Figure 10: Effects of chitosan on C. albicans ATCC 10231 respiration under different conditions. Cells (25 mg, wet weight) were added to 10 mM MES-TEA buffer, pH 6.0, and 20 mM glucose in a final volume of 5.0 mL. Chitosan (μg) was added at the indicated times and concentrations (a). In (b), a similar experiment was performed in the presence of 20 mM potassium phosphate, 1.4 mM NAD+, 1.8 mM ATP, and 5 mM MgCl2.
