Immune evasion, stress resistance, and efficient nutrient acquisition are crucial for intracellular survival of Candida glabrata within macrophages.
 

Author(s): Katja Seider, Franziska Gerwien, Lydia Kasper, Stefanie Allert, Sascha Brunke, Nadja Jablonowski, Tobias Schwarzmüller, Dagmar Barz, Steffen Rupp, Karl Kuchler, Bernhard Hube

Journal: Eukaryotic Cell. 2014 Jan;13(1):170-83.

 

Candida glabrata is both a human fungal commensal and an opportunistic pathogen which can withstand activities of the immune system. For example, C. glabrata can survive phagocytosis and replicates within macrophages. However, the mechanisms underlying intracellular survival remain ...

Anidulafungin and micafungin MIC breakpoints are superior to that of caspofungin for identifying FKS mutant Candida glabrata strains and Echinocandin resistance.
 

Author(s): Ryan K Shields, M Hong Nguyen, Ellen G Press, Cassaundra L Updike, Cornelius J Clancy

Journal: Antimicrob. Agents Chemother.. 2013 Dec;57(12):6361-5.

 

By CLSI interpretive criteria, anidulafungin and micafungin MICs determined by various methods were sensitive (60 to 70%) and highly specific (94 to 100%) for identifying FKS mutations among 120 Candida glabrata isolates. Anidulafungin and micafungin breakpoints were more specific ...

A mouse model for Candida glabrata hematogenous disseminated infection starting from the gut: evaluation of strains with different adhesion properties.
 

Author(s): Ralitsa Atanasova, Adela Angoulvant, Maurel Tefit, Frédérick Gay, Juliette Guitard, Dominique Mazier, Cécile Fairhead, Christophe Hennequin

Journal:

 

Adhesion to digestive mucosa is considered a crucial first step in the pathogenicity of invasive Candida infections. Candida glabrata disseminated infections predominantly start from the gut. A mouse model of disseminated infection starting from the gut was set up. Hematogenous dissemination ...

Two unlike cousins: Candida albicans and C. glabrata infection strategies.
 

Author(s): Sascha Brunke, Bernhard Hube

Journal: Cell. Microbiol.. 2013 May;15(5):701-8.

 

Candida albicans and C. glabrata are the two most common pathogenic yeasts of humans, yet they are phylogenetically, genetically and phenotypically very different. In this review, we compare and contrast the strategies of C. albicans and C. glabrata to attach to and invade into the ...

Stress response in Candida glabrata: pieces of a fragmented picture.
 

Author(s): Zeljkica Jandric, Christoph Schüller

Journal: Future Microbiol. 2011 Dec;6(12):1475-84.

 

Candida glabrata is closely related to yeast but obviously adapted to human commensalism. Communication with the environment is important to adjust allocation of resources between protection and proliferation in order to adapt to different situations in and outside of the host. Gene ...

Candida glabrata: review of epidemiology, pathogenesis, and clinical disease with comparison to C. albicans.
 

Author(s): P L Fidel, J A Vazquez, J D Sobel

Journal: Clin. Microbiol. Rev.. 1999 Jan;12(1):80-96.

 

Until recently, Candida glabrata was considered a relatively nonpathogenic commensal fungal organism of human mucosal tissues. However, with the increased use of immunosuppressive agents, mucosal and systemic infections caused by C. glabrata have increased significantly, especially ...
