Expressed sequence tags and genes associated with loline alkaloid expression by the fungal endophyte Neotyphodium uncinatum
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...
A high-affinity ammonium transporter from the mycorrhizal ascomycete Tuber borchii
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...
Variation in the fumonisin biosynthetic gene cluster in fumonisin-producing and nonproducing black aspergilli.
The ability to produce fumonisin mycotoxins varies among members of the black aspergilli. Previously, analyses of selected genes in the fumonisin biosynthetic gene (fum) cluster in black aspergilli from California grapes indicated that fumonisin-nonproducing isolates of Aspergillus welwitschiae lack...
Differences in the secretion pattern of oxidoreductases from Bjerkandera adusta induced by a phenolic olive mill extract.
The secretome of the white-rot fungus Bjerkandera adusta produced in synthetic Kirk medium was compared to that supplemented with an aqueous phenol-rich extract of dry olive mill residues (ADOR). Distinct changes in the protein composition of oxidoreductases, namely diverse class-II peroxidases and...
Genetic control of anastomosis in Podospora anserina.
We developed a new microscopy procedure to study anastomoses in the model ascomycete Podospora anserina and compared it with the previous method involving the formation of balanced heterokaryons. Both methods showed a good correlation. Heterokaryon formation was less quantifiable, but enabled to obs...
Purine utilization proteins in the Eurotiales: cellular compartmentalization, phylogenetic conservation and divergence.
We establish here the subcellular distribution of seven key intracellular enzymes, xanthine dehydrogenase (HxA), urate oxidase (UaZ), 5-hydroxy-isourate hydrolase (UaX), 2-oxo-4-hydroxy-4-carboxy ureido imidazoline decarboxylase (UaW), allantoinase (AlX), allantoicase (AaX), ureidoglycolate lyase (U...
Transcriptomic profiles of Aspergillus flavus CA42, a strain that produces small sclerotia, by decanal treatment and after recovery.
We investigated how the plant volatile decanal, a C10 fatty aldehyde, affected the growth and development of the S strain A. flavus. Decanal treatment yielded fluffy variants lacking sclerotia and conidia and exhibiting a dosage-dependent radial colony growth. We used RNA-Seq analysis to examine tra...
