In our study, out of 7 isolates Candida krusei
showed sensitivity to Voriconazole, Caspofungin, Micafungin and Amphotericin B were 85% each, Flucytosine and Fluconazole were 15% each.
Antifungal activity was carried out against Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida krusei
and Candida tropicalis.
, a multidrugresistant opportunistic fungal pathogen: geographic and temporal trends from the ARTEMIS DISK Antifungal Surveillance Program.
In addition, seventy-one clinical isolates each of Candida tropicalis, Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis, and Candida krusei
were also tested for colony characteristics on tobacco agar.
Feed contamination with Candida krusei
as a probable source of mycotic mastitis in dairy cows.
Las otras dos cepas, Candida krusei
ATCC6258 y Candida parapsilosis ATCC22019 sirvieron de control interno para que los laboratorios evaluados validaran sus propios resultados antes de enviarlos al laboratorio evaluador externo.
Purified genomic DNA (1 ng) from Neisseria meningitides (ATCC-13077), Listeria monocytogenes (CCRI-4862), and Candida krusei
(ATCC28870) were PCR-amplified with a PTC-200 thermocycler (Bio-Rad Laboratories; 1 min at 94 [degrees]C, then 40 cycles of 1 s at 95 [degrees]C for the denaturation step, 10 s at 60 [degrees]C for the annealing step, and 20 s at 72 [degrees]C for the extension step) in a PCR reaction mixture containing 50 mmol/L Tris-HCl at pH 9.
Quality control was ensured by testing the CLSI recommended quality control strains Candida parapsilopsis ATCC 22019 (MIC range 2-8 [micro]g/ ml) and Candida krusei
ATCC 6258 (MIC range 16-64 [micro]g/ml).
And Candida glabrata and Candida krusei
are both resistant to fluconazole (Diflucan) treatment.
According to the manufacturer, the cross-reactivity of Candigen with other closely related Candida species ranges from less than 10% for Candida krusei
to 75% for C tropicalis.
We found that the activity of Candida krusei
isolated from hand surfaces was higher compared with strains isolated from phone surfaces, for which statistically significant differences were shown for enzymes such as alkaline phosphatase, cystine arylamidase and acid phosphatase, and lower activity for naphthol phosphohydrolase and N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosidase.
