ObjectivesNumerous receptors have been implicated in recognition of pathogenic fungi by macrophages, including the β-glucan receptor dectin-1. The role of scavenger receptors (SRs) in anti-fungal immunity is not well characterized.MethodsWe studied uptake of unopsonized Saccharomycetes cerevisiae (zymosan) and live Candida albicans yeasts as well as zymosan-stimulated H2O2 production in J774 macrophage-like cells and peritoneal exudate macrophages (PEMs). The role of different receptors was… CONTINUE READING
