on the agglutination reactions of capsular polysaccharide antigens. Serotype A and serotype D strains, as well as the AD hybrid, are classified as C. neoformans, whereas serotype B and serotype C strains have been classified as C. gattii. Serotype A strains have been designated C. neoformans var. grubii, whereas serotype D strains have been designated C. neoformans var. neoformans.(3) This classification was based on the differences in capsular structure and DNA between the strains, as well as on a complete c…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
