Resumo

An effective innate immune recognition of the intracellular protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi is critical for host resistance against Chagas disease, a severe and chronic illness that affects millions of people in Latin America. In this study, we evaluated the participation of nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain (Nod)like receptor proteins in host response to T cruzi infection and found that Nod1-dependent, but not Nod2-dependent, responses are required for host resistance against infection. Bone marrow-derived macrophages from Nod1(-/-) mice showed an impaired induction of NF-kappa B-dependent products in response to infection and failed to restrict T cruzi infection in presence of IFN-gamma. Despite normal cytokine production in the sera, Nod1(-/-) mice were highly susceptible to T cruzi infection, in a similar manner to MyD88(-/-) and NO synthase 2(-/-) mice. These studies indicate that Nod1-dependent responses account for host resistance against T cruzi infection by mechanisms independent of cytokine production.
