Abstract. Extracellular lipolytic activity enabled the human pathogen Candida albicans to grow on lipids as the sole source of carbon. Nine new members of a lipase gene family (LIP2–LIP10) with high similarities to the recently cloned lipase gene LIP1 were cloned and characterised. The ORFs of all ten lipase genes are between 1281 and 1416 bp long and encode highly similar proteins with up to 80% identical amino acid sequences. Each deduced lipase sequence has conserved lipase motifs, four… Expand
Identification of a triacylglycerol lipase gene family in Candida deformans: molecular cloning and functional expression
TLDR
Three members of a lipase gene family were cloned and characterized and it was confirmed that the cloned genes encoded functional lipases, which are very similar to lipases from the related species Yarrowia lipolytica. Expand
A Novel Cold-Active Lipase from Candida albicans: Cloning, Expression and Characterization of the Recombinant Enzyme
TLDR
A novel lipase gene lip5 from the yeast Candida albicans was cloned and sequenced, which has double mutations that revert 154 and 293 to serine residues, showed good lipase activity, and was overexpressed and purified by (NH4)2SO4 precipitation and ion-exchange chromatography. Expand
An extracellular lipase from the dimorphic yeast Arxula adeninivorans: molecular cloning of the ALIP1 gene and characterization of the purified recombinant enzyme
TLDR
In media supplemented with Tween 20, induction of the ALIP1 gene and accumulation of the encoded lipase in the medium is observed, thus demonstrating gene regulation by lipophilic compounds. Expand
The lipase/acyltransferase from Candida parapsilosis: molecular cloning and characterization of purified recombinant enzymes.
TLDR
The cloning and the overexpression of the gene coding for this enzyme were described and homology investigations showed that CpLIP2 has similarities principally with 11 lipases produced by C. albicans and the lipase A from Candida antarctica but not with the other lipases sequenced so far. Expand
Cloning, characterization and expression of the extracellular lipase gene from Aureobasidium pullulans HN2-3 isolated from sea saltern
TLDR
The extracellular lipase structural gene was isolated from cDNA of Aureobasidium pullulans HN2-3 by using SMARTTM RACE cDNA amplification kit and the protein sequence deduced contained the lipase consensus sequence and three conserved putative N-glycosylation sites. Expand
A novel lipase/acyltransferase from the yeast Candida albicans: expression and characterisation of the recombinant enzyme
TLDR
A gene encoding an extracellular lipase (CaLIP4) from Candida albicans was successfully expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae after mutagenesis of its unusual CUG serine codon into a universal one and behaved as a true lipase, displaying activity towards insoluble triglycerides and having no activity in the presence of short-chain fatty acid esters and phosphatidylcholine. Expand
Cloning and sequence analysis of complete gene encoding an alkaline lipase from Penicillium cyclopium
TLDR
PG37 Lip shows only 32%, 30, 28% and 26% identity with lipases of Aspergillus parasiticus, Penicillium camembertii, Thermomyces lanuginosus and Rhizomucor miehei, respectively, and it was predicted that the main secondary structures of PG37 Lip are α-helix and random coil. Expand
Cloning, expression and characterization of a new lipase from Yarrowia lipolytica
TLDR
The resulting lipase exhibited the highest activity towards p-NP-decanoate at pH 7 and 35°C and had a lower optimal temperature and pH compared to other Y. lipolytica lipases. Expand
MfLIP1, a gene encoding an extracellular lipase of the lipid-dependent fungus Malassezia furfur.
TLDR
This is the first molecular description of a secreted lipase from M. furfur, and shows high sequence similarity to other known extracellular lipases, but is not a member of a lipase gene family in M.furfur. Expand
Optimal Production and Biochemical Properties of a Lipase from Candida albicans
TLDR
A lipase gene from Candida albicans (CaLIP10) was cloned and two non-unusual CUG serine codons were mutated into universal codons, and its expression in Pichia pastoris performed optimally, as shown by response surface methodology. Expand

Cloning and characterization of a gene (LIP1) which encodes a lipase from the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans.
TLDR
The data suggest that C. albicans, in addition to phospholipases, also has lipases, and that a lipase gene(s) may be present inCandida parapsilosis, Candida tropicalis and Candida krusei, but not in Candida pseudotropicalis,candida glabrata or S. cerevisiae. Expand
Cloning and regulated expression of the Candida albicans phospholipase B (PLB1) gene.
TLDR
Results suggest that expression of the C. albicans PLB1 gene is regulated as a function of morphogenic transition, since PLB 1 expression was the highest in tup1 delta mutants and did not vary in response to environmental stimuli. Expand
Molecular cloning of a second phospholipase B gene, caPLB2 from Candida albicans.
TLDR
Cloning the phospholipase B gene from C. albicans resulted in two similar but different cDNA fragments, one of which encoded a putative protein with 608 amino acids and contained a potential signal peptide sequence and aPutative catalytic region, which are found in phospholIPase B from other fungi. Expand
Molecular cloning of a second phospholipase B gene, caPLB2 from Candida albicans.
TLDR
The present study attempted to clone phospholipase B gene from C. albicans by RT-PCR analysis with degenerate primers based on conserved regions of phospholIPase B from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Penicillium notatum and Torulaspora delbrueckii and obtained two similar but different cDNA fragments. Expand
Differential regulation of SAP8 and SAP9, which encode two new members of the secreted aspartic proteinase family in Candida albicans.
TLDR
Although the SAP9 gene product has not yet been isolated from cultures of C. albicans, transcripts of SAP9 were observed preferentially in later growth phases when SAP8 expression had decreased, and the N-terminal amino acid sequence deduced from SAP8 downstream of a Kex2p-like cleavage site corresponds to that of the 41 kDa Sap isolated and characterized previously. Expand
Expression of seven members of the gene family encoding secretory aspartyl proteinases in Candida albicans
TLDR
The in vitro expression of seven known members of the SAP gene family in a range of strains and serotypes is studied by Northern analysis to suggest that the various members of this family may have distinct roles in the colonization and invasion of the host. Expand
Cloning and Disruption of caPLB1, a Phospholipase B Gene Involved in the Pathogenicity of Candida albicans *
TLDR
Although deletion of caPLB1 did not produce any detectable effects on candidal adherence to human endothelial or epithelial cells, the ability of the caplb1 null mutant to penetrate host cells was dramatically reduced, suggesting phospholipase B may well contribute to the pathogenicity of C. albicans by abetting the fungus in damaging and traversing host cell membranes, processes which likely increase the rapidity of disseminated infection.

Analysis of secreted aspartic proteinases from Candida albicans: purification and characterization of individual Sap1, Sap2 and Sap3 isoenzymes.
TLDR
Analysis of all three purified proteins by gel electrophoresis, immunoblotting and proteinase assays which were designed to evaluate pH dependence, thermal stability and substrate specificity revealed similar but distinct properties for each isoenzyme. Expand
Molecular cloning and characterization of a Candida albicans gene (EFB1) coding for the elongation factor EF-1β

Transcription of the gene for a pepsinogen, PEP1, is regulated by white-opaque switching in Candida albicans.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that transcription of the Op1a gene is under the rigid control of switching in strain WO-1, and shows that the product of this gene is a member of the family of pepsinogens, which possess a hydrophobic leader sequence for secretion and two catalytic aspartate domains. Expand
