Abstract: We present the latest results of a theoretical project aimed at investigating the properties of thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) stars in different host systems. For this purpose, we have recently calculated calibrated synthetic TP-AGB tracks — covering a wide range of metallicities (0.0001 = Z = 0.03) up to the complete ejection of the envelope by stellar winds (Marigo Girardi 2007) — and used them to generate new sets of stellar isochrones (Marigo et al. 2008). The latter are converted to about 25 different photometric systems, including the mid-infrared filters of Spitzer and AKARI as the effect of circumstellar dust from AGB stars is taken into account. First comparisons with AGB data in the MC field and stellar clusters are discussed.
