Involvement of heat shock proteins in Candida albicans biofilm formation.

Abstract

Biofilm growth represents one of the most challenging problems associated with Candida infections, largely due to the natural resistance of biofilm to the common antifungal drugs. As elevated expression of heat shock proteins (HSP) promotes Candida yeast-hyphae switch, which is an essential step in biofilm formation, we investigated the expression of hsp… (More)
