Adherence of Candida albicans to human vaginal epithelial cells: inhibition by amino sugars.

Abstract

In vitro adherence of Candida albicans to human vaginal epithelial cells was studied, aimed at identifying the surface components involved in this binding. The inhibitory effect of yeast cell wall components and their constituents on the adherence of yeasts to epithelial cells was tested. Only chitin, its hydrolysate derivative and N-acetylglucosamine, the… (More)
