Cycloheximide: Fungi Inhibited

Slide 6

February 2012

This is an example of some of the fungi, and certainly the list is by no means complete, that are inhibited by cycloheximide. Aspergillus fumigatus, Cryptococcus neoformans, Pseudallescheria boydii, Candida krusei, and Trichosporon species. I will just point out a new name that is just recently been introduced, Candida krusei, has had a name change and I doubt that it will be a name that will be used by everyone, but it is called Pichia kudriavzevii and if you see this in anything you will know that this is a new name for Candida krusei. The Trichosporon species also can be inhibited by cycloheximide, so we use this compound to help us with the slower growing molds.
