Differentiation of macrophages into foamy (lipid-laden) macrophages is a common pathological observation in tuberculous granulomas both in experimental settings as well as in clinical conditions;(More)
Parasite‐derived lipids may play important roles in host‐pathogen interactions and escape mechanisms. Herein, we evaluated the role of schistosomal‐derived lipids in Toll‐like receptor (TLR)-2 and(More)
Macrophages have important roles in both lipid metabolism and inflammation and are central to immunity to intracellular pathogens. Foam-like, lipid-laden macrophages are present during the course of(More)
Lipid bodies (lipid droplets) are lipid-rich organelles with functions in cell metabolism and signaling. Here, we investigate the mechanisms of Trypanosoma cruzi-induced lipid body formation and(More)
Lipid bodies (also known as lipid droplets) are emerging as inflammatory organelles with roles in the innate immune response to infections and inflammatory processes. In this study, we identified(More)
