The results provide metatranscriptomic evidence in support of the notion that members of the genera Ruminococcus, Fibrobacter, and Prevotella are predominant PCWP degraders and point to the significant contribution of GH48 cellobiohydrolases and cellulosome-like structures to efficient PCWP degradation in the cow rumen.
Phylogeny of anaerobic fungi (phylum Neocallimastigomycota), with contributions from yak in China
A comparative phylogenetic revision of Neocallimastigomycota isolates known from culture and sequence data shows that ITS, specifically ITS1 alone, is not a good marker to resolve the generic affinities of the studied fungi.
Overexpression of the Global Regulator LaeA in Chaetomium globosum Leads to the Biosynthesis of Chaetoglobosin Z.
Overexpression of laeA in Chaetomium globosum CBS148.51 up-regulated expression of the chaetoglobosin gene cluster and resulted in the isolation of a new cytochalasan, chaetoglobosin Z (1), together
Chaetochromones A and B, Two New Polyketides from the Fungus Chaetomium indicum (CBS.860.68)
Chaetochromones A and B, two novel polyketides, were isolated from the crude extract of fungus Chaetomium indicum together with three known analogues PI-3(3), PI-4 (4) and SB236050 (5) and determined by HRESI-MS and NMR experiments.
Hydrazine-Containing Heterocycle Cytochalasan Derivatives From Hydrazinolysis of Extracts of a Desert Soil-Derived Fungus Chaetomium madrasense 375
Three rare new cytochalasan derivative chaetoglobosins B1-B3 were obtained from chemically engineered crude broth extracts of Chaetomium madrasense 375 and possessed potent activity against four human cancer cells and two drug-resistant HCC827 cells compared with the positive controls.
Genetic diversity and population structure of the amylolytic yeast Saccharomycopsis fibuligera associated with Baijiu fermentation in China.
The amylolytic yeast Saccharomycopsis fibuligera is a predominant species in starters and the early fermentation stage of Chinese liquor (Baijiu) and the genetic diversity of the species remains largely unknown, though strains exhibiting relatively high glucoamylase activity were mainly found from the homozygous lineage.
[Protein expression patterns identify morphological variability of ascomatal hairs in two species of genus Chaetomium].
The consistency of species delimitation between C. indicum and C. funicola based on morphological characters of ascomatal hairs and species-specific protein expression patterns demonstrates that ascomatic hairs can be still used as potential morphological parameters in taxonomy of Chaetomium.
