The virulence potential of 51 Listeria monocytogenes isolates, including strains from cheese, cheese production environments and from human cases of listeriosis, was evaluated in this study. The isolates were used to infect HT-29 cell monolayers in an in vitro test of virulence, based on a plaque-forming assay (PFA). Fifteen selected isolates were used for(More)
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is a pathogenic fungus that undergoes a temperature-dependent cell morphology change from mycelium (22 degrees C) to yeast (36 degrees C). It is assumed that this morphological transition correlates with the infection of the human host. Our goal was to identify genes expressed in the mycelium (M) and yeast (Y) forms by EST(More)
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a widely utilized endocrine disruptor capable of mimicking endogenous hormones, employed in the manufacture of numerous consumer products, thereby interfering with physiological cellular functions. Recent research has shown that BPA alters epigenetic cellular mechanisms in mammals and may be correlated to enhanced cellular senescence.(More)
