Abstract

Two regulatory pathways govern filamentation in the pathogenic fungus Candida albicans. Recent virulence studies of filamentation regulatory mutants argue that both yeast and filamentous forms have roles in infection. Filamentation control pathways seem closely related in C. albicans and in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, thus permitting speculation about C. albicans filamentation genes not yet discovered.
