    • Adhesins in Candida glabrata 

      Timmermans, Bea; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro; Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz; Van Dijck, Patrick (MDPI AG, 2018)
      "The human fungal pathogen Candida glabrata is causing more and more problems in hospitals, as this species shows an intrinsic antifungal drug resistance or rapidly becomes resistant when challenged with antifungals. C. ...
    • Candida albicans oligonucleotides, detection method, and kit thereof 

      Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro (2015-06)
      "The invention discloses an in vitro method for the identification of Candida albicans, the sequences associated to said identification, as well as diagnosis kits for identifying Candida albicans."
    • Candida glabrata encodes a longer variant of the mating type (MAT) alpha2 gene in the mating type-like MTL3 locus, which can form homodimers 

      Robledo Márquez, Karina Asyade; Gutiérrez Escobedo, Ma Guadalupe; Yáñez Carrillo, Patricia; Vidal Aguiar, Yamile; Briones Martín del Campo, Marcela Cecilia; Orta Zavalza, Emmanuel; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro; Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz (Oxford University Press, 2016)
      "The fungal pathogen Candida glabrata is a haploid asexual yeast. Candida glabrata contains orthologs of the genes that control mating and cell-type identity in other fungi, which encode putative transcription factors ...
    • Candida glabrata’s genome plasticity confers a unique pattern of expressed cell wall proteins 

      López-Fuentes, Eunice; Gutiérrez Escobedo, Ma Guadalupe; Timmermans, Bea; Van Dijck, Patrick; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro; Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz (MDPI AG, 2018)
      "Candida glabrata is the second most common cause of candidemia, and its ability to adhere to different host cell types, to microorganisms, and to medical devices are important virulence factors. Here, we consider three ...
    • Candida parapsilosis oligonucleotides, detection method, and kit thereof 

      Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro (2010-04)
      "The invention discloses an in vitro method for the identification of Candida parapsilosis, the sequences associated to said identification, as well as diagnosis kits for identifying Candida parapsilosis."
    • Candida tropicalis oligonucleotides, detection method, and kit thereof 

      Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro (2010-05)
      "The invention discloses an in vitro method for the identification of Candida tropicalis, the sequences associated to said identification, as well as diagnosis kits for identifying Candida tropicalis."
    • Chromatin loop formation induced by a subtelomeric protosilencer represses EPA genes in Candida glabrata 

      López-Fuentes, Eunice; Hernández Hernández, Grecia; Castanedo Ibarra, Leonardo; Gutiérrez Escobedo, Ma Guadalupe; Oktaba, Katarzyna; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro; Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz (Genetics Society of America, 2018)
      "Adherence, an important virulence factor, is mediated by the EPA (Epithelial Adhesin) genes in the opportunistic pathogen Candida glabrata. Expression of adhesin-encoding genes requires tight regulation to respond to harsh ...
    • Método in vitro para la detección de Candida glabrata, Kit de diagnóstico y uso de los mismos 

      Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz; Cuéllar-Cruz, Mayra; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro (2015-09)
      "La presente invención describe y reclama un método in vitro para la identificación de Candida glabrata, las secuencias asociadas a dicha identificación, así como kits de diagnóstico para identificar a C. glabrata y el uso ...
    • Molecular characterization of the silencing complex SIR in Candida glabrata hyperadherent clinical isolates 

      Leiva Peláez, Osney; Gutiérrez Escobedo, Ma Guadalupe; López-Fuentes, Eunice; Cruz Mora, José; De Las Peñas Nava, Alejandro; Castaño Navarro, Irene Beatriz (Elsevier, 2018)
      "An important virulence factor for the fungal pathogen Candida glabrata is the ability to adhere to the host cells, which is mediated by the expression of adhesins. Epa1 is responsible for ?95% of the in vitro adherence ...
