Abstract

The gene for the beta-(1,3) exoglucanase of Candida albicans was used as a probe to detect transcripts of related genes in C. albicans and in several other Candida species. A single homologous transcript was detected in all of the species tested. Expression of the exoglucanase gene in C. albicans was found to be coincident with the onset of growth and the levels of the transcript were proportional to the growth rate. Comparable levels of the transcript were produced during yeast and hyphal forms of growth.
