Incidence of keratinophilic fungi from selected soils of Kerala state (India).

There was considerable difference in the sequence data of the thirteen strains analyzed. Karam El-Din, and Y.

Keratinophilic fungi are an ecologically important group of fungi that decompose one of the most abundant and highly stable animal proteins on earth-keratin which they utilize as a nutrient substrate for growth. Introduction Keratinophilic fungi are an ecologically important group of fungi that decompose one of the most abundant and highly stable animal proteins on earth-keratin which they utilize as a nutrient substrate for growth.

One hundred and fifty samples were collected from eleven districts of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra state and screened for the presence of keratinophilic fungi using hair baiting technique for isolation.

Incidence of keratinophilic fungi from selected soils of Kerala state (India).

Distribution of soil samples examined of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra India. Materials and Methods 2. Chrysosporium state of Ctenomyces serratus and Trichophyton mentagrophytes were the smallest and the largest, respectively. Human hairs from a years-old male were used.

These findings are in agreement with the findings of previous work on keratinophilic fungi. Gymnascella hyalinospora was reported from Indian soils by Singh and Kushwaha [ 32 ] and Deshmukh [ 34 ]. It was reported from Indian soils by Dey and Kakoti [ 22 ]. There are some reports of occurrence of keratinophilic fungi from various parts of Maharashtra [ 40475556 ], but to best of our knowledge, this is the first comprehensive report on incidence of keratinophilic fungi from Vidarbha region.

Some of these fungi are well-known dermatophytes and are known to cause superficial cutaneous infections dermatophytoses of keratinized tissues skin, hair, and nails of humans and animals. Our findings confirm the presence of keratinophilic and related dermatophytes in the soils of Vidarbha region.

Microsporum gypseum complex was kerstinophilic next to C. The results of the isolations are presented in Table 2.

The other species of Chrysosporium isolated were Chrysosporium evolceanui 2. A Guide to Methods and ApplicationsA. Bar indicates genetic distance due to sequence variation.

It is reported from Indian soils [ 262930 ]. Mycotic infection is reported throughout the world, and it is extremely contagious [ 2 ]. Chrysosporium tropicum was keratinopnilic from comb lesion in two different breeds of chicken in India [ 50 ]. For phylogenetic tree construction, multiple sequences were obtained from GenBank and the alignments were performed using MEGA6 [ 16 ]. Various workers have isolated Chrysosporium zonatum from Indian soil [ 3132 ].
