The lipopeptides pseudofactin II and surfactin effectively decrease Candida albicans adhesion and hydrophobicity

A serious problem for humans is the propensity of Candida albicans to adhere to various surfaces and its ability to form biofilms. Surfactants or biosurfactants can affect the cell surfaces of microorganisms and block their adhesion to different substrates. This study investigated adhesion of C. albicans strains differing in cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH… CONTINUE READING
