The pathogen Candida albicans can occupy both the bloodstream and gastrointesintal (GI) tract, niches that differ in iron availability. Chen et al. report that a distinct transcription factor, Sef1, alters the conserved fungal iron regulatory paradigm. Sef1 is pivotal for bloodstream infection, but contributes to GI tract colonization as well.
