Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation (ATMT) is becoming a popular effective system as an insertional mutagenesis tool in filamentous fungi. To gain more insight into the cellular and molecular mechanisms in the pathogenesis of Ustilaginoidea virens, the causal agent of rice false smut disease, a T-DNA insertion mutant library of U. virens was(More)
Ustilaginoidea virens is the causal agent of rice false smut, which is a rice disease of increasing importance worldwide that has caused with the quantitative and qualitative rice losses. However, research on the pathogenic mechanism of U. virens is limited. In this study, we reported a de novo assembling, annotation, and characterization of the(More)
Bacillus subtilis strains produce a broad spectrum of bioactive peptides. The lipopeptide surfactin belongs to one wellknown class, which includes amphiphilic membrane-active biosurfactants and peptide antibiotics. Both the srfA promoter and the ComP-ComA signal transduction system are an important part of the factor that results in the production of(More)
Bacillus subtilis Bs-916 is an effective biocontrol agent in control rice sheath blight caused by Rhizoctonia solani. We identified and analyzed the operon Bac in Bs-916 responsible for synthesis of iturin-like lipopeptides. The research plays an important part in genetic engineered Bs-916 for further improving its bio-control activity. Taking advantage of(More)
UNLABELLED Bacillus subtilis Bs-916 has obvious effects against Rhizoctonia solani. We demonstrated that the mutant strain, M49 obtained by means of low energy ion implantation in strain Bs-916, which produces significantly lower levels of surfactin, had no obvious effects against R. solani. OBJECTIVE In order to identify the influencing factors of(More)
