Abstract

The authors developed a new, simple, and reliable PCR/restriction fragment length polymorphism technique, using amplification of the hyphal wall protein 1 gene of Candida albicans and its gene homologue in Candida dubliniensis, to differentiate the two species of Candida. Performed with a new primer set, CRR-f/CRR-r, PCR produced two different fragments: one of 1,180 bp for C. albicans, and one of 930 bp for C. dubliniensis.
