Candida parapsilosis Characterization in an Outbreak Setting
Figure 3. Adherence properties of Candida parapsilosis clinical isolates. Graph shows adhesion ability of various C. parapsilosis strains, compared to strain 167 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Results were normalized to strain 167, which was taken as 100%. Each result is representative of at least two experiments. Error bars represent standard deviation. *p < 0.001 for comparison of values of strain 167 vs. strains 313 and 385; all other comparisons had p values > 0.05.
