  • ‘Acridines’ as New Horizons in Antifungal Treatment

    - MOLECULES - Year 2020

    Frequent fungal infections in immunocompromised patients and mortality due to invasive mycosis are important clinical problems. Opportunistic pathogenic Candida species remain one of the leading causes of systemic mycosis worldwide. The repertoire of antifungal chemotherapeutic agents is very limited. Although new antifungal drugs such as lanosterol 14α-demethylase and β-glucan synthase inhibitors have been introduced into clinical...

  • Characterization of two aminotransferases from Candida albicans

    Aminoadipate aminotransferase (AmAA) is an enzyme of α-aminoadipate pathway (AAP) for l-lysine biosynthesis. AmAA may also participated in biosynthesis or degradation of aromatic amino acids and in d-tryptophan based pigment production. The AAP is unique for fungal microorganisms. Enzymes involved in this pathway have specific structures and properties. These features can be used as potential molecular markers. Enzymes catalyzing...

  • Inhibitors of amino acids biosynthesis as antifungal agents

    Fungal microorganisms, including the human pathogenic yeast and filamentous fungi, are able to synthesize all proteinogenic amino acids, including nine that are essential for humans. A number of enzymes catalyzing particular steps of human-essential amino acid biosynthesis are fungi specific. Numerous studies have shown that auxotrophic mutants of human pathogenic fungi impaired in biosynthesis of particular amino acids exhibit...

  • Phenotypic consequences of LYS4 gene disruption in Candida albicans

    - YEAST - Year 2014

    A BLAST search of the Candida Genome Database with the Saccharomyces cerevisiae LYS4 sequence known to encode homoaconitase (HA) revealed ORFs 19.3846 and 19.11327. Both alleles of the LYS4 gene were sequentially disrupted in Candida albicans BWP17 cells using PCR-based methodology. The null lys4Δ mutant exhibited lysine auxotrophy in minimal medium but was able to grow in the presence of L-Lys and α-aminoadipate, an intermediate...

  • Disruption of homocitrate synthase genes in Candida albicans affects growth but not virulence

    - Year 2010

    Dwa geny, LYS21 i LYS22, kodujące izoformy syntazy homocytrynianowej, enzymu katalizującego pierwszy wyjątkowy etap w szlaku biosyntezy lizyny, zostały rozbite z komórkach Candida albicans z wykorzystaniem strategii ''SAT flipper''. Podwójny mutant lys21delta/lys22delta nie wykazywał aktywności syntazy homocytrynianowej, natomiast charakteryzował się auksotrofią wzrostową wobec lizyny w podłożach minimalnych, co można było odwrócić...

  • Enzymes of the lysine biosynthetic pathway as targets for antifungals ?

    Systemic infections caused by human pathogenic fungi in immunocompromized patients continue to be one of the important clinical problems. Limited availability of safe and efficacious antifungal chemotherapeutics and emerging resistance to existing drugs stimulates search for novel molecular targets for antifungals. The α-aminoadipate pathway (AAP) of L-lysine biosynthesis is unique in fungi and thus has been so far considered...

  • Enzymes of UDP-GlcNAc biosynthesis in yeast

    D-glukozamina stanowi ważny składnik budulcowy głównych elementów strukturalnych grzybowej ściany komórkowej: chityny, chitozanu i mannoprotein. Inne aminocukry, takie jak D-mannozamina i D-galaktozamina, stosunkowo powszechne w komórkach wyższych organizmów eukariotycznych, rzadko występują u grzybów i są praktycznie nieobecne w komórkach drożdży i drożdżaków. Zawierający glukozaminę nukleotyd cukrowy UDP-GlcNAc jest syntezowany...
