Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic human mycosis in Latin America caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, a dimorphic pathogenic fungus that lives as a mold in the environment and as yeast during infections of human lungs. In this work, we provide evidence that the inhibition of Hsp90 by geldanamycin (GDA) impairs the proliferation of the yeast, but has(More)
Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2) is considered to be a bona fide oncogenic factor, although results from our group and others call this into question. Here, we report that exogenous recombinant FGF2 irreversibly inhibits proliferation by inducing senescence in Ras-dependent malignant mouse cells, but not in immortalized nontumorigenic cell lines. We report(More)
