Global Gene Expression and Focused Knockout Analysis Reveals Genes Associated with Fungal Fruiting Body Development in Neurospora crassa
It was found that functionally unclassified proteins accounted for most upregulated genes, whereas downregulated genes were enriched for diverse functions, and genes associated with developmental traits exhibited stage-specific peaks of expression. Expand
Root inoculation with a forest soil streptomycete leads to locally and systemically increased resistance against phytopathogens in Norway spruce.
Host responses indicate that GB 4-2 induces both local and systemic defense responses in Norway spruce, and promotes mycelial growth of the phytopathogenic fungus but induced plant defense responses. Expand
Suppression of plant defence response by a mycorrhiza helper bacterium.
AcH 505 promotes plant root colonization by Heterobasidion strains that are tolerant to antifungal metabolites produced by the bacterium, which may result from unknown bacterial factors that suppress the plant defence response. Expand
Biosynthesis and genomic analysis of medium-chain hydrocarbon production by the endophytic fungal isolate Nigrograna mackinnonii E5202H
The results exemplify the capacity of endophytic fungi to produce novel natural products that may have many uses, such as biologically derived fuels and commodity chemicals. Expand
Gene Expression Differences among Three Neurospora Species Reveal Genes Required for Sexual Reproduction in Neurospora crassa
The results provide insight into the genetic basis of Neurospora sexual reproduction, which is also of great importance with regard to other multicellular ascomycetes, including perithecium-forming pathogens, such as Claviceps purpurea, Ophiostoma ulmi, and Glomerella graminicola. Expand
WS-5995 B, an antifungal agent inducing differential gene expression in the conifer pathogen Heterobasidion annosum but not in Heterobasidion abietinum
Differences in antibiotic sensitivity between two isolates belonging to two species, H. annosum 005 and H. abietinum 331, indicate considerable variations in response to bacterial metabolites by the isolates of the conifer pathogen. Expand
Antiamoebins, myrocin B and the basis of antifungal antibiosis in the coprophilous fungus Stilbella erythrocephala (syn. S. fimetaria).
It is concluded that antiamoebins are responsible for antibiosis in dung colonized by S. erythrocephala. Expand
Plant behavior upon contact with streptomycetes
It is shown here that root inoculation with belowground bacteria, filamentous gram-positive streptomycetes, can induce plant defence responses, which can occur belowground in the roots, but also aboveground, in the leaves, and include priming (sensitizing) like characters. Expand
Differential impact of nutrition on developmental and metabolic gene expression during fruiting body development in Neurospora crassa.
Interestingly, metabolic effects of the media were also large in magnitude during late perithecial development, at which stage the lower expression in CA presumably reflected the continued intake of diverse complex initial compounds, diminishing the need for expression of anabolic pathways. Expand

Antiamoebins I, III and XVI as well as several others in minor amounts were produced by four strains of the coprophilous fungus Stilbella erythrocephala (syn. S. fimetaria) in its natural substrateExpand
