Direct analysis of wood-inhabiting fungi using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis of amplified ribosomal DNA
Four different primer pairs were designed for the preferential PCR amplification of fungal SSU rDNA directly from environmental samples. Most of the amplification products obtained from a referenceExpand

Taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae and other recent progress in partitivirus research.
Phylogenetic analyses have prompted a taxonomic reorganization of family Partitiviridae (encapsidated, bisegmented dsRNA viruses that infect plants, fungi, or protozoa), the focus of this review.Expand

Genetic variation in Phlebiopsis gigantea as detected with random amplified microsatellite (RAMS) markers
Random Amplified Microsatellite (RAMS) markers were used to detect variation among Phlebiopsis gigantea isolates from seven European countries. The scoring of 26 bands revealed five markers common toExpand

Investigations on Heterobasidion annosum s.lat. in central and eastern Asia with the aid of mating tests and DNA fingerprinting
To investigate the taxonomy of Heterobasidion in Eurasia, 49 specimens belonging to H. annosum sensu lato from Asia were identified with the aid of mating tests. Most of the specimens originated fromExpand

Diagnosis and discovery of fungal viruses using deep sequencing of small RNAs.
Analysis of virus-derived small RNAs with high-throughput sequencing has been successful for detecting novel viruses in plants and invertebrates. However, the applicability of this method has notExpand

A novel putative partitivirus of the saprotrophic fungus Heterobasidion ecrustosum infects pathogenic species of the Heterobasidion annosum complex.
We characterized the bisegmented genome of a putative double-stranded (ds) RNA virus from a Chinese isolate of the fungus Heterobasidion ecrustosum, a member of the Heterobasidion insulare speciesExpand

Population structure of a novel putative mycovirus infecting the conifer root-rot fungus Heterobasidion annosum sensu lato.
We describe a novel putative mycovirus infecting the conifer root-rot fungus Heterobasidion annosum sensu lato. This virus, designated as Heterobasidion RNA virus 6 (HetRV6), is taxonomically distantExpand

Species of Heterobasidion host a diverse pool of partitiviruses with global distribution and interspecies transmission.
We investigated the geographic occurrence and genetic diversity of partitiviruses among 247 Heterobasidion specimens representing seven species and originating from Europe, Asia, and North America.Expand

ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profile: Partitiviridae
The Partitiviridae is a family of small, isometric, non-enveloped viruses with bisegmented double-stranded (ds) RNA genomes of 3–4.8 kbp. The two genome segments are individually encapsidated. TheExpand

Two viruses of Heterobasidion confer beneficial, cryptic or detrimental effects to their hosts in different situations
We investigated the effects of two recently described dsRNA mycoviruses, HetRV3-ec1 and HetRV6-ab6, on Heterobasidion wood decay fungi. The viruses originally inhabited Heterobasidion ecrustosum andExpand
