Towards a unified paradigm for sequence‐based identification of fungi
The nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region is the formal fungal barcode and in most cases the marker of choice for the exploration of fungal diversity in environmental samples.Expand

Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein regulates podosomes in primary human macrophages.
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASp) is a hematopoietic-specific, multidomain protein whose mutation is responsible for the immunodeficiency disorder Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. WASp contains aExpand

Sebacinales: a hitherto overlooked cosm of heterobasidiomycetes with a broad mycorrhizal potential.
Within the basidiomycetes, the vast majority of known mycorrhizal species are homobasidiomycetes. It was therefore surprising when molecular and ultrastructural studies revealed a broad diversity ofExpand

Sebacinales are common mycorrhizal associates of Ericaceae.
Previous reports of sequences of Sebacinales (basal Hymenomycetes) from ericoid mycorrhizas raised the question as to whether Sebacinales are common mycorrhizal associates of Ericaceae, which areExpand

Quantitative trait loci for water-soluble carbohydrates and associations with agronomic traits in wheat
Several environmental factors including drought and disease can reduce leaf area and photosynthesis during grain-filling to decrease grain yield and kernel weight of cereal crops. Water-solubleExpand

The root endophytic fungus Piriformospora indica requires host cell death for proliferation during mutualistic symbiosis with barley
Fungi of the recently defined order Sebacinales (Basidiomycota) are involved in a wide spectrum of mutualistic symbioses (including mycorrhizae) with various plants, thereby exhibiting a uniqueExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of the downy mildews (Peronosporales) and related groups based on nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
In order to investigate phylogenetic relationships of the Peronosporomycetes (Oomycetes), nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences containing the D1 and D2 region were analyzed of 92 speciesExpand

Phylogeny of the rust fungi: an approach using nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
Sequence data from nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA was used to infer phylogenetic relationships of selected genera of the Uredinales. We investigated 52 rust fungi representing nine families andExpand

Sebacinales Everywhere: Previously Overlooked Ubiquitous Fungal Endophytes
Inconspicuous basidiomycetes from the order Sebacinales are known to be involved in a puzzling variety of mutualistic plant-fungal symbioses (mycorrhizae), which presumably involve transport ofExpand

The cantharelloid clade: dealing with incongruent gene trees and phylogenetic reconstruction methods.
We reassessed the circumscription of the cantharelloid clade and identified monophyletic groups by using nLSU, nSSU, mtSSU and RPB2 sequence data. Results agreed with earlier studies that placed theExpand
