Boric acid is naturally occurring compound containi ng the elements boron, oxygen, and hydrogen (H3BO3) . In nature, the element boron does not exist by itself. Boron is combined with other common elements, such as sodium to make salts like borax and with oxygen to make boric acid. The main cause of vaginal diseases is Yeasts. Yeast is a fungus scientifically referred t o as Candida. The specific type of fungus most commonly responsible for vaginitis is Candida albicans. The Fungal strains used… 

Anti-biofilm activity of two novel, borate based, bioactive glass wound dressings

Based on the present findings, the antibiofilm agents released by borate bioactive glasses may prove effective to eradicate the biofilm infections that prevent healing in patients with chronic wounds.

Antifungal mechanisms supporting boric acid therapy of Candida vaginitis.

Inhibition of oxidative metabolism appears to be a key antifungal mechanism, but inhibition of virulence probably contributes to therapeutic efficacy in vivo.

Critical role of germ tube formation in the pathogenesis of candidal vaginitis

In vivo animal studies revealed that the variant strain was less likely to result in vaginal colonization and infection than the wild-type strain and the other clinical isolates, and infection, when established, was milder, often transient, and with significantly lower titers of cultured vaginal microorganisms obtained by lavage.

The boron requirement and cell wall properties of growing and stationary suspension-cultured chenopodium album L. cells

It is concluded that boron is required to maintain the normal pore structure of the wall matrix and to mechanically stabilize the wall at growth termination.

Boric acid vaginal suppositories: a brief review.

Boric acid vaginal suppositories are not commercially available and, therefore, must be compounded, although other extemporaneous formulations have been developed.

In budding yeast, contraction of the actomyosin ring and formation of the primary septum at cytokinesis depend on each other.

Both chs2 and myo1 mutants show abnormalities in budding pattern and a decrease in the level of certain proteins associated with budding, such as Bud3p, Bud4p and Spa2p, and for the interdependence between actomyosin ring contraction and primary septum formation are discussed.

Cell Wall Assembly in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

An area where functional genomics offers new insights into the integration of cell wall growth and morphogenesis with a polarized secretory system that is under cell cycle and cell type program controls is reviewed.

Boron stimulates yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) growth.

The demonstration of boron-dependent growth stimulation in yeast suggests that Saccharomyces cerevisiae can be used as a model system for the study of intracellular borons trafficking.

The Yeast Actin Cytoskeleton: from Cellular Function to Biochemical Mechanism

This review describes the filamentous actin structures found in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and their physiological functions, and then discusses in detail the specific roles of actin-associated proteins and their biochemical mechanisms of action.
