Draft Genome Sequence of the Dimorphic Fungus Sporothrix pallida, a Nonpathogenic Species Belonging to Sporothrix, a Genus Containing Agents of Human and Feline Sporotrichosis
ABSTRACT Sporothrix pallida is considered to be a mostly avirulent environmental fungus, phylogenetically closely related to the well-known pathogen Sporothrix schenckii. Here, we present the firstExpand

Downregulation of microRNA-23a suppresses prostate cancer metastasis by targeting the PAK6-LIMK1 signaling pathway
Here we found that levels of miR-23a were decreased in prostate cancer cell lines and tumor tissues. These low levels were associated with poor patients' prognosis. MiR-23a inhibited migration andExpand

In vitro activity of itraconazole in combination with terbinafine against clinical strains of itraconazole-insensitive Sporothrix schenckii.
Four strains of Sporothrix schenckii were isolated from patients with cutaneous sporotrichosis who failed itraconazole (ITC) treatment. To investigate the susceptibility of these strains to ITC andExpand

Cross‐talk of alpha tocopherol‐associated protein and JNK controls the oxidative stress‐induced apoptosis in prostate cancer cells
Excess intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) beyond a threshold can induce apoptosis in cancer cells. However, the signal pathways that can augment the proapoptotic function of ROS remainExpand
