We report here the presence of a novel double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) virus in an isolate (R0959) of the fungus Rhizoctonia cerealis, the causal agent of sharp eyespot of wheat in China. Sequence analysis showed that the dsRNA segment is 17,486 bp long and contains a single open reading frame (ORF) with the potential to encode a protein of 5,747 amino acids.(More)
Inhibitors of apoptosis proteins (IAPs) are critically important in the regulation of unicellular yeast and metazoan apoptosis. All IAPs contain one to three baculovirus IAP repeat (BIR) domains, which are essential for the anti-apoptotic activity of the IAPs. A homolog of IAPs, CpBir1, which bears two BIR domains, was recently identified from the chestnut(More)
Iron is essential for all organisms. Bacteria have devolved sophisticated systems to maintain intracellular iron homeostasis. FpvCDEF(PA2407-2410) has been reported as an ABC transporter involved in pyoverdine-Fe uptake which does not affect growth under iron-limiting condition, when it is deleted in PAO1. In this study, we proved that fpvCDEF and(More)
CHV1-CN280 is a North China isolate of cryphonectria hypovirus 1 (CHV1), which has high horizontal transmission ability. The complete genomic sequence of CHV1-CN280 was determined and analyzed. Compared with other reported CHV1s, the genome of CHV1-CN280 shows some significantly different characteristics. The junction of the two open reading frames (ORFs)(More)
