Abstract. Expensive food is always a possible target for fraudulent labelling. King bolete (Boletus edulis) belongs to the most popular and expensive mushrooms in Europe. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis on the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) is a suitable method of identifying mushroom species. The ITS region of several Boletus edulis and several closely related mushroom species (e.g. Suillus luteus) was sequenced. Using these results specific PCR methods could be established… 

Preliminary molecular identification of Boletus griseipurpureus Corner from Thailand and its nutritional value

The basidiomes of B. griseipurpureus were rich in protein and very low in fat confirming their value for human consumption and constituted a monophyletic clade.

Differentiation of animal species in food by oligonucleotide microarray hybridization

The DNA chip hybridization analysis of cytochrome b PCR products offers a new way for rapid and sensitive species differentiation in food.

Morphological and molecular characterisation of mycelia of ectomycorrhizal fungi in pure culture

The morphological characteristics of the mycelia of the three Boletus species were similar, but these species were distinguished by ITS data, and problems remain, however, in the affiliation of these ITS sequences with those of the B. edulis group that are currently deposited in public databases.

PCR-based sensitive detection of the edible fungus Boletus edulis from rDNA ITS sequences

This research presents a novel probabilistic approach that allows us to assess the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus as a source of infection for other animals.

Edible ectomycorrhizal mushrooms : challenges and achievements 1

There are about 2500 recorded species of edible mushrooms. The most expensive and sought after of these mushrooms belong to the mycorrhizal group and include Tuber melanosporum Vitt. (Périgord black

Edible ectomycorrhizal mushrooms: challenges and achievements

Only a few species of truffles have been produced in commercial quantities, although methods have been developed that may see the cultivation of species such as Cantharellus cibarius, Lyophyllum shimeji Hongo, and Lactarius deliciosus.

Characterization and identification of field ectomycorrhizae of Boletus edulis and Cistus ladanifer

The identification of the fungal symbiont as B. edulis was confirmed by ITS rDNA sequence comparison between mycorrhizas and sporocarps, and the singularity of this symbiotic association is discussed.

A detailed and comprehensive list of the edible porcini mushrooms occurring in the world is provided. Each species is accompanied by a list of synonyms, pertinent geographic range, data on ecology

A major new project involves developing the small sea anemone Aiptasia pallida as a model system for study of the molecular and cellular biology of the dinoflagellate-cnidarian symbiosis, which is critical for the survival of most reef-building corals but still very poorly understood.
