Mutations That Rescue the Paralysis of Caenorhabditis elegans ric-8 (Synembryn) Mutants Activate the Gαs Pathway and Define a Third Major Branch of the Synaptic Signaling Network
TLDR
The results appear to link RIC-8 and a third major Gα pathway, the Gαs pathway, with the previously discovered Gαo and Gαq pathways of the synaptic signaling network.
Convergent, RIC-8-Dependent Gα Signaling Pathways in the Caenorhabditis elegans Synaptic Signaling Network
TLDR
It is proposed that the neuronal Gαs pathway transduces critical positional information onto the core Gαq pathway to stabilize the priming of selected synapses that are optimal for locomotion.
FungalTraits: a user-friendly traits database of fungi and fungus-like stramenopiles
TLDR
A user friendly traits and character database FungalTraits operating at genus and species hypothesis levels is introduced, designed for rapid functional assignments of environmental studies.
Leveraging single-cell genomics to expand the fungal tree of life
TLDR
Single-cell genome sequencing of eight uncultured fungal species provides insights into the phylogenetic placement of early-diverging lineages, highlights metabolic deficiencies and identifies gene expansions correlated with parasitism and unculturability.
Assessing the Potential Effects of Fungicides on Nontarget Gut Fungi (Trichomycetes) and Their Associated Larval Black Fly Hosts
TLDR
Preliminary results indicate that impacts to nontarget organisms could have far‐reaching consequences within aquatic ecosystems.
Phylogenetic and morphological analyses of the mycoparasitic genus Piptocephalis
TLDR
This study addresses two aspects: Piptocephalis systematics and analyses of the length and inter- and infraspecific variation of the nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 = ITS) region.
Understudied, underrepresented, and unknown: Methodological biases that limit detection of early diverging fungi from environmental samples
TLDR
Much of the EDF community may be missed or misidentified with “standard” metabarcoding approaches and modified techniques are needed to understand the role of these taxa in a broader ecological context.
Preliminary phylogeny of Coemansia (Kickxellales), with descriptions of four new species from Taiwan
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on a combined data set of D1–D2 domains of nuc 28S ribosomal RNA (rDNA) and partial nuc 18S rDNA identifies several independent evolutionary lineages within Coemansia and suggests that Spirodactylon aureum and Kickxella alabastrina may be nested within the genus CoemANSia.
Resolving Relationships at the Animal-Fungal Divergence: A Molecular Phylogenetic Approach for Understanding the Ecology and Evolution of the Protist Trichomycetes
TLDR
This paper presents a meta-analysis of the building blocks of identity and the role of identity politics in the development of nation states in the 21st Century.
