Transfer of the Members of the Genus Brachiola (Microsporidia) to the Genus Anncaliia Based on Ultrastructural and Molecular Data
The combination of molecular and morphological data provided clear evidence that these microsporidia belong to the same genus and therefore, warranted emendation of the genus Anncaliia and establishments of the following new combinations.
Establishment of the new genus Paranosema based on the ultrastructure and molecular phylogeny of the type species Paranosema grylli Gen. Nov., Comb. Nov. (Sokolova, Selezniov, Dolgikh, Issi 1994),
Comparative phylogenetic analysis using rDNA shows Nosema grylli to be closely related to another orthopteran microsporidian, Nosema locustae, and to Nosema whitei from the confused flour beetle, Tribolium confusum, which is a sister taxon to these three Nosema species.
Ultrastructural analysis supports transferring Nosema whitei Weiser 1953 to the genus Paranosema and creation a new combination, Paranosema whitei.
Comparative studies of these three related species provide a good example of the consistency of morphological and sequence data, and support both the placement of N. whitei inside the genus Paranosema and the validity of the new combination ParanoseMA whitei (Weiser).
Activities of Enzymes of Carbohydrate and Energy Metabolism of the Spores of the Microsporidian, Nosema grylli
The results suggest the catabolism of carbohydrates in microsporidia occurs via the Embden‐Meyerhof pathway, and glycerol 3‐phosphate dehydrogenase may reoxidize NADH which is produced by glyceraldehyde 3‐ phosphate dehydration in glycolysis.
Outline of Fungi and fungus-like taxa
This article provides an outline of the classification of the kingdom Fungi (including fossil fungi), and treats 19 phyla of fungi, including all currently described orders of fungi.
Senoma gen. n. , a new genus of microsporidia, with the type species Senoma globulifera comb. N. (syn. Issia globulifera Issi et Pankova 1983) from the malaria mosquito Anopheles messeae Fall
The monomorphic species I. globulifera does notatisfy the criteria of the genus Issia and a new genus Senoma should be established.
Ultrastructure and molecular phylogenetics of Helmichia lacustris, a microsporidium with an uncoiled isofilar polar filament
H. lacustris and Euplotespora binucleata form a cluster nested among terrestrial and aquatic microsporidia with well-developed coiled polar filaments, suggesting that an uncoiled polar filament in this species is a result of reduction, rather than a “primitive” character.
Gurleya sokolovi sp. n., a microsporidian parasite of the water mite Limnochares aquatica (Linnaeus) (Acarina: Hydrachnellae), and a note on a gregarine infection in the same mite
Abstract A new microsporidian, Gurleya sokolovi sp. n., is described from the water mite Limnochares aquatica (Linnaeus). The protozoan invades the hemocytes and adipose tissue of the host, and is
[A new genus of microsporidans Cristulospora gen. n. (Amblyospiridae) with 3 new species from blood-sucking mosquitoes in Uzbekistan].
Three new species of microsporidans of the new genus Cristulospora are described from mosquitoes of the genera Culex and Aedes, which differs from other amblyosporids in the presence of appendages in shape of magnificent plumes on both poles of octospores, which are distinct without staining.
Fractionation of Different Life Cycle Stages of Microsporidia Nosema grylli from Crickets Gryllus bimaculatus by Centrifugation in Percoll Density Gradient for Biochemical Research
ABSTRACT. A new method of fractionation and purification of different life cycle stages of microsporidia Nosema grylli, parasitizing the fat body of cricket Gryllus bimaculatus, by centrifugation in
