  1. *P < 0.05, **CE: Crude Extract of Eugenia uniflora (2000 μg/mL).
  2. Cells were either pre-cultivated in NGY broth in the absence (control experiments) or presence of 2000 μg/ml (test experiments) of the CE of Eugenia uniflora for 24 h, 200 rpm, 30°C of incubation, previously to the filamentation induction experiments. One hundred cells of each strain were scored.
