Evolution of pathogenicity and sexual reproduction in eight Candida genomes
Candida species are the most common cause of opportunistic fungal infection worldwide. Here we report the genome sequences of six Candida species and compare these and related pathogens andExpand

Coordination and Modulation of Locomotion Pattern Generators in Drosophila Larvae: Effects of Altered Biogenic Amine Levels by the Tyramine β Hydroxlyase Mutation
Forward locomotion of Drosophila melanogaster larvae is composed of rhythmic waves of contractions that are thought to be produced by segmentally organized central pattern generators. We present aExpand

"White-opaque transition": a second high-frequency switching system in Candida albicans.
A second high-frequency switching system was identified in selected pathogenic strains in the dimorphic yeast Candida albicans. In the characterized strain WO-1, cells switched heritably, reversibly,Expand

Tyramine and octopamine have opposite effects on the locomotion of Drosophila larvae.
Biogenic amines are believed to play important roles in producing behaviors. Although some biogenic amines have been extensively studied in both vertebrates and invertebrates, little is known aboutExpand

Cutting Edge: Candida albicans Hyphae Formation Triggers Activation of the Nlrp3 Inflammasome1
The proinflammatory cytokine IL-1β plays an important role in antifungal immunity; however, the mechanisms by which fungal pathogens trigger IL-1β secretion are unclear. In this study we show thatExpand

TOS9 Regulates White-Opaque Switching in Candidaalbicans
ABSTRACT In Candida albicans, the a1-α2 complex represses white-opaque switching, as well as mating. Based upon the assumption that the a1-α2 corepressor complex binds to the gene that regulatesExpand

A novel cGMP signalling pathway mediating myosin phosphorylation and chemotaxis in Dictyostelium
Chemotactic stimulation of Dictyostelium cells results in a transient increase in cGMP levels, and transient phosphorylation of myosin II heavy and regulatory light chains. In Dictyostelium, twoExpand

Parity among the randomly amplified polymorphic DNA method, multilocus enzyme electrophoresis, and Southern blot hybridization with the moderately repetitive DNA probe Ca3 for fingerprinting Candida
Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis, multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE), and Southern blot hybridization with moderately repetitive DNA probes have emerged as effectiveExpand

N-Acetylglucosamine Induces White to Opaque Switching, a Mating Prerequisite in Candida albicans
To mate, the fungal pathogen Candida albicans must undergo homozygosis at the mating-type locus and then switch from the white to opaque phenotype. Paradoxically, opaque cells were found to beExpand
