Biodiversity and systematics of basidiomycetous yeasts as determined by large-subunit rDNA D1/D2 domain sequence analysis.
The molecular systematics of 337 strains of basidiomycetous yeasts and yeast-like fungi, representing 230 species in 18 anamorphic and 24 teleomorphic genera, was determined by sequence analysis ofExpand

Methods for isolation, phenotypic characterization and maintenance of yeasts
Yeasts are recovered from a wide range of aquatic, marine, atmospheric, and terrestrial habitats. Many yeasts occur widely, whereas some appear to be confined to specific habitats. Yeasts seldomExpand

Consensus multi-locus sequence typing scheme for Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii.
This communication describes the consensus multi-locus typing scheme established by the Cryptococcal Working Group I (Genotyping of Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii) of the International SocietyExpand

Dectin-1 is an extracellular pathogen sensor for the induction and processing of IL-1β via a noncanonical caspase-8 inflammasome
Production of the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 1β (IL-1β) by dendritic cells is crucial in host defense. Here we identify a previously unknown role for dectin-1 in the activation of aExpand
