Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (Pb) is a dimorphic fungal pathogen that causes paracoccidioidomycosis, the most severe deep mycosis from South America. Although cell mediated immunity is considered the most efficient protective mechanism against Pb infection, mechanisms of innate immunity are poorly defined. Herein, we investigated the interaction of the… CONTINUE READING
