Separation of fungal propagules by partition in aqueous polymer 2-phase systems

Abstract
Conidia of Penicillium chrysogenum and Penicillium frequentans and sporangiospores of Rhizopus rhizopodiformis, Rhizomucor pusillus, and Mucor racemosus were subjected to partition in aqueous polymer two-phase systems. The partition behavior differed drastically between the conidia of the two Penicillium species and the sporangiospores of the three species of phycomycetes. This difference in partition behavior can be used for purification of fungi belonging to different taxonomical groups. P. frequentans was completely separated from M. racemosus by two extractions, whereas four extractions were needed to purify M. racemosus. This method was used on an air sample from a locality where wood fuel chips are handled. The conidia of the fungi... (More)
