Sažetak
In this study, the low molecular weight lypophilic metabolites of C.albicans and C. dubliniensis strains produced in a synthetic medium with the addition of fetal calf serum were identified using LC/MS and MS/MS technique and quantified. All strains investigated produce a metabolite with a UV spectra maximum at 224 and 279 nm and minimum at 243 nm. Following comparison with ESI, MS/MS spectral data of a reference compound, the metabolite was identified as 3-indoleethanol (tryptophol). The concentration of extracellular tryptophol in the biosynthesis of C. albicans and C. dubliniensis ranged from 2.45 μ g/mL to 191 μ g/mL, respectively. Contrary to previously published data, gliotoxin or gliotoxin-like compounds were not detected, and all investigated C. albicans and C. dubliniensis strains have the same metabolite profile. Cytotoxic effects of tryptophol and 3- indolelactic acid (precursor of tryptophol biosynthesis) were cell-line-dependent. The EC50 of tryptophol ranged between 2 and 7 mM, with the EC50 of 3-indolelactic acid approximately double (between 4 and 8 mM). Tryptophol exhibited cell-type dependent cytotoxicity in relatively high concentrations, with domination of apoptosis.
