Cryptococcus terrestris sp. nov. (Basidiomycota, Agaricomycotina, Tremellomycetes, Tremellales) is typified by CJDX4 Y23(T) (=CBS 10810(T) =NRRL Y-48451(T)), isolated from forest soil in Oklahoma, USA. This species is most readily identified by the sequence of the D1/D2 domain region of the 26S rDNA and ITS (internal transcribed spacer) region. Additional(More)
The Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae genome contains at least 22 regions with a variable number of tandem nucleotide repeats (VNTRs) within coding DNA sequences (CDSs). In this work, the VNTR-containing CDSs were analysed in order to evaluate their degree of variation, possible correlations with antigenic properties, and their potential to be used as a basis for a(More)
Metarhizium anisopliae is a well-characterized biocontrol agent of a wide range of plagues, including insects and acari. To identify genes involved in the infection process, representational difference analysis was performed using cDNA generated from germinated conidia of M. anisopliae in the tick Boophilus microplus cuticle, and cDNA generated during(More)
Cryptococcus neoformans causes the second most common opportunistic infection in patients with AIDS. In Brazil, 4.5% of the AIDS-related opportunistic infections are caused by C. neoformans and all varieties are recognized as etiological agents of cryptococcosis. This pathogen is a ubiquitous environmental yeast, commonly associated with avian excreta and(More)
The entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae contains three superoxide dismutases. One of these enzymes was purified and partially characterized as a CuZnSOD. The enzyme has an estimated molecular mass of 30690 Da and a specific activity of 3838.89 Umg(-1). SDS-PAGE and 2D gels show a single band of protein in the fractions eluted from the gel(More)
