Table 1 Nitrite concentration after fungal interaction with activated murine macrophages.

From: Melanin in Fonsecaea pedrosoi: a trap for oxidative radicals

  Nitrite concentration (μM)*
Activated murine macrophages After 24 h After 48 h
Without fungus 20.0 ± 0.70 50.0 ± 0.70
With F. pedrosoi 1.9 ± 0.40 4.0 ± 0.28
With 1 μg/ml of melanin isolated from F. pedrosoi 0.9 ± 0.54 1.1 ± 0.14
With TC-treated F. pedrosoi 36.2 ± 1.25 50.0 ± 3.95
  1. *Mean values ± standard deviation recorded after 3 independent experiments.
  2. Molar concentration of nitrite detected after interaction of F. pedrosoi or melanin from F. pedrosoi with activated murine macrophages for 24 and 48 h.
