In budding yeast, Tup1 and Ssn6/Cyc8 form a corepressor that regulates a large number of genes. This Tup1-Ssn6 corepressor appears to be conserved from yeast to man. In the pathogenic fungus Candida albicans, Tup1 regulates cellular morphogenesis, phenotypic switching, and metabolism, but the role of Ssn6 remains unclear. We show that there are clear differences in the morphological and invasive phenotypes of C. albicans ssn6 and tup1 mutants. Unlike Tup1, Ssn6 depletion promoted morphological… CONTINUE READING
