Abstract

In this issue, Xu et al. (2008) report that Candida albicans, a prevalent fungal pathogen, expresses virulence-related attributes in response to bacterial peptidoglycan components, muramyl dipeptides, in human serum. Conserved elements in human and fungal detection of muramyl dipeptides highlight a common ability to perceive proximal bacterial populations. © 2008 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
