Article

Summary

The specific anti-yeast phaseHistoplasma capsulatum conjugate has been tested against 13 yeast phase strains ofH. capsulatum and 9 ofH. duboisii. The conjugate was specific forH. capsulatum, no yeast phase form ofH. duboisii obtained in vitro or in vivo reacted with it. The taxonomic implications of these results are discussed.
