    Fungal Genetics and Biology 2012

    Loline alkaloids (LA), which are 1-aminopyrrolizidines with an oxygen bridge, are produced by Epichloe¨ (anamorph=Neotyphodium) species, endophytes of grasses. LA are insecticidal, thus, helping to protect host plants from insect herbivory. The objective of this study was to identify genes associate...

  4. A high-affinity ammonium transporter from the mycorrhizal ascomycete Tuber borchii
    Author(s) unavailable

    Fungal Genetics and Biology 2012

    An ammonium transporter cDNA, named TbAMT1, was isolated from the ectomycorrhizal ascomycetous truffle Tuber borchii. The polypeptide encoded by TbAMT1 (52kDa) functionally complements ammonium uptake-defective yeast mutants and shares sequence similarity with previously characterized ammonium transp...
  5. Distribution and localization of microsatellites in the Perigord black truffle genome and identification of new molecular markers.

    Fungal Genetics and Biology 48(6):592 (2011) PMID 20965267

    We surveyed the T. melanosporum genome (1) to characterise its SSR pattern; (2) to compare it with SSR patterns found in 48 other fungal and three oomycetes genomes and (3) to identify new polymorphic SSR markers for population genetics. The T. melanosporum genome is rich in SSRs with 22,425 SSRs wi...
  6. Hyphal and cytoskeleton polarization in Tuber melanosporum: a genomic and cellular analysis.

    Fungal Genetics and Biology 48(6):561 (2011) PMID 21176788

    We have explored the Tuber melanosporum genome sequence by searching for homologs of genes known to play crucial roles in the morphogenesis and cell polarity of yeasts and filamentous fungi. One hundred and forty-nine genes have been identified and functionally grouped according to the deduced amino...
  7. The protein phosphatase PhzA of A. fumigatus is involved in oxidative stress tolerance and fungal virulence.

    Fungal Genetics and Biology 66:79 (2014) PMID 24614084

    Protein phosphatases Z that are unique to the fungal kingdom have been associated to resistance to high salt concentration, cell wall integrity, cell cycle regulation, and oxidative stress in fungi. In Aspergillus fumigatus, it was shown that PHZA is under the control of the transcription factor Skn...
  8. Distribution, expression and expansion of Aspergillus fumigatus LINE-like retrotransposon populations in clinical and environmental isolates...

    Fungal Genetics and Biology 64:36 (2014) PMID 24440682

    We investigate, in clinical and environmental isolates, the structure and distribution of a specific class of A. fumigatus long interspersed nuclear element (LINE)-like retrotransposons occupying subtelomeric loci in the A. fumigatus genome, and probe their stability in response to laboratory- and h...
  9. Combinatorial function of velvet and AreA in transcriptional regulation of nitrate utilization and secondary metabolism.

    Fungal Genetics and Biology 62:78 (2014) PMID 24240057

    We report a previously unrecognized role of the velvet complex in regulation of nitrate metabolism. F. oxysporum mutants lacking VeA or LaeA, two key components of the complex, were impaired in growth on the non-preferred nitrogen sources nitrate and nitrite. Both velvet and the general nitrogen res...
  10. Two members of the Ustilago maydis velvet family influence teliospore development and virulence on maize seedlings.

    Fungal Genetics and Biology 61:111 (2013) PMID 24064149

    We predicted, therefore, that velvet homologs in the basidiomycetous plant pathogen Ustilago maydis would regulate sexual spore development, which is also associated with plant disease progression in this fungus. To test this hypothesis, we studied the function of three U. maydis velvet genes, umv1,...
