Many yeasts, dermatophytes as well as moulds liberate hydrolytic enzymes into the growth medium. The enzymes may serve the fungus by different ways, e. g., they cause chemical and physical changes in the immediate surrounding of the fungus thus enhancing the living possibilities. The production of enzymes capable of digesting mammalian proteins would aid pathogenic fungi to penetrate the human epidermis and to spread in the dermis. Many of the dermatophytes are, in fact, capable of digesting… Expand
