Rhizopus nigricans andR. arrhizus were cultured in modified Sabouraud broth and synthetic dextrose-glutamate medium for periods of two to eight weeks. The culture filtrates and extracts of fungous mats were examined for the presence ofin vitro hemolytic activity. The culture filtrates exhibited little hemolytic activity but all fungous mat extracts produced hemolysis of sheep, rabbit, guinea pig and human erythrocytes. Guinea pig erythrocytes were in general most readily hemolyzed and sheep… Expand

Preliminary characterization of the hemolysin of Rhizopus nigricans
The cumulative findings suggest that the active hemolytic substance is a lipid perhaps attached to a protein in Rhizopus nigricans cultured for two weeks in modified Sabouraud broth. Expand
Mucormycosis and entomophthoromyc osis
This reference list is mainly concerned with species of Absidia, Rhizopus, Mortierella, Basidiobolus, Entomophthora, and Hyphomyces pathogenic to mammals, and occasionally an unusual 'phycomycetous' fungus is listed because of its involvement in disease. Expand

The author and his co-workers have attempted to isolate several high and low molecular weight toxins in a pure state from virulent strains of Candida albicans and Aspergillus fumigatus as opportunist. Expand


Preparation and properties of the endotoxins of Aspergillus fumigatus and Aspergillus flavus
Optimal cultural conditions and methods of extraction are described here for the production of the toxins of both Aspergillus fumigatus and A. flavus, powerful nephrotoxins of which a characteristic necrosis of the kidney cortex is evident grossly in mice. Expand
Allergenic molds: Antigenic and allergenic properties of Alternaria tenuis
Alternaria-sensitive patients showed an increase in titer after hyposensitization treatment over their pre-treatment levels by the indirect hemagglutination test using cells sensitized with heated antigen, and a low level of antibody was detectable in some of the normal individuals. Expand

Certain nutritional requirements of one strain of Arthroderma tuberculatum were established in shaken flask culture using the optimum medium, which consisted of 6 % mono sodium glutamate, 4 % glucose, 0.1 % K2HPO4 and 0.05 % MgSO4. Expand
Hämolytische Eigenschaft der Dermatophyten
Es wird die hämolytische Eigenschaft der Dermatophyten beschrieben, welche nicht gleichmäßig bei allen Arten and Stämmen entwickelt ist, aber ausgeprägt bei T. mentagrophytes (granul). Expand
Acute cerebral phycomycosis (mucormycosis). Report of a pediatric patient successfully treated with amphotericin B and cycloheximide and review of the pertinent literature.
A classical example of acute cerebral phycomycosis in a 15-year-old girl who was debilitated by diabetic acidosis is presented and it is suggested that control of the basic disease, adequate surgical drainage, and the administration of antifungal agents should be effective in lowering this high mortality rate.

An Endotoxin from Aspergillus Fumigatus
It has not been possible to develop a true anaphylaxis against the cell sap of Aspergillus fumigatus, but apparently both rabbits and guinea pigs may be made supersensitive to the toxin. The cell sapExpand
