Immunity in plants and animals: common ends through different means using similar tools
Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology C-toxicology & Pharmacology. New York: Elsevier B.V., v. 132, n. 1, p. 1-7, 2002.
A comparative approach is potentially useful for understanding the role of mammal innate immunity role in stimulating adaptive immunity as well as the relationship between these two types of immune strategies. Considerable progress has been made in the elucidation of the co-ordinated events involved in plant perception of infection and their mobilisation of defence responses. Although lacking immunoglobulin molecules, circulating cells, and phagocytic processes, plants successfully use pre-formed physical and chemical innate defences, as well as inducible adaptive immune strategies. In the present paper, we review some shared and divergent immune aspects present in both animals and plants. (C) 2002 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Immunization with Brucella VirB proteins elicits a protective Th1 immune response in mice and 1 a similar immune response in dogs Pollak, Cora Noemí; Wanke, María Magdalena; Estein, Silvia Marcela; Delpino, María Victoria; Monachesi, Norma E.; Comercio, Elida A.; Fossati, Carlos Alberto; Baldi, Pablo Cesar (American Society For Microbiology, 2015-03)VirB proteins from Brucella spp. constitute the Type IV secretion system, a key virulence factor mediating the intracellular survival of these bacteria. Here we assessed whether a Th1-type immune response against VirB ...
Interplay between thermal and immune ecology: Effect of environmental temperature on insect immune response and energetic costs after an immune challenge Catalán, Tamara P.; Wozniak, Aniela; Niemeyer Marich, August; Kalergis, Alexis M.; Bozinovic, Francisco (Elsevier, 2012)Although the study of thermoregulation in insects has shown that infected animals tend to prefer higher temperatures than healthy individuals, the immune response and energetic consequences of this preference remain ...
