Induction and persistence in vivo of NK/LAK activity by a mannoprotein component of Candida albicans cell wall.

Abstract

In a previous study we demonstrated that NK/LAK effectors are quickly induced in the peritoneal cavity of CD2F1 mice by a booster dose with inactivated Candida albicans (CA) cells or by the purified cell wall mannoprotein (MP), for a long time after CA sensitization. In this study we investigated the immunologic nature and kinetics of early events of the… (More)
