Figure 2: Susceptibility of CSC-treated C. albicans to a cell surface-disrupting oxidative, osmotic, and thermal stress agents. Cells were treated or not with CSC then washed and suspended in H2O2, NaCl, or heat (45°C) for 60 min and then washed and spotted onto Sabouraud agar. Note the increased sensitivity of the CSC-treated C. albicans to 5 and 10 mM of H2O2, but the increased resistance was to osmotic and thermal stresses.
