Phenotypic switching and filamentation in Candida glabrata. (1/351)

Candida glabrata switches spontaneously, reversibly and at high frequency among the following four phenotypes distinguishable by graded colony colouration on CuSO(4)-containing agar: white (Wh), light brown (LB), dark brown (DB) and very dark brown (vDB). These phenotypes also differ in a graded fashion in the level of expression of the metallothionein gene MTII (WhvDB), the frequency of switching (Wh>LB>DB>vDB) and colouration on phloxine B-containing agar (Wh>LB>DB>vDB). Switching among the four graded phenotypes is referred to as 'the core switching system'. An additional switch phenotype, 'irregular wrinkle' (IWr), has been identified, which exhibits a highly wrinkled colony morphology. The characteristics of IWr suggest that switching to and from this phenotype represents a second high-frequency switching system. A microscopic analysis revealed that during the first 3 days of colony development, cells in the centres of Wh, LB, DB and vDB colonies expressed almost exclusively the budding yeast phenotype. After 3 days, however, pseudohyphae and cells extending tubes accumulated, so that by 7 days the proportions of these two cellular phenotypes reached 40-50% and 10-20%, respectively. In contrast, IWr colonies were composed almost exclusively of pseudohyphae through the first 6 days of colony development. After 6 days, IWr colonies began to accumulate both budding yeast cells and tubes. The tubes formed by C. glabrata reached lengths of up to six cell diameters, but the tubes did not represent traditional compartmentalized hyphae. Tube growth ended when the tube tip expanded to form a bud. Tubes then functioned as corridors for daughter nucleus migration to the apical bud, and were ultimately left uncompartmentalized and nucleus free. Core switching, pseudohypha formation and tube formation occurred in a majority of 62 tested clinical isolates, demonstrating that these developmental programmes are general characteristics of most strains of C. glabrata.  (+info)

Endogenous reactive oxygen species is an important mediator of miconazole antifungal effect. (2/351)

We investigated the significance of endogenous reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by fungi treated with miconazole. ROS production in Candida albicans was measured by a real-time fluorogenic assay. The level of ROS production was increased by miconazole at the MIC (0.125 micro g/ml) and was enhanced further in a dose-dependent manner, with a fourfold increase detected when miconazole was used at 12.5 micro g/ml. This increase in the level of ROS production was completely inhibited by pyrrolidinedithiocarbamate (PDTC), an antioxidant, at 10 micro M. In a colony formation assay, the decrease in cell viability associated with miconazole treatment was significantly prevented by addition of PDTC. Moreover, the level of ROS production by 10 clinical isolates of Candida species was inversely correlated with the miconazole MIC (r = -0.8818; P < 0.01). These results indicate that ROS production is important to the antifungal activity of miconazole.  (+info)

Prospective, multicenter surveillance study of Candida glabrata: fluconazole and itraconazole susceptibility profiles in bloodstream, invasive, and colonizing strains and differences between isolates from three urban teaching hospitals in New York City (Candida Susceptibility Trends Study, 1998 to 1999). (3/351)

Since the 1990s, the substantial increase in the rate of Candida glabrata infections has become a serious problem. As most C. glabrata infections arise from the host's endogenous microflora, the present prospective, multicenter analysis included all clinical isolates associated with colonization and with systemic and hematogenous candidiasis. Among 347 C. glabrata isolates, the overall rates of resistance to fluconazole (MIC > or = 64 micro g/ml) and itraconazole (MIC > or = 1 micro g/ml) were 10.7 and 15.2%, respectively, although for half (n = 148) of the itraconazole-susceptible isolates the MICs (0.25 to 0.5 micro g/ml) were in the susceptible-dependent upon dose range. Fluconazole resistance was more common among C. glabrata isolates obtained from centers caring for patients with cancer (MICs at which 90% of isolates are inhibited [MIC(90)s] = 32 micro g/ml) or AIDS (MIC(90)s > 64 micro g/ml) than among C. glabrata isolates from a community-based university medical center (MIC(90)s = 16 micro g/ml) (P = 0.001). Thirty-three bloodstream isolates and those obtained from other body sites had similar in vitro susceptibility profiles. The fluconazole MIC(90)s (< or =16 micro g/ml) for C. glabrata yeast isolates from the gastrointestinal tract were lower than those (> or =64 micro g/ml) for C. glabrata isolates from respiratory and urinary tract samples (P = 0.01). A similar discrepancy for itraconazole was not significant (P > 0.5). We did not observe differences in fluconazole or itraconazole susceptibility profiles among C. glabrata isolates associated with either hematogenous dissemination or colonization. The significant discrepancy in antifungal susceptibility among C. glabrata organisms isolated from hospitals in the same geographic region emphasizes the significance of periodic susceptibility surveillance programs for individual institutions, especially those providing care to patients at risk.  (+info)

