Candida albicans has three genes encoding chitin synthase enzymes. In wild-type strains, the expression of CHS2 and CHS3 peaked 1-2 h after the induction of hyphal growth, whilst mRNA levels in a non-germinative strain, CA2, remained low under the same conditions. CHS1 gene expression did not peak during germ tube formation but remained at low levels in(More)
Several brominated tyrosine derived compounds, psammaplins A (1), K (2) and L (3) as well as bisaprasin (4) were isolated from the Fijian marine sponge Aplysinella rhax during a bioassay guided isolation protocol. Their structures were determined using NMR and MS techniques. Psammaplin A was found to moderately inhibit chitinase B from Serratia marcescens,(More)
Candida albicans HSP90 sequences were isolated by screening cDNA and genomic libraries with a probe derived from the Saccharomyces cerevisiae homolog, HSP82, which encodes a member of the heat shock protein 90 family of molecular chaperones. Identical sequences were obtained for the 2,197-bp overlap of the cDNA and gene sequences, which were derived from C.(More)
A cDNA library was made with mRNA from Candida albicans grown under conditions favoring the hyphal form. The library was screened for sequences that encode immunogenic proteins by using pooled sera from five patients with oral candidiasis and five uninfected patients. Most of these patients were human immunodeficiency virus positive. From 40,000 cDNA clones(More)
In this paper we examine the phenomenon of independent invention in Italy during the Liberal Age (1861-1913).We make use of a new dataset comprising all patents granted in Italy in five benchmark years: 1864-65, 1881, 1891, 1902 and 1911. We carry out the following exercises. First we examine the shares of independent, corporate and foreign inventions and(More)
