Caption

Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Myxozyma mucilagina, an ascomycetous yeast. Myxozyma mucilagina, also known as Candida mucilagina, was originally isolated from the rotting (necrotic) tissue of a cactus (Stenocereus gummosis) in Baja California, Mexico. The cells are spheroidal to ellipsoidal and single, in pairs (or occasionally in clusters) and is encapsulated with a viscous extracellular polysaccharide. The genus Myxozyma (anamorphic ascomycetous yeasts) has physiological and cultural properties similar to Lipomyces, as starch-like compounds form extracellularly on both. Although closely related, the two genera differ in isoenzyme mobilities. Magnification: x4,800 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
