During infection development in the host, Paracoccidioides spp. faces the deprivation of micronutrients, this induces the remodeling of proteins present in different metabolic pathways. This study attempts to identify membrane proteins and their regulation by zinc in Paracoccidioides lutzii.
In this report, we look at three upcoming clinical studies that will be investigating coccidioidomycosis, its pathogenesis and how treatment for this potentially fatal infection can be improved.
