While Inonotus obliquus produces a diverse range of bioactive metabolites in its natural habitats, it accumulates less in its submerged cultures. We show here that coculture of I. obliquus with Phellinus punctatus resulted in less production of mycelial biomass but an increased accumulation of phenolic compounds, melanins, and lanostane-type triterpenoids.(More)
Pupae from the Chinese wild mulberry silkworm,Bombyx mandarina, and 11 representative strains of the domesticated silkworm,Bombyx mori were selected for preparation of mitochondrial DNA. The 5′-end fragments ofcytochrome b genes (Cytb) were generated by polymerase chain reaction products and sequenced directly. The homologous sequences of the JapaneseB.(More)
A fungal elicitor prepared from the cell debris of the plant-pathogenic ascomycete Alternaria alternata induces multiple responses by Inonotus obliquus cells, including an increase in generation of nitric oxide (NO), activity of phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) and accumulation of total mycelial phenolic compounds (TMP), but does not trigger production of(More)
Inonotus obliquus (Fr.) Pilat is a white rot fungus belonging to the family Hymenochaetaceae in the Basidiomycota. In nature, this fungus rarely forms a fruiting body but usually an irregular shape of sclerotial conk called ‘Chaga’. Characteristically, I. obliquus produces massive melanins released to the surface of Chaga. As early as in the sixteenth(More)
INTRODUCTION The sclerotia of Inonotus obliquus (Chaga) are effective therapeutic agents to treat several human malignant tumours and other diseases without unacceptable toxic side-effects. OBJECTIVE To investigate solvent effects on metabolic profiles and antioxidant activities of extracts of Chaga. METHODOLOGY Chaga was extracted by petroleum ether,(More)
Male reproduction is an essential biological event in the plant life cycle separating the diploid sporophyte and haploid gametophyte generations, which involves expression of approximately 20,000 genes. The control of male reproduction is also of economic importance for plant breeding and hybrid seed production. With the advent of forward and reverse(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) has been evidenced to mediate biosynthesis of polyphenols in Inonotus obliquus. However, it remains unknown how NO regulates their biosynthesis. Here we show that higher cellular NO levels coincided with higher accumulation of S-nitrosothiols (SNO; the products of NO combined with a specific residue in glutathione or proteins) and(More)
The brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (N. lugens, Hemiptera: Delphacidae), and the green rice leafhopper, Nephotettix cincticeps (N. cincticeps, Hemiptera: Cicadellidae), two sap-sucking feeders, have caused many destructive agricultural disasters in East Asia, as they can bring diseases like 'hopper burn' and transmit plant viruses. Recently,(More)
