The ability of intracellular pathogens to cause infection is related to their capacity to survive and grow inside macrophages or in other cell types. Candida albicans latent virulence is likely to be related to a similar mechanism of avoiding killing by specialized cells and to the resulting ability to grow in such hostile environments. Using a differential display reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction technique, we have identified seven genes induced in C. albicans during macrophage… CONTINUE READING
