Table 3 Gene expression (3 h) under non-hyphae inducing culture conditions

From: C. albicansgrowth, transition, biofilm formation, and gene expression modulation by antimicrobial decapeptide KSL-W

Gene Untreated C. albicans Amphotericin B KSL-W 25 μg/ml KSL-W 100 μg/ml
Fold change1 Fold change1 p-value2 Fold change1 p-value2 Fold change1 p-value2
EFG1 1.00 5.71 <0.001 2.76 <0.001 1.98 0.073
NRG1 1.00 10.99 <0.001 1.77 <0.001 1.4 0.086
  1. 1Fold change was calculated by PCR product of the gene of interest/the PCR product of ACT1 (the house keeping gene), and normalized to the negative control of untreated C. albicans where the expression was considered equal to 1.
  2. 2P-values were obtained after comparison of test to negative control (untreated C. albicans).
