Abstract

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) results from the interactions of the Aspergillus allergens and immune system of the patients. We studied the gene expression profile in a mouse model of ABPA. Of the 12,000 genes studied, 1,300 genes showed enhanced expression and represent chemokine, cytokine, growth factor, signal transduction, and transmembrane receptor genes as well as genes related to arginine metabolism.
