CD4+CD25highforkhead box protein 3+ regulatory T lymphocytes suppress interferon‐γ and CD107 expression in CD4+ and CD8+ T cells from tuberculous pleural effusions
Tuberculous pleural effusion is characterized by a T helper type 1 (Th1) profile, but an excessive Th1 response may also cause tissue damage that might be controlled by regulatory mechanisms. In theExpand

Outbreaks of mycobacterium tuberculosis MDR strains induce high IL-17 T-cell response in patients with MDR tuberculosis that is closely associated with high antigen load.
BACKGROUND The proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 17 (IL-17) plays an important role in immune responses but it is also associated with tissue-damaging inflammation. So, we evaluated the ability ofExpand

A Functional Misexpression Screen Uncovers a Role for Enabled in Progressive Neurodegeneration
Drosophila is a well-established model to study the molecular basis of neurodegenerative diseases. We carried out a misexpression screen to identify genes involved in neurodegeneration examiningExpand

Mycobacterium tuberculosis multi‐drug‐resistant strain M induces IL‐17+IFNγ– CD4+ T cell expansion through an IL‐23 and TGF‐β‐dependent mechanism in patients with MDR‐TB tuberculosis
We have reported previously that T cells from patients with multi‐drug‐resistant tuberculosis (MDR‐TB) express high levels of interleukin (IL)‐17 in response to the MDR strain M (Haarlem family) ofExpand

Mycobacterium tuberculosis Multidrug Resistant Strain M Induces an Altered Activation of Cytotoxic CD8+ T Cells
In human tuberculosis (TB), CD8+ T cells contribute to host defense by the release of Th1 cytokines and the direct killing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb)-infected macrophages via granuleExpand

Two genetically-related multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains induce divergent outcomes of infection in two human macrophage models.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis has a considerable degree of genetic variability resulting in different epidemiology and disease outcomes. We evaluated the pathogen-host cell interaction of twoExpand

C5aR contributes to the weak Th1 profile induced by an outbreak strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
C5a anaphylatoxin is a component of the complement system involved in the modulation of T-cell polarization. Herein we investigated whether C5a receptors, C5aR and C5L2, modulate the cytokineExpand

Differential induction of macrophage cell death by antigens of a clustered and a non-clustered multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain from Haarlem family.
Some multidrug-resistant (MDR) Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) genotypes are the cause of large outbreaks, including strain M identified in Argentina. In contrast, its kin strain 410 has only causedExpand

Microbial planktonic communities in lakes from a Patagonian basaltic plateau: influence of the water level decrease
In this study we analyzed the structure of the microbial planktonic communities in 16 lakes located in one of the Patagonian plateaus. In these environments picoplankton constitute a key component ofExpand

New findings on the effect of glyphosate on autotrophic and heterotrophic picoplankton structure: A microcosm approach.
Massive use of glyphosate-based herbicides in agricultural activities has led to the appearance of this herbicide in freshwater systems, which represents a potential threat to these systems and theirExpand
