Could Candida Overgrowth Be Involved in the Pathophysiology of Autism?

It was showed that the results of most studies do not fully support the hypothesis that Candida overgrowth is correlated with gastrointestinal problems and contributes to autism behavioral symptoms occurrence, and more reliable and well-designed research is certainly required.



L-Arabinosuria: a new defect in human pentose metabolism.

Urined-Arabinitol/l-Arabinitol Ratio in Diagnosis of Invasive Candidiasis in Newborn Infants

Urine DA/LA ratio determination is a rapid test and can be used for newborns and is possibly more sensitive than fungal blood cultures in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis and can also been used for monitoring the effect of antifungal treatment.

Laboratory aids in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis

Application of the techniques of molecular biology for typing and detection of fungal pathogens has expanded the understanding of candidal infections and may offer the most sensitive and specific means of diagnosing invasive candidiasis.

Increased urinary excretion of analogs of Krebs cycle metabolites and arabinose in two brothers with autistic features.

A marked increase in analogs of Krebs cycle metabolites was found in the urine of two brothers with autistic features, including citramalic, tartaric, and 3-oxoglutaric acids and compounds tentatively identified as a citric acid analog.

Fermentation of carbohydrate in rat ileal excreta is enhanced with cecal inocula compared with fecal inocula.

It is concluded that using cecal microflora as the inoculum source provides a more accurate index of fermentation during transit through the large bowel and that noncellulosic and storage polysaccharides of the plant cell wall are utilized before cellulose.

Comparison of the toxicity of fluconazole and other azole antifungal drugs to murine and human granulocyte-macrophage progenitor cells in vitro.

There was a close correlation between the murine and human log IC50 values of the drugs, suggesting that cultures of murine bone marrow may be suitable to predict the in-vitro toxicity of azole antifungals to human cfu-gm.

Ileal digestibility and urinary excretion of D-xylose and L-arabinose in ileostomized adult roosters.

An experiment with ileostomized adult roosters was conducted to determine the ileal digestibility and urinary excretion of D-xylose and L-arabinose and it was found that both pentose sugars were partly excreted in the urine.

The missing link in the fungal L-arabinose catabolic pathway, identification of the L-xylulose reductase gene.

Overexpression of all enzymes of the L-arabinose pathway in S. Cerevisiae led to growth of S. cerevisiae on L-Arabinose, and it was shown that the pathway is active in a heterologous host.

Arabinose fermentation by Lactobacillus plantarum in sourdough with added pentosans and αα‐L‐arabinofuranosidase: a tool to increase the production of acetic acid

Sixty‐five strains of obligately and facultatively heterofermentative sourdough lactic acid bacteria were screened for their capacity to grow optimally in the presence of arabinose, ribose and xylose as carbon sources, showing higher growth rate, cell yield, acidification rate and production of acetic acid when some pentoses instead of maltose were added to the SDB medium.

A Modified Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strain That Consumes l-Arabinose and Produces Ethanol

The engineering of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain able to utilize the pentose sugar l-arabinose for growth and to ferment it to ethanol is described, which should be useful for efficient fermentation of hexoses and pentoses in cellulosic biomass hydrolysates.
