Alternatively activated macrophages, generated in a T-helper 2 environment, have demonstrated roles in wound repair and tissue remodeling in addition to being charged with immune tasks. Because the hydrolytic chemistries of the phagosomal lumen are central to many of these functions, we investigated their modification after alternative activation with IL-4(More)
The cysteine cathepsins B, S, and L are functionally linked to antigen processing, and hence to autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis. Stemming from several studies that demonstrate that mice can be protected from experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) through the pharmacologic inhibition of cysteine cathepsins, it has been suggested that(More)
Schistosomiasis is one of the most important neglected tropical diseases. Despite effective chemotherapeutic treatments, this disease continues to afflict hundreds of millions of people. Understanding the natural intermediate snail hosts of schistosome parasites is vital to the suppression of this disease. A recently identified genomic region in Caribbean(More)
