (IFN)-γ ...
Palmitoleic acid reduces the inflammation in LPS-stimulated macrophages by inhibition of NF kappa B, independently of PPARs
Palmitoleic acid (PM, 16:1n-7) has anti-inflammatory properties that could be linked to higher expression of PPAR, an inhibitor of NFB. Macrophages play a major role in the pathogenesis of chronic inflammation, however, ...
Foamy macrophages in the liver of cattle fed Brachiaria brizantha hay
Liver and lymph nodes injuries characterized by clusters of foamy macrophages, some of them containing birefringent crystals, were observed in cattle fed on Brachiaria brizantha hay. The cattle were from an experimental ...
In vitro and in vivo effects of clove on pro-inflammatory cytokines production by macrophages
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2009-01-01)
Biological properties of clove have been reported, but little is known about its effect on the immune system. This work was aimed to investigate the effect in vivo of a water-soluble part of hydroalcoholic extract of clove ...
PARTICIPATION OF MACROPHAGES IN CHLORAMPHENICOL-POTENTIATED CARRAGEENAN-INDUCED PERITONITIS IN RATS
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica (ABRADIC), 1993-05-01)
1. We investigated the possible potentiating effect of chloramphenicol succinate (30 mg/kg, every 12 h for 4 days, ip) on the response of polymorphonuclear neutrophils to carrageenin (150 mug, ip) or dextran (100 mug, ip) ...
MicroRNA 21 is a homeostatic regulator of macrophage polarization and prevents prostaglandin E-2-mediated M2 generation
(Public Library Science, 2015-02-23)
Macrophages dictate both initiation and resolution of inflammation. During acute inflammation classically activated macrophages (M1) predominate, and during the resolution phase alternative macrophages (M2) are dominant. ...
