Figures and Tables from this paper

New Polyketides from the Antarctic Fungus Pseudogymnoascus sp. HSX2#-11
Systematic research of the metabolites of the fungus Pseudogymnoascus led to the isolation of one novel polyketide, pseudophenone A (1), along with six known analogs, and this is the first time to use molecular networking to study the metabolic profiles of Antarctica fungi.
Bioactive Compounds Produced by Antarctic Filamentous Fungi
This chapter summary of the studies about biological activities of extracts obtained from filamentous fungi isolated in different Antarctic environments, and an inventory of all the new chemical compounds obtained so far, highlight the importance of natural products from Antarctic filamentous fungus as source of novel bioactive compounds.
Sesquiterpenoids From the Antarctic Fungus Pseudogymnoascus sp. HSX2#-11
This is the first time to find terpenoids and steroids in the fungal genus Pseudogymnoascus, and six new tremulane sesquiterpenoids pseudotremulanes A–F are isolated.
Six Newly Recorded Fungal Taxa from Freshwater Niche in Korea
These are the first records of the rare Lectera, Mycoarthris, and Tetracladium genera in Korea, and the first reports of A. guillematii, C. novi-eboraci, L. nordwiniana, M. corallina, T. siamensis, and Te.
Cyclic heptapeptides with metal binding properties isolated from the fungus Cadophora malorum from Antarctic soil
The Antarctic fungus Cadophora malorum produces previously undescribed cyclic heptapeptides (cadophorin A and B ) containing an anthranilic acid residue. The planar structure of these peptides was
Evolutionary Histories of Type III Polyketide Synthases in Fungi
P phylogenetic and reconciliation analyses of 522 type III PKSs from 1,193 fungal genomes revealed complex evolutionary histories with massive gene duplications and losses, explaining their discontinuous distribution in the fungal tree of life.
Differential interaction of the dark septate endophyte Cadophora sp. and fungal pathogens in vitro and in planta
The data indicate that plants can change the interaction between fungi and, therefore, in vitro detected antagonism does not necessarily reflect the situation inside the plant.
Mycobiota associated to Casa Moneta Museum wood, South Orkney Islands, Antarctica
The identification of the fungi present in Casa Moneta’s wood and the characterization of their metabolism could be a guide to the development of preservation strategies for this historical building.
Nitrogenous Compounds from the Antarctic Fungus Pseudogymnoascus sp. HSX2#-11
This is the first report to discover pyridine, pyrimidine and diketopiperazines from the genus of Pseudogymnoascus.
Grapevine trunk diseases of cold-hardy varieties grown in Northern Midwest vineyards coincide with canker fungi and winter injury
Grapevine trunk diseases make up a disease complex associated with several vascular fungal pathogenic species. Surveys to characterize the composition of grapevine trunk diseases have been conducted


Cadophora species associated with wood-decay of grapevine in North America.
Fungal diversity and deterioration in mummified woods from the ad Astra Ice Cap region in the Canadian High Arctic
Analytical 13C-labeled tetramethylammonium hydroxide thermochemolysis showed the lignin from the ancient wood was in a high degree of preservation with minor side chain alteration and little to no demethylation or ring hydroxylation.
Wood-Destroying Soft Rot Fungi in the Historic Expedition Huts of Antarctica
The presence of Cadophora species, but only limited decay, suggests there is no immediate threat to the structural integrity of the huts, however, these fungi are widely found in wood from the historic huts and have the capacity to cause extensive soft rot if conditions that are more conducive to decay become common.
Type III polyketide synthase beta-ketoacyl-ACP starter unit and ethylmalonyl-CoA extender unit selectivity discovered by Streptomyces coelicolor genome mining.
It is shown that Gcs, a type III PKS encoded by the sco7221 ORF of the bacterium Streptomyces coelicolor, is required for biosynthesis of the germicidin family of 3,6-dialkyl-4-hydroxypyran-2-one natural products.
Disseminins and Spiciferone Analogues: Polyketide-Derived Metabolites from a Fungicolous Isolate of Pestalotiopsis disseminata.
Seven new polyketide metabolites were obtained from cultures of a fungicolous isolate of Pestalotiopsis disseminata, together with a related compound, previously known only as a semisynthetic product, which possesses uncommon bis-tetrahydrofuran and dioxabicyclo ring systems.
Hydroxylated sclerosporin derivatives from the marine-derived fungus Cadophora malorum.
The marine-derived fungus Cadophora malorum was isolated from the green alga Enteromorpha sp. Growth on a biomalt medium supplemented with sea salt yielded an extract, from which we have isolated
Novel Spiciferone Derivatives from the Fungus Drechslera hawaiiensis Isolated from the Marine Sponge Callyspongia aerizusa
From the marine sponge Callyspongia aerizusa collected from the Sea of Bali, Indonesia, fungal isolates of Drechslera hawaiiensis yielded four spiciferone derivatives which include spicifierone A and B, and two other novel derivatives includingSpiciferol A (3) which is an alcohol congener of spICiferone A (1).
Biosynthesis of spicifernin, a unique metabolite of the phytopathogenic fungus, Cochliobolus spicifer
The biosynthesis of spicifernin 1 has been studied by feeding 13C- and 2H-labelled precursors to Cochliobolus spicifer cultures; the labelling pattern demonstrated by 13C NMR spectroscopic analysis
Importance of the Ketone Function for the Phytotoxicity of Spiciferone A, a Phytotoxin Produced by the Fungus Cochliobolus spicifer
The results indicate that the ketone function at C-7 as well as the methyl atC-2 are essential to the phytotoxicity of spiciferone A.
Investigations of fungal diversity in wooden structures and soils at historic sites on the Antarctic Peninsula.
Fungi causing decay in the historic wooden structures and artifacts and those causing mold problems inside the structures are of great concern, and conservation efforts are urgently needed to help preserve these important polar heritage structures.
