INTRODUCTION. There is now a high level of acceptance amongst biodeterioration biologists and technologists in the paints and biocides industries , that. Several paints of varying chemistry have been in use for domestic and industrial purposes. The painted Biodeterioration of domestic and public buildings.

Species of fungi isolated from frescoes.
Microbial Degradation of Paintings
The membership of the International Biodeterioration Research Group IBRG is made up predominantly of microbiologists from industrial users of biocides, biocide manufacturers, testing biodeteerioration both the private and government sector and academic institutions.
Mural paintings rely on techniques and materials differing from those utilized in easel paintings.
Biodegradation and Paonts in Latin America. For instance, from the surface of a fresco by Beato Angelico in St. Given the wide range of organic and inorganic molecules that are present in both types of paintings, many different types of microorganisms may grow on such substrates provided that favorable environmental conditions humidity, temperature, light, and, to a lesser extent, pH are met.
Similar wide variations in the species isolated from different periods were reported in the analyses of the microbial, essentially fungal, flora present on wall paintings in the Buddhist shrines of Ajanta in India 1. Cragnolino G and Tuovinen Paijts The role of sulphatereducing and sulphur-oxidising bacteria in the localized corrosion of iron-base alloys – a review.

Bacteria and their role in the deterioration of frescoes of the complex of monasteries from northern Moldavia. These data could be taken as an indication of the presence of a fungal flora specifically developing on the painting and differing, at least in part, from that present in the environment.
The desire was to produce a test which would allow the in-use fungicidal performance of paints to be evaluated in the laboratory.
Likewise, if temperature, moisture, and light are not controlled, the microbial communities of two paintings ibodeterioration with exactly the same materials will differ considerably if one painting is kept in the northern latitudes and the other is kept in the tropics.
Bock E, Sand W.
Fungal contamination of oil paintings in Japan. It sounds almost tautological to state that, besides the chemical composition of an art work, the environment conditions the development of a microbial flora, as it is quite obvious that a specific microbial flora will develop, for instance, on a fresco on the facade of a church where it receives a considerable amount of light and a different flora will develop on a similar fresco inside the same building in which light is very reduced.
Further, the biochemical reactions catalyzed by the different microbial species may vary with the different makeup of the substrate and also when external factors, including age, alter the chemical structures of some of the components of the substrate. University of Padua; A study of the fungi occurring on 15th century frescoes in Florence, Italy.
In this way, the microbiologist will be able to suggest the nature and the mode of treatment that will stop microbial colonization before damage becomes visible and irreversible. Of the isolates, 46 were identified as members of 19 different species of Streptomyces and 5 were identified as members of the genus Nocardia. Similar limitations will greatly reduce the usefulness of other molecular biological techniques, such as fluorescence in situ hybridization, that permit identification of microorganisms without their isolation and culture.
Recent advances in biodeterioration and biodegradation. Thus, the investigator will have only a snapshot of the state of the artifact at that precise moment and not a time-elapsed picture of the development of the microbial communities that may have existed during the life span of the art work. Thus, it was concluded that the alga could grow even under heterotrophic conditions by utilizing the organic molecules brought in the cave by visitors or resulting from the degradation of biological residues.
Biodeterioration of paints Wednesday, 1 April Publication: Oil and Colour Chemists’ Association, Australia. Biodeterioration of stone monuments: Bacillus pumilus was the bacterial species present at the highest cell concentration, by far, and Aspergillus niger and Penicillium chrysogenum were the fungal species present at the highest cell concentrations. Such results confirmed those of an earlier report on the succession of fungi on this type of paint, namely, that initially species of Aspergillusfollowed by species of Alternariaand, eventually, Aureobasidium pullulans were found.
In a few cases, more comprehensive analyses aiming to determine all, or the majority of, the biota present on a painting have been reported 27 With few exceptions, the paintings, some as long as 5 m, represented different animals some imaginaryand their quality was such that the cave was designated by some the Sistine Chapel of the Paleolithic.

Several paints of varying chemistry have been in use for domestic and industrial purposes. In addition, cyanobacteria and algae can provide an important source of organic material on which heterotrophic bacteria and fungi may thrive, thus causing further aesthetic and structural damage to the paintings.
Further, Aspergillus nigerone of the most ubiquitous fungal contaminants, was isolated in only one case. Allsopp D, Seal K J. In conclusion, the differences observed in the fungal colonizations of the two frescoes are not easily explained. In conclusion, the few reports od which the mechanism of microbial colonization of frescoes has been investigated indicate that bacteria may be the first colonizers.

Microbial Degradation of Paintings
This comprehensive data may provide the foundation for ascertaining the existence of associations or successions among the components of a microbial flora. The microbial colonization of oil paintings.
Later on, fungal growth in depth occurred. Recently, a method of identifying microorganisms by sequencing a portion of the DNA coding for the 16S rRNA has been used biodeterioratiob cultures of bacteria isolated from frescoes 744 and even with DNA samples extracted directly from a fresco 44 Emoto Y, Miura S, editors.
The presence in a number of Italian frescoes of species of nitrogen-fixing Nostoc indicates that cyanobacteria may colonize frescoes in which combined nitrogen may be absent The group has just carried out a biodeetrioration statistically designed comparison, resulting in their internal publication of a Draft 5 O Method.
These, in turn, supplied the organic nutrients that allowed the establishment of a community of scavenger bacteria and fungi that further contributed to the degradation of the fresco. In addition, he or she will be called to give an answer in a short period and to provide in great haste the information necessary hiodeterioration corrective interventions.
