Secretion of hydrolytic enzymes is a known factor that facilitates pathogenic fungi to invade tissues.
The fungus is believed to produce hydrolytic enzymes such as proteases, collagenase, and chitinase which may be involved in nematode cuticle penetration and host cell degradation (Tunlid et al.
As a concluding remark, we suggest that the overall hydrolytic enzyme activities as well as arginine ammonification were enhanced due to endophyte infection, even though the genotypes were responded dissimilarly.
12-14) When high cell density is reached, these auto indicing molecules accumulate above a certain threshold level, activating and/or repressing certain genes which subsequently induces a complex cellular behavior like secretion of hydrolytic enzymes, bioluminescence, plasmid transfer, antibiotic synthesis, biofilm development and morphological switches.

Candida species produce different virulence factors that contribute to colonization, pathogenicity and infection of tissues, including the adhesion to host epithelial cells and biomaterials, the formation of germ tubes and hyphae, the production of hydrolytic enzymes such as proteinases and phospholipases, and hemolytic capacity.

Research has shown that, compared with other pregnant women, women with BV who have Mobiluncus morphotypes on gram stain are more likely to be symptomatic, have higher numbers of clue cells and positive "whiff" tests, and have vaginal immune and hydrolytic enzyme profiles, which are associated with a greater risk of preterm birth, Dr.
