One hundred and forty-seven isolates distributed among 22 species of dermatophytes were tested for ability to assimilate 23 carbon sources and 4 nitrogen sources, and to hydrolyse casein, tyrosine, gelatine, starch and urea. Differences were found among species in the rate of growth on 11 of the carbon sources, 2 of the nitrogen sources and the time taken to hydrolyse urea. Based on these findings, a practical scheme allowing differentiation of the 22 species investigated is presented. Since… CONTINUE READING
