Pil1, an eisosome organizer, plays an important role in the recruitment of synaptojanins and amphiphysins to facilitate receptor-mediated endocytosis in yeast.
TLDR
It is established that Pil1 is involved in the recruitment of endocytic proteins to optimize endocytosis. Expand
Seagrass‐associated fungal communities show distance decay of similarity that has implications for seagrass management and restoration
TLDR
The fungal communities associated with the seagrass Enhalus acoroides collected from Singapore and Peninsular Malaysia are investigated, showing a significant pattern of distance decay, indicating dispersal limitations and/or differences in habitat type are contributing to the observed biogeographic patterns. Expand
Fungi associated with mesophotic macroalgae from the ‘Au‘au Channel, west Maui are differentiated by host and overlap terrestrial communities
TLDR
This work demonstrates yet another understudied habitat with a moderate diversity of fungi that should be considered when estimating global fungal diversity. Expand
Foliar microbiome transplants confer disease resistance in a critically-endangered plant
TLDR
The results demonstrate the effectiveness of a simple low-tech method for transferring beneficial microbes from healthy wild plants to greenhouse-raised plants with reduced symbiotic microbiota that was effective at reducing disease, and in conferring increased survival to an out-planted population of critically endangered plants. Expand
Characterisation of coral-associated bacterial communities in an urbanised marine environment shows strong divergence over small geographic scales
The coral holobiont contains a diverse community of bacteria that have been widely acknowledged as a major contributor in the maintenance of host health and in promoting reef resilience underExpand
Seagrass‐associated fungal communities follow Wallace's line, but host genotype does not structure fungal community
TLDR
Fungi are generally considered to have excellent dispersal potentials and marine fungi have the potential to disperse far and wide in an environment that has no obvious barriers to dispersal, but it is shown that fungal communities on either side of Wallace’s line are significantly different from one another. Expand
Characterization of fungal biodiversity and communities associated with the reef macroalga Sargassum ilicifolium reveals fungal community differentiation according to geographic locality and algal
TLDR
These unclassified fungi highlight the need to look beyond terrestrial ecosystems in well-studied regions of the world, and to fully characterize fungal biodiversity in hotspots such as Southeast Asia for better understanding the roles they play in promoting and maintaining life on the authors' planet. Expand
First records of Protosteloid Amoebae (Eumycetozoa) from the Democratic Republic of the Congo
TLDR
The high species diversity observed on a limited number of samples suggests that the investigated region is, together with Hawai’i, one of the world’s tropical hotspots for Protosteloid Amoebae. Expand
Fungal communities living within leaves of native Hawaiian dicots are structured by landscape-scale variables as well as by host plants
TLDR
Endophyte community structure was most strongly associated with host plant phylogeny and evapotranspiration, and was also significantly associated with NDVI, elevation, and solar radiation, while bipartite network analysis revealed that the five islands the authors sampled each harbored significantly specialized endophyte communities.
