Proteomic analysis of hyperadhesive Candida glabrata clinical isolates reveals a core wall proteome and differential incorporation of adhesins.
 

Author(s): Emilia Gómez-Molero, Albert D de Boer, Henk L Dekker, Ana Moreno-Martínez, Eef A Kraneveld, Ichsan, Neeraj Chauhan, Michael Weig, Johannes J de Soet, Chris G de Koster, Oliver Bader, Piet W J de Groot

Journal: FEMS Yeast Res.. 2015 Dec;15(8):.

 

Attachment to human host tissues or abiotic medical devices is a key step in the development of infections by Candida glabrata. The genome of this pathogenic yeast codes for a large number of adhesins, but proteomic work using reference strains has shown incorporation of only few ...

Urinary Tract Infection with Candida glabrata in a Patient with Spinal Cord Injury.
 

Author(s): Monireh Rahimkhani, Mostafa Saberian, Alireza Mordadi, Sajad Varmazyar, Ali Tavakoli

Journal: Acta Med Iran. 2015 Aug;53(8):516-7.

 

Candida glabrata was thought to be a primarily non-pathogenic organism. However, with the ever-increasing population of immunocompromised individuals, it is considered to be an opportunistic pathogen. Patients with spinal cord injuries often using a long-term urinary catheter and ...

Acquired Flucytosine Resistance during Combination Therapy with Caspofungin and Flucytosine for Candida glabrata Cystitis.
 

Author(s): Caroline Charlier, Carine El Sissy, Sophie Bachelier-Bassi, Anne Scemla, Gilles Quesne, Emilie Sitterlé, Christophe Legendre, Olivier Lortholary, Marie-Elisabeth Bougnoux

Journal:

 

Treatment of Candida glabrata cystitis remains a therapeutic challenge, and an antifungal combination using flucytosine is one option. We describe two patients with refractory C. glabrata cystitis who failed flucytosine combined with caspofungin with early-acquired high-level resistance ...

Evolution of regulatory networks in Candida glabrata: learning to live with the human host.
 

Author(s): Sushmita Roy, Dawn Thompson

Journal: FEMS Yeast Res.. 2015 Dec;15(8):.

 

The opportunistic human fungal pathogen Candida glabrata is second only to C. albicans as the cause of Candida infections and yet is more closely related to Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Recent advances in functional genomics technologies and computational approaches to decipher regulatory ...

Author(s): Hsueh-lui Ho, Ken Haynes

Journal: FEMS Yeast Res.. 2015 Sep;15(6):.

 

In recent years, there has been a noticeable rise in fungal infections related to non-albicans Candida species, including Candida glabrata which has both intrinsic resistance to and commonly acquired resistance to azole antifungals. Phylogenetically, C. glabrata is more closely related ...

Local and regional chromatin silencing in Candida glabrata: consequences for adhesion and the response to stress.
 

Author(s): Alejandro De Las Peñas, Jacqueline Juárez-Cepeda, Eunice López-Fuentes, Marcela Briones-Martín-Del-Campo, Guadalupe Gutiérrez-Escobedo, Irene Castaño

Journal: FEMS Yeast Res.. 2015 Sep;15(6):.

 

Candida glabrata is a fungal pathogen frequently found as a commensal in humans. To colonize and disseminate successfully in the mammalian host, C. glabrata must detect signals within the host and reprogram gene expression to respond appropriately to hostile environmental conditions. ...
