Pigment formation by trichophyton rubrum differentiation between trichophyton rubrum and trichophyton mentagrophytes on serum albumin agar



Pigment formation by trichophyton rubrum differentiation between trichophyton rubrum and trichophyton mentagrophytes on serum albumin agar



Zentralblatt fuer Bakteriologie Parasitenkunde Infektionskrankheiten und Hygiene Erste Abteilung Originale Reihe A Medizinische Mikrobiologie und Parasitologie 237(2-3): 395-404



On serum albumin agar (bovine albumin) with initial pH values of 5.0-6.0, T. rubrum showed a yellow pigmentation, and on the same medium with an initial pH value of 7.0, a red pigmentation. Strains of T. mentagrophytes have never shown pigmentation until now. The scarce growth (submerged) of T. rubrum on serum albumin agar is associated with a pigment formation that may be used for diagnostic purposes. It could be read within 3-7 days. Serum albumin agar with an initial pH value of 5.0 was introduced in 1964 for the detection of the strain-specific proteolytic activity of Candida albicans.
