  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).
