Molecular taxonomy and ecology of Pseudallescheria, Petriella and Scedosporium prolificans (Microascaceae) containing opportunistic agents on humans

Molecular taxonomy and ecology of Pseudallescheria, Petriella and Scedosporium prolificans (Microascaceae) containing opportunistic agents on humans

Mycological Research 110(Pt 2): 151-160

The main purpose of the present paper is to establish the connection between phylogenetic and morphological data and ecological features of strains of Pseudallescheria, Petriella, and Scedosporium. For the phylogenetic analysis sequences of the ITS region and the large subunit (partial sequences) of the rDNA were used. Cultural characteristics were observed on MEA 2% and Weitzman-Silva Hutner Agar.
