Morphological specificity of yeast and filamentous Candida albicans forms on surface properties

Abstract : Physicochemical surface properties of Candida albicans were assessed from microbial adhesion to human epithelial cells and to octane droplets. The adherence of cells demonstrated the occurrence of morphological specificity for these adhesion assays. Filamentous forms exhibited adherence third times higher compared to budding forms, while their electrophoretic mobilities were comparable. Force measurements performed on filamentous form by AFM demonstrated that such adhesion was associated with microfibrillar surface structure. To cite this article: A.
