Systematic name M5167
Brief description Genes down-regulated in comparison of macrophages versus macrophages exposed to B. malayi (50 worms/well).
Full description or abstract Monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DC) and macrophages (M?) generated in vitro from the same individual blood donors were exposed to five different pathogens, and gene expression profiles were assessed by microarray analysis. Responses to Mycobacterium tuberculosis and to phylogenetically distinct protozoan (Leishmania major, L. donovani, Toxoplasma gondii) and helminth (Brugia malayi) parasites were examined, each of which produces chronic infections in humans yet vary considerably in the nature of the immune responses they trigger.

We need your help: Update on GSEA/MSigDB funding support

Last November we submitted a proposal to NCI's Information Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program for the continued funding of GSEA and MSigDB. Unfortunately, our proposal was not funded in this round, but we were encouraged to resubmit for the next one. This funding is critical for our continuing support and enhancement of the GSEA-MSigDB resource.

For our original submission many of you sent us emails of support, an important requirement for these grants. We now ask for your help again. We would greatly appreciate a short email message from you describing how the resource has been of value to your work and any concerns you may have about its continued availability.

Please send us your message of support to on or before Monday June 5, 2023.

Thanks in advance for your help and support.
The GSEA/MSigDB Team.