Candida glabrata ATP-binding cassette transporters Cdr1p and Pdh1p expressed in a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain deficient in membrane transporters show phosphorylation-dependent pumping properties. (4/351)

The expression and drug efflux activity of the ATP binding cassette transporters Cdr1p and Pdh1p are thought to have contributed to the recent increase in the number of fungal infections caused by Candida glabrata. The function of these transporters and their pumping characteristics, however, remain ill defined. We have evaluated the function of Cdr1p and Pdh1p through their heterologous hyperexpression in a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain deleted in seven major drug efflux transporters to minimize the background drug efflux activity. Although both Cdr1p- and Pdh1p-expressing strains CDR1-AD and PDH1-AD acquired multiple resistances to structurally unrelated compounds, CDR1-AD showed, in most cases, higher levels of resistance than PDH1-AD. CDR1-AD also showed greater rhodamine 6G efflux and resistance to pump inhibitors, although plasma membrane fractions had comparable NTPase activities. These results indicate that Cdr1p makes a larger contribution than Phd1p to the reduced susceptibility of C. glabrata to xenobiotics. Both pump proteins were phosphorylated in a glucose-dependent manner. Whereas the phosphorylation of Cdr1p affected its NTPase activity, the protein kinase A-mediated phosphorylation of Pdh1p, which was necessary for drug efflux, did not. This suggests that phosphorylation of Pdh1p may be required for efficient coupling of NTPase activity with drug efflux.  (+info)

Identification of Candida glabrata by a 30-second trehalase test. (5/351)

Rapid (30-s) trehalase tests done with material from colonies of 482 yeasts suspended in a drop of trehalose solution on a commercially supplied glucose test strip were positive for 225 (99.1%) of 227 Candida glabrata isolates grown on either of two differential media, Candida ID medium or CandiSelect medium. The test was positive for only 3 (1.2%) and 12 (4.7%) of 255 isolates of other medically important yeast species grown on the same two media, respectively. A rapid maltase test done with a subset of 255 yeast isolates was negative for all but 1 of 64 trehalase-positive C. glabrata isolates, raising the specificity of the rapid testing for C. glabrata to 98.4 to 100%, depending on the isolation medium used. Rapid trehalase and maltase tests done independently in two laboratories with 217 yeast isolates showed sensitivities of 96.0 to 98.0% and specificities of 98.2 to 99.4% for identification of C. glabrata from colonies grown on Candida ID medium. The specificity was much lower because of frequent false-positive trehalose test results when the source of colonies was Sabouraud agar formulated with 4% glucose. We conclude that direct recognition of C. albicans as blue colonies on Candida ID isolation medium coupled with the performance of the 30-s trehalase and maltase tests for C. glabrata among the white colonies on this medium will allow the rapid presumptive identification of the two yeast species most commonly encountered in clinical samples.  (+info)

Multiple patterns of resistance to fluconazole in Candida glabrata isolates from a patient with oropharyngeal candidiasis receiving head and neck radiation. (8/351)

Candida glabrata has emerged in recent years as a significant cause of systemic fungal infection. We have previously reported on the first three patients receiving radiation for head and neck cancer to develop oropharyngeal candidiasis due to C. glabrata. The goal of this study was to track the development of increased fluconazole resistance in C. glabrata isolates and to evaluate previously described genetic mechanisms associated with this resistance from one of these three patients. The patient was a 52-year-old man with squamous cell carcinoma treated with radiation. At week 7 of his radiation, he developed oropharyngeal candidiasis, which was treated with 200 mg of fluconazole daily for 2 weeks. Serial cultures from this and three subsequent time points yielded C. glabrata. Isolates from these cultures were subjected to antifungal susceptibility testing, DNA karyotyping, and evaluation of the expression of genes previously associated with C. glabrata resistance to fluconazole, CgCDR1, CgCDR2, and CgERG11. Two strains (A and B) of C. glabrata were identified and found to display different patterns of resistance development and gene expression. Strain A developed resistance over a 2-week period and showed no overexpression of these genes. In contrast, strain B first showed resistance 6 weeks after fluconazole therapy was discontinued but showed overexpression of all three genes. In conclusion, development of resistance to fluconazole by C. glabrata is a highly varied process involving multiple molecular mechanisms.  (+info)

Candida glabrata is a major opportunistic human fungal pathogen causing superficial as well as systemic infections in immunocompromised individuals and several other patient cohorts. C. glabrata represents the second most prevalent cause of candidemia and a better understanding of its virulence and drug resistance mechanisms is thus of high medical relevance. In contrast to the diploid dimorphic pathogen C. albicans, whose ability to undergo filamentation is considered a major virulence trait, C. glabrata has a haploid genome and lacks the ability to switch to filamentous growth. A major impediment for the clinical therapy of C. glabrata infections is its high intrinsic resistance to several antifungal drugs, especially azoles. Further, the development of antifungal resistance, particularly during prolonged and prophylactic therapies is diminishing efficacies of therapeutic interventions. In addition, C. glabrata harbors a large repertoire of adhesins involved in the adherence to host epithelia.

