The morphological plasticity of Candida albicans is an important determinant of pathogenicity, and nonfilamentous mutants are avirulent. HWP1, a hypha-specific gene, was identified in a genetic… Continue Reading
The Candida albicans gene HWP1 encodes a surface protein that is required for normal hyphal development in vitro. We used mutants lacking one or both alleles of HWP1 to investigate the role of this… Continue Reading
HWP1 encodes an adhesin of Candida albicans and has been implicated in filamentation and virulence. URA3, an often-used transformation selection marker, is apparently incorrectly expressed when… Continue Reading
