AU - Kottom, Theodore J.. AU - Villegas, Leah. AU - Limper, Andrew H.. PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010. N2 - Pneumocystis carinii (Pc) causes severe pneumonia in immunocompromised hosts. The binding of Pc trophic forms to alveolar epithelial cells is a central feature of infection, inducing the expression and activation of Pc-Ste20, a gene participating in mating, proliferation, and pseudohyphal growth. In related fungi, Ste20 proteins are generally activated by immediate upstream small G proteins of the Cdc42-like family. PcCdc42 has not been previously described in Pneumocystis. To address the potential role of such a G protein in Pneumocystis, PcCdc42 was cloned from a Pc cDNA library. Using the full-length 576-bp PcCdc42 cDNA sequence, a CHEF blot of genomic DNA yielded a single band, providing evidence that this gene is ...
Then is this host specific antigenic variation due to different subspecies of P.carinii infecting their particular favorite flavor of host?

Samples of ambient air collected with three different types of spore traps in a rural location were examined for the presence of Pneumocystis carinii by screening for P. carinii-specific DNA sequences by DNA amplification. Eleven spore trap samples were analyzed by nested PCR, using oligonucleotide primers designed for the gene encoding the mitochondrial large subunit rRNA of P. carinii f. sp. carinii and P. carinii f. sp. hominis. The samples were collected over a 3-year period during the months of May to September, with a range of sampling times from 9 to 240 h. One air sample from an animal facility housing P. carinii-infected rats was also examined. P. carinii-specific amplification products were obtained from samples from each of the spore traps. The amplification products from eight air samples were cloned and sequenced. The majority of the recombinants from each of these samples had sequences identical to those of P. carinii f. sp. carinii and P. carinii f. sp. hominis, and a number of ...
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in human immunodeficiency virus-infected individuals, despite the widespread use of prophylaxis and the development of new chemotherapeutic agents. The study of P. carinii and of pulmonary host defenses directed against it has been limited by lack of reliable, reproducible methods to obtain pure populations of organisms in useful quantities. While recent success has been achieved with cultures of rat P. carinii organisms, cultures of mouse P. carinii organisms have not been successful. Experiments were performed to determine whether P. carinii organisms derived from mice could be propagated in vitro. Mouse P. carinii organisms, obtained from the lungs of chronically infected athymic mice, were inoculated into spinner flasks containing HEL299 feeder cells seated on microcarrier beads. The numbers of mouse P. carinii organisms increased significantly over 7 days in culture. To test the viability and pathogenicity of ...

Our thanks to Dr. Melanie T. Cushion for her comments on the life cycle text.. This is a generalised life cycle proposed by John J. Ruffolo, Ph.D. (Cushion, MT, 1988) for the various species of Pneumocystis. These fungi are found in the lungs of mammals where they reside without causing overt infection until the hosts immune system becomes debilitated. Then, an oftentimes lethal pneumonia can result. Asexual phase: trophic forms replicate by mitosis. Sexual phase: haploid trophic forms conjugate and produce a zygote or sporocyte (early cyst). The zygote undergoes meiosis and subsequent mitosis to produce eight haploid nuclei (late phase cyst). Spores exhibit different shapes (such as, spherical and elongated forms). It is postulated that elongation of the spores precedes release from the spore case. It is believed that the release occurs through a rent in the cell wall. After release, the empty spore case usually collapses, but retains some residual cytoplasm. A trophic stage, where the ...
To the editor: Extrapulmonary dissemination of Pneumocystis carinii is rare. To our knowledge, P. carinii infection of the bone marrow has been reported in only three patients, each having a nonmalignant immunodeficiency syndrome (1-3). Conversely, P. carinii pneumonia occurs frequently in homosexual men who have T-cell immunodeficiency (4) as well as in patients with various malignancies after chemotherapy (5). However, infection with this organism has not been described in the bone marrow of patients with lymphoma. We report the cases of two patients with lymphoma who had such infections and propose bone marrow biopsy as a routine examination to confirm ...
Summary Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) is the most common opportunistic infection in children who have acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Despite the publication of guidelines for prophylaxis against PCP for children infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in 1991 (1), ongoing AIDS surveillance has detected no substantial decrease in PCP incidence among HIV-infected infants. Studies indicate that this continued incidence is associated with failure to identify HIV-infected children before PCP occurs and with limitations in the ability of CD4+ measurements to identify children at risk for PCP. In March 1994, the National Pediatric & Family HIV Resource Center, * in collaboration with CDC, convened a working group to review additional data about the occurrence of PCP among HIV-infected children and to reevaluate the 1991 PCP prophylaxis guidelines for children. This report summarizes these new data and presents revised PCP prevention guidelines that recommend a) promptly ...
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), the most common presenting manifestation of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), is a major and recurring cause of morbidity and mortality for persons infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In recent years, important advances have been made in understanding which patient subpopulations are athighest risk for developing PCP and in the design of chemotherapeutic regimens that can reduce the frequency of this illness. Recently, a number of experts* convened by the National Institutes of Health independently reviewed data on prophylaxis against PCP among persons infected with HIV, and then provided recommendations to the U.S. Public Health Service concerning which persons should receive prophylaxis and what specific prophylactic regimens should be used. The resulting guidelines are detailed below. BACKGROUND Since the early 1980s, management of PCP has become increasingly successful, and several effective chemotherapeutic regimens are ...

Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Much remains unknown about the basic biology of P. carinii and studies of this infection have been hampered by the lack of cultivation methods. We developed a sensitive and specific assay for P. carinii by utilizing DNA amplification of the P. carinii dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) gene. By this method, P. carinii DNA was detected in the lungs of rats with experimentally induced P. carinii pneumonia 2 wk before the onset of histopathological changes. DNA amplification analysis of serum demonstrated that by 10 wk of corticosteroid treatment, 12 of 12 (100%) infected rats had circulating DHFR DNA. P. carinii DHFR DNA also was detected in the serum of patients with AIDS and active P. carinii pneumonia (12 of 14 sera collected prospectively). Patients with advanced AIDS but without a history of P. carinii pneumonia were negative by this assay (0 of 6 sera ...

The development of a granulomatous histological reaction in PCP is unusual, occurring in only 3% of the cases of PCP identified in patients with malignancy at our institution. All of these patients had expected risk factors for development of PCP but they had atypical clinical features. The presentation was insidious with very minimal symptoms and the radiographs showed a reticulonodular pattern rather than the expected interstitial-alveolar infiltrates. This pattern is more characteristic of HIV infected patients than of those with malignancy where the presentation is often subacute to fulminant and dyspnoea is the prominent symptom.6 In addition, an increased serum level of LDH, which is a sensitive marker for the presence of PCP, was not found in our patients.7 The LDH level was normal or only slightly raised.. The unexpected finding of most clinical significance was the non-diagnostic bronchoscopy in all cases, even in the two cases from whom transbronchial biopsy specimens were taken in ...

Screening for this agent in rodents in research studies can be important for obtaining reliable and interpretable results. Because this pathogen occurs widely in the environment, many animals have been exposed to it and serology testing is therefore unable to reliably determine animals current carrier status.

Summary Sera from patients with likely and possible Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) on the basis of clinical information and laboratory investigations were tested by immunoblotting to assess the usefulness of trophozoites in the serodiagnosis of PCP. IgG antibodies to 50-60- kDa proteins were demonstrated with cyst antigen, but antibodies to additional proteins of 61, 70, 82, 95, 99 and 116 kDa were found with trophozoite antigen. These bands were not demonstrated with control sera. IgG antibody to the 116-kDa protein was found in 18 (46%) of 39 sera from patients with possible PCP compared with 5 (17%) of 30 sera from patients with likely PCP. There was no other significant difference between the two patient groups in detection of these proteins. Sera with higher indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) IgG titres were more likely to be immunoblot positive. Only 4 of 16 patients with likely PCP were IgG negative in the IFA; three of these were IgG immunoblot positive. In 4 of 10 patients with
The nonspecific histopathologic changes of diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) were the only findings in nine of 17 lung biopsy specimens containing Pneumocystis carinii infection.

