RevoDx Candida Spp
Candida spp. is the most common cause of fungal infections, leading to a range of life-threatening invasive to non-life-threatening mucocutaneous diseases. The ability of these yeasts has a profound effect on their capacity to cause human disease. Infection occurs in 60% of these cases, with Candida spp. Candida is transmitted by direct or indirect contact with contaminated people or objects. If a patient’s immune system is weakened after surgery or chemotherapy, for example as a result of a disease, Candida becomes a pathogen.
The Candida genome is very plastic, with variable karyotype. It contains 8 chromosome pairs, 7 of which have a constant size and one of which is polymorphic (R), with a size ranging from 3.2 to 4.0 Mb. The presence of tandemly arrayed genes for the ribosomal RNAs accounts for this size variation.
