Galactofuranose biosynthesis is important for maintaining normal growth and cell wall properties in Aspergillus nidulans
The cell wall is essential for fungal survival in natural environments. Galactofuranose (Galf) decorates certain carbohydrates and lipids of Aspergillus cell wall, is absent in humans and appears to play a role in fungal ...
Using Aspergillus nidulans to study alpha-1,3-glucan synthesis and the resistance mechanism against cell wall targeting drugs
Systemic fungal infection is a life-threatening problem. Anti-fungal drugs are the most effective clinical strategy to cure such infections. However, most current anti-fungal drugs either have high toxicity or have a narrow ...
