    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A medium that initially produced filaments from almost all of its Candida albicans blastospore inoculum contained 1% mycological peptone and 0.2% glucose final pH 7.4 to 7.5. The medium was inoculated to 106 cells/ml and incubated at 40°C. Reversion to secondary blastospores began at a mean of 2.4 hr after inoculation. The patterns of utilization of growth nutrients during optimal mycelial growth showed no correlation with the events of filamentation.
