    • Candida albicans is a dimorphic fungus that can grow in yeast morphology or hyphal form depending on the surrounding environment. This ubiquitous fungus is present in skin and mucus membranes as a potential pathogen that under opportunistic conditions causes a series of systemic and superficial infections known as candidiasis, moniliasis or simply candidiasis...

    • Candida albicans is an important cause of life-threatening systemic bloodstream infections in immunocompromised patients. In order to cause infections, C. albicans must be able to synthesize the essential metabolite inositol or acquire it from the host. Based on the similarity of C. albicans to Saccharomyces cerevisiae ,i t was predicted that C. albicans may generate inositol de novo, import it from the environment, or both...

    • Candida albicans is a commensal organism that resides on the vaginal mucosa, gastrointestinal tract, and skin of healthy individuals (14). However, this organism is also pathogenic due to its ability to cause disseminated infection in immunocompromised individuals and hospitalized patients (2, 14, 20). A majority of the antifungal drugs currently used to treat candidiasis disrupt the fungal cell membrane by targeting key enzymes in the ergosterol biosynthetic pathway...

    • Candida albicans is a commensal dimorphic yeast of the digestive tract that causes hematogenously disseminated infections in immunocompromised individuals. Endogenous invasive candidiasis develops from C. albicans adhering to the intestinal epithelium. Adherence is mediated by the cell wall surface, a domain composed essentially of mannopyranosyl residues bound to proteins, the N-linked moiety of which comprises sequences of -1,2and -1,2-linked mannose residues...

    • Candida albicans is a human commensal that is also responsible for superficial and systemic infections. Little is known about the carriage of C. albicans in the digestive tract and the genome dynamics that occur during commensalisms of this diploid species. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence, diversity, and genetic relationships among C. albicans isolates recovered during natural colonization of the digestive tract of humans, with emphasis on Crohn's disease patients who produce anti-yeast antibodies and may have altered Candida sp...
