Heterogeneity in the plasma levels of two acute-phase proteins in mice from inbred strains infected with Trypanosoma cruzi



Heterogeneity in the plasma levels of two acute-phase proteins in mice from inbred strains infected with Trypanosoma cruzi



Parasitology Research 80(5): 439-441



We analyzed the variations observed in the plasma levels of both alpha-macroglobulins (AM) and serum amyloid P (SAP) in mice from three different inbred strains (C3H, Balb/C and C57black/6) acutely infected with Trypanosoma cruzi. SAP levels increased in C57black/6 and Balb/C mice but not C3H mice. AM levels increased in all C3H mice but not in C57black/6 mice and rose slightly in only 43% of the Balb/C mice. AM and SAP levels are differently modulated in patterns that may be strain-determined.
