Immune sensing of Candida albicans requires cooperative recognition of mannans and glucans by lectin and Toll-like receptors.
The fungal pathogen Candida albicans has a multilayered cell wall composed of an outer layer of proteins glycosylated with N- or O-linked mannosyl residues and an inner skeletal layer of beta-glucansExpand

NRG1 represses yeast–hypha morphogenesis and hypha‐specific gene expression in Candida albicans
We have characterized CaNrg1 from Candida albicans, the major fungal pathogen in humans. CaNrg1 contains a zinc finger domain that is conserved in transcriptional regulators from fungi to humans. ItExpand

Niche-specific regulation of central metabolic pathways in a fungal pathogen
To establish an infection, the pathogen Candida albicans must assimilate carbon and grow in its mammalian host. This fungus assimilates six‐carbon compounds via the glycolytic pathway, and two‐carbonExpand

Granulocytes govern the transcriptional response, morphology and proliferation of Candida albicans in human blood
Survival in blood and escape from blood vessels into tissues are essential steps for the yeast Candida albicans to cause systemic infections. To elucidate the influence of blood components on fungalExpand

The Candida albicans CaACE2 gene affects morphogenesis, adherence and virulence
Morphogenesis between yeast and hyphal growth is a characteristic associated with virulence in Candida albicans and involves changes in the cell wall. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the transcriptionExpand

Candida albicans Pmr1p, a Secretory Pathway P-type Ca2+/Mn2+-ATPase, Is Required for Glycosylation and Virulence*
The cell surface of Candida albicans is the immediate point of contact with the host. The outer layer of the cell wall is enriched in highly glycosylated mannoproteins that are implicated in manyExpand

Fungal Chitin Dampens Inflammation through IL-10 Induction Mediated by NOD2 and TLR9 Activation
Chitin is an essential structural polysaccharide of fungal pathogens and parasites, but its role in human immune responses remains largely unknown. It is the second most abundant polysaccharide inExpand

Ectopic Expression of URA3 Can Influence the Virulence Phenotypes and Proteome of Candida albicans but Can Be Overcome by Targeted Reintegration of URA3 at the RPS10 Locus
ABSTRACT Uridine auxotrophy, based on disruption of both URA3 alleles in diploid Candida albicans strain SC5314, has been widely used to select gene deletion mutants created in this fungus byExpand

Outer Chain N-Glycans Are Required for Cell Wall Integrity and Virulence of Candida albicans*
The outer layer of the Candida albicans cell wall is enriched in highly glycosylated mannoproteins that are the immediate point of contact with the host and strongly influence the host-fungalExpand

Niche-Specific Activation of the Oxidative Stress Response by the Pathogenic Fungus Candida albicans
ABSTRACT Candida albicans is a major opportunistic pathogen of humans. The pathogenicity of this fungus depends upon its ability to deal effectively with the host defenses and, in particular, theExpand
