Cytokine gene expression patterns and immune responses to systemic Candida albicans infection in inbred mice.
MetadataShow full item record
Aims of the research:To characterise the tissue histology and tissue distribution patterns of C. albicans during systemic murine candidiasis.To develop a reliable, reproducible and sensitive SQ-RT-PCR for the quantitation of in vivo cytokine gene transcription.To use this technique to determine the in vivo pattern of tissue specific cytokine gene expression during systemic candidiasis.To determine if cytokine gene expression patterns vary between resistant BALB/c and sensitive CBA/CaH mice during primary systemic candidiasis.To determine if differences in tissue distribution of C. albicans in infected mice is matched by differences in tissue responses to infection.To determine if cytokine mRNA expression patterns during secondary systemic candidiasis, are different to those during primary systemic candidiasis.To determine if cytokine gene expression patterns vary between resistant BALB/c and sensitive CBA/CaH mice during secondary systemic candidiasis.
