Killer activity of yeasts isolated from the water environment


, : Killer activity of yeasts isolated from the water environment. Canadian Journal of Microbiology 41(9): 759-766

The killer activity of 46 strains belonging to 12 yeast and yeast-like species isolated from water or sediment samples was studied. Only two strains of the genus Cryptococcus did not show killer activity. Killer activity of yeast-like species Aureobasidium pullulans, Hyphopichia burtonii and Geotrichum candidum, and yeast species Candida krusei and Candida lambica was low. Sporobolomyces salmonicolor, Cryptococcus laurentii and Cryptococcus albidus had better activity against basidiomycetous than ascomycetous species. Hansenula anomala strains showed good activity against Geotrichum candidum strains, Cryptococcus albidus, and Sporobolomyces salmonicolor. Rhodotorula species showed activity against the majority of both ascomycetous and basidiomycetous species.
