A geminivirus-related DNA mycovirus that confers hypovirulence to a plant pathogenic fungus
The discovery of an ssDNA mycovirus from the plant pathogenic fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum enhances the potential of exploring fungal viruses as valuable tools for molecular manipulation of fungi and for plant disease control and expands the knowledge of global virus ecology and evolution.
Effect of volatile substances of Streptomyces platensis F-1 on control of plant fungal diseases
Evolutionary genomics of mycovirus-related dsRNA viruses reveals cross-family horizontal gene transfer and evolution of diverse viral lineages
This study provides an insight into the phylogeny and evolution of mycovirus-related dsRNA viruses and reveals that the occurrence of HGT between different virus species and the development of multipartite genomes during evolution are important macroevolutionary mechanisms in ds RNA viruses.
Diversity and biocontrol potential of endophytic fungi in Brassica napus
Effects of volatile substances of Streptomyces globisporus JK-1 on control of Botrytis cinerea on tomato fruit.
A Secretory Protein of Necrotrophic Fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum That Suppresses Host Resistance
The results suggested that SSITL is an effector possibly and plays significant role in the suppression of jasmonic/ethylene (JA/ET) signal pathway mediated resistance at the early stage of infection.
Widespread Horizontal Gene Transfer from Double-Stranded RNA Viruses to Eukaryotic Nuclear Genomes
The findings imply that horizontal transfer of double-stranded RNA viral genes is widespread among eukaryotes and may give rise to functionally important new genes, thus entailing that RNA viruses may play significant roles in the evolution of eukARYotes.

It is demonstrated that a (−)ssRNA virus can occur naturally in fungi and enhance the understanding of the ecology and evolution of (−)SSRNA viruses.
Widespread Horizontal Gene Transfer from Circular Single-stranded DNA Viruses to Eukaryotic Genomes
It is concluded that the replication initiation protein (Rep)-related sequences of geminiviruses, nanoviruses and circovirus have been frequently transferred to a broad range of eukaryotic species, including plants, fungi, animals and protists, and sheds light on the origin and evolution of these viruses.
Leaf Epicuticular Wax Chemicals of the Japanese Knotweed Fallopia japonica as Oviposition Stimulants for Ostrinia latipennis
It was demonstrated that both n-alkanes and free fatty acids in leaf epicuticular wax of F. japonica are naturally occurring oviposition stimulants for O. latipennis.
