Nowadays,the theory of independent live of microorganisms has been generally denied.In order to adapt to environmental changes,information communication between microbial cells leads to changes in their physiological and biochemical characteristics,such as the morphology of bacteria,the formation of biofilm and toxin secretion.The communication is called quorum sensing.This complex form of communication was first found in bacteria,and later in eukaryotes(fungi).Candida albicans is one of the earliest reported fungi with quorum sensing system.Many quorum sensing molecules have been identified in various fungi.There are many reports on the quorum sensing and mechanisms of Candida albicans.The main quorum sensing molecules and their regulatory mechanism are found.In this review,we focus on the discovery and the physiological effects of quorum sensing molecules in Candida albicans. We also summarized the quorum sensing phenomenon and quorum sensing molecules in other fungi.Finally,we make a prediction to the future of quorum sensing and their potential applications.
