Yeast tissue phase of Emmonsia pasteuriana inoculated in golden hamster by intratesticular way.
We chose the golden hamster, highly sensitive to dimorphic fungi as agents of systemic mycoses as histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, sporotrichosis, penicilliosis marneffei, paracoccidioidomycosis when the inoculation was done by intraperitoneal route. We inoculated young golden hamsters by i.p. and int...
Nitroglycerin metabolism by Phanerochaete chrysosporium: evidence for nitric oxide and nitrite formation.
We have demonstrated that a filamentous fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium converts glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) into its di- and mononitrate derivatives concurrently with the formation of nitric oxide detected by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), and the formation of nitrite. The metabolisms of n...
Mycological and some physiological studies of keratinophilic and other moulds associated with sheep wool.
Wool samples of 50 healthy sheep collected from different localities at Ar' Ar in Saudi Arabia were examined for the presence of keratinophilic and other fungi using the hair plate technique. Forty-eight species and 2 varieties belonging to 20 genera were isolated on Sabouraud's dextrose agar at 25...
[A fatal case of human pulmonary adiaspiromycosis].
A fatal case of human pulmonary adiaspiromycosis is reported. The patient, a male farm laborer from Pernambuco, in the Northeastern part of Brazil, had moved to Planaltina, DF., one year prior the onset of his illness. The main clinical manifestations consisted in fever, myalgia, cough and dyspnea....
A comparative characterization of indigenous keratinase enzymes from district Khairpur, Sindh, Pakistan.
To isolate and characterize keratinolytic fungi and bacteria from indigenous soils, a total of 80 samples were collected from Ghari Mori District. Khairpur, and these organisms were isolated using standard microbiological technique. The isolated keratinolytic microorganisms comprised...
Cutaneous mycoses in chameleons caused by the Chrysosporium anamorph of Nannizziopsis vriesii (Apinis) Currah.
A dermatophyte-like fungus was isolated from skin biopsies of three different species of captive chameleon in which fungal elements had been observed by histologic examination. An adult Parson's chameleon (Chamaeleo parsonii) presented with vesicles that became crusty brown lesions on the limbs and...
Laboratory and field evaluation of the fungus Chrysosporium lobatum against the larvae of the mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus.
Eleven fungal species in three genera were isolated from the soil at Agra, India by the feather-baiting technique. Out of the 11 species, Chrysosporium lobatum Scharapov, a deuteromycetous (Moniliales: Moniliaceae) fungus, caused high mortality of Culex quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae) larv...
Pulmonary adiaspiromycosis in raccoons (Procyon lotor) from Oregon.
Pulmonary adiaspiromycosis in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
Adiaspiromycosis is a noninfectious, nonarthropod-transmitted fungal infection that occurs worldwide in lower vertebrates, especially rodents. However, humans may become accidental hosts. Reported here is a case of adiaspiromycosis of the lung in an HIV-positive, 40-year-old, bisexual man who first...
Enzymatic determination of veratryl alcohol.
A rapid and sensitive method was developed for the measurement of veratryl alcohol--a secondary metabolite of some lignin degrading fungi. The method is based on the enzymatic oxidation of veratryl alcohol to veratraldehyde by the ligninase of Phanerochaete chrysosporium. The purified enzymes oxidiz...
