SILVA, Eliane N. B. da; CAVALCANTI, Maria Auxiliadora de Q. e SOUZA-MOTTA, Cristina Maria de. Pathogenicity characteristics of filamentous fungi strains isolated from processed oat. Rev. Microbiol. [online]. 1999, vol.30, n.4, pp.377-380. ISSN 0001-3714. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0001-37141999000400016.
Nineteen strains of filamentous fungi isolated from processed oat were tested for pathogenicity factors, based on three parameters: growth at 37ºC, production of phospholipase and urease. Aspergillus niveus, Oidiodendron gryseum and Sporothrix cyanescens were positive for the three parameters. The other species were positive only for one or two of them.