We report a series of 7 cases of invasive Candida glabrata infections that developed during azole therapy, with several isolates exhibiting relatively high MICs of both the old (fluconazole) and new (voriconazole) drugs approved for treatment of candidemia. This observation has important therapeutic implications, as it suggests that Candida glabrata can exhibit clinically meaningful resistance across different azole drugs.. The spectrum of activity of voriconazole is increased compared to fluconazole, with several studies reporting that both Candida albicans and non-C. albicans Candida species exhibit low MICs of voriconazole (17, 18). The finding that MIC50s and MIC90s of voriconazole for C. glabrata are low, approximately 0.25 and 1 μg/ml in large surveys of nonselected isolates (19), suggests that this drug retains good clinical activity. It is with this justification that investigators of a recent randomized trial evaluating voriconazole therapy for candidemia suggest that voriconazole ...

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of silver nanoparticles (SN) and nystatin on pre-formed biofilms (single and dual species combinations of Candida glabrata and Candida albicans). Thus, adhesion and biofilm assays were performed on acrylic surface in presence of artificial saliva (AS), during 2 h and 48 h, respectively. Candida glabrata and C. albicans adhered cells were determined by counting recovered colony forming units (CFUs) on CHROMagar® Candida. In addition, crystal violet (CV) staining, as an indicator of biomass, was used to quantify biofilm formation ability. Furthermore, pre-formed biofilms were treated either with SN or nystatin and its effects on biofilms evaluated after 24 h. The results showed that both Candidia species adhered to, and formed biofilms on acrylic. Candida glabrata biofilms had significantly higher CFUs compared with biofilms of C. albicans (P,0.05). In the case of dual species biofilms, the number of CFUs for each species was equivalent to that ...
Author Summary Clinical infections by the yeast-like pathogen Candida glabrata have been ever-increasing over the past years. Importantly, C. glabrata is one of the most prevalent causes of drug-refractory fungal infections in humans. We have generated a novel large-scale collection encompassing 619 bar-coded C. glabrata mutants, each lacking a single gene. Extensive profiling of phenotypes reveals a number of novel genes implicated in tolerance to antifungal drugs that interfere with proper cell wall function, as well as genes affecting fitness of C. glabrata both during normal growth and under environmental stress. This fungal deletion collection will be a valuable resource for the community to study mechanisms of virulence and antifungal drug tolerance in C. glabrata, which is particularly relevant in view of the increasing prevalence of infections caused by this important human fungal pathogen.

HIS3 deletion construct: We cloned the HIS3 locus as a SphI-BglII fragment (2.5 kb) into Puc19 to generate pBC102.1. The sequence of this 2.5-kb region is available under GenBank accession number AF107116. Primer HIS3PST1, homologous to the 3′ end of the His3 coding region, was used to amplify a PstI-BglII fragment and primer HIS3PST2, homologous to the 5′ end of the HIS3 coding region, was used to amplify a SphI-PstI fragment. The primer sequences are in Table 2. These fragments were combined with SphI-BamHI-digested YIplac211 (Gietz and Sugino 1988) in a ligation to generate pBC104. Yiplac211 carries the Saccharomyces cerevisiae URA3 gene that functions in C. glabrata. pBC104 plasmid carries the 5′- and 3′-untranslated regions of HIS3, but is deleted for the entire coding region (nucleotide 1 to 631, with respect to the A of the first methionine codon). The flanking region was sequenced to verify that there were no mutations introduced by PCR. PBC104 was linearized by digestion with ...
Candida glabrata is considered a major opportunistic fungal pathogen of humans. The capacity of this yeast species to cause infections is dependent on the ability to grow within the human host environment and to assimilate the carbon sources available. Previous studies have suggested that C. albicans can encounter glucose-poor microenvironments during infection and that the ability to use alternative non-fermentable carbon sources, such as carboxylic acids, contributes to the virulence of this fungus. Transcriptional studies on C. glabrata cells identified a similar response, upon nutrient deprivation. In this work, we aimed at analyzing biofilm formation, antifungal drug resistance, and phagocytosis of C. glabrata cells grown in the presence of acetic acid as an alternative carbon source. C. glabrata planktonic cells grown in media containing acetic acid were more susceptible to fluconazole and were better phagocytosed and killed by macrophages than when compared to media lacking acetic acid.

