Later, the osmotic adaptation of the halophilic fungus Hortaea werneckii was studied by (26) and it was found that glycerol was the major compatible solute in actively growing H.
Similar results were the halophilic melanized yeast-like fungus Hortaea werneckii (Turk et al.

Moreover, the fungus Hortaea werneckii has mainly been isolated in environments with salinity between 3000 and 7500 mg [L.sup.-1] (PETROVIC et al., 2002; SAHUL HAMEED et al., 2003; MEDEIROS et al., 2008) and has already been reported in water from Macrobrachium amazonicum farming (BRILHANTE et al., 2011).

En el presente estudio solo se registro un caso de tina nigra, causada por Hortaea werneckii
en una nina de 7 anos.
For instance, heterologous expression of selected Debaryomyces hansenii and Hortaea werneckii
genes markedly improved the salt tolerance of Saccharomyces cerevisiae [25, 26].
Tinea nigra is a superficial mycosis seen in tropical areas, caused by the fungus Hortaea werneckii
. It produces a light brown pigmentation on acral areas, usually with a small diameter, and with a reticulated pattern on dermatoscopy.
El agente causal es la levadura negra Hortaea werneckii
