Abstract

Aphanoascus spp. are keratinophylic fungi occasionally described as etiological agents of tinea-like dermatomycoses. The goal of this work was to immunochemically characterize somatic and metabolic soluble antigens prepared from 4 species of Aphanoascus. Electrophoresis in SDS-PAGE gel and immunoblotting with sera from rabbits experimentally immunized with both somatic and metabolic antigens have shown a similar pattern among the species analyzed. However, some differences were noted between the species of Aphanoascus. These results suggest the existence of species-specific antigens.
