The occurrence of plectaniaxanthin in Cryptococcus laurentii
Date of Original Version
Plectaniaxanthin, recently isolated from the mushroom Plectania coccinea (Scop. ex Fr.) Fuck., has now been isolated from the asporogenous yeast Cryptococcus laurentii (Kuff.) Skinner var. flavescens (Saito) Lodder et Kreger-van Rij. The identity of the compound was established by visible, NMR and high resolution mass spectra and by chemical reactions. Two further pigments have been isolated and preliminary data indicates that they have the same monocyclic dodecaene chromophore as plectaniaxanthin. © 1971.
