The use of different pathways of MÈ activation according to the infecting Leishmania strain or the degree of parasite virulence could account for these apparently conflicting results (Figure 6). 2. Mechanisms of Leishmania Killing Stimulation of mouse MÈs through IFN- and co-stimulators leads to the induction or the activation of several innate and inducible leishmanicidal mechanisms culminating in the production of ROI by the phagocyte NADPH oxidase phox and the production of RNI by the inducible nitric oxide synthase NOS2.

Donovani, DCs fail to migrate from the marginal zones to the T cell areas known as periarteriolar lymphoid sheaths. In this case, impairment of DC migration is linked to the down regulation of CCR7, a receptor for the lymphoid chemokines CCL19 and CCL21, induced by IL-10 and TNF- abundantly produced during this infection. -C. ANTOINE ET AL. L. , 2003). , 1997; Moll, 2000), as well as IFN-

2000). Although these molecules are in direct contact with the parasites, whether complexes between them and parasite Ags are generated in these organelles is still unknown. , 1998, 1999) indicating that PVs are engaged in the formation of such complexes or at least in their intracellular trafficking. Interestingly, MHC class II molecules, H–2M molecules as well as class II–peptide complexes present in PVs can be internalized by L. mexicana and L. amazonensis. , 1998, 1999). Both amastigotes and intermediate stages in the transformation between promastigotes and amastigotes (from 12 h post-phagocytosis of metacyclic promastigotes) can internalize molecules involved in the class II-restricted Ag presentation.
