Very strong in vitro proteinase activity was detected in all isolates of C. parapsilosis sensu stricto and C. orthopsilosis, whereas only two isolates of C. metapsilosis showed positive enzymatic activity. Treviño-Rangel et al.2 also observed proteinase activity in three species of the complex. Several studies have shown that Candida parapsilosis complex species express different proteinase activities. Silva et al.6 found positive protease activity in 37.7% isolates of C. parapsilosis sensu stricto; however, only 7.8% of the isolates revealed high enzymatic activity. Furthermore, none of the C. metapsilosis and C. orthopsilosis isolates exhibited protease activity in that study.. Some studies on the virulence of Candida species verified that few isolates of the C. parapsilosis complex have proteinase activity, regardless of whether the isolation site was nail or blood1,7. Our research identified significantly higher enzymatic activity of proteinase in isolates from blood than from nails (Figure ...
PIRES, Regina Helena et al. Candida parapsilosis complex water isolates from a haemodialysis unit: biofilm production and in vitro evaluation of the use of clinical antifungals. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2011, vol.106, n.6, pp.646-654. ISSN 0074-0276. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02762011000600002.. Candida parapsilosis, currently divided into three distinct species, proliferates in glucose-rich solutions and has been associated with infections resulting from the use of medical devices made of plastic, an environment common in dialysis centres. The aims of this study were (i) to screen for Candida orthopsilosis and Candida metapsilosis (100 environmental isolates previously identified as C. parapsilosis), (ii) to test the ability of these isolates to form biofilm and (iii) to investigate the in vitro susceptibility of Candida spp biofilms to the antifungal agents, fluconazole (FLC) and amphotericin B (AMB). Isolates were obtained from a hydraulic circuit collected from a haemodialysis ...
An in vitro model has been developed for study of cariogenic potential of different Candida species. Slices were prepared from the root of extracted healthy teeth. These disks were covered with inert material, only the central hole, i.e. the root canal dentin surface remained uncovered. These preparates with free root dentin surfaces were incubated in Sabouraud medium in the presence of six-six Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei, Candida inconspicua and Candida norvegensis strains. The calcium release was detected for 15 days. Two types of release could be distinguished. C. albicans deliberated calcium more aggressively (type A curve), while other Candidas were characterized by less expressed calcium releasing capacity (type B curve). Curves type A and B were divided into four steps in order to characterize more precisely the different dynamics of calcium release. Analyses of the different steps also suggested the more aggressive behaviour of C. ...
This study aimed at identifying strains of the C. parapsilosis complex isolated from animals, as well as to assess their in vitro antifungal susceptibility profile and in vitro production of virulence attributes. We used 28 isolates of C. parapsilosis (sensu lato) recovered from clinically healthy animals. The strains were phenotypically characterized, followed by molecular identification of the species through PCR-Restriction Enzyme Analysis. Then, the susceptibility of the strains to amphotericin B, itraconazole, voriconazole, fluconazole and caspofungin was assessed through broth microdilution, according to CLSI (M27-A3). Additionally, the ability of the strains to produce biofilm, phospholipases and proteases was analyzed. Molecular analysis showed thirteen C. parapsilosis (sensu stricto), ten C. orthopsilosis and five C. metapsilosis strains. In vitro resistance to fluconazole was observed in three strains of C. parapsilosis (sensu stricto) and two C. metapsilosis. All tested strains were ...

