Characterization and expression analysis of the WRKY gene family in moso bamboo
This study identified 121 WRKY TFs in moso bamboo, including five novel members that were not annotated in the Phyllostachys edulis genomic database, and revealed that a large number of PheWRKY genes varied significantly under cold or drought stress treatments, which could be defined as abiotic stress-responsive genes.

Antioxidant activities of extract and fractions from Tuber indicum Cooke & Massee
Abstract The antioxidant activities of ethanolic crude extract (ECE) and its four different solvent sub-fractions (namely, petroleum ether fraction (PEF), ethyl acetate fraction (EAF), n -butylExpand
Lophodermium pini-mugonis sp. nov. on needles of Pinus mugo from the Alps based on morphological and molecular data
An analysis of the internal transcribed spaces of rDNA showed that Lophodermium pini-mugonis is, sister to Lopodermium autumnale and distantly related to other Lop Rhodermium species on pines. Expand
A new species of Melanospora on truffles from China
The new species Melanospora subterranea is described from China, based on morphological and phylogenetic analyses, and its host range indicates that the new species might be a disease threat to commercially exploited European truffles including Tuber melanosporum and Tuber magnatum. Expand
A new species of Lophodermium associated with the needle cast of Cathay silver fir
An analysis of the internal transcribed spacer of rDNA shows that L. cathayae is closely related to L. pinastri and that further study is required in order to update the circumscription of L.Pinastri. Expand
Nematococcomyces rhododendri, a new species in a new genus of the Rhytismatales from China.
A fungus belonging to the Rhytismatales found on twigs of Rhododendron lutescens in Yunnan, southwestern China, is described as a new species in a new genus. It is characterized by Coccomyces-likeExpand
Diversity and Antimicrobial Activity of Culturable Endophytic Fungi Isolated from Moso Bamboo Seeds
This study is the first report on the antimicrobial activity of endophytic fungi associated with moso bamboo seeds, and the results show that they could be exploited as a potential source of bioactive compounds and plant defense activators. Expand
Characterization and Phylogenetic Analysis of the Mitochondrial Genome of Shiraia bambusicola Reveals Special Features in the Order of Pleosporales
Shiraia bambusicola P. Henn. is a pathogenic fungus of bamboo, and its fruiting bodies are regarded as folk medicine. We determined and analyzed its complete mitochondrial DNA sequence (circular DNAExpand
Selection of reference genes from Shiraia bambusicola for RT-qPCR analysis under different culturing conditions
A group of novel housekeeping genes from S. bambusicola with more stable properties than before was explored, and these results could also provide a practical approach for other filamentous fungi. Expand
Four rhytismataceous ascomycetes on needles of pine from China
Three species of Rhytismataceae are described from needles of pines from China, reported for the first time for China, described, and illustrated. Expand
