Untreated mouse peritoneal macrophages as well as macrophages treated with concanavalin A (ConA) were incubated in the presence of untreated or ConA-treated epimastigotes and trypomastigotes of Trypanosoma cruzi. Treatment of epimastigotes or trypomastigotes with ConA increased or decreased their uptake by macrophages, respectively. Treatment of their macrophages with ConA reduced by 70% and increased by five times the ingestion of epimastigotes and trypomastigotes, respectively. These results… CONTINUE READING