Candida haemulonii is now considered a complex of two species and one variety: Candida haemulonii sensu stricto, Candida duobushaemulonii and the variety Candida haemulonii var. vulnera. Identification (ID) of these species is relevant for epidemiological purposes and for therapeutic management, but the different phenotypic commercial systems are unable to provide correct species ID for these emergent pathogens. Hence, we evaluated the MALDI-TOF MS performance for the ID of C. haemulonii species, analyzing isolates/strains of C. haemulonii complex species, Candida pseudohaemulonii and Candida auris by two commercial platforms, their databases and softwares. To differentiate C. haemulonii sensu sctricto from the variety vulnera, we used the ClinProTools™ models and a single-peak analysis with the software FlexAnalysis™. The Biotyper™ database gave 100% correct species ID for C. haemulonii sensu stricto, C. pseudohaemulonii and C. auris, with 69% of correct species ID for C. duobushaemulonii. Vitek

That analysis resolved the 48 strains examined into five closely related species: K. telluris, Candida bovina, C. pintolopesii, Candida ...
The article gives the use of rye stillage by during cultivation process of fodder yeast Candida utilis and Candida tropicalis. Experiments concerned the impact of fodder yeast culture on the amount of protein formed in during cultivation process on stillage. In this studies were also conducted research with an additional carbon source to increase the yield of protein by yeast. On the basis of the results obtained it was found the highest increase of yeast biomass in the case of the application of two strains of yeast: Candida utilis and Candida tropicalis by cultivation process on rye stillage. The use of nitrogen and phosphorus in the form of mineral compounds in cultivation process resulted in an increase the amount of biomass of yeast in the stillage ...
Abstract: The C. parapsilosis sensu lato group involves three closely related species, C. parapsilosis sensu stricto, C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis. Although their overall clinical importance is dramatically increasing, there are few studies regarding the virulence properties of the species of the psilosis complex. In this study, we tested 63 C. parapsilosis sensu stricto, 12 C. metapsilosis and 18 C. orthopsilosis isolates for the ability to produce extracellular proteases, secrete lipases and form pseudohyphae. Significant differences were noted between species, with the C. metapsilosis strains failing to secrete lipase or to produce pseudohyphae. Nine different clinical isolates each of C. parapsilosis sensu stricto, C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were co-cultured with immortalized murine or primary human macrophages. C. parapsilosis sensu stricto isolates showed a significantly higher resistance to killing by primary human macrophages compared to C. orthopsilosis and C. ...
The genetic heterogeneity and antifungal susceptibility patterns of Candida parapsilosis isolated from blood cultures of patients were investigated in this study. Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis generated 5 unique profiles from 42 isolates. Based on the major DNA fragments of the RAPD profiles, the isolates were identified as RAPD type P1 (29 isolates), P2 (6 isolates), P3 (4 isolates), P4 (2 isolates) and P5 (1 isolate). Sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) gene of the isolates identified RAPD type P1 as C. parapsilosis, P2 and P3 as Candida orthopsilosis, P4 as Candida metapsilosis, and P5 as Lodderomyces elongisporus. Nucleotide variations in ITS gene sequences of C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were detected. Antifungal susceptibility testing using Etests showed that all isolates tested in this study were susceptible to amphotericin B, fluconazole, ketoconazole, itraconazole and voriconazole. C. parapsilosis isolates exhibited higher MIC50 values than
The deficiency of protein in human food and animal feed is well recognized due to the rapid growth of population. It is therefore, important to increase protein production by utilizing all the available ways and means. In the light of this, an attempt was made in this study by selecting Candida utilis NOY1. This yeast was used to determine the optimum concentration of different minerals salts and nitrogen source on growth. This study aimed at improving the medium composition for efficient and high yield yeast biomass production using tubers wastes. Proximate analysis of the biomass revealed that the protein and nucleic acid content were 54.8 and 4.6%, respectively. Amino acid profiles were found to be comparable to those of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations reference. This study shows that tubers wastes supplemented with peptone and yeast extract could be used as a good production medium for large scale production of yeast biomass and C. utilis NOY1 possesses a high protein
Candida parapsilosis is frequently isolated from hospital environments, like air and surfaces, and causes serious nosocomial infections. Molecular studies provided evidence of great genetic diversity within the C. parapsilosis species complex but, despite their growing importance as pathogens, little is known about their potential to cause disease, particularly their interactions with phagocytes. In this study, clinical and environmental C. parapsilosis isolates, and strains of the related species C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were assayed for their ability to induce macrophage cytotocixity and secretion of the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-α, to produce pseudo-hyphae and to secrete hydrolytic enzymes. Environmental C. parapsilosis isolates caused a statistically significant (p = 0.0002) higher cell damage compared with the clinical strains, while C. orthopsilosis and C. metapsilosis were less cytotoxic. On the other hand, clinical isolates induced a higher TNF-α production compared with
The 2009 IDSA candidemia guidelines recommend evaluating recent exposure to azoles when selecting either fluconazole or an echinocandin for the empirical management of candidemia in nonneutropenic patients (15). An echinocandin is recommended as initial empirical therapy for patients with recent exposure to azoles, due to potential concerns about the isolation of fluconazole-nonsusceptible Candida species. Earlier studies that assessed the relationship between fluconazole and nonsusceptible Candida species focused on risk variables associated with specific Candida species (4, 10, 17, 18). More-recent studies evaluated risk factors for fluconazole-nonsusceptible Candida isolates (7, 11, 21). Exposure to any antifungal was identified as an independent variable associated with reduced fluconazole susceptibility among various Candida species, including C. albicans, C. tropicalis, and C. parapsilosis (13). Prior exposure to fluconazole was identified as an independent risk factor for C. glabrata ...
The risk factors for and clinical features of bloodstream infection with uncommon Candida spp. (species other than C. albicans, C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis, C. tropicals and C. krusei) are incompletely defined. To identify clinical variables associated with these species that might guide management, 57 cases of candidaemia resulting from uncommon Candida spp. were analysed in comparison with 517 episodes of Candida albicans candidaemia (2001-2004). Infection with uncommon Candida spp. (5.3% of candidaemia cases), as compared with C. albicans candidaemia, was significantly more likely to be outpatient-acquired than inpatient-acquired (15 of 57 vs. 65 of 517 episodes, p 0.01). Prior exposure to fluconazole was uncommon (n = 1). Candida dubliniensis was the commonest species (n = 22, 39%), followed by Candida guilliermondii (n = 11, 19%) and Candida lusitaniae (n = 7, 12%).C. dubliniensis candidaemia was independently associated with recent intravenous drug use (p 0.01) and chronic liver disease ...

