Activation of MKP1 and c-Fos signaling by <i>C. albicans</i> Δ<i>als</i> mutants.

<p><i>C. albicans</i> yeasts were added to TR146 oral epithelial cell monolayers and incubated under standard conditions for 2 h. Results from a fungal:epithelial cell MOI of 10 are shown here. Epithelial cell lysates were separated by SDS-PAGE and Western blotted to detect MKP1, c-Fos or α-actin (positive control). Data are representative of four independent experiments. There was no difference in MKP1 or c-Fos between control <i>C. albicans</i> strains (SC5314 and CAI4) and the Δ<i>als</i> mutants.</p>
