Abstract

A comparative biochemical study was performed on some strains ofCandida rhagii and on strains belonging to different subgroups ofCandida parapsilosis. Measurements of alcohol dehydrogenase activity, resistance to drugs and occurrence of an alternative pathway enabled us to confirm the classification between several subgroups within theC. parapsilosis species.

Key words

alcohol dehydrogenase Candida parapsilosis Candida rhagii cellular respiration drug resistance
