Septins AspA and AspC Are Important for Normal Development and Limit the Emergence of New Growth Foci in the Multicellular Fungus Aspergillus nidulans
TLDR
The results suggest that AspA and AspC interact with each other and are important for normal development, especially for preventing the inappropriate emergence of germ tubes and branches. Expand
Analysis of glycosylinositol phosphorylceramides expressed by the opportunistic mycopathogen Aspergillus fumigatus s⃞ Published, JLR Papers in Press, May 8, 2007.
TLDR
The glycosylinositol of Af-3b, which bears a distinctive branching Galf(β1→6) residue, is identical to that of a GIPC isolated previously from the dimorphic mycopathogen Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, but componentsAf-3a and Af-4 have novel structures. Expand
Characterization of the Aspergillus nidulans septin (asp) gene family.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that most fungal septins belong to one of four orthologous classes, which could be grouped with one of the prototypical S. cerevisiae sePTins, Cdc3, CDC10, C DC11, and Cdc12. Expand
A Septin from the Filamentous Fungus A. nidulans Induces Atypical Pseudohyphae in the Budding Yeast S. cerevisiae
TLDR
The results suggest that AspC competes with Cdc12 for incorporation into the yeast septin scaffold and once there alters cell shape by altering interactions with the formin Bni1, suggesting that septins play an important role in the morphological plasticity of fungi. Expand
Disruption of the glucosylceramide biosynthetic pathway in Aspergillus nidulans and Aspergillus fumigatus by inhibitors of UDP‐Glc:ceramide glucosyltransferase strongly affects spore germination,
TLDR
It is suggested that synthesis of GlcCer is essential for normal development of A. fumigatus and A. nidulans, a non‐pathogenic model fungus. Expand
Glycosphingolipids of the model fungus Aspergillus nidulans: characterization of GIPCs with oligo-alpha-mannose-type glycans.
TLDR
Aspergillus nidulans is a well-established nonpathogenic laboratory model for the opportunistic mycopathogen, A. fumigatus, and the possible functional roles of glycosphingolipids (GSLs) in these fungi are not addressed. Expand
Septin localization across kingdoms: three themes with variations.
TLDR
The difference in localization pattern frequency between kingdoms will probably disappear as more septins are examined in diverse organisms and tissues. Expand
The Aspergillus fumigatus cell wall is organized in domains that are remodelled during polarity establishment.
Aspergillus fumigatus is a life-threatening and increasingly frequent pathogen of the immunocompromised. Like other filamentous fungi A. fumigatus grows in a highly polar manner, adding new cell wallExpand
HEAT TOLERANCES OF FOUR SPECIES OF FIRE ANTS (HYMENOPTERA: FORMICIDAE: SOLENOPSIS)
TLDR
Minor workers of the four fire ants species found in Texas were exposed for one hour to upper critical temperatures, predicting that desert-inhabiting fire ants would exhibit higher temperature tolerances than non-desert species. Expand
Corrigendum to: Disruption of the glucosylceramide biosynthetic pathway in Aspergillus nidulans and Aspergillus fumigatus by inhibitors of UDP‐Glc: ceramide glucosyltransferase strongly affects spore
TLDR
This work aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, which aims to provide real-time information about the response of the immune system to EMTs. Expand
