The Unappreciated Intracellular Lifestyle of Blastomyces dermatitidis
TLDR
Although advanced B. dermatitidis infection may exhibit extracellular residence in tissue, early lung infection with infectious spores reveals its unappreciated facultative intracellular lifestyle. Expand
Phylogenetic Analysis Reveals a Cryptic Species Blastomyces gilchristii, sp. nov. within the Human Pathogenic Fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis
TLDR
These analyses provide evidence for a genetically divergent clade within Blastomyces dermatitidis, which is used to describe a novel species, blastomyces gilchristii sp. Expand
SREB, a GATA Transcription Factor That Directs Disparate Fates in Blastomyces dermatitidis Including Morphogenesis and Siderophore Biosynthesis
TLDR
This work concludes that SREB functions as a transcription factor that promotes morphogenesis and regulates siderophore biosynthesis, the first gene identified that promotes the conversion from yeast to mold in the dimorphic fungi, and may shed light on environmental persistence of these pathogens.
