Combine to form a C5 convertase. Runaway complement activation is prevented by binding of Complement Receptor 1 (CR1) and a constitutively active membrane bound Decay Accelerating Factor (DAF, or CD55) which can prevent the complement cascade[51]. In patients with severe dengue, large amounts of C3a have been detected revealing a role for complement in dengue pathogenesis. This finding might be an

Er positive cells were stained with Ki67, they show definitive proliferation. The cells are also found to be 'massively' apoptotic as determined by TUNEL staining. The balance of apoptotic cells with proliferative cells may skew T cell responses toward a crossreactive phenotype. When looking at the specific T-cells involved in secondary infections with DENV1, many of the T-cells show a preference

Ells can increase viral RNA production by over 100-fold making dendritic cells potent components in dengue pathogenesis[20]. Infected dendritic cells also contribute to vascular leak through the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). MMP-2, MMP-13, and MMP-9 were all dramatically increased in immature dendritic cells infected with DENV2. As a result cell-cell adhesion in cells co-cultured

Fic T-cell response. The mechanism for this is unknown but given the intimacy between DCs and T-cells this represents a potentially productive field of research.The role of T cells in a dengue infectionThere is a clear consensus in the literature about activation of cross-reactive memory T-cells, independent of antibody enhancement, being a pivotal moment in the disease process. As compelling as A

Hway begins with the formation of an antibody C1q complex on the surface of a pathogen or pathogen infected cell. This complex, in turn, activates C2 via serine proteases and is itself also a serine protease[49]. The protein C2a combines with newly cleaved protein C4a to generate a C3 convertase, C2aC4b. C3b forms the central protein complex of the complement system either by binding to complement
