Discovery of a “White-Gray-Opaque” Tristable Phenotypic Switching System in Candida albicans: Roles of Non-genetic Diversity in Host Adaptation
TLDR
A novel “white-gray-opaque” tristable phenotypic switching system in the human fungal pathogen Candida albicans is described, revealing additional complexity in this organism's ability to adapt to changing environments.
pH-dependent distribution of soil ammonia oxidizers across a large geographical scale as revealed by high-throughput pyrosequencing
TLDR
The results suggest that the distribution of ammonia oxidizers across large-scale biogeographical settings can be largely predicted along the soil pH gradient, thus providing important indications for the ecological characteristics of AOA and AOB in different soils.
Pathogenic wood‐decaying fungi in China
TLDR
Wood-decaying fungi in China were surveyed over the last 12 years, and among them 20 species were recorded for the first time on living trees in China, with most of these wood-destroying fungi are polypores in the Aphyllophorales.
Investigations on Heterobasidion annosum s.lat. in central and eastern Asia with the aid of mating tests and DNA fingerprinting
TLDR
To investigate the taxonomy of Heterobasidion in Eurasia, 49 specimens belonging to H. annosum sensu lato from Asia were identified with the aid of mating tests and showed a high degree of compatibility with H. parviporum and H. abietinum.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of Phylloporia (Hymenochaetales): new species and a worldwide key to the genus
TLDR
Five new species from China, Phylloporia crataegi, P. nandinae and P. oreophila, were revealed and these species are introduced with additional morphological evidence.
New records of Heterobasidion parviporum in China
TLDR
It seems to be a less aggressive pathogen in China than in Europe, although reliable data on the occurrence of Heterobasidion root rot in coniferous forests of China are so far lacking.
Regulation of filamentation in the human fungal pathogen Candida tropicalis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the cAMP signaling pathway plays a central role in the regulation of filamentation in C. tropicalis, a fungal species that is closely related to C. albicans and has conserved and divergent features among different Candida species.
Phylogeny and a new species of Sparassis (Polyporales, Basidiomycota): evidence from mitochondrial atp6, nuclear rDNA and rpb2 genes.
TLDR
The nuclear gene phylogeny strongly supported groups corresponding to morphological differences, geographic distribution and host shifts among species that produce clamp connections, such as S. crispa from Europe, S. radicata from western North America and S. latifolia from Asia.
