Summary

The analysis of mitochondria' DNA (mtDNA) from several strains of Candida parapsilosis and Candida rhagii by restriction endonucleases enabled us to discriminate between several groups within the C. parapsilosis species and to allocate laboratory strains to one of these. The mtDNAs isolated ranged in size from 20 to 31 kb. The mtDNA isolated from group 1 C. parapsilosis hybridises with both ATPase subunit 6 and 8 gene probes, the same restriction fragment hybridising with both probes.
