2004a, b), which through the production of L-ornithine from L-arginine, participates in parasite expansion. Indeed, L-ornithine is used for the biosynthesis of polyamines that are key compounds for parasite growth (Figure 7). 5. THE DCS AS CELLS THAT CAN ALSO SHELTER LEISHMANIA SPP. 1. -C. ANTOINE ET AL.

Major stationary phase promastigotes to reactivate already primed T cells but whether this effect is due to an alteration of the Ag presentation process has not been investigated (Theodos and Titus, 1993). In any case, these results suggest that vector saliva could synergize with parasite strategies to enhance parasite infectivity. 4. Expression of Co-stimulatory Molecules by Infected MÈs The data discussed above indicate that the sensu stricto class IIrestricted Ag presentation process is at least partially altered in Leishmania-infected MÈs and their ability to stimulate T cells is compromised.

Likewise, the so-called deactivating cytokines IL-10, TGF- and prostaglandin E2 too induce L-arginase I synthesis (for a review see Gordon, 2003). It has been demonstrated that under this cytokinic environment, L. major- and L. , 2004a, b), which through the production of L-ornithine from L-arginine, participates in parasite expansion. Indeed, L-ornithine is used for the biosynthesis of polyamines that are key compounds for parasite growth (Figure 7). 5. THE DCS AS CELLS THAT CAN ALSO SHELTER LEISHMANIA SPP.