Seven isolates of Candida stellatoidea were studied for their electrophoretic karyotype, virulence for mice, sensitivity to UV radiation, growth rate in vitro, reaction on cycloheximide-indicator medium, and proteinase activity. The isolates exhibited one of two distinct electrophoretic karyotypes as determined by orthogonal field alternating gel electrophoresis (OFAGE). Four isolates, including the type culture of C. stellatoidea, belonged to electrophoretic karyotype type I by OFAGE, showing eight to nine bands of which at least two bands were less than 1,000 kilobases in size as estimated by comparison with the DNA bands of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. These isolates failed to produce fatal infection in mice within 20 days when 5 X 10(5) cells were injected intravenously. The yeasts were cleared from the kidneys of two of three mice tested by day 30. Type I showed proteinase activity on bovine serum albumin agar at pH 3.8 and produced a negative reaction on cycloheximide-bromcresol green medium ...
SUMMARY: Long-chain fatty acid compositions were determined for strains of seven species of Candida and their counterparts within the perfect genera: Candida shehatae and Pichia stipitis, Candida kefyr and Kluyveromyces marxianus, Candida lipolytica and Yarrowia lipolytica, Candida pelliculosa and Hansenula anomala, Candida pseudotropicalis and Kluyveromyces fragilis, Candida utilis and Hansenula jadinii, Candida parapsilosis and Lodderomyces elongisporus, Candida shehatae and Pichia stipitis. Close correlations were found between the fatty acid compositions of these pairs of strains, indicating that the analysis of long-chain fatty acids may be useful for studying the relationships between the perfect and imperfect states of the genus Candida.
Candida species are a common cause of nosocomial bloodstream infections. Recent surveillance has shown an increase in the relative proportion of infections caused by Candida glabrata, which has reduced susceptibility to fluconazole. We undertook sentinel surveillance with antifungal susceptibility testing to monitor the trends in the proportions of various Candida species causing invasive disease. Forty-one institutions participated in the Candida Surveillance Study. All isolates were submitted to a central laboratory for identification and susceptibility testing. Susceptibility testing was performed in compliance with CLSI guidelines using a custom, broth dilution, microtiter system. There were 5,900 isolates submitted for identification and antifungal susceptibility testing. The distribution of species was as follows: C. albicans, 2,567 (43.5%) isolates; C. glabrata, 1,464 (24.8%) isolates; C. parapsilosis, 1,048 (17.8%) isolates; C. tropicalis, 527 (8.9%) isolates; C. krusei, 109 (1.9%) ...
Fungal UTI is one of the important factor in mortality and morbidity in hospitalised patients especially in paediatric population. Our study was aimed to report the prevalence of Candida spp. amongst suspected cases of fungal UTI and determine its antifungal susceptibility profile. A total of 63 (31.5%) Candida spp. were isolated out of 200 urine specimens collected from pediatric patients. In our study, Non-albicans Candida species (57.14%) were the predominant isolates compared to Candida albicans (42.86%). Non-albicans Candida demonstrated high resistance to azoles. Therefore, it can be concluded that non-albicans Candida species has emerged as an important cause of urinary tract infections. Their isolation from clinical specimen can no longer be ignored as a nonpathogenic isolate nor can it be dismissed as a contaminant, since Candiduria may even be a marker of disseminated candidiasis.. ...

