Dimorphism of pathogenic fungi, with special reference to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis



Dimorphism of pathogenic fungi, with special reference to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis



Japanese Journal of Medical Mycology 25(2): 102-107



On the basis of the biochemical and morphological studies on P. brasiliensis, a hypothesis for the conversion from a yeastlike (Y) form to a mycelial (M) form is proposed as follows. The synthesis of the cell wall components in the outer layer of the Y form cell wall is inhibited by environmental changes, resulting in the formation of a tunnel through which the M form extends.
