We investigated the capacity of an alkali-insoluble cell wall polysaccharide fraction (F1) of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis to induce rat polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) migratory and chemiluminescence (CL) responses. Normal rat serum pre-incubated with F1 induced a chemotactic neutrophil response which was fully abolished by heat-inactivation. The… CONTINUE READING
