Strain Information

  • Information

    Used in recycle type, continuous process for fermentation based on application of mixed culturing principle. Produces thiolase III in peroxisomes. Produces ergosterol and ubiquinone-9 in a single process. Produces extracellular mannon. Degrades catalase. Degrades hydrocarbons. Produces alcohol oxidase. Produces carnitine acetyltransferase. Produces ergosterol. Produces ubiquinone-9. Produces urate oxidase (uricase). Incorrectly identified and listed as Candida tropicalis in earlier editions of the NCYC catalogue. 26S rDNA sequence shows 99.6% identity with the Type strain of Candida viswanathii.
