OBJECTIVE To characterize the molecular and phenotypic traits of the VGII genotype of Cryptococcus gattii isolate XH91 firstly isolated in China. METHODS The serotype was identified by molecular method; multi-locus sequence typing (MLST) was performed based on 16 gene fragments both of nuclear and mitochondria genomes; the abilities of haploid fruiting, same-sex mating and opposite sex mating were all evaluated; the phenotypic traits including melanin production, capsule size, and growth at… CONTINUE READING
