Caspofungin modifies candida and saccharomyces cell wall
What is it about?
The paper is about the cell wall of 2 yeasts species: Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We explored the cell modifications induced by the antifungal drug: Caspofungin.
Why is it important?
Candida albicans is a widespread opportunistic pathogen, that can be dangerous to immunodeficient patients. Understanding the mechanism of action of Caspofungin, a last chance molecule, is therefore of first importance