Oral candidosis is a common opportunistic infection in debilitated individuals and Candida glabrata is the second most frequently isolated species from this condition, after Candida albicans. Candidal adherence to various biological or non-biological surfaces is considered a prerequisite for colonization, and pathogenesis of candidal infections, and their relative cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) is likely to be a possible contributory force involved in this process. Whereas a large body of data on the latter features of C. albicans is available, there is surprisingly little information on C. glabrata. As a comprehensive database on the relative adhesion and CSH of Candida spp. is instructive and useful, we investigated in vitro the latter attributes of 34 oral isolates of C. glabrata and 15 isolates of C. albicans. There were remarkable intraspecies differences in both the CSH and the adhesive ability of C. glabrata strains (p,0.001). Compared with C. albicans, C. glabrata demonstrated a ...
Background: Azoles and echinocandins are commonly used for treatment of invasive fungal infections. Resistance by Candida glabrata to echinocandins is emerging. Availability of antifungal susceptibility testing of bloodstream isolates (especially C. glabrata) is necessary for appropriate therapy. The aim of this study was to determine antifungal susceptibilities for C. glabrata and compare results from two testing methods. Methods: A total of 429 Candida blood culture isolates were collected from unique New Orleans patients during 2009-2015. Of these, 151 (35%) were C. glabrata (146 viable for testing). Caspofungin and fluconazole MICs were determined by two FDA-approved antifungal susceptibility testing methods, the Vitek® 2 system and the Etest® method. Vitek MICs were finalized in an average time of 13h; Etest MICs were read at 24h. Results: C. glabrata Vitek 2 and Etest determined caspofungin resistance ranged from 6% to 7%, respectively; fluconazole resistance, 12% to 23%, respectively. ...

The selection of stable and suitable reference genes for real-time quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) is a crucial prerequisite for reliable gene expression analysis under different experimental conditions. The present study aimed to identify reference genes as internal controls for gene expression studies by RT-qPCR in azole-stimulated Candida glabrata. The expression stability of 16 reference genes under fluconazole stress was evaluated using fold change and standard deviation computations with the hkgFinder tool. Our data revealed that the mRNA expression levels of three ribosomal RNAs (RDN5.8, RDN18, and RDN25) remained stable in response to fluconazole, while PGK1, UBC7, and UBC13 mRNAs showed only approximately 2.9-, 3.0-, and 2.5-fold induction by azole, respectively. By contrast, mRNA levels of the other 10 reference genes (ACT1, EF1α, GAPDH, PPIA, RPL2A, RPL10, RPL13A, SDHA, TUB1, and UBC4) were dramatically increased in C. glabrata following antifungal treatment, exhibiting changes ranging from 4.5-

N2 - Ten years ago, when molecular genetic methods were being applied vigorously to viruses, bacterial pathogens and eukaryotic parasites, there seemed to be a partial paralysis in applying them to infectious fungi; this state of affairs was more than apparent in the composition of the symposia at the ISHAM conference in 1987. Since then, however, things have changed. The ISHAM conference held in Italy in 1997 was replete with studies utilizing molecular genetic techniques to answer questions related to epidemiology, pathogenesis, drug development and typing.

Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Affleck on candida glabrata symptoms: Thrush is a yeast infection in the mouth. Candida is the name of the yeast. Cystitis is a bladder infection, which could be a viral infection, bacterial infection or a yeast infection. Yeast infection just means that you have an infection from yeast and it could be just about anywhere. Vaginal yeast infections and oral (mouth) yeast infections do tend to be the most common, but skin occurs too.

Growth kinetics and extracellular bioemulsifier production. Figure 1 shows the biomass concentration, pH and emulsification index of Candida glabrata cultivation in mineral medium containing 7.5% of cotton seed oil plus 5% of glucose. Maximum biomass concentration was achieved after 72 hrs. After 48 hrs of growth, a diauxic behaviour was observed, probably due to the consumption of other substrate used in the fermentation. During the exponential growth phase, culture medium pH gradually decreased from 5.7 to 2.6, after which it remained around 3.0. The profile of emulsification activity production was observed in three independently run fermentations. Emulsification of cotton seed oil increased with increasing biomass formation, reaching its optimum nearly at about 24 hrs, and after 48 hrs of growth it showed with constant values around 75% until the end of cultivation. Conversely, the emulsification of n-hexadecane started after the microorganism entered the stationary growth phase, with ...

