• The combined action of these Yops on cytoplasmic proteins, especially actin, could explain the effects of virulent Y. enterocolitica on macrophage morphology, phagocytic capacity, and respiratory burst activity, all of which rely on cytoskeletal integrity to function normally. (asm.org)
  • The result documented in patients with type one and two DM had increased risk for urinary tract, skin and mucous membranes, and lower respiratory tract infections ( 9 ). (tums.pub)
  • The absence of sex differences in the activities of respiratory burst enzymes in HIV-1 infection may be due to immune activation as a result of active phagocytic leukocytes, immune reactivity and inflammation. (mdpi.com)
  • Priming effect of morphine on the production of tumor necrosis factor-alpha by microglia: implications in respiratory burst activity and human immunodeficiency virus-1 expression. (aspetjournals.org)
  • It was first believed that the major function of this respiratory burst was to generate powerful antibacterial agents by the partial reduction of oxygen. (springer.com)
  • Dr. Cohen and Dr. Britigan (Chapter 5) present some interesting data on the competition between the respiratory burst and bacteria for oxygen. (springer.com)
  • Short-term exposure of rat NR8383 AMs to sterile meconium from human or equine neonates (1.2-24 mg/mL) produced a dose-dependent Show more The meconium aspiration syndrome is an important cause of respiratory distress in newborn infants. (islandscholar.ca)
  • In this volume, we have attempted to bring together the work of experts who have published extensively on the involvement of the respiratory burst in different physiological functions. (springer.com)
  • Compared to non-diabetics, respiratory burst process of polymorphonuclears is obviously decreased in diabetic children. (tums.pub)
  • The effect of short-term exposure to meconium on the respiratory burst response in AMs was quantified using flow cytometry to measure oxidation of dichlorofluorescin diacetate. (islandscholar.ca)
  • We concluded that the pumpkin-grafted cucumber plants increase their salt tolerance via a mechanism involving the root-sourced respiratory burst oxidase homologue-dependent H2O2 production, which enhances Na+ exclusion from the root and promotes an early stomatal closure. (deepdyve.com)
  • This study seeks to determine whether sex differences exist in serum activities of respiratory burst enzymes in HIV-1-infected female and male subjects. (mdpi.com)
  • They present up-to-date versions of the biochemical and metabolic activities associ- ated with the burst. (springer.com)
