Expression of infection-related genes in parasites and host during murine experimental infection with Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis.

Leishmania parasites are able to interfere with host immune responses on many levels, as T cell responses balance, as observed in the murine model of infection. In the present study, we analyzed genes expression in both host and parasite during the progression of infection. Host genes associated to T-lymphocytes responses, MHC classes I and II, as well as… CONTINUE READING
