Abstract

The growth of four clinical strains of was investigated using the chemically defined medium of McVeigh and Morton. Emphasis was placed upon controlling conditions of inoculum preparation, age of inoculum used, and the homogeneity of samples used for analysis. The medium was evaluated for its ability to support growth of the yeast phase of at 37 °C. Cultures were followed for 240 h and growth patterns were determined by measuring optical density, dry weight, nucleic acids and protein. The medium is excellent for growing the yeast phase of The exponential phase lasted an average of 135 h and the stationary phase 72 h; a decline began after 207 h. This defined medium supports abundant growth of the yeast phase of and may thus prove useful in the preparation of yeast-phase antigens.