A new genetic analysis of fungal yeast infections (candidiasis) from around the world has revealed surprising secrets about how these microbes reproduce and cause disease, according to a new study published in Current Biology from researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation.. Working together with researchers in the Université Paris-Sud in France and University Medical Centre Göttingen in Germany, ICREA Research Professor Toni Gabaldón and his team at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona read the genetic code of 33 separate strains of the yeast Candida glabrata, the second most common cause of candidiasis*.. They discovered that all the samples were very different from each other at a genetic level, particularly within genes encoding molecules that help the yeast to infect humans.. Until now, it was thought that C. glabrata only reproduced asexually by budding, even though the yeast contains genes required for sexual reproduction.. Gabaldón and his team found strong genetic ...
Nearly all mitochondrial proteins are coded by the nuclear genome and must be transported into mitochondria by the translocase of the outer membrane complex. Tom40 is the central subunit of the translocase complex and forms a pore in the mitochondrial outer membrane. To date, the mechanism it utilizes for protein transport remains unclear. Tom40 is predicted to comprise a membrane-spanning β-barrel domain with conserved α-helical domains at both the N and C termini. To investigate Tom40 function, including the role of the N- and C-terminal domains, recombinant forms of the Tom40 protein from the yeast Candida glabrata, and truncated constructs lacking the N- and/or C-terminal domains, were functionally characterized in planar lipid membranes ...
Recently Peeters and colleagues (2006) discovered a mechanism in yeast by which the G alfa protein Gpa2 activates PKA through two kelch-repeat proteins, Krh1 and Krh2, bypassing adenylate cyclase stimulation. Hence, Gpa2 regulates PKA activity via two distinct pathways: through stimulation of adenylate cyclase and through inhibition of the Krh proteins. We investigated if the C. glabrata homologues of ScKrh1 and ScKrh2 can complement the respective deletion mutants of S. cerevisiae. By measuring the trehalose content of the respective deletions mutants, transformed with CgKrh1 and CgKrh2 cloned into pBEVY-vectors, after 12, 24 and 48 hours, we showed that ChKrh1 and ChKrh2 can complement the function of ScKrh1 and ScKrh2. We will also investigate the expression of STRE-controlled genes and the formation of pseudohyphae in these transformed deletion mutants ...

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 yeasts are found in acidified matured phagosomes. In the present study, we aimed at elucidating the processes leading to inhibition of phagosome acidification and maturation. We show that phagosomes containing viable C. glabrata cells do not fuse with pre-labeled lysosomes and possess low phagosomal hydrolase activity. Inhibition of acidification occurs independent of macrophage type (human/murine), differentiation (M1-/M2-type) or activation status (vitamin D3 stimulation). We observed no differential activation of macrophage MAPK or NFκB signaling cascades downstream of pattern recognition receptors after internalization of viable compared to heat killed yeasts, but Syk activation decayed faster in macrophages ...

abstract = {The pathogenicity of Candida glabrata to patients remains poorly understood for lack of convenient animal models to screen large numbers of mutants for altered virulence. In this study, we explore the minihost model Drosophila melanogaster from the dual perspective of host and pathogen. As in vertebrates, wild-type flies contain C. glabrata systemic infections yet are unable to kill the injected yeasts. As for other fungal infections in Drosophila, the Toll pathway restrains C. glabrata proliferation. Persistent C. glabrata yeasts in wild-type flies do not appear to be able to take shelter in hemocytes from the action of the Toll pathway, the effectors of which remain to be identified. Toll pathway mutant flies succumb to injected C. glabrata. In this immunosuppressed background, cellular defenses provide a residual level of protection. Although both the Gram-negative binding protein 3 pattern recognition receptor and the Persephone protease-dependent detection pathway are required ...
Pathogenic microbes exist in dynamic niches and have evolved robust adaptive responses to promote survival in their hosts. The major fungal pathogens of humans, Candida albicans and Candida glabrata, are exposed to a range of environmental stresses in their hosts including osmotic, oxidative and nitrosative stresses. Significant efforts have been devoted to the characterization of the adaptive responses to each of these stresses. In the wild, cells are frequently exposed simultaneously to combinations of these stresses and yet the effects of such combinatorial stresses have not been explored. We have developed a common experimental platform to facilitate the comparison of combinatorial stress responses in C. glabrata and C. albicans. This platform is based on the growth of cells in buffered rich medium at 30°C, and was used to define relatively low, medium and high doses of osmotic (NaCl), oxidative (H(2)O(2)) and nitrosative stresses (e.g. dipropylenetriamine (DPTA)-NONOate). The effects of ...

Increased fluconazole resistance has been noted in oral C. albicans isolates from patients with very advanced AIDS who have been receiving fluconazole over long periods. Both the acquisition of new strains and increased resistance in prior strains have been noted (4, 6, 14). Multiple mechanisms of resistance have been reported, including mutations in the gene coding for the azole target enzyme, C14 sterol demethylase, and increased transcription of multidrug efflux transporters (19, 21). As in the case for AIDS, one of us has previously identified two transplant recipients whose C. albicans isolates became resistant to fluconazole and who developed deep infections (11, 12). The isolates for these patients exhibited increased expression of efflux pumps (12). Isolates from one of these patients developed drug resistance in a little over 2 weeks, similar to the findings reported here for C. glabrata, for which the MIC doubled an average of every 31 days. Although we did not attempt to assess the ...

