Disease relevance of Trichosporon

  • The absolute stereochemical courses of cis,cis-muconate lactonizing enzyme (MLE;EC from Trichosporon cutaneum (TcMLE) and chloromuconate cycloisomerase (MLE II; EC from Pseudomonas sp B13 have been determined from 1H NMR measurements [1].
  • Purification and characterization of the serotype-specific polysaccharide antigen of Trichosporon cutaneum serotype II: a disease-related antigen of Japanese summer-type hypersensitivity pneumonitis [2].
  • A novel type of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) biosensor was developed for water monitor, based on co-immobilizing of Trichosporon cutaneum and Bacillus subtilis in the sol-gel derived composite material which is composed of silica and the grafting copolymer of poly (vinyl alcohol) and 4-vinylpyridine (PVA-g-P(4-VP)) [3].
  • Furthermore, C1q (as well as specific IgG and IgA antibody activities to Trichosporon cutaneum antigen) in BALF correlated with clinical symptoms and diffusing capacity (DCO), while the BAL lymphocytosis or the change of OKT4/OKT8 ratio did not [4].
  • Fatal Trichosporon pullulans breakthrough fungemia in cancer patients: report of three patients who failed on prophylaxis with itraconazole [5].

Gene context of Trichosporon

  • Molecular analysis of the Trichosporon cutaneum DSM 70698 argA gene and its use for DNA-mediated transformations [29].
  • Molecular phylogenetics of the genus trichosporon inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome B gene sequences [30].
  • Eight patients infected with Trichosporon species were treated with fluconazole, SCH 39304, or miconazole for 2-26 weeks [31].
  • Sera from patients with systemic infections caused by the opportunistic fungus Trichosporon beigelii have been shown to cross-react with anticryptococcal antibodies [16].
  • Trichosporon sp. strain CBS 5581 was identified as Trichosporon pullulans, and one clinical isolate, IFM 48794, was identified as Trichosporon faecale [30].
