A novel strain, R2A16-10(T), was isolated from greenhouse soil in Yeoju, Korea. The taxonomy of strain R2A16-10(T) was studied by using polyphasic methods. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses, strain R2A16-10(T) was found to be phylogenetically related to type strains of Dyella species (96.7-96.9 %), Frateuria aurantia DSM 6220(T) (96.5 %),(More)
A mesophilic bacterium, strain 15-52(T), was isolated from the rhizosphere of Chinese cabbage (Brassica campestris). On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic characteristics, the bacterium was identified as representing a novel species belonging to the genus Pedobacter. The strain is non-flagellated, non-spore-forming and grows at temperatures in the range(More)
The Cordyceps species have been widely used for treating various cancer diseases. Although the Cordyceps species have been widely known as an alternative anticancer remedy, which compounds are responsible for their anticancer activity is not fully understood. In this study, therefore, we examined the anticancer activity of 5 isolated compounds derived from(More)
Cordyceps species including Cordyceps bassiana are a notable anti-cancer dietary supplement. Previously, we identified several compounds with anti-cancer activity from the butanol fraction (Cb-BF) of Cordyceps bassiana. To expand the structural value of Cb-BF-derived anti-cancer drugs, we employed various chemical moieties to produce a novel Cb-BF-derived(More)
In the past two decades, European ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) have been severely damaged due to ash dieback disease, which is caused by the fungal species Hymenoscyphus fraxineus (Chalara fraxinea in the anamorphic stage). Recent molecular phylogenetic and population genetic studies have suggested that this fungus has been introduced from Asia to Europe.(More)
The earliest pre-Linnaean fungal genera are briefly discussed here with special emphasis on the nomenclatural connection with the genus Cordyceps Fr. Since its valid publication under the basidiomycetous genus Clavaria Vaill. ex L. (Clavaria militaris L. Sp. Pl. 2:1182, 1753), the genus Cordyceps has undergone nomenclatural changes in the post-Linnaean era,(More)
To characterize genes involved in fruit body development, two complementary DNA (cDNA) libraries were constructed from RNA isolated from liquid-cultured mycelia and fruit bodies of Pleurotus ostreatus. Using single-pass sequencing of cDNA clones, 952 and 1069 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) were generated from liquid-cultured mycelia and fruit body cDNA(More)
Sanghuang is a medicinal mushroom that has gained particular attention in Korea. It has been extensively studied for the past few decades as a natural immune booster and cancer suppressor. Although the scientific name, Phellinus linteus, has been commonly used to refer to the sanghuang mushroom, the species identity of sanghuang has been called into(More)