Cell adhesion proteins on fungal cell surfaces mediate interactions both with other cells of the same type and with the external environment (Douglas, et al. 2007, Dranginis, et al. 2007). These interactions impact critical processes including mating, pathogenesis, and biofilm formation. Fungal adhesins are typically GPI-anchored proteins that have been covalently liked to the cell wall, such that their N-terminal ligand binding domains extend from the cell surface. They frequently occur as families of related proteins (Tronchin, et al. 2008). Members of two such groups, the flocculation/agglutination genes of the model yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Kobayashi, et al. 1998) and the related EPA genes (Kaur, et al. 2005) of the pathogenic fungus Candida glabrata, are lectins. Several of the 23 identified EPA genes have been functionally shown to mediate binding of C. glabrata to host cells (Castano, et al. 2005, Domergue, et al. 2005), an essential step in infection and virulence.

Gabaldón and his team found strong genetic evidence that C. glabrata could reproduce sexually, giving it the opportunity to swap genetic information. This ability may give the yeast new ways to evolve resistance to treatment and increase their infectious ability.. By using this genetic data to reconstruct a family tree for all the strains, the researchers showed that there were originally seven distinct types of C. glabrata in separate parts of the world which have only recently come into contact and intermingled, presumably as a result of increased global human migration and travel. The findings also raise some intriguing questions about the lifestyle of C. glabrata, which was previously thought only to survive on the human body. Microbes that can only live on one organism (known as obligate commensals) tend to evolve in lock-step with their host, with specific strains tending to be restricted to particular geographical areas. But the CRG team found evidence of rapid evolution across ...
The problems in comparing the fruit fly model - in which death of the host is the read-out parameter, with the murine model - in which fitness and growth of the pathogen serves as the measure, are self-evident. For these and other reasons, the usefulness of invertebrate models is often hotly debated. Yet, for each of these infection models, the above are the biologically relevant and - equally important - measurable parameters. Furthermore, although in our model mice do not succumb to C. glabrata infection, a strong correlation between fungal organ burden and virulence (measured by survival time) has been shown, e.g. for C. neoformans mutants (Liu et al., 2008). To enable a comparison between these two models, we have introduced the virulence scores. In mouse, an increase or decrease by one MVI unit correlates to a twofold increase or decrease in the relative in vivo growth of the mutant compared with wild type. In fly, a change by one on our FVI scale equals a twofold shorter or longer mean ...

A prospective, observational, multicentre study of invasive candidosis (IC) in surgical patients in intensive care units (ICUs) was conducted from 2006 to 2008 in 72 ICUs in 14 European countries. A total of 779 patients (62.5% males, median age 63 years) with IC were included. The median rate of candidaemia was 9 per 1000 admissions. In 10.8% the infection was already present at the time of admission to ICU. Candida albicans accounted for 54% of the isolates, followed by Candida parapsilosis 18.5%, Candida glabrata 13.8%, Candida tropicalis 6%, Candida krusei 2.5%, and other species 5.3%. Infections due to C. krusei (57.9%) and C. glabrata (43.6%) had the highest crude mortality rate. The most common preceding surgery was abdominal (51.5%), followed by thoracic (20%) and neurosurgery (8.2%). Candida glabrata was more often isolated after abdominal surgery in patients ,/=60 years, and C. parapsilosis was more often isolated in neurosurgery and multiple trauma patients as well as children ,/=1 ...
Background: Use of fluconazole (FLU) in treatment of candidemia has been questioned due to variations in in-vitro susceptibilities of different Candida species to FLU. Significance of in-vitro differences on patient outcomes and efficacy of FLU for C. glabrata fungemia (Cg) remains unknown. The objective was to determine how frequently antifungal treatment is changed among patients diagnosed with Cg; and to evaluate outcome of patients with Cg, treated with FLU regimen (FR) vs non-FLU regimen (NFR). Methods: Patients with candidemia at St. John Hospital were identified by review of microbiology from February 2003 until February 2006. Following data was collected on patients with Cg: age, gender, comorbid illness, risk factors for candidemia, duration of infection, antifungal therapy (dose, duration and changes made in response to culture results), and patient outcomes. Cg patients were compared with age and gender matched control patients with C. albicans fungemia (Ca). Results: Among 152 ...

