The fungal pathogen Candida albicans is naturally diploid, and current gene disruption strategies require two successive transformations. We describe here a genetic construct (UAU1) for which two copies may be selected. Insertion of UAU1 into one genomic site, after a single transformation, allows selection for segregants with two copies of the insertion.(More)
For some time, gene disruptions in Candida albicans have been made with the hisG-URA3-hisG ('Ura-blaster') cassette, which can be re-used in successive transformations of a single strain after homologous excision of URA3. However, the hisG repeats are too large for efficient PCR amplification of the entire cassette, so it cannot be used for PCR(More)
Patients afflicted with glioblastoma (GBM) have poor survival due to dispersive invasion throughout the brain. Necl-5, a cell surface receptor for vitronectin, is expressed in GBM but not normal brain. In several GBM cell lines Necl-5 promotes migration and invasion but the mechanism is poorly understood. In this study, we show that knockdown of Necl-5 by(More)
Bulk susceptibility variations in a multiphase system such as cultured cells and tissue have two manifestations: a dipolar field component outside the regular heterogenous region which introduces linebroadening, and an isotropic field part which results in a frequency shift. Previous NMR studies have emphasized the utility of magic angle spinning for(More)
Thiazolidinediones, a class of synthetic ligands to the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma, induce terminal adipocyte differentiation of 3T3 F442A cells, and have already been used as alternative therapeutic agents for the treatment of liposarcoma in clinical trials. The biochemical changes occurring in the 3T3 F442A cell line and(More)