This paper describes a small cluster of infections due to C. inconspicua in patients with malignancies. Several pieces of evidence are confirmatory of the epidemic nature of this cluster. The three cases of infection occurred over a period of 1 month and involved patients in adjacent single rooms. No previous isolate of C. inconspicua from clinical, surveillance, or environmental samples has been reported at our Department. No more C. inconspicuainfections were detected after that episode. All our C. inconspicua isolates are genetically indistinguishable by both REA and RAPD analysis. These identical profiles are not attributable to a lack of discriminative power of our molecular typing systems, given their capability to differentiate our isolates from the ATCC reference strain, which was used specifically to validate our typing systems. The slightly different RAPD profile generated with primer CI25 for the CVC tip isolate from patient 2 is likely to be expression of a microevolutionary change ...

To the Editor: Candida species cause serious infections in the immunocompromised and critically ill host. Studies have reported an emergence of non-albicans Candida (NAC) spp., particularly C. tropicalis, C. glabrata, C. krusei and C. parapsilosis.1 The widespread use of fluconazole might have contributed to this increase in less-susceptible and intrinsically triazole-resistant Candida species.2 While C. albicans remains the most common Candida species isolated at Tygerberg Hospital, especially in ICU patients, C. tropicalis and C. parapsilosis have emerged as predominant causes of candidaemia in children with haematological malignancies, and important pathogens in HIV-infected children. Fluconazole was active against all of our isolates and therefore continues to be the agent of choice for treating ...
|p| Infections caused by non-albicans Candida spp. are an important medical problem in people from risk groups, e.g. hematooncological patients. The aim of this paper was to analyse the in vitro activity of micafungin against 30 clinical isolates of non-albicans Candida spp. (C. glabrata, C. famata, C. tropicalis, C. inconspicua, C. lusitaniae, C. parapsilosis, C. krusei) by way of the E-test procedure, allowing determination of minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC). Data presented in this paper indicate that most of the studied clinical isolates - 27 (90%) showed sensitivity to micafungin, with MIC values ranging from 0.004 to 2 mg/l, while 3 (10%) isolates, including 2 isolates of C. tropicalis and 1 isolate of C. famata, were resistant to micafungin, with MIC values > 32 mg/l. The MIC|sub|50|/sub| and MIC|sub|90|/sub| values of micafungin, defined as MIC inhibited growth of 50% or 90% of the isolates studied, were 0.008 mg/l or 2 mg/l, respectively. In the case of C. glabrata isolates, MICs

