The nucleotide sequence of the URA 5 protein coding region from 2 C. neoformans var. gattii strains was determined. Two alleles were identified for the C. neoformans var. gattii URA 5 gene, which differed at amino acid position 143. The nucleotide...

Cryptococcus neoformans var. grubii AFLP1/VNI is the main causative agent of cryptococcosis associated with AIDS in the world. Cryptococcus gattii AFLP6/VGII causes mainly endemic primary infection in immunocompetent hosts. To determine the minimu...
