Genomic Analysis of the Basal Lineage Fungus Rhizopus oryzae Reveals a Whole-Genome Duplication
TLDR
The order and genomic arrangement of the duplicated gene pairs and their common phylogenetic origin provide evidence for an ancestral whole-genome duplication (WGD) event that resulted in the expansion of multiple gene families related to cell growth and signal transduction, as well as secreted aspartic protease and subtilase protein families, which are known fungal virulence factors.
Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae from Recent Outbreaks of Kiwifruit Bacterial Canker Belong to Different Clones That Originated in China
TLDR
The analyses of the core genome SNPs and the ICEs support the hypothesis of an independent Chinese origin for both the Italian and the New Zealand outbreaks and suggest the Chilean strains also originate from China.
Elimination of the amphibian chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis by Archey's frog Leiopelma archeyi.
TLDR
Archey's frog appears to have a low level of susceptibility to the clinical effects of chytridiomycosis and can apparently be treated with topical chloramphenicol with no acute adverse reactions, however, the small number of specimens treated here requires that more extensive testing be done to confirm the safety of chlorampenicol.
Development of a Multiple Loci Variable Number of Tandem Repeats Analysis (MLVA) to Unravel the Intra-Pathovar Structure of Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae Populations Worldwide
TLDR
A worldwide collection of 142 strains was analyzed by MLVA, chosen as investigative technique for its efficacy, reproducibility, simplicity and low cost and represents a very promising first-line assay for large-scale routine genotyping, prior to whole genome sequencing of only the most relevant samples.
Tyrosine Recombinase Retrotransposons and Transposons.
TLDR
It is suggested that the YR retrotransposons arose from the combination of a crypton-like YR DNA transposon and the RT/RH encoding sequence of a Retrotransposon, which must have occurred at a very early point in the evolution of eukaryotes.
Complete Genome Sequence of the Kiwifruit Pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae Biovar 5, Originating from Japan
TLDR
The first complete genome sequence of a copper-resistant biovar 5 strain of a bacterial pathogen of kiwifruit, Pseudomonas syringae pv.
Conjugation inPseudomonas syringaepv.actinidiae(Psa)
TLDR
Methods were developed to transfer the ~100,000-bp ICEs and large (> 100,000 bp) plasmids from the copper-resistant isolates to a sensitive recipient strain using natural conjugation, showing that these elements were necessary and sufficient to confer copper resistance.
Engineered biosynthesis of cyclotides
ABSTRACT A system based on cyanobacterial split inteins, SICLOPPs (Split Intein Circular Ligation of Proteins and Peptides), has been used to synthesise a small natively cyclic plant protein, kalata
