Abstract

Double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs) with molecular masses 1.7 and 5.0 kbp, respectively, were isolated from the strain Cryptococcus hungaricus CBS 6569. The dsRNAs were copurified with eicosahedric virus-like particles, 29 nm in diameter. This strain produced a protease-sensitive 'toxin' which inhibited the growth of strain C. hungaricus CBS 4214. The toxin had maximum activity at pH 3.7. The highest toxin amount was attained after a culture period of four days.
