During Plasmodium falciparum asexual intraerythrocytic development, the host's cell plasma membrane is modified by the insertion of parasite proteins. One or more of these modifications mediate the cytoadherence of infected erythrocytes to host vascular endothelium. However, these surface antigens can be the target of cytophilic antibodies which promote(More)
The serine protease thrombin, independently of its participation in hemostasis and thrombosis, has been involved in tissue repair and remodeling, embryogenesis, angiogenesis, and development and progression of atherosclerosis. Many of these functions appear to be mediated by specific thrombin receptors, particularly the protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR1).(More)
The binding between marcrophage-like cells J774G8 and Leishmania braziliensis (NR) promastigotes was studied ‘in vitro’ by a radioisotopic assay under various conditions in the absence of serum. Different sugars, N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, D-glucose, D-mannose, D-galactose, and chitin, diminished the binding of the parasite, whereas other sugars, D-arabinose,(More)
Members of the family of large chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans (CSPGs), such as versican and aggrecan, are involved in early heart development, and in the development and progression of atherosclerosis and restenosis. Given the important roles played by versican and aggrecan in such processes, we sought to determine whether these molecules are present in(More)
According to previous studies, a process of endothelial activation seems to be occurring in the chick embryo between days 7 and 18. Also, endothelial cells respond to collagen as a substratum between 12 and 18 days, and this response diminishes until it almost disappears after birth. In the present study, aortas from chick embryos (days 7 to 21), and from(More)
The NFkappaB family of transcription factors, particularly the activated p50/p65 heterodimer, is expressed in vascular cells during intimal thickening formation when hemodynamic conditions are altered. Here, we report that p50, p65, IkappaBalpha and IKKalpha display different spatial and temporal patterns of expression and distribution during both chicken(More)
