Abstract

The presence of specific binding sites for [125I]-labelled hLH and hCG is described in Candida species. Binding was present in three strains of Candida albicans, and in Candida tropicalis, and was greatest in microsomes, though binding was also present in cytosol fractions. hLH and hCG mutually competed for these binding sites. Other hormones did not bind and did not compete for hLH binding sites. Scatchard plots showed two classes of binding sites, one with high affinity, low capacity and the other with lower affinity, high capacity binding in both microsomes and cytosol. This is the first report of specific binding sites for mammalian peptide hormones in a yeast.
