A dual labelling method for measuring uptake of low molecular weight compounds into the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans.

In contrast to other eukaryotic cells the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans is resistant to many structurally unrelated metabolic inhibitors. Reduced permeability due to the cell wall and/or altered plasma membrane composition is thought to be at least partly responsible for this phenomenon. To study the uptake of low molecular weight compounds into C… CONTINUE READING