A total of 80 Candida isolates representing 14 species were examined for their respective responses to an in vitro hemolytic test. A modification of a previously described plate assay system where the yeasts are incubated on glucose (3%)-enriched sheep blood agar in a carbon dioxide (5%)-rich environment for 48 h was used to evaluate the hemolytic activity. A group of eight Candida species which included Candida albicans (15 isolates), C. dubliniensis (2), C. kefyr (2), C. krusei (4), C. zeylanoides (1), C. glabrata (34), C. tropicalis (5), and C. lusitaniae (2) demonstrated both alpha and beta hemolysis at 48 h postinoculation. Only alpha hemolysis was detectable in four Candida species, viz., C. famata (3), C. guilliermondii (4), C. rugosa (1), and C. utilis (1), while C. parapsilosis (5) and C. pelliculosa (1) failed to demonstrate any hemolytic activity after incubation for 48 h or longer. This is the first study to demonstrate the variable expression profiles of hemolysins by different ...

In vitro susceptibility studies of the 13 clinical isolates, two control strains and one environmental isolate revealed a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) range of (0.19-1.56 μg/ml) for AmB and (1.25-10 μg/ml) for fluconazole. Pulsed-field gradient gel electrophoresis was performed to evaluate possible similarities between strains. This case is significant for several reasons, the high degree and prolonged duration of fungemia despite high-dose AmB and ...

Journal of Infection in Developing Countries. 7(9), p.670-5.. Abstract:. INTRODUCTION: Bloodstream infections due to Candida species are becoming a major cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. The spectrum of candidemia has changed with the emergence of non-albicans Candida species, especially among critically ill patients.. METHODOLOGY: In a retrospective study (July 2009 to December 2009) on candidemia, various Candida species isolated from blood cultures were characterized and studied along with the determination of their antifungal susceptibility to amphotericin B, itraconazole, and fluconazole by Etest. Probable risk factors for patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) presenting with candidemia were also analyzed.. RESULTS: During the study period, a total of 4651 samples were ...
Candida albicans is the most pathogenic Candida species but shares many phenotypic features with Candida dubliniensis and may, therefore, be misidentified in clinical microbiology laboratories. Candidemia cases due to C. dubliniensis are increasingly being reported in recent years. Accurate identification is warranted since mortality rates are highest for C. albicans infections, however, C. dubliniensis has the propensity to develop resistance against azoles more easily. We developed a duplex PCR assay for rapid detection and differentiation of C. albicans from C. dubliniensis for resource-poor settings equipped with basic PCR technology and compared its performance with three phenotypic methods. Duplex PCR was performed on 122 germ tube positive and 12 germ tube negative isolates of Candida species previously identified by assimilation profiles on Vitek 2 ID-YST system. Typical morphologic characteristics on simplified sunflower seed agar (SSA), and reaction with a commercial (Bichro-Dubli) latex
Candida is a leading cause of late-onset sepsis in premature infants and is thought to invade the host via immature or damaged epithelial barriers. We previously showed that the hyphal form of Candida albicans invades and causes damage to premature intestinal epithelial cells (pIECs), whereas the non-hyphal Candida parapsilosis, also a fungal pathogen of neonates, has less invasion and damage abilities. In this study, we investigated the potential for C. parapsilosis to modulate pathogenic interactions of C. albicans with the premature intestine. While a mixed infection with two fungal pathogens may be expected to result in additive or synergistic damage to pIECs, we instead found that C. parapsilosis was able to protect pIECs from invasion and damage by C. albicans. C. albicans-induced pIEC damage was reduced to a similar extent by multiple different C. parapsilosis strains, but strains differed in their ability to inhibit C. albicans invasion of pIECs, with the inhibitory activity correlating with

