Fungal cell adhesion molecules in Candida albicans

Abstract

Adherence of Candida albicans to host tissues is considered a crucial step in the pathogenesis of candidiasis. Using in vitro assays, it was demonstrated that the yeast — mycelium transition was an important phenomenon in the acquisition of adhesive properties. Proteins with MWs of 60, 68, 200 and > 200 kDa seemed to be involved in germ tube adherence to… (More)
