The blastospores of Candida albicans form filaments or “germ tubes” within two to three hours when incubated at 37° C in the presence of serum or plasma derived from humans and animals (1-4). The germination of C. albicans within 24 hours in serum was observed as early as 1954 (5, 6). The minimum time, however, required for the development of the filaments was not emphasized. The incorporation of serum or whole blood into solid culture media has also been found to enhance the formation of… Expand
Autoregulation of germ tube formation by Candida albicans
TLDR
Because of the ability of the factor to influence C. albicans morphology, the substance produced was designated morphogenic autoregulatory substance and could not be recovered from either Cryptococcus laurentii or Candida parapsilosis. Expand
THE RELATIONSHIP OF SERUM TRANSFERRIN AND IRON TO THE RAPID FORMATION OF GERM TUBES BY CANDIDA ALBICANS.
The yeast cells of Candida albicans readily form filaments or “germ tubes” within two to three hours when incubated at 37° C. in such media as serum or plasma derived from humans and animals, humanExpand
The formation of germ tubes by Candida albicans in various peptone media.
TLDR
The tendency to germ tube formation was greater in 1% than in 0·5% bactopeptone, and in both of these media it was greater than in other concentrations of bactopetone or whole sheep serum. Expand
Growth and phase conversion of Candida albicans in Dubos medium.
The quantitative proportions of yeast (Y) and mycelial (M) cell mass in Candida albicans cultures i na defined substrate (Dubos medium) were studied by a specially developed filtration method sinceExpand
The in vitro interactions of candida albicans with nonspecific serum proteins
TLDR
Although opsonization and phagocytosis probably play a vital role in the in vivo defenses against invading Candida, the contribution of these other interactions to host resistance remain unknown. Expand
In Vitro Inhibition of Candidal Growth by Human Serum
TLDR
A serum factor lethal for Candida albicans which appeared to differ from Roth's factor in respect to specificity and apparent physical characteristics was described, and both appeared to be distinct from classical serum antibody. Expand
Comparison of Germ Tube Production By Candida Albicans In Various Media
TLDR
It is shown that sterile horse serum is best medium for germ tube production of C.albicans and it can replace human serum which has its disadvantage in being bio hazardous with false negative reporting. Expand
Synthesis of nueic acids and proteins in the dimorphic forms of Candida albicans.
TLDR
Electrophoretic analysis of the water soluble proteins from budding and filament producing cells revealed that C. albicans grows in tissue culture medium 199 buds when incubated at 25°C but produces filaments when incubation at 37°C. Expand
Segregation of proteinase-negative mutants from heterozygous Candida albicans.
TLDR
It was found that in liquid medium containing bovine serum albumin (BSA) as the sole nitrogen source, the sensitivity of proteinase detection was considerably greater than when assayed on BSA agar at 37 degrees C, which is due, in part, to temperature sensitivity ofproteinase induction. Expand
Mechanisms of aggregation accompanying morphogenesis in Candida albicans.
TLDR
Results suggest that divalent cation crossbridging between opposing anionic sites and protein interactions act synergistically to promote aggregation of C. albicans germ tube cells. Expand

Rapid identification of Candida albicans by filamentation on serum and serum substitutes.
TLDR
It was noted that C. albicans spores produce short germ-tubes within 90 minutes on human serum at 37 to 42 and that of other Candida species, only C. stellatoidea, whose species status is doubtful, produced these characteristic short germtubes. Expand

The identification of Candida albicans within two hours by the use of an egg white slide preparation
TLDR
It was found that raw egg white also induces the R.B. effect, which is introduced for a phenomenon exclusively characteristic of C. albicans and C. stellatoidea first observed by Reynolds and Braude in serum and other protein solutions. Expand
Metabolic studies of the tissue phase of Candida albicans induced in vitro.
TLDR
The tissue morphology of Candida albicans, characterized by ovoid thinwalled blastospores with small vacuoles and by mycelia, was reproduced in vitro on dialysates of sera and plasmas without appreciably changing the pH. Expand
Studies of the invasive, mycelial form of Candida albicans.
TLDR
By fluorescent microscopy, and by special staining methods, it was shown that ribo-nucleic acid is present throughout the entire length of C. albicans hyphae and is concentrated at the septa and hyphal tip, which supports the view that C.Albicans forms true mycelium and suggests that the mycelial formation may help the fungus to inva...

TLDR
A morphological alteration of yeast-like cells of C. albicans and C. stella-toidea has been shown to occur within 1 hour after injection into the subcutaneous tissues of mice, suggesting a significant role for these morphologically altered organisms in the pathogenesis of experimental moniliasis in the mouse.

A Substance in Blood Lethal for Candida albicans
TLDR
It was found that Candida tropicalis survived in whole human blood but Candida albicans did not and the serum was considered lethal for Candida if fungal census was reduced at least 10-fold at the 6- or 24-h periods when compared with the 0-h count. Expand

Inhibition of growth of pathogenic yeasts by human serum.
TLDR
The humoral mechanisms of natural resistance to pathogenic fungi have been the subject of increased study in recent years and serum possesses a high capacity to inhibit the growth and reproduction of this pathogenic yeast in a medium which alone supports luxuriant growth. Expand
