The ALS gene family of Candida albicans encodes large cell-surface glycoproteins that are implicated in the process of adhesion to host surfaces. ALS genes are also found in other Candida species that are isolated from cases of clinical disease. Genes in the ALS family are differentially regulated by physiologically relevant mechanisms. ALS genes exhibit several levels of variability including strain- and allele-specific size differences for the same gene, strain-specific differences in gene… CONTINUE READING
