As the main nitrogen source in Malassezia furfur, tryptophan induces the formation of fluorochromes and pigments, which make the yeast less sensitive to UV light. To detect a chemical UV filter, M. furfur (CBS 1878) was incubated at 30ºC for 14 days on a pigment-inducing medium and agar extracts were purified by column chromatography, preparative TLC and(More)
Pityriasis versicolor is the most common skin mycosis in humans worldwide. Yeasts of the genus Malassezia, particularly M. furfur, a saprophyte occurring widely on human skin, are generally regarded as the causative agents. Pityriasis versicolor is often accompanied by a long-lasting depigmentation that persists even after successful antimycotic therapy. M.(More)
Pityriasis versicolor is the most common skin mycosis in humans worldwide. Yeasts of the genus Malassezia, particularly M. furfur, a saprophyte occurring widely on human skin, are generally regarded as the causative agents. M. furfur is able to convert tryptophan into a variety of indole alkaloids, some of them showing biological properties that correlate(More)
As the main nitrogen source in Malassezia (M.) furfur, tryptophan induces the formation of fluorochromes and pigments, which makes the yeast less sensitive towards UV light. For the investigation of the fluorochromes, M. furfur (CBS1878) was incubated at 32 °C for 14 days on a pigment-inducing medium, and the agar extract was purified by column(More)
