Candida orthopsilosis and Candida metapsilosis are closely related to Candida parapsilosis, a major cause of infection in premature neonates. Mating has not been observed in these species. We show that ∼190 isolates of C. parapsilosis contain only an MTLa idiomorph at the mating-type-like locus. Here, we describe the isolation and characterization of the(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine if exogenous cholesterol availability influenced Pythiaceae resistance to antibiosis. Characterisation of an isolate of Phytophthora erythroseptica and Pythium ultimum for tolerance to antibacterial compounds found that 0.05 g.l−1 chloramphenicol inhibited mycelial growth by 96.6 % and 23.5 % respectively. However,(More)
Soil microorganisms are key contributors to nutrient cycling and are essential for the maintenance of healthy soils and sustainable agriculture. Although the antimicrobial effects of a broad range of nanoparticulate substances have been characterised in vitro, little is known about the impact of these compounds on microbial communities in environments such(More)
