Catalase Activity Assay in Candida glabrata
Commensal and pathogenic fungi are exposed to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) produced by macrophages of the host. Pathogenic fungi counteract the harmful effects of H2O2 with the enzyme catalase (EC, ...

In vitro Cell Wall Stress Assay for Fusarium oxysporum
Authors:  Elena Pérez-Nadales and Antonio Di Pietro, date: 09/05/2016, view: 3439, Q&A: 0
In this protocol we describe a cell wall stress assay for the fungal pathogen F. oxysporum, based on exposure to the two anionic dyes Calcofluor White (CFW) and Congo Red (CR). Both compounds have been used to exert stress upon the fungal ...
