The host defense mechanisms include harnessing the functions of macrophages, dendritic cells, T cells, B cells, Th1, Th2 & Th17 responses, antibody, and complement as well as the engagement of such cells through recognition receptors such as TLRs, Dectin-1, complement, mannose & other lectin receptors, scavenger receptors, IL-1 receptor, E-cadherein, EGFR-HER2, Gp96, CD14, CD44, and CDw17. For example, dectin-1 is required for the upregulation of miR155 in macrophages challenged with Candida albicans [6] and NLRP3 inflammasome activation by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is linked to a protective response against this pathogen [7].
