Zebrafish as a novel model host for morphological and undiscovered immunl characteristics of in vivo Candida albicans biofilms KU Leuven
In nature, most microorganisms exist predominantly as a community of cells, called a
biofilm, where they adhere to and live on various surfaces. Cells present in such a
biofilm acquire different characteristics compared to planktonic cells, such as altered
survival, growth and virulence. The human fungal pathogen Candida albicans is also
well-known for its ability to form biofilms, both on mucosal surfaces as ...
