Morphogenesis in Candida albicans.

Abstract

This review will survey environmental controls on the morphology of Candida albicans, describe the cellular and ultrastructural events associated with morphological transitions in this fungus, and attempt to relate biochemical phenomena that have been reported to be associated with dimorphic change to C. albicans cell biology. The synthesis of the cell wall of C. albicans and its control remain largely undiscovered, but it is clear that the cell wall is the principal component involved in shape determination. Possible models for C. albicans dimorphism will be critically reviewed.
