Chemotaxis of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis toward free integumental sugars. The sugars α-d-mannose (Man), α-d-galactose (Gal), α-l-fucose (Fuc), β-d-N-acetylglucosamine (GluNAc), α-d-N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc), N-acetylneuraminic acid (NeuNAc) or sialic acid were tested as attractans at a 0.1 M concentration, using a traditional capillary tube test. Water was used as vehicle and controle attractans. Genomic equivalents (GE) of B. dendrobatidis zoospores in the capillaries were quantified after a 90 min using quantitative real-time PCR. Mean ± standard error of three independent experiments are presented
