Detection of betaproteobacteria inside the mycelium of the fungus Mortierella elongata.
The 16S rRNA gene was successfully amplified with DNA extracted directly from the endobacterium-containing fungal strains and all sequences were related to that of Candidatus Glomeribacter gigasporarum in the family Burkholderiaceae.
A mutualistic symbiosis between a dark septate endophytic fungus, Heteroconium chaetospira, and a nonmycorrhizal plant, Chinese cabbage
The existence of a fungus establishing a mutualistic association with a nonmycorrhizal Cruciferae plant is shown for the first time, and it is suggested that the fungus obtained carbon, mainly as sucrose, from the host plant.
Mycoavidus cysteinexigens gen. nov., sp. nov., an endohyphal bacterium isolated from a soil isolate of the fungus Mortierella elongata.
A comparative analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain B1-EBT forms a distinct clade in the family Burkholderiaceae, encompassing a group of endosymbionts associated with several soil isolates of M. elongata.
Effects of Pathogen Density, Soil Moisture, and Soil pH on Biological Control of Clubroot in Chinese Cabbage by Heteroconium chaetospira.
H. chaetospira is an effective biocontrol agent against clubroot in Chinese cabbage at a low to moderate soil moisture range and a pathogen resting spore density of 105 (or lower resting spores per gram of soil in situ) and at pathogen density.
Core microbiomes for sustainable agroecosystems
In an era of ecosystem degradation and climate change, maximizing microbial functions in agroecosystems has become a prerequisite for the future of global agriculture. However, managing species-rich
Suppression of Verticillium Wilt in Eggplant by Some Fungal Root Endophytes
Isolates belonging to Mycelium radicis atrovirens, including Phialocephala fortinii, were the most prevalent in all the five bait plants.
A New Fungal Endophyte, Scolecobasidium humicola, Promotes Tomato Growth under Organic Nitrogen Conditions
Two isolates of S. humicola, H2-2 and F1-3, have shown the ability to increase plant biomass with an organic nitrogen source and could help to improve plant growth with organic nitrogen sources.
The role of a dark septate endophytic fungus, Veronaeopsis simplex Y34, in Fusarium disease suppression in Chinese cabbage
A dark septate endophytic fungus isolated from Yaku Island, Japan, was evaluated in vitro for the ability to suppress Fusarium disease and showed the dominance of V. simplex Y34, which became established in the rhizosphere and out-competed F. oxysporum.
Draft Genome Sequence of the Betaproteobacterial Endosymbiont Associated with the Fungus Mortierella elongata FMR23-6
The draft genome sequence of the endobacterium is reported, which indicates that the fungus Mortierella elongata FMR23-6 harbors an endobacteria inside its mycelium.
