BACKGROUND FKBP51 (FKBP5 Official Symbol) is a large molecular weight component of the family of FK506 binding proteins (FKBP). In recent years, research studies from our laboratory highlighted functions for FKBP51 in the control of apoptosis and melanoma progression. FKBP51 expression correlated with the invasiveness and aggressiveness of melanoma. Since a(More)
Monocyte/macrophages represent the first line of defense against protozoan parasites. Different mechanisms of monocyte suppression by Toxoplasma gondii that sustain parasite invasion and persistence have been described, including apoptosis. In the present study, we investigated the effect of microbial excretory–secretory polypeptides, namely the microneme(More)
