Phenethyl alcohol and tryptophol: autoantibiotics produced by the fungus Candida albicans

, : Phenethyl alcohol and tryptophol: autoantibiotics produced by the fungus Candida albicans. Science 163(3863): 192-194

Two autoantibiotics produced by the fungus Candida albicans have been identified, with the aid of mass spectrometry, as 2-phenylethanol and 3-beta-hydroxyethylindole. The cyclodipeptides, cyclo(proline-leucine) and cyclo(proline-phenylalanine) were also isolated from cultures of Candida albicans, but did not inhibit the growth of the fungus.

Recent studies point to a key role for the estrogen synthesizing enzyme P450 aromatase (P450 arom) in ovary determination in fish, birds and reptiles. It is unclear whether estrogen synthesis is important in sex determination of Xenopus gonad. To...
