After direct microscopy to observe spores, hyphae, mycelia, and colonies of the latter, samples were plated on Sabouraud glucose agars with cyclohexamide to select for dermatophytes, in order to verify fungal infection.
Biochemical tests were performed to determine the species: gelatin liquefaction, nitrate reduction, Loffler's serum slope, cyclohexamide agar, Sabouraud's agar, casein/tyrosine hydrolysis, in the temperature range 37 to 45 degrees centigrade.
Interleukin-1 alpha mRNA induced by cyclohexamide, PMA, and retinoic acid is reduced by dexamethasone in PAM-212 keratinocytes.
All specimens were examined by KOH 10% and cultured on sabouraud dextrose agar containing cyclohexamide and chloramphenicol.
Cultures were done on three plates of Sabourads agar, one on plain Sabourads agar, the other ones with addition of chloremphenicol, and cyclohexamide. They were incubated at 28 degC and checked twice weekly for growth.
The BHI medium contained a fungal inhibitor (cyclohexamide, 100 mg/L).
commune grows with relative ease in culture media that do not contain cyclohexamide; due to this characteristic, it may be suspected that it is an environmental contaminant.
When required, the following antibiotics and antifungal agents were added at the specified concentrations: amphotericin B (20 [micro]g/ml), carbenicillin (100 [micro]g/ml), cyclohexamide (0.4 [micro]g/ml), polymyxinB sulphate (2x[10.sup.2] units/ml), trimethoprim (20 [micro]g/ml) and vancomycin (10 [micro]g/ml).
marinus studies, parasite inhibition resulted from 25 [micro]g/mL of cyclohexamide (Ray 1966a), 10 mg/mL (10,000 [micro]g/mL) of bacitracin (Faisal et al.
