Abstract Share this page

The biosynthesis of chondroitinase and hyaluronidase by different isolates of was investigated in 20 strains isolated from patients (17 strains), a penguin (, one strain), an armadillo (, one strain) and the environment (dog food, one strain). All the isolates studied had the ability to produce chondroitinase and hyaluronidase, although differences in colony morphology and enzyme production were detected among them. These results suggest that further investigations should be carried out in the clinical field in order to clarify the potential role of enzyme production in the pathogenesis of paracoccidioidomycosis.
