The biosynthesis of melanin has been linked with virulence in diverse pathogenic fungi. Penicillium marneffei, a dimorphic fungus, is capable of melanization in both mycelial and yeast phases, and the pigment may be produced during infection to protect the fungus from the host immune system. To investigate the impact of yeast morphological transformation on(More)
Talaromyces (Penicillium) marneffei is an emerging opportunistic pathogen associated with HIV infection, particularly in Southeast Asia and southern China. The rapid uptake and killing of T. marneffei conidia by phagocytic cells along with the effective induction of an inflammatory response by the host is essential for disease control. T. marneffei produces(More)
