Abstract: Abstract Candida albicans is a frequent aetiologic agent of sepsis associated with high mortality in immunocompromised patients. Developing new antifungal therapies is a medical need due to the low efficiency and resistance to current antifungal drugs. Here, we show that p38γ and p38δ regulate the innate immune response to C. albicans. We describe a new TAK1‐TPL2‐MKK1‐ERK1/2 pathway in macrophages, which is activated by Dectin‐1 engagement and positively regulated by p38γ/p38δ. In mice, p38γ/p38δ deficiency pr…