The rapid and accurate identification of pathogen yeast species is crucial for clinical diagnosis due to the high level of mortality and morbidity induced, even after antifungal therapy. For this purpose, new rapid, high-throughput and reliable identification methods are required. In this work we described a combined approach based on two high-throughput techniques in order to improve the identification of pathogenic yeast strains. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) of ITS and D1/D2 LSU marker regions together with FTIR spectroscopy were applied to identify 256 strains belonging to Candida genus isolated in nosocomial environments. Multivariate data analysis (MVA) was carried out on NGS and FT-IR data-sets, separately. Strains of Candida albicans, C. parapsilosis, C. glabrata and C. tropicalis, were identified with high-throughput NGS sequencing of ITS and LSU markers and then with FTIR. Inter- and intra-species variability was investigated by consensus principal component analysis (CPCA) which combines

TY - JOUR. T1 - Proteinase and phospholipase activity as virulence factors in Candida species isolated from blood. AU - Mohan das, Vinitha. AU - Ballal, Mamatha. PY - 2008/1/1. Y1 - 2008/1/1. N2 - The number of nosocomial blood stream infections due to Candida species has increased over the past few decades. In order to establish an infection, opportunistic pathogens have to evade the immune system, survive, divide in the host environment, and spread to other tissues. Proteinase and phospholipase secretion has been implicated as potential virulence factors for some Candida species responsible for catheter related candidemia in intensive care unit (ICU) patients with indwelling devices. We therefore have aimed at demonstrating the secretion of proteinase and phospholipase enzymes as virulent factors by Candida species isolated from blood samples collected from ICUs, dialysis units and oncology units. One hundred and fourteen isolates of Candida species were obtained from the blood samples and the ...
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. ...
Candida dubliniensis is closely related to Candida albicans, a major causative agent of candidiasis, and is primarily associated with oral colonization and infection in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients. Despite the high similarity of genomic and phenotypic features between the two species, C. dubliniensis is much less virulent and less prevalent than C. albicans. The ability to change morphological phenotypes is a striking feature of Candida species and is linked to virulence. In this study, we report a novel phenotype, the gray phenotype, in C. dubliniensis. Together with the previously reported white and opaque cell types, the gray phenotype forms a tristable phenotypic switching system in C. dubliniensis that is similar to the white-gray-opaque tristable switching system in C. albicans. Gray cells of C. dubliniensis are similar to their counterparts in C. albicans in terms of several biological aspects including cellular morphology, mating competence, and genetic ...

Candidal infections are extremely common (see the images below).{file44305}{file44306}Candida albicans is the most common cause of human candidal infections, but other pathogenic species include Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei, Candida lusitaniae, and Candida stellatoidea.
Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, and Candida parapsilosis are three prevalent causes of candidiasis, worldwide. These species are considered as nine medically important complex species. Limited knowledge about these newly recognized species prompted us to develop a one-step, multiplex PCR to detect and identify them in clinical settings.. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12879-018-3381-5. ...

N-Fuzed Candida is a revolutionary product that infuses the essence of Candida albicans into the crystalline structure of water. Using the same principle as homeopathics, like treats like, N-Fuzed Candida Quick Cleanse supports the bodys immune system in removing Candida from the blood and soft tissues while it helps to restore natural balance in the intestinal tract.* In fact, independent laboratory studies confirm that N-Fuzed Candida inhibits Candida in vitro in just 3 days. What is Candida albicans?. Candida albicans is a naturally occurring genus of yeast that lives in your intestinal tract with many other microorganisms known as probiotics. Problems happen, however, when something upsets the balance of these organisms. Candida begins to multiply and overpopulate. What typically triggers this is the use of pharmaceutical antibiotics or birth control pills. A diet dominated by processed foods, sugar, and alcohol will exasperate this condition significantly ...
Candida Albicans enters our bodies as infants during or shortly after we are born. Usually, the growth of the yeast is kept in check by our immune system, but should your immune response weaken, the condition known as oral thrush can occur as a result.. By 6 months of age, 90% of all babies test positive for Candida. And by adulthood, virtually all of us play host to Candida Albicans and are thus engaged in a life-long relationship.. Candida coexists in our bodies with many species of bacteria in a competitive balance. Other bacteria act in part to keep Candida growth in check in our body ecology - unless that balance is upset.. When you enjoy good health, your immune system keeps Candida proliferation under control; but when your immune response is weakened, Candida growth can proceed unhindered.. Candida is an opportunistic organism - BEWARE if it gets out of control!. The rapid and direct proliferation of the yeast following antibiotic use strongly suggests that the problem of Candida is ...
In fact, the antifungal susceptibility profiles and distinct virulence attributes demonstrate the differences in these nosocomial pathogens. An accurate, fast, and economical identification of fungal species has been the main goal in mycology. In the present study, we searched sequences that were available in the GenBank database in order to identify the complete sequence for the internal transcribed spacer (ITS)1-5.8S-ITS2 region, which is comprised of the forward and reverse primers ITS1 and ITS4. Subsequently, an in silico polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was performed to differentiate the C. parapsilosis complex species. Ninety-eight clinical isolates from patients with fungaemia were submitted for analysis, where 59 isolates were identified as C. parapsilosis sensu stricto, 37 were identified as C. orthopsilosis, and two were identified as C. metapsilosis. PCR-RFLP quickly and accurately identified C. parapsilosis complex species, making this ...

