Adherence of yeasts to other microorganisms and epithelial cell surfaces is important in their colonization. Comparative studies based on the coaggregation of Candida dubliniensis versus Candida albicans with Fusobacterium nucleatum and other oral bacteria suggested differences in the surfaces of these yeasts. Transmission electron microscopy was used to test the hypothesis that there are morphologic variations in the cell surface of these two species. C. dubliniensis type strain CD36 and C… CONTINUE READING
