Identification of Candida glabrata genes involved in pH modulation and modification of the phagosomal environment in macrophages.
 

Author(s): Lydia Kasper, Katja Seider, Franziska Gerwien, Stefanie Allert, Sascha Brunke, Tobias Schwarzm├╝ller, Lauren Ames, Cristina Zubiria-Barrera, Michael K Mansour, Ulrike Becken, Dagmar Barz, Jatin M Vyas, Norbert Reiling, Albert Haas, Ken Haynes, Karl Kuchler, Bernhard Hube

Journal:

 

Candida glabrata currently ranks as the second most frequent cause of invasive candidiasis. Our previous work has shown that C. glabrata is adapted to intracellular survival in macrophages and replicates within non-acidified late endosomal-stage phagosomes. In contrast, heat killed ...

Isolation of cholesterol-dependent, multidrug-resistant Candida glabrata strains from blood cultures of a candidemia patient in Kuwait.
 

Author(s): Ziauddin Khan, Suhail Ahmad, Leena Joseph, Khaled Al-Obaid

Journal:

 

Candida glabrata has emerged as an important human pathogen associated with systemic and mucosal infections. Here, we describe isolation of two cholesterol-dependent Candida glabrata strains from a candidemia patient which failed to grow on the media devoid of a cholesterol source.

Phenotypic analysis of a family of transcriptional regulators, the zinc cluster proteins, in the human fungal pathogen Candida glabrata.
 

Author(s): Natalia Klimova, Ralph Yeung, Nadezda Kachurina, Bernard Turcotte

Journal:

 

Candida glabrata is the second most important human fungal pathogen. Despite its formal name, C. glabrata is in fact more closely related to the nonpathogenic budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. However, less is known about the biology of this pathogen. Zinc cluster proteins form ...

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 Sch├╝ller

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 ...
