Growth of pathogenic Candida isolates anaerobically and under elevated concentrations of CO2 in air.

  • J Med Vet Mycol 1988 Feb;26(1):75.


Individual isolates of seven potentially pathogenic yeast species in the genus Candida all grew to some extent in Eagle's minimal essential medium including serum under elevated concentrations of CO2 and in anaerobic gas jars. The C. glabrata and C. tropicalis isolates had the highest anaerobic growth rates and yields, the C. guilliermondii and C. parapsilosis isolates had the lowest, and the C. albicans, C. krusei and C. pseudotropicalis isolates gave intermediate growth rates and yields. The same relative abilities to grow anaerobically were seen when the seven isolates were cultured in liquid and on agar formulations of a peptone-glucose broth and two media containing Yeast Nitrogen Base.
