Because Candida dubliniensis is closely related to Candida albicans, we tested whether it underwent white-opaque switching and mating and whether white-opaque switching depended on MTL homozygosity and mating depended on switching, as they do in C. albicans. We also tested whether C. dubliniensis could mate with C. albicans. Sequencing revealed that the MTLalpha locus of C. dubliniensis was highly similar to that of C. albicans. Hybridization with the MTLa1, MTLa2, MTLalpha1, and MTLalpha2 open… CONTINUE READING
