Carbon Catabolite Control in Candida albicans: New Wrinkles in Metabolism

  title={Carbon Catabolite Control in Candida albicans: New Wrinkles in Metabolism},
  author={Michael C Lorenz},
Most microorganisms maintain strict control of nutrient assimilation pathways to ensure that they preferentially use compounds that generate the most energy or are most efficiently catabolized. In doing so, they avoid potentially inefficient conflicts between parallel catabolic and metabolic pathways. The regulation of carbon source utilization in a wide array of bacterial and fungal species involves both transcriptional and posttranscriptional mechanisms, and while the details can vary… CONTINUE READING
