N-acetylglucosamine is a morphogenic effector in the human pathogenic yeast Candida albicans. Depending on temperature, N-acetylglucosamine induces yeast-mycelial conversion or chlamydospore formation. N-acetylglucosamine is also a carbon source for growth in the yeast form. Germ-tube formation, i.e. the intermediary of yeast-mycelial conversion, is induced at temperatures in excess of 33 degrees C; at lower temperatures the yeast or the pseudomycelial form of the organism predominates. 2… CONTINUE READING
