Figure 6: Effect of C. albicans parental (DIC185) and hxk1Δ mutant (hxk1/hxk1) strains on the viability of PK E6/E7 vaginal epithelial cells. Cell index (CI) was measured using the RTCA method by xCELLigence System. CI was plotted as a function of time postinfection. Different numbers of yeast form C. albicans were used as inoculum: (a) 2000 cells/well, (b) 5000 cells/well, (c) 10000 cells/well, and (d) 20000 cells/well.
