LP14810-3   Cryptococcus neoformans
Cryptococcus neoformans is an encapsulated yeast-like fungus that can live in both plants and animals.This species, also known by its teleomorph name, Filobasidiella neoformans, belongs to a broad class of organisms called club fungi or Division Basidiomycota, one of the five major types of fungi. C. neoformans usually grows as a yeast (unicellular) and replicates by budding. Under certain conditions, both in nature and in the laboratory, C. neoformans can grow as a filamentous fungus. When grown as a yeast, C. neoformans has a prominent capsule composed mostly of polysaccharides. India ink staining is used for easy visualization of the capsule. The particles of ink pigment do not enter the capsule that surrounds the spherical yeast cell, resulting in a zone of clearance or halo around the cells.
