Cigarette Smoke-Exposed Candida albicans Increased Chitin Production and Modulated Human Fibroblast Cell Responses

Figure 4

Osmotic and heat stresses increased the growth of CSC-pretreated C. albicans. CSC-pretreated C. albicans was washed and 106 cells/mL were incubated with NaCl (1.2 M) or at 45°C for 1 h. The cells were then washed twice with warm medium and used to ascertain cell viability by MTT assay (). Significance was determined by comparing the CSC-pretreated and untreated C. albicans.
