Twenty-five Stachybotrys isolates from two previous studies have been examined and compared, using morphological, chemical and phylogenetic methods. The results show that S. chartarum sensu lato can be segregated into two chemotypes and one new species. The new species, S. chlorohalonata, differs morphologically from S. chartarum by having smooth conidia, being more restricted in growth and producing a green extracellular pigment on the medium CYA. S. chlorohalonata and S. chartarum also have… Expand
Taxonomic history and current status of Stachybotrys chartarum and related species.
UNLABELLED The fungus Stachybotrys chartarum is the type species of the genus Stachybotrys. It is a cellulolytic saprophyte with a worldwide distribution and is frequently recovered in water-damagedExpand
Truncated satratoxin gene clusters in selected isolates of the atranone chemotype of Stachybotrys chartarum (Ehrenb.) S. Hughes
TLDR
Correlation of the new genotype-based concept with mycotoxin production data shows also that macrocyclic trichothecenes are exclusively produced by S. chartarum. Expand
Comparative genome sequencing reveals chemotype-specific gene clusters in the toxigenic black mold Stachybotrys
TLDR
A unified biochemical model for Stachybotrys toxin production is presented and suggests that chemotype-specific gene clusters are likely the genetic basis for the mutually-exclusive toxin chemotypes of Stachy botrys. Expand
Rapid and selective detection of macrocyclic trichothecene producing Stachybotrys chartarum strains by loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP)
TLDR
To selectively identify macrocyclic trichothecene producing S. chartarum isolates, a set of sat14 gene-specific primers was designed and applied in a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay using neutral red for visual signal detection and showed high specificity and sensitivity. Expand
Stachybotrys eucylindrospora, sp. nov. resulting from a re-examination of Stachybotrys cylindrospora.

  • 2007
TLDR
Stachybotrys cylindrospora is a synonym of S. chartarum because a number of isolates and specimens subsequently described and studied by several mycologists have typical cylindrical conidia with longitudinal striations. Expand
Toxin Production by Stachybotrys chartarum Genotype S on Different Culture Media
TLDR
These data demonstrate that the mycotoxin production clearly depends on the composition of the respective medium, and provide a starting point for further studies in order to identify individual components that either support or repress the production of mycotoxins in S. chartarum. Expand
Stachybotrychromenes A–C: novel cytotoxic meroterpenoids from Stachybotrys sp.
TLDR
Three novel meroterpenoids containing a chromene ring moiety, namely stachybotrychromenes A–C, were isolated from solid culture of the filamentous fungus Stachybotrys chartarum DSMZ 12880 (chemotype S) and elucidated by means of comprehensive spectroscopic analysis. Expand
A multi-gene phylogeny for Stachybotrys evidences lack of trichodiene synthase (tri5) gene for isolates of one of three intrageneric lineages.
TLDR
A combined multi-gene approach was used to investigate relationships among species of Stachybotrys against which the presence/absence of the trichothecene biosynthetic pathway gene, trichodiene synthase (tri5), was evaluated and showed that tri5 was highly conserved at the amino acid level suggesting that identity at variable sites, among otherwise divergent taxa, might be the result of chance events. Expand
Differentiation of S. chartarum (Ehrenb.) S. Hughes Chemotypes A and S via FT-IR Spectroscopy
TLDR
A distinction of the chemotypes A and S is achieved via FT-IR spectroscopy after incubation for 7 days on MEA, and the PCR detecting satratoxin- and atranone-gene clusters remained the only applicable method in terms of genotype differentiation. Expand
Hyphomycetous fungal community of barley phylloplane in East Azarbaijan Province with emphasis on new taxa for Iranian fungal flora.
TLDR
The majority of fungal species obtained in this survey belonged to various species of hyphomycetous genera such as Alternaria, Aspergillus, Drechslera, Fusarium and Penicillium. Expand

Toxigenic diversity of two different RAPD groups of Stachybotrys chartarum isolates analyzed by potential for trichothecene production and for boar sperm cell motility inhibition.
TLDR
Unweighted pair group method of arithmetic averages (UPGMA) cluster analysis of RAPD fragments clustered the 31 S. chartarum isolates in two distinct groups designated as RAPD groups 1 and 2, indicating that the S.Chartarum isolate belonging to different groups were genetically distinct in a much wider area than just the Tri5 gene. Expand
Characterization of Stachybotrys from water-damaged buildings based on morphology, growth, and metabolite production.
TLDR
This study characterized and identified 122 Stachybotrys isolates, mainly from water-damaged buildings, by combining three different approaches: morphology, colony characteristics, and metabolite production, and shows that the three taxa/chemotypes should be treated separately. Expand
Biochemical Characterization of Ochratoxin A-Producing Strains of the Genus Penicillium
TLDR
It is found that P. nordicum isolates incorporated phenylalanine into verrucine and lumpidin metabolites, a finding which could explain why those isolates produced relatively lower levels of ochratoxins than did most isolates of P. verrucosum. Expand
STUDIES ON SPECIES OF OIDIODENDRON, HELICODENDRON, AND STACHYBOTRYS FROM SOIL
TLDR
An isolate of Helicodendron tubulosum from soil was found to differ from previously described isolates in the production of a second phialospore-type conidial stage and in the ability of mature helicoid spores to fragment at maturity into a number of smaller functional units. Expand
The phylogenetics of mycotoxin and sclerotium production in Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus oryzae.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of all three genes confirmed the inference that group I and group II represent a deep divergence within A. flavus, and identified each isolate as "S" or "L" based on sclerotium size. Expand
Study of Toxin Production by Isolates of Stachybotrys chartarum and Memnoniella echinata Isolated during a Study of Pulmonary Hemosiderosis in Infants
TLDR
Because of an interest in the possibility that trichothecene mycotoxins might be involved in this illness, a number of isolates of Stachybotrys chartarum were grown in the laboratory on rice and extracts were analyzed both for cytotoxicity and for specific toxins. Expand
Cryptic species in Stachybotrys chartarum
TLDR
It is inferred that two distinct phylogenetic species exist within the single described morphological species of Stachybotrys chartarum, and no correlation between genetic isolation and geographic distance is found. Expand

TLDR
Stachybotrys chartarum is an indoor air, toxigenic fungus that has been associated with a number of human and veterinary health problems and each of these strains was isolated from a house in Cleveland where an infant had idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage. Expand
