Example sentences for: pneumocystis

How can you use “pneumocystis” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Despite the relatively low sequence similarity to bacterial DHPS, all archaeal orthologs have the conserved catalytic residues identified in DHPS (Figure 2) and are confidently predicted, by the hybrid-fold-recognition method, to assume the same fold as DHPS from Pneumocystis carinii and Staphylococcus aureus whose crystal structures have been determined.

  • Tat has been shown to down-regulate mannose receptor, EDF-1, CD3-gamma, and TCR/CD3 surface receptor [ 14 ] . Tat reduces mannose receptor levels and promoter activity in mature macrophages and dendritic cells by interfering with the host transcriptional machinery; resulting in decreased levels of surface mannose receptor needed for Ag (mannosylated albumin uptake) or pathogen capture (Pneumocystis carinii phagocytosis), and eventual delivery to MHC class II-containing intracellular compartments [ 15 ] . EDF-1, a gene down-regulated when endothelial cells are induced to differentiate in vitro , was shown to be down-regulated by Tat at the transcriptional level, resulting in the inhibition of endothelial cell growth and in the transition from a nonpolar cobblestone phenotype to a polar fibroblast-like phenotype [ 16 ] .

  • These two regions could not be well aligned and we could not predict a common structure with comparative analysis with ten Eucaryotic sequences in 1988 (see Figures 35-43 in [ 48 ] ). However, once a larger number of related Eucaryotic 23S-like rRNA sequences was determined, we reanalyzed these two regions and were able to align those regions to other related organisms ( e.g., S. cerevisiae with Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Cryptococcus neoformans, Pneumocystis carinii, Candida albicans, and Mucor racemosus ) and predict a secondary structure that is common for all of these rRNAs (see Figures 3and 6 in [ 52 ] ). While the secondary structures for the fungal 23S-like rRNAs are determined in these regions, the animal rRNAs were only partially solved.

  • Antiretroviral therapy and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) prophylaxis have improved the clinical course and outcome of HIV-infected patients.

  • Pneumocystis carinii causes pneumonia in immunocompromised patients with a high morbidity and mortality rate.
