Characterization of aflatoxin-producing fungi outside of Aspergillus section Flavi.
TLDR
Results showed that of the new aflatoxin-producers, Aspergillus SRRC 1468 forms a strongly supported clade with A. ochraceoroseus as does Emericella SRRC 2520 with Em.
Genomic sequence of the aflatoxigenic filamentous fungus Aspergillus nomius
TLDR
This study provides a preliminary analysis of the A. nomius genome and finds that this genome sequence provides an additional evolutionary reference point for studying the genetics and biology of aflatoxigenic species production.
Characterization of the Aspergillus ochraceoroseus aflatoxin/sterigmatocystin biosynthetic gene cluster
TLDR
The genetic organization of the AF/ST biosynthetic cluster in A. ochraceoroseus is determined and it is demonstrated that it is organized much like the A. nidulans ST gene cluster except that the region from aflN to aflW is located directly upstream of aflC and in reverse orientation such that a flW represents the distal end and aflY the proximal end of the cluster.
Draft Genome Sequence of an Aflatoxigenic Aspergillus Species, A. bombycis
TLDR
The genome of the A. bombycis Type strain was sequenced and found it to be comparable in size and in numbers of predicted genes to other sequenced Aspergilli, and showed that this species is likely heterothallic (self-infertile) and contains a single MAT1-2 gene.
Phylogenetic and morphological analysis of Aspergillus ochraceoroseus
TLDR
The morphological data support the placement of A. ochraceoroseus in subgenus Circumdati and suggest that this species produces aflatoxin and sterigmatocystin, a secondary metabolite characteristic of some members of subgenu CircumDati section Flavi, and is related more closely to the species in sub genus Nidulantes than to species from subgenulantes.
Development of Genomic Resources for the Powdery Mildew, Erysiphe pulchra.
TLDR
The first draft genome of Erysiphe pulchra, the causative agent of PM of flowering dogwood, Cornus florida, is reported, finding 102 candidate secreted effector proteins (CSEPs) in E. pulChra similar to E. necator genes that are potentially involved in disease development.
Inhibitory effects of gossypol, gossypolone, and apogossypolone on a collection of economically important filamentous fungi.
TLDR
Gossypol was an ineffectual inhibitor of aflatoxin biosynthesis in both A. flavus and A. parasiticus, and apogossyolone was the most potent a flatoxin inhibitor.
Characterization of aflatoxin-producing fungi outside of Aspergillus section Flavi
TLDR
Results showed that of the new aflatoxin-producers, Aspergillus SRRC 1468 forms a strongly supported clade with A. ochraceoroseus as does Emericella SRRC 2520 with Em.
Growth inhibitory effects of gossypol and related compounds on fungal cotton root pathogens
The effect of the terpenoids gossypol, 6‐methoxygossypol, 6,6′‐dimethoxygossypol, gossypolone and apogossypolone on growth of fungal soil pathogens was investigated. The compounds were tested at a
Genome sequence of an aflatoxigenic pathogen of Argentinian peanut, Aspergillus arachidicola
TLDR
This study sequenced the genome of the A. arachidicola type strain and found its genome size to be 38.9 Mb, and its number of predicted genes to be 12,091, which are values comparable to those in other sequenced Aspergilli.
