Genetic manipulation of the pathogenic yeast Candida parapsilosis

Abstract

Candida parapsilosis is an important human pathogen, responsible for severe cases of systemic can-didiasis and one of the leading causes of mortality in neonates. In this report, we describe the first system for genetic manipulation of C. parapsilosis. We isolated and subsequently determined DNA sequences of genes encoding galactokinase (CpGALl) and… (More)
