However, it is important to highlight the presence and the relative abundance of filamentous
bacteria, especially around 48 h in the control treatment.
The occurrence of various filamentous
fungi in sediments with heavy metals has also been reported in other works from different parts of the world [26, 27].
Caption: Figure 3: Renal mass pathology shows multiple renal abscesses with filamentous
structures (red arrow) on hematoxylin and eosin stain under (a) low power (40x) and (b) high power (100x).
Furthermore, knowledge of the potential for use in bioremediation of filamentous
fungi from the Amazon region with is still incipient.
The overall proportion of fungal isolates is 15.1% comprising predominantly (12.9%) of yeasts, while filamentous
fungi contributed a minor portion (2.2%).
Actinomyces have traditionally been classified as bacteria although they have some homology to fungi.1,2 These filamentous
gram positive bacteria produce multiple abscesses and sinus tracts often producing a yellowish discharge termed "sulfur granules".2 Actinomycosis can affect many organ systems.
Actually, the authors found, previously, links between the amount of filamentous
bacteria and zooglea clusters and viscosity values of mixed liquors from conventional activated plants treating municipal wastewater, thus suggesting the use of rheological tools to control dysfunctions caused by the proliferation of specific microorganism .
The membrane was placed on a plate containing R2A agar (Difco, Detroit, MI, USA) at 30[degrees]C for 7 to 14 days, to allow filamentous
fungi and yeasts to grow.
Caption: FIGURE 5: Gomori methenamine silver (GMS) stain performed on the lingula biopsy specimen highlights thin filamentous
organisms with morphologic features suggestive of Actinomyces spp.
In recent times the incidence of filamentous
fungi such as Aspergillus spp, and to a lesser extent Mucor spp and Fusarium spp, has increased.
Actinomycotic osteomyelitis of mandible or maxilla is diseases of cattle caused by the Gram positive branching filamentous
microorganism, Actinomyces bovis (Militerno, 2008).
We observed filamentous
green algae attached to the marginal scutes of the carapace (Fig.
