The human fungal opportunistic pathogen Candida albicans resides in the human gut, genitourinary tract and on the skin. The majority of infections caused by C. albicans are biofilm-related. In the first part of this review, we discuss new insights into C. albicans biofilm characteristics, concentrating on the extracellular matrix, phenotypic switching,(More)
We performed a whole-transcriptome analysis of miconazole-treated Candida albicans biofilms, using RNA-sequencing. Our aim was to identify molecular pathways employed by biofilm cells of this pathogen to resist action of the commonly used antifungal miconazole. As expected, genes involved in sterol biosynthesis and genes encoding drug efflux pumps were(More)
