  • a Shown are 24- and 48-h MICs and the MIC phenotype (as defined in Materials and Methods) in unbuffered YAD (pH 4.5) and MOPS-buffered RPMI 1640 (pH 7.0). Note that all isolates having a low-high (L/H) phenotype in RPMI 1640 had a low-low (L/L) phenotype in YAD. Isolate 707-15, used in many of the experiments in this study, was tested in an animal model and was found to respond as a fluconazole-susceptible isolate (10). Isolates having MICs that resulted in discrepant susceptibility interpretations (L/L versus high-high [H/H] phenotypes) are highlighted in boldface.
