Candida albicans and some other pathogenic Candida species, when grown in a medium containing a protein as a sole source of nitrogen, secrete an acid proteinase. Culture supernatants were assayed for proteinase activity, and were also analysed by Western blotting with antibodies raised and affinity-purified against proteinase of C. albicans. Proteinases secreted by C. tropicalis and C. parapsilosis were antigenically related to that of C. albicans, but had different molecular masses. The… CONTINUE READING
