An isolate of Rhodotorula gracilis CFR-1 was tested for its inhibitory activity against several zygomycetes cultures by plate diffusion assay method. Most distinct inhibition was observed for Mucor heimalis, M. jansseni and Cunninghamella verticellata. The role of a chitosan hydrolysing enzyme secreted by Rhodotorula gracilis in the antagonism against the zygomycetes fungi was also studied.
