PIRIFORMOSPORA INDICA, GEN. ET SP. NOV., A NEW ROOT-COLONIZING FUNGUS
A new fungus isolate was discovered in an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal spore from a desert soil in India. It could easily be cultivated on various synthetic media, and formed pear-shaped chlamydos...
Sebacinales: a hitherto overlooked cosm of heterobasidiomycetes with a broad mycorrhizal potential.
TLDR
A well-resolved phylogeny of the main lineages of basidiomycetes is presented which suggests that the Sebacinaceae is the most basal group with known mycorrhizal members, and it is evident that there is a cosm of mycor Rhizal biodiversity yet to be discovered in this group.
Piriformospora indica: An Axenically Culturable Mycorrhiza-Like Endosymbiotic Fungus
TLDR
Soil microflora influence plant growth and health both beneficially and adversely by providing plant growth substances and increasing the availability of nutrients at the root zone.
Morphological and Transcriptomic Analysis of a Beetle Chemosensory System Reveals a Gnathal Olfactory Center
TLDR
The analysis of the T. castaneum chemosensory system confirms that olfactory and gustatory perception are not organotopically separated to the antennae and mouthparts, respectively, and indicates that Holometabola have evolved a wider variety of solutions to chemoreception than previously assumed.
Plant productivity determinants beyond minerals, water and light: Piriformospora indica - a revolutionary plant growth promoting fungus.
TLDR
Piriformospora indica is a newly described axenically cultivable phytopromotional endosymbiont, which mimics the capabilities of AMF, and opens up important possibility of improving symbiosis by transgenic manipulation of fungal component in a symbiosis-specific manner.
Peptidomics of the Agriculturally Damaging Larval Stage of the Cabbage Root Fly Delia radicum (Diptera: Anthomyiidae)
TLDR
The biochemical characterisation of neuropeptides from the central nervous system and neurohemal organs, as well as regulatory peptides from enteroendocrine midgut cells of the cabbage maggot are reported, leading to the development of new specific peptide-based protection methods against the cabbage root fly and its larva.
Using a marine microalga as a chassis for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) degradation
TLDR
A promising and eco-friendly solution for biological decomposition of PET waste in a saltwater-based environment is provided by using a eukaryotic microalga instead of a bacterium as a model system and the potential of the diatom system for future biotechnological applications in biological PET degradation is demonstrated.
Colonization of roots of cultivated Solanum lycopersicum by dark septate and other ascomycetous endophytes
TLDR
Six sporulating and eight sterile isolates from root endophytic fungi revealed that they belonged to different orders of Ascomycota and that the sterile dark septate endophytes did not correspond to the well known Phialocephala group.
