Microscopic and molecular analyses showed the presence of endobacteria inside the mycelia of four out of twelve nitrous oxide (N(2)O)-producing fungal isolates identified as Mortierella elongata. The 16S rRNA gene was successfully amplified with DNA extracted directly from the endobacterium-containing fungal strains and all sequences were related to that of Candidatus Glomeribacter gigasporarum in the family Burkholderiaceae. Bacterial endotoxin was detected in the endobacterium-positive fungal… CONTINUE READING
