Methods for regulating bud-hypha transitions and cAMP levels by the adenylate cyclase-associated protein gene, CAP1

Image Number 12 for United States Patent #6706688.

The infection of a mammalian host by a microorganism can be prevented or treated through the disruption of the C. albicans homologue of adenylate cyclase-associated protein gene. These methods may be used in the identification, prevention or treatment of microbial infection of mammalian hosts such as immunocompromised or immunosuppressed humans, for example, those having AIDS or undergoing transplantation or anti-cancer therapy.
