Sensitivity of Candida albicans biofilm cells grown on denture acrylic to antifungal proteins and chlorhexidine
Candida albicans cells in a biofilm are resistant to many antifungal agents, however their sensitivity to natural antifungal peptides is unknown. Salivary histatins (Hsts) and defensins (hBDs) are naturally-occurring ...
Identification of translocation mechanisms of Histatin 5 into Candida albicans
Histatin 5 (Hst 5) is Salivary gland secreted cationic peptide which has a potent anti-fungal activity against Candida albicans at physiological concentrations. Its fungicidal mechanisms are initiated by cell surface docking ...
