Raposo, Colin J.


  • Infection by Candida glabrata is reliant on a suite of cell surface adhesins that play a variety of roles necessary for transmission, establishment, and proliferation of C. glabrata infection. One particular adhesin, Epithelial Adhesin 1 (Epa1p), is responsible for binding to host tissue and biofilm formation, which is essential for fungal propagation.