The structure and flexibility of Candida antarctica lipase B in water and five different organic solvent models was investigated using multiple molecular dynamics simulations to describe the effect of solvents on structure and dynamics. Interactions of the solvents with the protein and the distribution of water molecules at the protein surface were examined. The simulated structure was independent of the solvent, and had a low deviation from the crystal structure. However, the hydrophilic surface of CALB in non-polar solvents decreased by 10% in comparison to water, while the hydrophobic surface is slightly increased by 1%. There is a large influence on the flexibility depending on the dielectric constant of the solvent, with a high flexibility in water and a low flexibility in organic solvents. With decreasing dielectric constant, the number of surface bound water molecules significantly increased and a spanning water network with an increasing size was formed. The reduced flexibility of Candida

In a lipase investigation, Candida antarctica lipase B (CALB) are explored for enzyme catalytic promiscuity. Enzyme catalytic promiscuity is shown by enzymes catalyzing alternative catalytic transformations proceeding via different transition state structures than normal. CALB normally performs hydrolysis reactions by activating and coordinating carboxylic acid/ester substrates in an oxyanion hole prior to nucleophilic attack from an active-site serine resulting in acyl enzyme formation. The idea of utilizing the carbonyl activation oxyanion hole in the active-site of CALB to catalyze promiscuous reactions arose by combining catalytic and structural knowledge about the enzyme with chemical imagination. We choose to explore conjugate addition and direct epoxidation activities in CALB by combining molecular modeling and kinetic experiments. By quantum-chemical calculations, the investigated promiscuous reactions were shown to proceed via ordered reaction mechanisms that differ from the native ping ...
Reaction rates and selectivities were measured for transacylation of fatty acid esters in solvents catalysed by Candida antarctica lipase B and by cutinase from Humicola insolens. With these enzymes classical water-based enzymology can be expanded to many different solvents allowing large variations in interaction energies between the enzymes, the substrates and the surrounding. Further ,hydrolysis reactions catalysed by Bacillus subtilis esterase 2 were investigated.. Thermodynamics analyses revealed that the enzyme contribution to reaction rate acceleration compared to acid catalysis was purely entropic. On the other hand, studies of differences in activation entropy and enthalpy between enantiomers and between homologous esters showed that high substrate specificity was favoured by enthalpic stabilisation.. Solvent was found to have a profound effect on enzyme catalysis, affecting both reaction rate and selectivity. Differences in substrate solubility will impact enzyme specificity since ...

