Trehalose, a nonreducing disaccharide which accumulates dramatically during stationary phase or under oxidative stress, is well known as a stress protectant in several organisms. Here we investigated the putative correlation of trehalose with Cap1p, which is a basic region-leucine zipper (bZip) transcription factor participating in oxidative stress tolerance in Candida albicans. HPLC-MS analysis showed that trehalose did not accumulate in the cap1/cap1 mutant during stationary phase. When the… CONTINUE READING
