Abstract

Phospholipase A and lysophospholipase activities were measured in the culture fluid and in the blastospores of . When phospholipase activity was measured in six yeasts (four strains of . and a single strain each of and ) a correlation was found between this activity and two potential parameters of pathogenicity. The . isolates which adhered most strongly to buccal epithelial cells and were most pathogenic in mice had the highest phospholipase activities. Non-pathogenic yeasts, including . isolates which did not adhere and did not kill mice, had lower phospholipase activities.
