Candida orthopsilosis and Candida metapsilosis spp. nov. To Replace Candida parapsilosis Groups II and III
ABSTRACT Two new species, Candida orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis, are proposed to replace the existing designations of C. parapsilosis groups II and III, respectively. The species C. parapsilosisExpand
Molecular Phylogenetics of Candida albicans
ABSTRACT We analyzed data on multilocus sequence typing (MLST), ABC typing, mating type-like locus (MAT) status, and antifungal susceptibility for a panel of 1,391 Candida albicans isolates. AlmostExpand
Multilocus Sequence Typing for Differentiation of Strains of Candida tropicalis
ABSTRACT A system is described for typing isolates of the pathogenic fungus Candida tropicalis, based on sequence polymorphisms in fragments of six genes: ICL1, MDR1, SAPT2, SAPT4, XYR1, and ZWF1a.Expand
Population Structure and Properties of Candida albicans, as Determined by Multilocus Sequence Typing
ABSTRACT We submitted a panel of 416 isolates of Candida albicans from separate sources to multilocus sequence typing (MLST). The data generated determined a population structure in which four majorExpand
Collaborative Consensus for Optimized Multilocus Sequence Typing of Candida albicans
ABSTRACT A panel of 86 different Candida albicans isolates was subjected to multilocus sequence typing (MLST) in two laboratories to obtain sequence data for 10 published housekeeping gene fragments.Expand
Candida albicans Strain Maintenance, Replacement, and Microvariation Demonstrated by Multilocus Sequence Typing
ABSTRACT We typed 165 Candida albicans isolates from 44 different sources by multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and ABC typing of rRNA genes and determined their homozygosity or heterozygosity at theExpand
Genotyping of Candida orthopsilosis Clinical Isolates by Amplification Fragment Length Polymorphism Reveals Genetic Diversity among Independent Isolates and Strain Maintenance within Patients
ABSTRACT Candida parapsilosis former groups II and III have recently been established as independent species named C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis, respectively. In this report, 400 isolatesExpand
Multilocus Sequence Typing of the Pathogenic Fungus Aspergillus fumigatus
ABSTRACT A multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme was devised for Aspergillus fumigatus. The system involved sequencing seven gene fragments and was applied to a panel of 100 isolates of A.Expand
Optimization and Validation of Multilocus Sequence Typing for Candida albicans
ABSTRACT Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) was applied to 75 Candida albicans isolates, including 2 that were expected to be identical, 48 that came from diverse geographical and clinical sources,Expand
Differential Requirement of the Transcription Factor Mcm1 for Activation of the Candida albicans Multidrug Efflux Pump MDR1 by Its Regulators Mrr1 and Cap1
ABSTRACT Overexpression of the multidrug efflux pump Mdr1 causes increased fluconazole resistance in the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans. The transcription factors Mrr1 and Cap1 mediate MDR1Expand
