  • The yeast Candida albicans is part of the microflora in most healthy people, but can become a pathogen when host defenses are compromised. The phenotypic plasticity of C. albicans, which includes switching between different morphologies, contributes to its ability to colonize and infect virtually all body locations. A particularly fascinating developmental program is white-opaque switching, a reversible transition between the normal yeast morphology (white) and an elongated cell type (opaque… CONTINUE READING
