Activation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase attenuates Leishmania donovani infection in macrophages.

Abstract

Leishmania-induced macrophage dysfunctions have been correlated with altered signaling events. In this work, we report that SB203580, a specific inhibitor of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK), increases Leishmania donovani survival in human peripheral blood mononuclear macrophages. Consistent with this finding, activation of p38 and c-jun N… (More)
