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

<p>(A) <i>S. cerevisiae </i><i>GRE3</i> (CA255), and (B) <i>S. cerevisiae </i><i>SOR1</i> (CDH139) complement the <i>C. albicans </i><i>gre3</i> and <i>xyl2</i> 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.</p>
