Part Description

LP145687-2   Candida tropicalis
Candida tropicalis is a significant species of Candida with regard to its epidemiology and virulence. It produces a number of virulence factors including biofilm, adhesion to buccal epithelial and endothelial cells, the secretion of lytic enzymes, bud-to-hyphae transition, and phenotypic switching. In Asia and Latin America, C tropicalis is the second or third most common species of Candida to cause systemic disease. It is able to survive in high salt concentrations, that is significant for fungal persistence in saline environments. C tropicalis is resistant to several antifungal drugs currently in use including the azole derivatives, amphotericin B, and the echinocandins. It exists as a true hyphae and diploid yeast that cannot be distinguished from other Candida species on Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA). It is capable of fermenting galactose, sucrose, maltose, and trehalose. [PMID: 29081766] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
