Abstract:
This study represents both a study case about the fungi associated with a description of Egypt volumes V Planches Antiquities in the Central library of Islamic manuscripts in Cairo, were used for identification of isolates from these brownish area from a description of Egypt The plate method with a DNA was used for identification of fungi. The two internal transcribed spacers and the 5.8S gene (ITS1-5.8S- ITS2) from the nuclear ribosomal DNA were amplified. The results show that the most dominant fungi isolated from the examined old paper samples belong to Aspergillus spp. (niger – flavus – fumigates and – terreus). In the present study, culture-independent molecular methods were applied to identify fungi communities colonizing paper samples. Some of these fungi are cellulolytic species. Pure fungal strains were used to constitute a marker for further comparative investigations of a description of Egypt volumes V Planches Antiquities.
