Hannaella pagnoccae sp. nov., a tremellaceous yeast species isolated from plants and soil.
Sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit of the rRNA gene showed that the novel species differs from Hannaella coprosmaensis and Hannaella oryzae by 36 and 46 nt substitutions, respectively. Expand
Enterobacteriaceae in mouth and cloaca of podocnemis expansa and P. Unifilis (testudines: chelonia) populations of national park of araguaia plains, Brazil.
Shigella flexnerii and Escherichia coli were the most frequent Gram-negative bacteria found in the mouth cavity and cloacae of the turtles Podocnemis expansa and P. unifilis on beaches in theExpand
Pattersoniomyces tillandsiae gen. et comb. nov.: linking sexual and asexual morphs of the only known smut fungus associated with Bromeliaceae
A new genus Pattersoniomyces is described to accommodate U. tillandsiae, the only known smut fungus associated with Bromeliaceae, and is the tenth endemic smut genus to the Americas, but the only one that occurs in both North and South America, being a truly neotropic genus. Expand
Hagleromyces gen. nov., a yeast genus in the Saccharomycetaceae, and description of Hagleromyces aurorensis sp. nov., isolated from water tanks of bromeliads.
Three strains of a novel yeast species were isolated from water tanks of a bromeliad species collected in the state of Tocantins, Brazil and showed that these novel yeasts belong to a species that is distinct from all recognized ascomycetous yeast species. Expand
Taxonomy and richness of yeasts associated with angiosperms, bryophytes, and meltwater biofilms collected in the Antarctic Peninsula
The substrates examined in this study represented an interesting habitat for the isolation and characterization of epiphytic and non-epipHYtic yeasts that colonize the Antarctic region. Expand
Occurrence of microorganisms and aflatoxins in the production of artisanal puba flour production in Tocantins, Brazil
The results showed the presence of high populations of all microbial groups screened, and ELISA and thin layer chromatography showed no occurrence of aflatoxins, differently from other studies elsewhere. Expand
This work aimed to characterize the microbiota involved in the production of puba flour in Palmas, Brazil, and to verify the presence of aflatoxins in this food product. Counts of mesophilicExpand
