Sphingobacterium cladoniae sp. nov., isolated from lichen, Cladonia sp., and emended description of Sphingobacterium siyangense.
A phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain No.6(T) fell within the evolutionary group encompassed by the genus Sphingobacterium.
Lichen Secondary Metabolites in Flavocetraria cucullata Exhibit Anti-Cancer Effects on Human Cancer Cells through the Induction of Apoptosis and Suppression of Tumorigenic Potentials
It is found that among 17 lichens species, F. cucullata exhibited the most potent cytotoxicity in several human cancer cells, and its subcomponent, usnic acid together with additional component, exert anti-cancer effects onhuman cancer cells through the induction of apoptosis and the inhibition of EMT.
Novel effects of TiO2 photocatalytic ozonation on control of postharvest fungal spoilage of kiwifruit
Integrating coalescent and phylogenetic approaches to delimit species in the lichen photobiont Trebouxia.
Agrobacterium tumefaciens-Mediated Transformation of the Lichen Fungus, Umbilicaria muehlenbergii
A number of putative mutants affected in colony color, size, and/or morphology were found among these transformants, supporting the utility of Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation (ATMT) for random insertional mutagenesis of U. muehlenbergii.
Linking a Gene Cluster to Atranorin, a Major Cortical Substance of Lichens, through Genetic Dereplication and Heterologous Expression
A comprehensive catalog of PKS families of the genus Cladonia is provided and a biosynthetic gene cluster from lichens is functionally characterized, establishing a cornerstone for studying the genetics and chemical evolution of diverse lichen substances.
New and noteworthy lichen-forming and lichenicolous fungi 2*
One new genus, i.e. Ivanpisutia S. Y. Hur, similar to the genera Carbonea and Lecidella of the Lecanoraceae, and eleven new species of lichen-forming and lichenicolous fungi are described and illustrated, compared with closely related taxa.
New monophyletic branches of the Teloschistaceae (lichen-forming Ascomycota) proved by three gene phylogeny
Seventeen robust monophyletic branches newly discovered in the phylogenetic tree of the Teloschistaceae after separate nrITS, nrLSU and mtSSU, as well as combined phylogenetic analysis are proposed…
Molecular phylogeny of placodioid lichen-forming fungi reveal a new genus, Sedelnikovaea
A molecular phylogeny based on ITS1/ITS2 and mtSSU DNA sequences is presented for lichen-forming fungi in Protoparmeliopsis and its distant relative Sedelnikovaea gen. nov. The positions of the two…
