Colonization with Candida is usually asymptomatic. However, if mucosal barriers are disrupted or defences lowered, it can cause infections ranging from non-life threatening superficial mucocutaneous disorders to invasive disseminated disease involving multiple organs. Oral candidiasis is most commonly caused (...) by Candida albicans . There are different types of oral candidiasis, including pseudomembranous candidiasis (often called oral thrush [which commonly affects neonates]), denture stomatitis (which commonly affects denture wearers), and chronic plaque-like candidiasis (which commonly occurs in men older than 30 years of age, and smokers).

120. A URA3 null mutant of Candida albicans (CAI-4) causes oro-oesophageal and gastric candidiasis and is lethal for gnotobiotic, transgenic mice (Tg{epsilon}26) that are deficient in both natural killer and T cells. (PubMed)

A URA3 null mutant of Candida albicans (CAI-4) causes oro-oesophageal and gastric candidiasis and is lethal for gnotobiotic, transgenic mice (Tg{epsilon}26) that are deficient in both natural killer and T cells. Current data suggest that functional URA3 genes are necessary for the full pathogenesis of Candida albicans. Herein it is shown that a putatively avirulent URA3/URA3 null mutant of C. albicans (CAI-4) can colonize the murine alimentary tract, invade oro-oesophageal and gastric tissues (...) with yeasts and hyphae, evoke a granulocyte-dominated inflammatory response, and kill transgenic mice that are deficient for both natural killer cells and T cells. Because C. albicans-colonized (gnotobiotic) mice lack a viable prokaryotic microbiota, this study also demonstrates that the gut microbiome is not required to supply the mutant's nutritional needs. The gnotobiotic murine model described herein can be used to assess the capacity of C. albicans mutants to colonize and infect cutaneous, mucosal
