|Title:||Survey of keratinophilic fungi in sewage sludge from wastewater treatment plants of Mazandaran, Islamic Republic of Iran|
|Abstract:||To isolate keratinophilic fungi in sewage sludge from wastewater treatment plants in Sari city, Mazandaran province, Islamic Republic of Iran, samples were taken from 7 plants with different sewage treatment technologies. From 35 sludge samples cultured on Sabouraud's agar with cycloheximide and chloramphenicol, 326 fungal colonies belonging to 7 species were isolated. Geotrichum [59.5%], Cladosporium [13.8%], Alternaria [11.3%] and Penicillium [10.7%] species were the most prevalent. No growth of keratinophilic fungi was observed on this medium. However, using the hairbaiting technique, Microsporum gypseum, Chrysosporium spp. and Geotrichum spp. were isolated|
