ABSTRACT Flocculosin and ustilagic acid (UA), two highly similar antifungal cellobiose lipids, are respectively produced by Pseudozyma flocculosa, a biocontrol agent, and Ustilago maydis, a plant pathogen. Both glycolipids contain a short-chain fatty acid hydroxylated at the β position but differ in the long fatty acid, which is hydroxylated at the α position in UA and at the β position in flocculosin. In both organisms, the biosynthesis genes are arranged in large clusters. The functions of… 
Factors Affecting the Synthesis of Cellobiose Lipids by Sporisorium scitamineum
TLDR
The first systematic cultivation of S. scitamineum targeting the synthesis of CL with high product titers and its transfer to the bioreactor is reported, with a final purity of 85–93%.
The Transition from a Phytopathogenic Smut Ancestor to an Anamorphic Biocontrol Agent Deciphered by Comparative Whole-Genome Analysis[W][OPEN]
TLDR
Interestingly, the biocontrol agent appears to have acquired genes encoding secreted proteins not found in the compared Ustilaginales, including necrosis-inducing-Phytophthora-protein- and Lysin-motif- containing proteins believed to have direct relevance to its lifestyle.
Mode of action of biocontrol agents: all that glitters is not gold
TLDR
There is new evidence to indicate that flocculosin plays a secondary, if any, role in the antagonistic activity of P.Flocculosa, and the biocontrol process instead appears to be mediated by an intricate interaction involving nutrients produced by the plant, harvested by the phytopathogen and exploited by P. flOCculosa.
Yeast glycolipid biosurfactants
TLDR
The biosynthetic and regulatory aspects of the yeast‐derived sophorolipids, mannosylerythritol lipids, and cellobiose lipids are discussed, with special emphasis on the relation between glycolipid synthesis and the general lipid metabolism.
Biosurfactant gene clusters in eukaryotes: regulation and biotechnological potential
TLDR
This review focuses on recent developments in the investigation of the biosynthesis, genetics and regulation of some important members of the family of the eukaryotic glycolipid BSs (MELs, CBLs and SLs), and recent biotechnological achievements and the industrial potential of engineered strains are discussed.
Perspectives for the application of Ustilaginaceae as biotech cell factories.
TLDR
The latest developments in applied research on Ustilaginaceae towards their establishment as future biotech cell factories are reviewed.

TLDR
Investigation of the CW changes in the glycolipids profile of oil palm roots during G. boninense infection confirmed 11 impaired glycolIPids associated to cell-signalling and break down of energy.
Biological control of the cucurbit powdery mildew pathogen Podosphaera xanthii by means of the epiphytic fungus Pseudozyma aphidis and parasitism as a mode of action
TLDR

Identification of a biosynthesis gene cluster for flocculosin a cellobiose lipid produced by the biocontrol agent Pseudozyma flocculosa
TLDR
By genetic and mass spectrometric analysis, it is shown that Uat2 and Fat2 are necessary for acetylation of the corresponding glycolipid.
A biosynthetic gene cluster for a secreted cellobiose lipid with antifungal activity from Ustilago maydis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that infection of tomato leaves by the plant pathogenic fungus Botrytis cinerea is prevented by co‐inoculation with wild‐type U. maydis sporidia, indicating that UA secretion is critical for antagonistic activity.
Genetic Analysis of Biosurfactant Production in Ustilago maydis
TLDR
The mutants described here allow for the first time a genetic analysis of glycolipid production in fungi and it is shown that mannosylerythritol lipid production is responsible for hemolytic activity on blood agar, whereas ustilagic acid secretion is required for long-range pheromone recognition.
Nutritional regulation and kinetics of flocculosin synthesis by Pseudozyma flocculosa
TLDR
Concentration of the start-up inoculum was found to play an important role in flocculosin production, as the optimal level increased productivity by as much as tenfold.
Cinnamoyl CoA reductase, the first committed enzyme of the lignin branch biosynthetic pathway: cloning, expression and phylogenetic relationships.
TLDR
Sequence analysis revealed remarkable homologies with dihydroflavonol-4-reductase (DFR), the first enzyme of the anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway, suggesting that CCR shared a common ancestor with these enzymes and can therefore be considered as a new member of the mammalian 3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase/ plant diHydroflvonol reductase superfamily.
BIOCHEMISTRY OF THE USTILAGINALES: VII. ANTIBIOTIC ACTIVITY OF USTILAGIC ACID
TLDR
The antibiotic activity of Ustilago zeae cultures is associated mainly with the culture solids and it has been shown that a mixture of glucolipids, called ustilagic acid, is responsible for part, if not all, of the observed activity.
Cloning and molecular analysis of structural genes involved in flavonoid and stilbene biosynthesis in grape (Vitis vinifera L.)
TLDR
The analysis of the genomic organization and expression of these genes in response to light shows that PAL and StSy genes belong to large multigene families, while the others are present in one to four copies per haploid genome.
Short‐chain dehydrogenase/reductase (SDR) relationships: A large family with eight clusters common to human, animal, and plant genomes
TLDR
The availability of the human genome enabled the large family of short‐chain dehydrogenase/reductase (SDR) members to be delineated, and 63 members are found, reflecting enzyme forms specific to mammals.
