Intra-and extracellular hemagglutinins from dermatophyte Trichophyton rubrum: Development-specific production and nutrition influence


, : Intra-and extracellular hemagglutinins from dermatophyte Trichophyton rubrum: Development-specific production and nutrition influence. Biochemical Archives 10(1): 33-39

Trichophyton rubrum dermatophyte produces both intra- and extracellular hemagglutinins during development in Sabouraud's media containing 4% D-glucose an 1% peptone. A time-course study has been designed for the fungal growth with concomitant production of hemagglutinins. The effect of nutrients on the production of both hemagglutinins has been investigated using different media composition with varied D-glucose and peptone concentrations. The results show that highest amount of hemagglutinin has been produced in presence of low D-glucose. Both intra- and- extracellular hemagglutinins agglutinate, besides several vertebrate erythrocytes, human erythrocytes of A, B and O blood group almost equally and thus are considered to be blood-group nonspecific.
