Phosphatidate phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.4) was detected in filamentous pathogenic fungi. In both dermatophytes,Microsporum gypseum andEpidermophyton floccosum, the enzyme was located in the mitochondrial and microsomal subcellular fractions with a pH optimum of 6.0. TheE. floccosum enzyme was more active than that ofM. gypseum. Although the enzyme in both… CONTINUE READING
