Clinico-mycological profile of superficial mycosis and the relationship Of ABO blood grouping with superficial mycosis

A total of 456 clinically diagnosed cases (170 male and 286 female) of superficial mycosis was conducted. Highest incidence of cutaneous candidiasis followed by pityriasis versicolor was found. The maximum incidence of superficial mycosis was found in adult females with cutaneous candidiasis then pityriasis versicolor in both sexes (females 83 and males 80). In this study, the most common isolate was Trichophyton...

Expression of neuronal protein Tau in Candida albicans

Candida albicans is a dimorphic, opportunist fungal pathogen in which cell adhesion and filamentation contribute to host tissue invasiveness and fungal pathogenicity. Morphogenesis in C. albicans which involves yeast to hyphae transition is dependent on temperature, the growth media composition, and is regulated by quorum sensing. In yeasts, filament formation and polarized growth are associated with the actin...
