ATCC determines the biosafety level of a material based on our risk assessment as guided by the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is your responsibility to understand the hazards associated with the material per your organization’s policies and procedures as well as any other applicable regulations as enforced by your local or national agencies.

ATCC highly recommends that appropriate personal protective equipment is always used when handling vials. For cultures that require storage in liquid nitrogen, it is important to note that some vials may leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vial exploding or blowing off its cap with dangerous force creating flying debris. Unless necessary, ATCC recommends that these cultures be stored in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen rather than submersed in liquid nitrogen.

After 5 days on YEPD at 25°C colonies are butyrous, light cream-colored and circular. The surface is smooth usually flat or raised and opaque. Cells are globose, ovoidal or elongate and are usually isolated or in small groups.  
Metabolism of 5-methoxypsoraien
Induction of cytochrome p-450
This strain can grow on adenine droupout medium (appears white-creamy color).

Handling information

Handling procedure
Frozen ampoules packed in dry ice should either be thawed immediately or stored in liquid nitrogen. If liquid nitrogen storage facilities are not available, frozen ampoules may be stored at or below -70°C for approximately one week. Do not under any circumstance store frozen ampoules at refrigerator freezer temperatures (generally -20°C). Storage of frozen material at this temperature will result in the death of the culture.

  1. To thaw a frozen ampoule, place in a 25°C to 30°C water bath, until just thawed (approximately 5 minutes).  Immerse the ampoule just sufficient to cover the frozen material.  Do not agitate the ampoule.
  2. Immediately after thawing, wipe down ampoule with 70% ethanol and aseptically transfer 50 µL (or 2 to 3 agar cubes) of the content onto a plate or broth with medium recommended.
  3. Incubate the inoculum/strain at the temperature and conditions recommended.
  4. Inspect for growth of the inoculum/strain regularly. The sign of viability is noticeable typically after 1 to 2 days of incubation. However, the time necessary for significant growth will vary from strain to strain. 


Handling notes
Diploid; wild type; Metabolism of 5-methoxypsoraien; Induction of cytochrome p-450; This strain can grow on adenine droupout medium (appears white-creamy color).
