Effects of alpha-adrenergic agonists on Toxoplasma gondii replication in human umbilical vein endothelial cells.

Abstract

We investigated the effects of alpha-adrenergic on the capacity of Toxoplasma gondii to invade and proliferate in cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells. Pretreatment of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) with alpha 2-adrenergic led to a high degree of intracellular killing of T. gondii in these cells. Moreover alpha 2-adrenergics… (More)
