The dimorphic pathogenic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis can grow as a prototroph for organic sulfur as a mycelial (non-pathogenic) form, but it is unable to assimilate inorganic sulfur as a yeast (pathogenic) form. Temperature and the inability to assimilate inorganic sulfur are the single conditions known to affect P. brasiliensis mycelium-to-yeast (M–Y) dimorphic transition. For a comprehensive evaluation of genes that have their expression modulated during the M–Y transition in… CONTINUE READING
