Identification of a Hydrophobin Gene That is Developmentally Regulated in the Ectomycorrhizal Fungus Tricholoma terreum
ABSTRACT The symbiosis between ectomycorrhizal fungi and trees is an essential part of forest ecology and depends entirely on the communication between the two partners for establishing andExpand

Impact of maternal endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene polymorphisms on blood pressure, protein excretion and fetal outcome in pregnancy
A genetic association study was conducted to assess whether genetically determined alterations of the nitric oxide system are associated with clinical markers of pre-eclampsia. A large number ofExpand

Use of RNA fingerprinting to identify fungal genes specifically expressed during ectomycorrhizal interaction
The ecosystem soil is characterized by interactions between microorganisms and plants including mycorrhiza – mutualistic interactions between fungi and plant roots. Species of the basidiomycete genusExpand

Pathomechanismus der Contusio bulbi
We examined experimentally the pathomechanism of ocular contusion and its damaging influence on the retina. Therefore, various jabbing instruments were used with which a definite trauma can beExpand

Modulation of ethanol stress tolerance by aldehyde dehydrogenase in the mycorrhizal fungus Tricholoma vaccinum
We report the first mycorrhizal fungal aldehyde dehydrogenase gene, ald1, which was isolated from the basidiomycete Tricholoma vaccinum. The gene, encoding a protein Ald1 of 502 amino acids, isExpand

Differential regulation of multi-copper oxidases in Schizophyllum commune during sexual development
Multi-copper oxidases (MCOs) are enzymes accepting a wide range of organic and inorganic substrates. MCOs (including laccases) in lignolytic white and brown rot fungi are represented by multipleExpand

Organic acids, siderophores, enzymes and mechanical pressure for black slate bioweathering with the basidiomycete Schizophyllum commune.
Although many fungi are known to be able to perform bioweathering of rocks and minerals, little information is available concerning the role of basidiomycetes in this process. The wood-rottingExpand

Hydrophobins in the Life Cycle of the Ectomycorrhizal Basidiomycete Tricholoma vaccinum
Hydrophobins—secreted small cysteine-rich, amphipathic proteins—foster interactions of fungal hyphae with hydrophobic surfaces, and are involved in the formation of aerial hyphae. PhylogeneticExpand

Impact of maternal angiotensinogen M235T polymorphism and angiotensin-converting enzyme insertion/deletion polymorphism on blood pressure, protein excretion and fetal outcome in pregnancy
Objective To test the hypothesis that genetically determined alterations of the renin–angiotensin system are associated with hypertensive disorders in pregnancy. Methods A genetic association studyExpand

A transporter for abiotic stress and plant metabolite resistance in the ectomycorrhizal fungus Tricholoma vaccinum
Fungi exposed to toxic substances including heavy metals, xenobiotics, or secondary metabolites formed by co-occurring plants or other microorganisms require a detoxification system provided byExpand
