The xylose reductase and xylitol dehydrogenase genes from S. cerevisiae complement C. albicans deletion mutants of the equivalent genes.

(A) S. cerevisiae GRE3 (CA255), and (B) S. cerevisiae SOR1 (CDH139) complement the C. albicans gre3 and xyl2 deletion mutants respectively. Strains were grown aerobically at 30°C in 2% xylose (SX) or 2% xylitol (ST). The optical density was measured over a period of 14 days, n=3.
