Isolation and biological activities of two host-specific toxins from the tangerine pathotype of Alternaria alternata
- K. Kohmoto, Y. Itoh, S. Nakatsuka
Two host-specific toxins (HSTs), ACT-toxin Ib and Ic, were isolated from culture filtrates of Alternaria alternata affecting tangerines and mandarins. The biological characteristics of ACT-toxin Ib…
Diversity and systematics of the sequestrate genus Octaviania in Japan: two new subgenera and eleven new species
- T. Orihara, M.E. Smith, N. Shimomura, K. Iwase, N. Maekawa
- 16 May 2012
The diversity and phylogeny of Japanese Octaviania specimens are investigated using a multifaceted approach including scanning and transmission electron microscopy as well as analysis of nuclear ribosomal DNA and EF-1α (tef1) sequences.
Combined molecular and morphological data for improving phylogenetic hypothesis in Dacrymycetes
- T. Shirouzu, D. Hirose, F. Oberwinkler, N. Shimomura, N. Maekawa, S. Tokumasu
- 1 September 2013
A new genus is proposed, Unilacryma, for D. unisporus, a unique species having predominantly non-bifurcate basidia and subglobose to ovoid basidiospores with transverse and longitudinal septa in molecular phylogenies of Dacrymycetes.
Taxonomic reconsideration of a sequestrate fungus, Octaviania columellifera, with the proposal of a new genus, Heliogaster, and its phylogenetic relationships in the Boletales
- T. Orihara, Fumiko Sawada, K. Iwase
- 1 January 2010
The morphological reevaluation and molecular analyses revealed that O. columellifera shares its lineage with the boletoid mushroom-forming Xerocomus chrysenteron complex and that it does not form a monophyletic clade with other Octaviania species.
