Induction and abrogation of LACK reactive cells in the evolution of human leishmaniasis.
Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from cutaneous leishmaniasis patients with ongoing Leishmania aethiopica infection and individuals cured/under treatment from L. infantum or L. donovani infection were stimulated in vitro with LACK, the Leishmania homologue of receptors for activated C kinase. The LACK protein is conserved in related leishmanial species and is expressed both in the promastigote and amastigote stages of Leishmania. Our results show that LACK induced marked NK and some ...Expand abstract
