The expression of the mRNA encoding galanin message-associated peptide (GMAP) in human keratinocytes is upregulated by lipopolysaccharides and exposure to Candida albicans. GMAP has growth-inhibiting activity against C albicans and inhibits the budded-to-hyphal-form transition, establishing GMAP as a possible new component of the innate immune system.
