Variation within the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the ribosomal RNA gene of 15 isolates representing seven European Armillaria species, was examined by sequencing of the PCR-amplified products. The analysis of an 744-bp region showed that the 5.8S gene appeared to be highly conserved in the 15 isolates and in other Basidiomycetes and Ascomycetes, whereas ITS1 and especially ITS2 spacers exhibited polymorphisms due to base substitutions, insertions or deletions of up to eight nucleotides… Expand
Characterization of North American Armillaria species: genetic relationships determined by ribosomal DNA sequences and AFLP markers
TLDR
The results indicate that AFLP genetic markers offer potential for distinguishing currently recognized North American Biological Species (NABS) of Armillaria in future biological, ecological and taxonomic studies. Expand
Identification of Portuguese Armillaria Isolates by Classic Mating-Tests and RFLP-PCR Analysis of the ITS1 Region of Ribosomal DNA
TLDR
The ITS1 region showed to be a reliable molecular marker for A. mellea identification by ITS1 analysis, in particular when HinfI restriction analysis is applied, since two fragments with 245 bp and 125 bp have been obtained for this most aggressive species. Expand
Phylogeographic patterns of Armillaria ostoyae in the western United States
TLDR
Findings will provide a basis for future research relating ecological function to genetic diversity within A. ostoyae and indicate that paleogeography and paleoclimate may have influenced the phylogeographies of A. Ostoyae. Expand
Sequence-based identification of Japanese Armillaria species using the elongation factor-1 alpha gene
TLDR
Among the techniques examined in this study, analyzing the EF-1 alpha sequence was found to be the most suitable method for identifying different species of Japanese Armillaria. Expand
Cryptic species in the Terfezia boudieri complex
TLDR
Two of the physiological traits examined: mycelial proliferation and mycorrhiza formation, consistently showed responses paralleling the ITS Types; the data presented suggest that T. boudieri is comprised of three cryptic species. Expand
Variations in rDNA ITS of Czech Armillaria species determined by PCR and HPLC.
TLDR
Restriction fragments were analysed by ion-exchange high performance liquid chromatography which proved to be more useful informative, and less time-consuming than classical electrophoresis on agarose gel, and the HPLC method enabled detection of some heterozygous strains. Expand
Identification and differentiation of mycorrhizal isolates of black alder by sequence analysis of the ITS region
TLDR
It is revealed that isolates within the three closely related ITS groups displayed high homology to ITS sequences of Tomentella sublilacina and Thelephora terrestris, whereas BEh-Uw1 had the highest sequence similarity to an ITS DNA sequence of a basidiomycete DNA isolated from bamboo leaves.

MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION OF SOUTHEASTERN ARMILLARIA ISOLATES by KAROL LEIGH KELLY
The genus Armillaria contains white-rot basidiomycetes pathogenic to woody plant hosts worldwide. Of particular interest are the species found in southeastern peach (Prunus persica) orchards causingExpand
An evaluation of the fungal 'morphotype' concept based on ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
This study verifies on the basis of ribosomal DNA sequence analysis the validity of these ‘morphotypes’ as taxonomic groups as well as relatedness of the morphotypes and reference taxa from GenBank. Expand
Sequence variation in the rDNA ITS of Australian Armillaria species and intra-specific variation in A. luteobubalina
TLDR
In contrast to northern hemisphere species, Australia’s Armillaria species have high variation in the rDNA Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region, and isolates of five different Australian species, including A. luteobubalina, had distinct ITS sequences and PCR-RFLP profiles. Expand

TLDR
The sequences coding for the 18 s and 5·8 s ribosomal RNAs and their internal transcribed spacers (ITS1 and ITS2) from isolates of five Leptosphaeria species were amplified by PCR and sequenced and indicated that, with the exception of L. bicolor, Leptaemia species are closely related. Expand
