A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

A major innate immune response to inhaled conidia of the opportunistic pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) is the synthesis of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which include tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, a known inducer of apoptosis. Modulation of host cell apoptosis has been reported to be one of the mechanisms whereby pathogens overcome host cell defences. Our study was designed to investigate whether or not Af conidia could modulate apoptosis induced by TNF-alpha or staurosporine (STS). Exposure of epithelial cells treated by these inducers and exposed to Af conidia decreased the number of apoptotic cells detected by Annexin V staining, analysis of nuclear morphology, terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated fluorescein-dUTP nick end-labelling reaction and immunoblotting. Inhibition of apoptosis by Af conidia was seen in cells of the A549 pneumocyte II line, human tracheal epithelial 16HBE and primary human respiratory cells. Inhibition of apoptosis by Af conidia was also observed when apoptosis was induced by co-cultivating A549 cells with activated human alveolar macrophages. Unlike Af conidia, conidia of Cladosporium cladosporioides as well as latex beads or killed Af conidia have no inhibitory effect on TNF-alpha or STS-induced apoptosis. For TNF-induced apoptosis, the observed anti-apoptotic effect of Af conidia was found to be associated with a significant reduction of caspase-3.
