Title Cryptococcus arboriformis Sp. Nov., a novel anamorphic basidiomycetous yeast species isolated from a patient's urine.
Journal Microbiol. Immunol.
Abstract A basidiomycetous yeast strain isolated from the urine of a 73-year-old Japanese patient with chronic renal failure was revealed to be a novel species by sequencing the D1/D2 26S rDNA and ITS regions of the rRNA gene. The name Cryptococcus arboriformis sp. nov. is proposed for the isolate, with IFM 54862(T) (=CBS 1044(T) =JCM 14201(T)) as the type strain. A phylogenetic analysis positioned Cryptococcus arboriformis in the Trichosporonales lineage and showed that it is closely related to C. haglerorum.
