memorize

Section 3

Question Answer
Subcellular structure of FungiPolysaccharide capsule, cell wall, cell membrane, cytoplasm
Purpose of capsule Antiphagocytic (virulence factor)
Cell wall made up of Chitin, glucans, mannans
Purpose of cell wall provides shape, rigidity, strength
Cell membrane made up of phospholipid bilayer and ergestrol
Purpose of cell membrane Protects cytoplasm, facilitates capsule/cell wall synthesis
memorize

Section 4

Question Answer
Examples of Polyenes Amphotericin B, Nystatin
Mechanism of Amphotericin B interacts with ergosterol to form a pore
Mechanism of Azoles Inhibit ergestrol synthesis
Mechanism of Echinocandins Inhibits synthesis of B-glucans by inhibiting the synthase
Examples of Echinocandins Caspfungin
Mechanism of Flucytosine Inhibits pyrimidine synthesis