Pneumocystis is a fungal genus that contains multiple species. One member of the genus that has not been formally analysed for its phylogenetic relationships and possible species status is the Pneumocystis found in laboratory mice, Pneumocystis murina sp. nov. (type strain ATCC PRA-111T=CBS 114898T), formerly known as Pneumocystis carinii f. sp. muris. To advance research in this area, approximately 3000 bp of additional DNA sequence were obtained from the locus encoding rRNAs. This sequence and others were used to determine genetic distances between P. murina and other members of the genus. These distances indicated that P. murina DNA is most similar to that of the species of Pneumocystis found in laboratory rats. Nevertheless, P. murina is at least as diverged from these other Pneumocystis species as species in other fungal genera are from each other. The 18S rRNA gene sequence divergence exhibited by P. murina could not be ascribed to accelerated evolution of this gene as similar levels of divergence

Glycosphingolipid (GSL) Lactosyl Ceramide (LacCer) is thought to be involved in Pneumocystis interaction with the host. Our previous results show that treatment with glycosphingolipid synthesis inhibitor PDMP reduces the fungus lung burden as well as symptoms of inflammation in mice with Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP). Experiments were set up to resolve whether anti-inflammatory effects were due to the specific mechanisms involved in innate immune responses to Pneumocystis, or to some general anti-inflammatory property of PDMP. Animals were infected with live organisms, or challenged with either beta-glucan (the pro-inflammatory component of Pneumocystis cell wall) or LPS (inducer of lung inflammation unrelated to Pneumocystis). At the experimental endpoint the following inflammatory parameters were assessed: leukocyte recruitment to the lungs, production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, histopathology and lung damage. Results show that glucan-induced acute inflammation partially ...

ClinicalTrials.gov summary of Comparison of Two Dosage Regimens of Oral Dapsone for Prophylaxis of Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia in Pediatric HIV Infection
Pneumocystis carinii was propagated in vitro with primary embryonic chick epithelial lung (CEL) cells. Viability and growth of the organism were demonstrated by direct observation of the reproductive cycle in the Sykes-Moore chamber, serial passage with an increase in the number of mature cysts forms, the cytopathic effect of the organism on cell culture, and inhibition of growth of the organism by specific antiserum and pentamidine isethionate. Attempts to culture P. carinii indefinitely were not successful. However, cyst forms derived from murine and human sources increased 100-fold and 10-fold, respectively, during CEL cell culture passages. Serial passage of trophozoites alone resulted in the development of typical CPE and a maximum number of 2.8 X 10(3) cyst forms. Autoradiographic methods demonstrated active DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis within the cyst and suggest that metabolic interaction between the host cells and the organisms occurred. The nature of the attachment of P. carinii to ...
Two hundred and eighty two specimens from 220 patients positive for HIV with respiratory tract symptoms, or febrile illness, or both, were examined for the presence of Pneumocystis carinii.

The specific system that is used to deliver PEN to the lungs may determine whether a therapeutically effective dose is attained in the lungs. Therefore, this study will establish the amount of PEN that is deposited in the lungs of patients enrolled in protocols ACTG 021 and ACTG 081, who are being treated with PEN administered from the Marquest Respirgard II nebulizer.. Approximately 4 weeks after patients in ACTG 021 and ACTG 081 have begun PEN aerosol therapy for the prevention of PCP, patients undergo the first radioactive aerosol study. The patient inhales a mist while sitting with his/her back against a gamma camera. The resulting picture outlines the lungs. This mist contains a single dose of PEN mixed with a small amount of radioactivity (99m-technetium ertechnetate). The gamma camera determines where the particles deposit in the lungs. The radioactivity exposure is equivalent to a typical xray of the ribs. This procedure takes about 45 minutes; 6 hours later another 30-minute gamma ...
Some compounds articulated around a piperazine or an ethylenediamine linker have been evaluated in vitro to determine their activity in the presence of a 3T6 fibroblast cell line and an axenic culture of Pneumocystis carinii, respectively. The most efficient antifungal derivatives, namely N,N′-bis(benzamidine-4-yl)ethane-1,2-diamine (compound 6, a diamidine) and N-(benzamidine-4-yl)-N′-phenylethane-1,2-diamine (compound 7, a monoamidine), exhibited no cytotoxicity and were evaluated in vivo in a rat model. Only the diamidine 6 emerged as a promising hit for further studies.
