Abstract

A Candida albicans efg1 cph1 double mutant is nonfilamentous under standard laboratory conditions and avirulent in mice. However, this mutant produced filaments in the tongues of immunosuppressed gnotobiotic piglets and when embedded in agar, demonstrating that an Efg1p- and Cph1p-independent pathway for promotion of filamentous growth exists.
