BACKGROUND Dengue viruses (DENV) attach to the host cell surface and subsequently enter the cell by receptor-mediated endocytosis. Several primary and low affinity co-receptors for this flavivirus have been identified. However, the presence of these binding molecules on the cell surface does not necessarily render the cell susceptible to infection.(More)
Previous reports have revealed that calmodulin antagonism by melatonin is followed by microtubule enlargements and neurite outgrowths in neuroblastoma N1E-115 cells. In addition, activation of protein kinase C (PKC) by this neurohormone is also followed by increased vimentin phosphorylation, and reorganization of vimentin intermediate filaments (IFs) in(More)
The main vector of dengue in America is the mosquito Aedes aegypti, which is infected by dengue virus (DENV) through receptors of midgut epithelial cells. The envelope protein (E) of dengue virus binds to receptors present on the host cells through its domain III that has been primarily recognized to bind cell receptors. In order to identify potential(More)
