Candida pathogenesis: unravelling the threads of infection

Curr Biol. 1997 Nov 1;7(11):R691-4. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(06)00357-5.

Abstract

Recent studies are beginning to delineate those pathways by which the important pathogen Candida albicans switches from one growth form to another; at the same time, insights are being gained into the importance of growth form in pathogenesis.