Candidiasis has become an important concern for clinical practice, especially with the increasing incidence of immunocompromised patients. In this scenario, the development resistance to fluconazole presents a challenge for treating these opportunistic infections. The aim of this study was to evaluate some epidemiology features of Candidainfections in a Brazilian University Hospital using data, previously unavailable. We observed that 44% of the 93 clinical isolates tested, belonged to Candida albicansspecies and 56% belonged to non-Candida albicansspecies (mainly Candida tropicalis and Candida glabrata). Most strains were isolated from urine samples where C. albicans was predominantly detected. 29 strains presented a fluconazole resistance phenotype and of these, 22 were chemosensitised by FK506, a classical inhibitor of ABC transporters related to azoles resistance. These data suggest the probable role of efflux pumps in this resistance phenotype. Our study highlights the need for developing ...
Among the members of the genusCandida, Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida glabrata, and Candida parapsilosis formerly represented more than 80% of the usual clinical Candida isolates, while Candida kruseiwas only sporadically isolated (11) and was regarded as a commensal organism (13, 24). During the past decade,C. krusei has been recognized as a true pathogen, particularly in immunocompromised patients. The resistance of this organism to fluconazole and the systematic use of this drug may explain the significant increase in the numbers of C. kruseiinfections, (9, 20, 31). In contrast to C. albicans, only a few articles concerning the potential virulence of C. krusei have been published (10, 12, 14, 15, 21,22, 25, 26). Likewise, relatively few studies have been conducted to characterize antigens of C. krusei, and no monoclonal antibody (MAb) specific to this yeast has yet been developed. The present study concerns the description of a MAb (MAb 6B3) specific for the species C. krusei. ...
Fluconazole (Diflucan; Pfizer, Inc., New York, NY) is a synthetic triazole antifungal bourgeois with capacity against a wide assortment of pathogenic barm, including Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis. Potentially resistant strains include Candida glabrata, Candida lusitaniae, and Candida krusei. Fluconazole has gained wide clinical assent because of its favorable pharmacokinetics and excellent condom life. In healthy subjects and patients not in an intensive care unit (ICU), fluconazole is almost completely absorbed, with an absolute bioavailability of 90% after oral justice, and exhibits a half-life of approximately 30 work time, which allows for once-daily dosing. Fluconazole is eliminated predominantly by the kidneys; renal permit accounts for 80% of totality permit ...

Unparalleled performance - tested for optimal growth SUMMARY. CRITERION™ HardyCHROM™ Candida is a selective and differential medium containing chromogenic substrates. After degradation by specific enzymes, the substrates release different colored compounds. Certain species or groups of organisms can then be differentiated with a minimum number of confirmatory tests. Colonies of C. albicans appear green to dark metallic green, C. tropicalis colonies appear medium blue to dark metallic blue with a blue halo, and C. krusei colonies appear flat, often rough or crenated, and pink to medium pink in color. Other species appear pink, often with a darker mauve center (C. glabrata and other species). Other yeasts may appear white to pink. Additionally, HardyCHROM™ Candida can be used in conjunction with Rapid Trehalose Broth (Cat. no. Z205) or GlabrataQuick™ (Cat. no. Z298) to aid in the identification of C. glabrata. When HardyCHROM™ Candida is used as the primary plating medium, only colonies ...

... (also known as "rose gardener's disease"[1]) is a disease caused by the infection of the fungus Sporothrix schenckii.[2] This fungal disease usually affects the skin, although other rare forms can affect the lungs, joints, bones, and even the brain. Because roses can spread the disease, it is one of a few diseases referred to as rose-thorn or rose-gardeners' disease.[3] Because S. schenckii is naturally found in soil, hay, sphagnum moss, and plants, it usually affects farmers, gardeners, and agricultural workers.[2] It enters through small cuts and abrasions in the skin to cause the infection. In case of sporotrichosis affecting the lungs, the fungal spores enter through the respiratory pathways. Sporotrichosis can also be acquired from handling cats with the disease; it is an occupational hazard for veterinarians. Sporotrichosis progresses slowly - the first symptoms may appear 1 to 12 weeks (average 3 weeks) after the initial exposure to the fungus. Serious complications can ...

