Scanning electron microscopy images of C. lusitaniae
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images of C. lusitaniae on filament-inducing media. Cells grown on V8 (pH = 7) media for 7 days at 37°C were processed for SEM, and imaged (see Materials and Methods from Zhang et al., 2012). Scale bars for upper panel (1000x) and lower panel (5000x) images represent 10 µm and 2 µm, respectively. WT (ATCC42720), cnb1 mutant (YC198), and crz1 mutant (YC187). Image made available by Zhang et al., 2012

Clavispora lusitaniae is a member of the Saccharomycotina sequenced by Butler et al., 2014. It can be a human pathogen, and has developed resistance to Amphotericin-B, a common anti-fungal to treat fungal infections (Krcmery and Barnes, 2002). C. lusitaniae belongs to the CUG clade, which substitute serine for leucine at CUG codons. C. lusitaniae was imported into mycocosm for comparative purposes.
