Role of the septin Cdc10 in the virulence of Candida albicans.

The relationship between the morphology and virulence of Candida albicans has aroused interest in the study of the proteins involved in its morphogenesis. We present virulence data for one important element in fungal morphogenesis-septins. We disrupted CaCDC10 and studied the virulence in a mouse infection model and the different steps followed by the… CONTINUE READING
