The interaction of leishmania parasites with macrophages is known to be receptor mediated. Previous study from this laboratory (J. Parasitol. 82:632, 1996) showed the significant involvement of LPG and gp63 receptors in the recognition of virulent strains onto the macrophages. The role of carbohydrate receptors--the other major receptors besides LPG and gp63 receptors, in the recognition of both virulent (strains AG83 and GE1) and avirulent (strain UR6) leishmania onto the host macrophages has… Expand
The Expression of Mannose Receptors in Skin Fibroblast and Their Involvement in Leishmania (L.) amazonensis Invasion
TLDR
After longer periods of Leishmania:fibroblasts contact, the modulation noted in the host mannose receptors was reverted concomitantly to the infection control, suggesting that the parasites were required for the alteration maintenance and providing evidences that the SF may display microbicidal mechanisms to control the LeishMania infection.

MODULATION OF MACROPHAGE MANNOSE RECEPTOR AFFECTS THE UPTAKE OF VIRULENT AND AVIRULENT LEISHMANIA DONOVANI PROMASTIGOTES
TLDR
The results suggest that the up- and downregulation of the mannose receptor of macrophages may play a role in affecting L. donovani infection. Expand

The Mannose Receptor: From Endocytic Receptor and Biomarker to Regulator of (Meta)Inflammation
TLDR
The role of the mannose receptor and other CLECs in regulating the activation of immune cells and in shaping inflammatory responses is highlighted. Expand
Dissimilar peptidase production by avirulent and virulent promastigotes of Leishmania braziliensis: inference on the parasite proliferation and interaction with macrophages
TLDR
The results revealed that the virulent strain produced higher amounts of gp63 and cpb molecules, detected both in the surface and cytoplasm regions, than the avirulent counterpart. Expand
The mannose receptor in macrophage biology
TLDR
The mechanism responsible for the fungi-induced MR-shedding was studied and it was demonstrated that MR cleavage upon -glucan recognition requires dectin-1-mediated signalling involving Syk, PI3K, and, partially, Raf-1 and that is mediated by a non-secreted metalloproteinase. Expand
A Perspective on the Emergence of Sialic Acids as Potent Determinants Affecting Leishmania Biology
TLDR
This paper focuses on identification, characterization, and differential distribution of sialoglycotope having the linkage-specific 9-O-acetylated sialic acid in promastigotes of different Leishmania sp. Expand
Influence of the mannose receptor in host immune responses.
TLDR
Recent observations relating to MR function in immune responses are summarized and its participation in phagocytosis, antigen processing and presentation, cell migration and intracellular signalling is focused on. Expand
9-O-acetylated sialic acids enhance entry of virulent Leishmania donovani promastigotes into macrophages
TLDR
The results conclusively demonstrate the increased presence of 9-O-acetylated sialic acid on promastigotes of virulent Leishmania donovani as compared to avirulent UR6 and their subsequent role in entry within macrophages. Expand
Host and parasite determinants of Leishmania survival following phagocytosis by macrophages
TLDR
It is hypothesized that events occurring early during parasite-host interaction influence whether the pathogen ultimately survives or is eliminated in the intracellular environment, and that these processes are facilitated by determinants from both the macrophage and the incoming Leishmania. Expand

Roles of CR3 and mannose receptors in the attachment and ingestion of Leishmania donovani by human mononuclear phagocytes
TLDR
The results suggest that the MFR and CR3 independently participate in the attachment and ingestion of L. donovani promastigotes by human macrophages. Expand
Evidence that Leishmania donovani utilizes a mannose receptor on human mononuclear phagocytes to establish intracellular parasitism.
TLDR
These studies suggest that L. donovani promastigotes may utilize a receptor system on human monocyte-derived macrophages, the MFR, to efficiently parasitize the human host. Expand
Recognition of the major cell surface glycoconjugates of Leishmania parasites by the human serum mannan-binding protein.
TLDR
Data suggest that MBP has the potential to opsonize the major developmental stages of Leishmania parasites, and provide a possible mechanism for the antibody-independent activation of complement on their surface. Expand
Kinetics of entry of virulent and avirulent strains of Leishmania donovani into macrophages: a possible role of virulence molecules (gp63 and LPG).
TLDR
The expression of the gp63 gene is involved in the recognition and intracellular entry of visceral Leishmania into the macrophages in addition to the cutaneous species demonstrated previously. Expand

Differences in the ability of LAM from different M. tuberculosis strains to mediate adherence to macrophages and to serve as ligands for the macrophage MR despite the presence of terminal dimannosyl units are demonstrated. Expand
The major concanavalin A-binding surface glycoprotein of Leishmania donovani chagasi promastigotes is involved in attachment to human macrophages.

The results suggest that the major Con A-binding surface glycoprotein from L. donovani chagasi promastigotes is important in attachment to human macrophages, and may be a factor in parasite virulence for a mammalian host. Expand
The mouse macrophage receptor for C3bi (CR3) is a major mechanism in the phagocytosis of Leishmania promastigotes.

Data indicate that the inhibition observed in the presence of M1/70 was specific for the CR3 and that the macrophage receptor for C3bi plays a major role in the phagocytosis of Leishmania major promastigotes, even in the absence of serum. Expand