Emerging non-albicans Candida (NAC) species are a major threat because of their intrinsic or acquired resistance to routinely applied antifungal agents.The purpose of our study was to reveal in vitro activity of nine antifungal agents against NAC isolates.A total of 67 NAC (27 Candida glabrata, 10 C. tropicalis, 6 C. krusei, 6 C. parapsilosis, 4 C. lusitaniae, 4 C. lipolytica, etc.) were identified and tested. The antifungal susceptibility was estimated on the basis of minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC).Overall, 13 species were determined, of which C. glabrata was the most common (40.3%), followed by C. tropicalis (14.9%), C. krusei, and C. parapsilosis (8.9 % each). Forty-nine NAC isolates (73.13%) demonstrated decreased susceptibility to one or more antifungals, and 18 of them were resistant to all azoles. Out of 27 C. glabrata, 12 (44.4%) were resistant to fluconazole with MICs: 32 - >128 µg/mL and 15 (55.6%) were intermediate with MICs: 8 - 16 µg/mL Non-albicans Candida revealed a good
Thionins are a family of plant antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), which participate in plant defense system against pathogens. Here we describe some aspects of the CaThi thionin-like action mechanism, previously isolated from Capsicum annuum fruits. Thionin-like peptide was submitted to antimicrobial activity assays against Candida species for IC50 determination and synergism with fluconazole evaluation. Viability and plasma membrane permeabilization assays, induction of intracellular ROS production analysis and CaThi localization in yeast cells were also investigated. CaThi had strong antimicrobial activity against six tested pathogenic Candida species, with IC50 ranging from 10 to 40 μg.mL−1. CaThi antimicrobial activity on Candida species was candidacidal. Moreover, CaThi caused plasma membrane permeabilization in all yeasts tested and induces oxidative stresses only in Candida tropicalis. CaThi was intracellularly localized in C. albicans and C. tropicalis, however
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 ...

Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC), particularly the recurrent form, remains an intractable problem for clinicians, microbiologists, and patients. It is essential to confi rm the clinical diagnosis by mycological methods and avoid empirical therapy. The recovery of yeast in fungal culture, such as on Sabouraud dextrose agar, remains the gold standard for diagnosis. In this investigation, we examined 474 participants, including 122 (25.7%) with acute VVC cases, 249 (52.5%) who had recurrent VVC (RVVC) cases, and 103 (21.7%) healthy controls. We also administered a questionnaire to obtain information on patient lifestyle and medical, gynecological, and sexual history. In addition, we compared the performance of chromID Candida agar (CAN2) to CHROMagar Candida (CAC) and Sabouraud dextrose agar with gentamicin and chloramphenicol (SGC2). The yeasts were identifi ed by conventional methods including the germ tube test, microscopic morphology on cornmeal-Tween 80 agar, and the commercial API 20C AUX ...

Micafungin (MFG) demonstrates potent activity against biofilms of Candida albicans and Candida parapsilosis, the most frequent opportunistic fungal pathogens. Little is known about its immunopharmacologic effect on antibiofilm activity of phagocytic cells following exposure to Candida biofilms. In this study, we investigated the effects of MFG on human neutrophil-mediated damage of C. albicans and C. parapsilosis biofilms by XTT [2,3-bis(2-methoxy-4-nitro-5-sulfophenyl)-2H-tetrazolium-5-carboxanilide] and the potential mechanisms underlying the immunomodulatory MFG activities on cultured monocyte-derived THP-1 cells in response to these biofilms by reverse transcription-PCR and sandwich and multiplex enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Preexposure of C. albicans to subinhibitory MFG concentrations significantly enhanced neutrophil-mediated biofilm damage, an effect that appears to be species specific since a comparable effect was not observed with drug-pretreated C. parapsilosis biofilms. Human ...
An 18-month epidemiologic investigation of Candida bloodstream infections in a Singapore hospital identified 52 candidemic patients: 36% of whose infections were caused by C. tropicalis, 29% were due to C. albicans, 10% with C. parapsilosis and 21% involved C. glabrata. A predominant clonal C. tropicalis strain was demonstrated. No association with ICU stay, prior exposure to fluconazole/broad-spectrum antibiotics or increased mortality was found in this apparent shift towards non-C. albicans Candida species as the primary agents of candidemia ...
