C. albicans transition from blastospore to hyphal form following contact with CSC. C. albicans was cultured with or without CSC at various concentrations for 3 or 6 h at 37°C in a culture medium supplemented with 10% serum. Following each time point, the cultures were observed under an inverted microscope and photographed (panel (a)). Hyphal tube length was measured by means of NIH-ImageJ software () and presented (panel (b)). Significance was obtained by comparing the CSC-pretreated and untreated C. albicans.
