New isolates of Aureobasidium pullulans were obtained from plant leaf surfaces gathered in San Diego County. The new fungal isolates were identified as A. pullulans on the basis of the appearance of polymorphic colonies formed on agar plates, the electrophoretic profiles of repeated genomic DNA sequences, and the production of pullulan in shake flask cultures. The isolates showed different degrees of pigmentation. One of the natural isolates was nonpigmented under mock production conditions in… CONTINUE READING
