The form of (1-3)-β-d glucan found in the cell walls of the anamorphic Trichocomaceae that grow on damp building materials is considered to have potent toxic and inflammatory effects on cells of the respiratory system. It is also considered to have a potential role in the development of non-allergenic respiratory health effects. While human studies involving experimental exposures all point to the inflammatory potential of pure curdlan, a linear (1-3)-β-d glucan in a triple helix configuration… 
Induction of Dectin-1 and asthma-associated signal transduction pathways in RAW 264.7 cells by a triple-helical (1, 3)-β-d glucan, curdlan
TLDR
It is found that curdlan as a non-allergenic potentiator modulates a network of transduction signaling pathways not only associated with TH-1, TH-2, and TH-3 cell responses including asthma potentiation, but a variety of other cell responses in RAW 264.7 cells.
nflammation-associated gene transcription and expression in mouse lungs nduced by low molecular weight compounds from fungi from the built nvironment
Few metabolites from fungi found indoors have been tested for inflammatory mediators endpoints in primary cultures of alveolar macrophages or in vivo. In this study, mice were intratracheally
Inflammation-associated gene transcription and expression in mouse lungs induced by low molecular weight compounds from fungi from the built environment.
TLDR
The results further confirm the inflammatory nature of metabolites/toxins from such fungi can contribute to the development of non-allergenic respiratory health effects and the immunomodulation of toxin-induced pro-inflammatory lung responses.
Effects of low molecular weight fungal compounds on inflammatory gene transcription and expression in mouse alveolar macrophages.
TLDR
The results not only indicate that low molecular weight compounds from fungi that grow in damp built environments are potently pro-inflammatory in vitro, but also highlights the important role AMs play in innate lung defence, and against exposure toLow molecular weight fungal compounds.
Inflammation-associated gene expression in RAW 264.7 macrophages induced by toxins from fungi common on damp building materials.
TLDR
Evidence is added to a body of evidence supporting the role of low molecular weight compounds from damp building materials as pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs).
Dectin-1 Is Expressed in Human Lung and Mediates the Proinflammatory Immune Response to Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae
TLDR
In human airways, epithelium-expressed Dectin-1 may play a significant role in generating an NTHI-mediated, proinflammatory immune response, suggesting an important impact on the pathogenesis of COPD.
Macrophage Dectin-1 Expression Is Controlled by Leukotriene B4 via a GM-CSF/PU.1 Axis
TLDR
The results identify LTB4-BLT1 signaling as an unrecognized controller of dectin-1 transcription via GM-CSF and PU.1 that is required for fungi-protective host responses.
Immunomodulation of Fungal β-Glucan in Host Defense Signaling by Dectin-1
TLDR
The elucidation of β-glucan and its signaling pathway will undoubtedly open a new research area on its potential therapeutic applications, including as immunostimulants for antifungal and anti-cancer regimens.
β-1,3-Glucan-Induced Host Phospholipase D Activation Is Involved in Aspergillus fumigatus Internalization into Type II Human Pneumocyte A549 Cells
TLDR
The data indicate that host cell PLD activity induced by β-1,3-glucan on the surface of germinated conidia is important for the efficient internalization of A. fumigatus into A549 lung epithelial cells.
Activation of the inflammasome by (1,3)-β-glucans and trichothecene mycotoxins in human macrophages
TLDR
This thesis revealed that a major fungal cell wall component, (1,3)-β-glucans, triggers secretion of IL-1β in human macrophages, and NLR containing multiprotein complexes called inflammasomes are considered as key mediators of inflammation.

(1→3)-β-d-glucan — relationship to indoor air-related symptoms, allergy and asthma
TLDR
Children seem to be a particular group at risk due to (1→3)-β- d -glucan exposure, because of the mechanisms involved in the normal development of the immune system, according to available data.
(1-->3)-beta-D-glucan - relationship to indoor air-related symptoms, allergy and asthma.
TLDR
In view of the mechanisms involved in the normal development of the immune system, children seem to be a particular group at risk due to (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan exposure.
Pulmonary Exposure to 1 → 3-β-Glucan Alters Adaptive Immune Responses in Rats
TLDR
Rats exposed to zymosan had an increase in acute inflammation, and the altered lymphocyte profiles were consistent with the findings of epidemiology studies.
Activation of Macrophages by Linear (1→3)-β-d-Glucans
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that macrophages respond to linear (1→3)-β-d-glucans, possibly released from fungal cell walls, via a receptor(s) harboring the TIR domain, such as a Toll-like receptor, to induce inflammatory reactions.
Pulmonary cell infiltration after chronic exposure to (1→3)--D-glucan and cigarette smoke
TLDR
It is demonstrated that (1→3)--D-glucan synergistically increases the inflammation induced by cigarette smoke, which may be a downregulation of the macrophage control of inflammatory cell migration into the lung tissue.
Potentiation of Histamine Release by Microfungal (1→3)‐ and (1→6)‐β‐D‐Glucans

TLDR
The currently available epidemiological data do not permit conclusions to be drawn regarding the presence of an association between environmental (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan exposure and specific adverse health effects, nor is it clear from the currently available evidence which specific immunological mechanisms underlie the presumed health effects.
Exposure to Particulate 1→3-β-Glucans Induces Greater Pulmonary Toxicity Than Soluble 1→3-β-Glucans in Rats

TLDR
The pulmonary reaction of rats to 1-->3-beta-glucan (zymosan A) exposure was assessed and a good correlation (r2= .8) between recovery of PMN in BAL, CL, or nitric oxide production and the days postexposure was observed.

Pulmonary in vivo inflammatory responses of the lung to zymosan was examined by intratracheal aerosolization to C57BL/6, TLR2- TLR4-, MyD88-, and complement-deficient mice, and the effect of alveolar macrophage depletion on in vivo pulmonary responses was assessed.
