Conidiation and carbohydrate composition in some Candida and Torulopsis species

Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek. 1979;45(4):547-55. doi: 10.1007/BF00403654.


The genus Candida Berkhout (including Torulopsis auct.) is restricted to the anamorphs of Sacchromycetales (asci-forming yeasts Species with heterobasidiomycetous relationships are either transferred to Apiotrichum when the cells are at least partly formed sympodially and when the hydrolyzates of intact cells contain xylose, or to Rhodotorula when the cells are formed basipetally (enteroblastic, phialidic) and the cells do not contain xylose.
