It was found that plant storage tissues (fleshy sugar-containing fruits, subsurface metamorphically altered plant organs (storage roots, tubers, etc.), and starch-containing seed lobes) nearly always contain yeasts that are able to actively reproduce in these tissues causing no visible damage. Within storage tissues, yeast cells were detected both in the intercellular space and inside plant cells. In the tissues of fleshy fruits, endophytic yeasts are represented by the same species as… 

Endophytic Yeasts: Biology and Applications

A survey of the limited current literature on endophytic yeast isolations from a variety of plant species and a summary of papers that explored applications of these yeast isolates.

Endophytic yeasts in leaf galls

Results indicate that gall formation may be considered not only as a bidirectional pathological process of the interaction between plants and invertebrates, but also as a process in which the endophytic microbial population of the galls plays an important role.

Biodiversity, Ecology, and Secondary Metabolites Production of Endophytic Fungi Associated with Amaryllidaceae Crops

This review highlights the taxonomy, ecology, and bioactive chemicals synthesized by endophytic fungi isolated from plants of the Amaryllidaceae family with a focus on the detection of pharmaceutically valuable plant and fungi constituents.

Soil yeasts and their role in seed germination

Soil yeasts were found to accelerate the development of seeds of common crops and their role in the germination of vascular plant seeds can be considered one of the new directions of soil microbiology related to studying the participation of soil microorganisms in the formation of endophytic communities.

Extracellular enzymatic activities and physiological profiles of yeasts colonizing fruit trees

The aim of the present study was to investigate the ability of yeasts isolated from leaves, fruits, and blossoms of fruit trees cultivated in Southwest Slovakia to produce extracellular enzymes, and to discover whether the yeasts originating from these plant organs differ from each other in their physiological properties.

Yeasts associated with wind-pollinated plants—leading pollen allergens in Central Russia

The subjects of study were chosen due to the fact that they are considered the main pollen allergens in Central Russia, and the taxonomic structure and abundance of yeast communities associated with pollen of winddpollinated plants was studied.

Novel Symbiotic Protoplasts Formed by Endophytic Fungi Explain Their Hidden Existence, Lifestyle Switching, and Diversity within the Plant Kingdom

It is found that mycosomes cultured from plants and phylogenetically diverse endophytic fungi have common morphological characteristics, express similar developmental patterns, and can revert back to the free-living walled state.

Tobacco Plant Growth-Promoting and Antifungal Activities of Three Endophytic Yeast Strains

In this research, the biosynthetic and biocontrol potential of endophytic yeast to improve the growth and development of tobacco has been elucidated. Three yeast strains were enriched and isolated

Yeasts and yeast-like organisms associated with fruits and blossoms of different fruit trees.

Yeasts and yeast-like organisms associated with matured fruits and fully open blossoms of apple, plum, and pear trees, during 2 consecutive years at 3 localities in southwest Slovakia were focused on.



Fungal Epiphytes and Endophytes of Coffee Leaves (Coffea arabica)

This first quantitative comparison of epiphytic and endophytic fungal floras in any plant is compared, and significant correlations between occurrence of fungal morphospecies suggested that fungi may have positive or negative effects on their neighbors.

Two Endophytic Fungi in Different Tissues of Scots Pine Buds (Pinus sylvestris L.)

Two fungal species were isolated with different frequencies from pine tissue cultures originating from buds, found to be localized in the scale tissues of the buds and in the meristematic tissues of buds, respectively.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a potential pathogen towards grapevine, Vitis vinifera

It is reported that the differences in behavior between the strains of S. cerevisiae are based on the filamentous forms, but that their pectolytic activities are required to invade grapevine tissues.

Massive isolation of anamorphous ascomycete yeasts Candida oleophila from plant phyllosphere

Wide occurrence of this yeast species on fruits and in the phyllosphere may be related to its ability to compete with rapidly growing phytopathogenic fungi.

The endophytic continuum.

It is hypothesized that the endophytes, in contrast to known pathogens, generally have far greater phenotypic plasticity and thus more options than pathogens: infection, local but also extensive colonisation, latency, virulence, pathogenity and (or) saprophytism.

The seasonal dynamics of yeast communities in the rhizosphere of soddy-podzolic soils

The annual dynamics of the number and taxonomic composition of yeast was studied in the rhizosphere of two plant species in a forb-birch forest on soddy-podzolic soil and the above-and underground parts of the plants significantly differed in the composition of the dominant species of epiphytic yeasts.

Promotion of plant growth by an auxin-producing isolate of the yeast Williopsis saturnus endophytic in maize (Zea mays L.) roots

A plant-growth-promoting isolate of the yeast Williopsis saturnus endophytic in maize roots was found to be capable of producing indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and indole -3-pyruvic acid (IPYA) in vitro in a chemically defined medium, and the first report of the production of auxins by yeasts endophysis in plant roots.

Endophytic fungi from Musa acuminata leaves and roots in South China

Water agar seemed to be a better medium for isolation of endophytic fungi than potato-dextrose agar (PDA, containing 50 μg chloramphenicol ml−1 and 50 μg streptomycin ml+1).

Bioprotective Alkaloids of Grass-Fungal Endophyte Symbioses

The objective of this Update is to present the current status of knowledge on these alkaloids, focusing on their biological activities and the potential for genetically manipulating their expression in grasslendophyte symbiota.
