What seems obvious for most free-living bacteria, also appeals for yeast and filamentous fungi: their natural reservoirs include a variety
of micropredators, such as members of the Amoebozoa kingdom. Not
only do they share a predatory lifestyle, but their amoeboid motility
and way of ingesting living microbial food reveals several similarities
to innate immune cells. Understanding how fungi have learned to
cope with such environmental phagocytes will shed new light on the
evolutionary driving forces of fungal diversity and virulence.
