ConclusionsOur results indicated that the most active combinations of these species extracts could be useful in the treatment of vaginal infectious diseases caused by Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida spp. strains and in associated oxidative and inflammatory processes, supporting its traditional use. In addition, the results highlighted the phyto-therapeutic potential of total phytochemical compounds present in these medicinal plants.Graphical abstract

Gonçalves, Roberto Fernández-LafuenteAbstractA strategy to obtain biocatalysts formed by three enzyme layers has been designed using lipases A and B from Candida antarctica (CALA and CALB), the lipases from Rhizomucor miehei (RML) and Thermomyces lanuginosus (TLL), and the artificial chimeric phospholipase Lecitase Ultra (LEU). The enzymes were initially immobilized via interfacial activation on octyl-agarose beads, treated with po...

ConclusionOur results showed that JZ-1 protects against HSV-2 infection, and this beneficial effect may be mediated by inducing autophagy via inhibition of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling axis.Graphical abstract

Candida albicans is the most common fungal pathogen and relies on the Hog1-MAPK pathway to resist osmotic stress posed by the environment or during host invasions. Here, we investigated the role of SPT20 in response to osmotic stress. Testing a C. albicans spt20Δ/Δ mutant, we found it was sensitive to osmotic stress. Using sequence alignment, we identified the conserved functional domains between CaSpt20 and ScSpt20. Reconstitution of the Spt20 function in a spt20Δ/CaSPT20 complemented strain found CaSPT20 can suppress the high sensitivity to hyperosmotic stressors, a cell wall stress agent, and antifunga...

In conclusion, the current work on KR-12 suggests that dimerization together with backbone cyclization is an effective strategy for improving both potency and stability of linear antimicrobial peptides.

Had a weird case a couple of weeks ago. My partner, who is an outstanding technical surgeon for implants (one of the best I have seen) had a stim follow up while he was on vacation. The wounds were dehiscing and the incisions looked odd (my partner has had only two infections over a 25 year career, so he is pretty damn good). I took her to the OR and removed the stim, packing the incisions open. Initial cultures were negative, but eventually grew candida. This patient was a diabetic with a... candida fungal infection with stimulator

Candida albicans is a leading cause of systemic bloodstream infections, and synthesis of the phospholipid phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) is required for virulence. The psd1/ psd2/ mutant, which cannot synthesize PE by the cytidine diphosphate diacylglycerol (CDP-DAG) pathway, is avirulent in the mouse model of systemic candidiasis. Similarly, an ept1/ mutant, which cannot produce PE by the Kennedy pathway, exhibits decreased kidney fungal burden in systemically infected mice. Conversely, overexpression of EPT1 results in a hypervirulent phenotype in this model. Thus, mutations that increase PE synthesis increase virulence, ...

Abstract The main aim of this short review was to assess the effect of test medium on the bioavailability of metals to the soil invertebrate Folsomia candida and the barley plant Hordeum vulgare. Solution-only exposures and sand-solution media were suitable media with control survival of > 80%. Comparing toxicity and accumulation data, LC50 and/or EC50 values as well as internal concentrations of cadmium (Cd) and copper (Cu) were similar in the tests with different porewater composition for springtails and barley plants. Similar results for toxicity and bioaccumulation of Cd and Cu using different...
