Regulation of the Leishmania-induced innate inflammatory response by the protein tyrosine phosphatase SHP-1.

Abstract

Modulation of the phagocyte protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) SHP-1 by the parasite Leishmania favors its survival and propagation within its mammalian host. In vivo, the absence of SHP-1 leads to virtually absent footpad swelling, accompanied by enhanced inducible nitric oxide synthase expression. In this study, using an air pouch model, we show that… (More)
