Rapid identification of Ochroconis gallopava by a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) method.
TLDR
The LAMP method successfully detected the gene from both fungal DNA and experimentally infected brains and spleens of mice and will be helpful in the diagnosis of O. gallopava infection.
Pathogenicity and virulence of Candida dubliniensis: comparison with C. albicans.
TLDR
Results clearly indicated that C. dubliniensis is less virulence than C. albicans, a newly described fungus that is frequently isolated from the oral cavities of HIV-positive patients.
Trichosporon Species Isolated from Guano Samples Obtained from Bat-Inhabited Caves in Japan
TLDR
Yeasts collected from bat guano samples from 20 bat-inhabited limestone and volcanic caves located in 11 prefectures in Japan suggest that Trichosporon spp.
Pathogenicity of Ochroconis gallopava isolated from hot springs in Japan and a review of published reports
TLDR
Four strains of Ochroconis gallopava from 3 out of 15 Japanese hot springs were isolated and had fatal outcome in experimentally infected mice intravenously with severe invasiveness to brains and kidneys, suggesting that O.Gallopava habitats in hot springs could be one of sources for infection.
Development of cycling probe-based real-time PCR system to detect Fusarium species and Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC).
TLDR
The new real-time PCR system based on the cycling probe technology could provide a rapid and precise diagnostic tool for early diagnosis, which is necessary for appropriate treatment and improvement of prognosis of disseminated fusariosis.
Aspergillus mycotoxins and their effect on the host.
TLDR
It is becoming evident that gliotoxin is produced in the infected organs of patients of aspergillosis at a significant level.
NikA/TcsC Histidine Kinase Is Involved in Conidiation, Hyphal Morphology, and Responses to Osmotic Stress and Antifungal Chemicals in Aspergillus fumigatus
TLDR
Although the signal transduction network related to NikA seems complicated, NikA plays a crucial role in several aspects of A. fumigatus physiology and, to a certain extent, modulates the HOG pathway.
Immunosuppressive substances in Aspergillus fumigatus culture filtrate
TLDR
Results indicate that gliotoxin in the culture filtrates may be responsible for part of the immunosuppressive activity, but some other components produced by A. fumigatus contribute, in an additive or synergistic manner, to the virulence of the fungus.
Characteristics of severe asthma with fungal sensitization.
TLDR
Severe asthma with fungal sensitization is characterized by early onset of disease and high serum levels of interleukin-33, and multiple fungal sensitizations are associated with poor asthma control.
Epidemiological and Genomic Landscape of Azole Resistance Mechanisms in Aspergillus Fungi
TLDR
This review presents recent advances in the understanding of azole resistance mechanisms particularly in Aspergillus fumigatus and provides an overview of the genome sequences of non-fumicatus species, focusing on the proteins related to azole resistant mechanisms.
