Interaction of FK520 with multidrug transporter of Candida

Interaction of FK520 with multidrug transporter of Candida

This paper describes an in depth molecular analysis of the Cdr1 protein, a major ABC multidrug transporters of the yeast Candida albicans. This study nicely relates structural features of the protein to its function and the synergy with fungicidal drugs.

About the Editor - Guenther Daum

Guenther Daum

Günther Daum studied Chemistry, Biochemistry and Biotechnology at the Graz University of Technology, Austria. The main subjects studied in Günther Daum’s laboratory are synthesis and intracellular dynamics of lipids in the yeast with a focus on lipid assembly into organelle membranes and lipid storage using methods of biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology. For his scientific work he received the Normann Medal of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Fettforschung (German Society of Lipid Research) in 2011.