Toxoplasmosis is becoming a global health hazard as it infects 30-50% of the world human population. Clinically, the life-long presence of the parasite in tissues of a majority of infected individuals is usually considered asymptomatic. However, a number of studies show that this 'asymptomatic infection' may also lead to development of other human pathologies. ... The seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis correlated with various disease burden. Statistical associations does not necessarily mean causality. The precautionary principle suggests however that possible role of toxoplasmosis as a triggering factor responsible for development of several clinical entities deserves much more attention and financial support both in everyday medical practice and future clinical research ...
Recent debate has centered on whether the Basidiobolaceae should be included in the Entomophthorales, or raised to ordinal status. Molecular systematics approaches so far give an ambiguous answer. Some analyses suggest the Basdiobolaceae are more closely related to certain chytrid fungi than to the Entomophthorales.[3] Others find weak support to maintain them in the Entomophthorales.[4] Morphological characters can be found to support either hypothesis. ...
Not every hospital in the USA is required to publicize details of infectious outbreaks which occur within their facilities. In 2014, details of a lethal mucormycosis outbreak[13] which occurred in 2008 emerged after television and newspaper reports responded to an article in a pediatric medical journal.[14] Contaminated hospital linen was found to be spreading the infection. A cluster of infections occurred in the wake of the 2011 Joplin tornado. As of July 19, a total of 18 suspected cases of cutaneous mucormycosis had been identified, of which 13 were confirmed. A confirmed case was defined as 1) necrotizing soft-tissue infection requiring antifungal treatment or surgical debridement in a person injured in the tornado, 2) with illness onset on or after May 22 and 3) positive fungal culture or histopathology and genetic sequencing consistent with a Mucormycete. No additional cases related to that outbreak have been reported since June 17. Ten patients required admission to an intensive-care ...
For patients who are unresponsive to fluconazole, options are limited. Several case reports have studied the efficacy of three newer antifungal agents in the treatment of disease that is refractory to first-line therapy: posaconazole and voriconazole (triazole compounds similar in structure to fluconazole) and caspofungin (glucan synthesis inhibitor of the echinocandin structural class). However, these drugs have not been FDA approved, and clinical trials are lacking. Susceptibility testing of Coccidioides species in one report revealed uniform susceptibility to most antifungal agents, including these newer drugs. In very severe cases, combination therapy with amphotericin B and an azole have been postulated, although no trials have been conducted. Caspofungin in combination with fluconazole has been cited as beneficial in a case report of a 31-year-old Asian patient with coccidioidal pneumonia. In a case report of a 23-year-old Black male with HIV and coccidioidal meningitis, combination ...

  • however, the potential of clinically significant resistance has become evident with recent reports noting the development of C. glabrata candidemia in patients receiving fluconazole ( 11 ) and voriconazole ( 7 ) therapy and the observation of cross-resistance developing in isolates recovered from the oral cavity and bloodstream ( 5 ). (asm.org)
  • Availability of antifungal susceptibility testing of bloodstream isolates (especially C. glabrata ) is necessary for appropriate therapy. (confex.com)
  • The genes ADY2a, ADY2b, FPS1, FPS2 , and ATO3 , encoding putative carboxylate transporters, were upregulated in C. glabrata planktonic and biofilm cells in the presence of acetic acid. (frontiersin.org)
  • This study was performed to determine the significance of cross-resistance to new azole drugs among C. glabrata isolates recovered as a cause of infection in azole-treated hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients. (asm.org)
  • Candida glabrata is currently the second most common cause of candidemia in the United States, and infection is associated with considerable mortality ( 6 , 12 ). (asm.org)
  • Expression vectors for C-terminal fusions with fluorescent proteins and epitope tags in Candida glabrata. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • C. glabrata KRH1 and KRH2 deletion strains will be made. (kuleuven.be)
  • C. glabrata is resistant to fluconazole, a common used antifungal, and has a higher mortality rate compared to C. albicans. (kuleuven.be)
  • We performed this study to evaluate the clinical significance of azole cross-resistance in C. glabrata isolates recovered from colonizing and invasive sites of patients receiving azole therapy after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). (asm.org)
  • In this work, we aimed at analyzing biofilm formation, antifungal drug resistance, and phagocytosis of C. glabrata cells grown in the presence of acetic acid as an alternative carbon source. (frontiersin.org)
  • Although the presentations in this symposium covered only a fraction of the molecular methods now being applied to Candida pathogenesis, they nevertheless provided a intriguing view of what is in store for us in the coming years. (unthsc.edu)
  • In contrary to C. albicans, C. glabrata has a normal codon usage. (kuleuven.be)
  • Transcriptional studies on C. glabrata cells identified a similar response, upon nutrient deprivation. (frontiersin.org)
  • C. glabrata planktonic cells grown in media containing acetic acid were more susceptible to fluconazole and were better phagocytosed and killed by macrophages than when compared to media lacking acetic acid. (frontiersin.org)
  • However, in these studies C. glabrata cells were grown in glucose. (frontiersin.org)
  • What is the best diet and remedy for candida glabrata? (healthtap.com)
  • Twenty-three C. glabrata isolates were recovered from 4 patients who developed candidemia while receiving fluconazole and three patients who developed candidemia while receiving voriconazole. (asm.org)
  • Caution is advised when considering voriconazole therapy for C. glabrata candidemia that occurs in patients with extensive prior azole drug exposure. (asm.org)
  • These observations suggest that C. glabrata exhibits considerable clinically significant cross-resistance between older azole drugs (fluconazole and itraconazole) and voriconazole. (asm.org)
  • Even though molecular biology methods are easily adapted to study this organism, there are not enough vectors that will allow probing the transcriptional and translational activity of any gene of interest in C. glabrata. (sigmaaldrich.com)
