Interaction of Cryptococcus neoformans Rim101 and protein kinase A regulates capsule.
(PLoS Pathog, 2010-02-19)
Cryptococcus neoformans is a prevalent human fungal pathogen that must survive within various tissues in order to establish a human infection. We have identified the C. neoformans Rim101 transcription factor, a highly conserved ...
PKC signaling regulates drug resistance of the fungal pathogen Candida albicans via circuitry comprised of Mkc1, calcineurin, and Hsp90.
(PLoS Pathog, 2010-08-26)
Fungal pathogens exploit diverse mechanisms to survive exposure to antifungal drugs. This poses concern given the limited number of clinically useful antifungals and the growing population of immunocompromised individuals ...
The dopamine metabolite 3-methoxytyramine is a neuromodulator.
(PLoS One, 2010-10-18)
Dopamine (3-hydroxytyramine) is a well-known catecholamine neurotransmitter involved in multiple physiological functions including movement control. Here we report that the major extracellular metabolite of dopamine, ...
Direct TLR2 signaling is critical for NK cell activation and function in response to vaccinia viral infection.
(PLoS Pathog, 2010-03-12)
Natural killer (NK) cells play an essential role in innate immune control of poxviral infections in vivo. However, the mechanism(s) underlying NK cell activation and function in response to poxviruses remains poorly understood. ...
