Soil and leachate samples with hair bait were subcultured after invasion and subsequent colonisation by the keratinophilic
Isolation and molecular identification of keratinophilic
fungi from public parks soil in Shiraz, Iran.
Survey of keratinophilic
fungi from soils in Ahvaz, Iran.
Eleven genera of fungi, including six keratinophilic
genera and one dermatophyte, belonging to nine families were isolated from the 42 hair samples of the rodents (Table 2 and Figure 4).
These are keratinophilic
organisms, and, as such, they invade keratinized tissues, including the stratum corneum, the hair, and the nails.
In amphibians, basic physiologic and anatomic traits that vary among species, such as skin sloughing rate and skin thickness, could provide innate defenses against the keratinophilic
activity of B.
Ecology of dermatophytes and other keratinophilic
fungi in swimming pools and polluted and unpolluted streams.
KEY WORDS: Keratinophilic
fungi, Keratinase, Dermatophytosis, Domestic animals.
Dermatophytes are a group of keratinophilic
and keratinolytic molds, some of which are responsible for ringworm.
The maintenance and preservation of keratinophilic
fungi and related dermatophytes.
Dermatophytes are keratinophilic
and keratinolytic, meaning they digest keratin and utilize it as a nutrient source.
Dermatophytoses refer to superficial fungal infection of keratinised tissues- skin, hair and nail caused by keratinophilic
