  • Five Torulopsis species, in which, characteristically, the mean molar percentage of guanine plus cytosine of the DNA bases (GC content) is above 50%, were examined to determine their cell-wall structure; the mode of bud formation; course of mitosis and their urease activity. The two urease-negative species, T. gropengiesseri (% GC 57.1) and T. silvatica (% GC 56.3), were found to possess affinitive properties which characterize perfect ascomycetous yeast species.In the urease-positive species… CONTINUE READING
