4. 1. The Different Pathways Leading to the Development of Leishmanicidal Properties Despite the fact that parasites have developed strategies to down regulate signalling pathways leading to enhancement of MÈ leishmanicidal properties, it is well known that in L. major-resistant mice, which control the parasite multiplication after a short period of parasite amplification, MÈs acquire an activated microbicidal LEISHMANIA SPP. 33 phenotype. How this phenotype is acquired during Leishmania infection is, however, not very well understood.

In fact, the only product abundantly secreted by amastigotes of some Leishmania species (L. mexicana, L. amazonensis) is a poorly immunogenic proteophosphoglycan LEISHMANIA SPP. 31 activation/reactivation of parasite-specific T cells. Several studies using mouse or dog MÈs as host cells have demonstrated that L. donovani or L. , 1999). , 1994). These findings suggest that infected MÈs are probably not involved in the activation of naive Leishmania-specific T cells, in line with the fact that L.

Finally, recent data show that after phagocytosis of L. , 2003a). Leishmania, and especially its amastigote stage, have evolved mechanisms to cope with the harmful conditions in PVs. Indeed, these microorganisms are acidophilic and resistant to acid hydrolases, a property that, until recently, had been linked to the strong expression of low molecular weight glycoinositolphospholipids at this parasite stage. However, construction of L. mexicana and L. , 2003). On the other hand, PVs represent a good source of nutrients (Burchmore and Barrett, 2001) where the parasites have access to the various molecules internalized by the host cells, as well as to the metabolites derived from these molecules by the action of the lysosomal hydrolases.
