      The surface anionogenic groups and sialoglycoconjugate structures of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis yeast forms were analysed by cell microelectrophoresis, binding assays with lectins and viral particles, ultrastructural ...

    • Antibodies Against Glycolipids Enhance Antifungal Activity of Macrophages and Reduce Fungal Burden After Infection with Paracoccidioides brasiliensis 

      Bueno, Renata A.; Thomaz, Luciana; Munoz, Julian E.; da Silva, Cassia J.; Nosanchuk, Joshua D.; Pinto, Marcia R.; Travassos, Luiz R. [UNIFESP]; Taborda, Carlos P. (Frontiers Media Sa, 2016)
      Paracoccidioidomycosis is a fungal disease endemic in Latin America. Polyclonal antibodies to acidic glycosphingolipids (GSLs) from Paracoccidioides brasiliensis opsonized yeast forms in vitro increasing phagocytosis and ...

    • Antifungal and antitumor models of bioactive protective peptides 

      Rodrigues, Elaine Guadelupe [UNIFESP]; Dobroff, Andrey Sergee [UNIFESP]; Taborda, Carlos Pelleschi [UNIFESP]; Travassos, Luiz Rodolpho [UNIFESP] (Academia Brasileira de Ciências, 2009-09-01)
      Peptides are remarkably reactive molecules produced by a great variety of species and able to display a number of functions in uni-and multicellular organisms as mediators, agonists and regulating substances. Some of them ...

    • Antigenic similarities to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in thermo-dependent dimorphic fungi isolated from soil in Botucatu, SP, Brazil 

      Sano, Ayako; Nishimura, Kazuko; Horie, Yoshikazu; Franco, Macello; Mendes, Rinaldo Poncio; Coelho, Kunie Iabuki Rabello; Scapolio, Silvia Helena Barbin; Fukushima, Kazutaka; Camargo, Zoilo Pires de [UNIFESP]; Miyaji, Makoto; Montenegro, Mário Rubens (Kluwer Academic Publ, 1997-01-01)
      We compared the antigenic characteristics of two thermo-dependent dimorphic fungi isolated from soil in Botucatu, an endemic area of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. the soil isolates grew ...

    • Attempts at a peptide vaccine against paracoccidioidomycosis, adjuvant to chemotherapy 

      Travassos, Luiz Rodolpho [UNIFESP]; Rodrigues, Elaine Guadalupe [UNIFESP]; Iwai, Leo Kei [UNIFESP]; Taborda, Carlos Pelleschi [UNIFESP] (Springer, 2008-04-01)
      Chemotherapy is the basis of treatment of paracoccidioidomycosis in its various forms. Depending on the Paracoccidioides brasiliensis virulence, the status of host immunity, the degree of tissue involvement and fungal ...
