  2. Traditional diagnostic methods, such as histopathology and culture, which are still considered the gold standards, have low sensitivity, which underscores the need for the development of new means of detecting fungal infectious agents. Indeed, novel serologic and molecular techniques have been developed and are currently under clinical evaluation

Using specific primers based on the ribosomal operon, positive DNA amplification was obtained from lungs of 11/215 tested small burrowing animals, both terrestrial and aquatic, and including frozen (n = 4) and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (n = 7) samples. The main species detected in Europe in mice, otters and river rats was Emmonsia crescens. Two strains from otters and weasels were.

Importantly, molecular methods for fungal diagnosis and identification directly address the declining numbers of clinical mycologists because they are not dependent on classical phenotyping methods. Similarly, molecular methods have the power to identify the increasing numbers of fungi found to produce disease in humans and animals Ochratoxin A (OTA) is one of the most abundant food-contaminating mycotoxins. Its presence in several agricultural commodities has been considered a problem worldwide. This toxin is mainly produced by two genera of fungi: Aspergillus and Penicillium. Ochratoxin A has nephrotoxic, immunosuppressive, and carcinogenic effects; consequently, contamination with OTA presents a major risk for human. Introduction. Skin, hair and nail tissue are collected for microscopy and culture (mycology) t o establish or confirm the diagnosis of a fungal infection. Exposing the site to long-wavelength ultraviolet radiation (Wood lamp) can help identify some fungal infections of hair (tinea capitis) because the infected hair fluoresces green..

The advent and rapid development in the area of nanotechnology has opened up venues in incorporating molecular diagnostics tools with nanoscience for identification and diagnosis of pathogens. This combination has given rise to a new promising technology, i.e., nanomolecular diagnostic technology (NMDT) for diagnosing bacterial plant pathogens. The gene regions that have been used for molecular identifications of these fungi include internal transcribed spacer (ITS), translation elongation factor 1-α (EF-1α), ß-tubulin, calmodulin (CAL), histone subunit 3 (H3), glyceraldehydes-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), etc Molecular-based methods have gained acceptance for confirmation of the infection when applied on tissues.

Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) is a serious infection caused by the fungus Pneumocystis jirovecii. Most people who get PCP have a medical condition that weakens their immune system, like HIV/AIDS, or take medicines (such as corticosteroids) that lower the body's ability to fight germs and sickness. In the United States, people with HIV/AIDS are. Molecular diagnostics is a collection of techniques used to analyze biological markers in the genome and proteome, and how their cells express their genes as proteins, applying molecular biology to medical testing.In medicine the technique is used to diagnose and monitor disease, detect risk, and decide which therapies will work best for individual patients, (foreword) and in agricultural.

Fungi, once considered non-pathogenic microbiological curiosities have emerged as an important cause of community acquired and health care associated infections. Among various pathogenic species of fungi, Candida is the most prominent cause of fungal infections The fungi comprise a diverse group of organisms that are heterotrophic and typically saprozoic. In addition to the well-known macroscopic fungi (such as mushrooms and molds), many unicellular yeasts and spores of macroscopic fungi are microscopic. For this reason, fungi are included within the field of microbiology

The 18S rRNA gene is a multi-copy gene that is slowly evolving and highly conserved among fungi, making it an attractive target for the detection of fungus in clinical specimens.

Molecular diagnostic techniques, particularly in situ hybridization (ISH), have the potential to help arrive at a definitive diagnosis in these difficult cases. Although ISH has found previously an important role in the diagnosis of viral infections in tissue (7,14) , the detection and identification of fungal agents has been limited to studies. Fungi live as either single-celled organisms or multicellular organisms. Single-celled fungi are referred to as yeasts. The vast majority of fungi are multicellular. Most of the body of a fungi is made from a network of long, thin filaments called 'hyphae'. Hyphae filaments are made from tubular cells that connect end on end

Though by means of laser capture microdissection granulomas can be obtained free from the surrounding tissue growth of pathogens (M. tuberculosis, fungi) may take weeks, delaying diagnosis. The advent of molecular methods especially the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) as a diagnostic tool made the detection of uncultivable organisms possible symptoms. Any detectable changes in color, shape, and/or functions of the plant in response to a pathogen or disease-causing agent is a symptom. •Signs of plant disease are physical evidence of the pathogen, for example, fungal fruiting bodies, bacterial ooze, or nematode cysts. Signs also can help with plant disease identification

The regulation of mRNA translation is a process required to maintain cell homeostasis, and its malfunction can lead to disease. In recent years, advances in high-throughput and microscopy methods have revealed findings that challenge hitherto established dogmas, such as extensive translation in untranslated regions of a transcript, pervasive initiation from non-AUG codons, heterogeneity. •Fungi were discovered earlier than bacteria and viruses. •In the past, most fungi cause skin infections or cosmetic infections, where bacteria and viruses cause serious fatal diseases, so there was no interest of studying fungi. •In 1980, when HIV infection was discovered, increasing number of immunocompromizin Chronic granulomatous disease is a disorder that causes the immune system to malfunction, resulting in a form of immunodeficiency.

Molecular Techniques for Diagnosis of Bacterial Plant

Plant disease diagnosis. Fungi, bacteria, virus, and phytoplasmas cause distinct types of symptoms in most host-pathogen interactions. However, there are some diseases which show similarity in symptoms, though they are induced by different groups of pathogens. It is often impossible to diagnose plant virus infections merely by observing host. Sputum examination refers to the laboratory examination or test of the material or substance coughed out from the lungs, bronchi, trachea, and larynx. Normally, sputum is mainly composed of mucus and also certain cellular and non-cellular components of host origin.
