Dating Wood Rot Specific lineages within the basidiomycete fungi, white rot species, have evolved the ability to break up a major structural component of woody plants, lignin, relative to their non–lignin-decaying brown rot relatives. Through the deep phylogenetic sampling of fungal genomes, Floudas et al. (p. 1715; see the Perspective by Hittinger) mapped the detailed evolution of wood-degrading enzymes. A key peroxidase and other enzymes involved in lignin decay were present in the common… Expand
Extensive sampling of basidiomycete genomes demonstrates inadequacy of the white-rot/brown-rot paradigm for wood decay fungi
TLDR
The results indicate that the prevailing paradigm of white rot vs. brown rot does not capture the diversity of fungal wood decay mechanisms, and suggest a continuum rather than a dichotomy between the white-rot and brown-rot modes of wood decay. Expand
Peroxidase evolution in white-rot fungi follows wood lignin evolution in plants
TLDR
By enzyme resurrection, it is shown that during fungal evolution, these enzymes improved their activity and switched their degradative preferences with the rise of a surface tryptophan conferring on them the ability to oxidize nonphenolic lignin. Expand
Experimental recreation of the evolution of lignin-degrading enzymes from the Jurassic to date
TLDR
An evolutionary exploration for more efficient ways of lignin degradation by fungi, a key step for carbon recycling in land ecosystems is shown and ancestral enzymes are provided with a potential biotechnological interest for the sustainable production of fuels and chemicals in a biomass-based economy. Expand
Recent Advances on the Genomics of Litter- and Soil-Inhabiting Agaricomycetes
TLDR
Current understanding of Agaricomycete physiology as it relates to lignocellulose conversions is reviewed, showing an important role for high oxidation potential peroxidases working in conjunction with peroxide-generating oxidases. Expand
Comparative Genomics of Early-Diverging Mushroom-Forming Fungi Provides Insights into the Origins of Lignocellulose Decay Capabilities.
TLDR
The results suggest that white-rot fungi evolved later in the Agaricomycetes, with the first class II peroxidases reconstructed in the ancestor of the Auriculariales and residual Agarics, and the origin of ligninolytic enzymes reconstructed. Expand
Evolutionary convergence in lignin-degrading enzymes
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms that led to the rise of a powerful strategy for lignin degradation as a phenotypic trait in fungi are analyzed and convergent evolution at the amino acid level during the evolution of these fungi is demonstrated. Expand
Localizing gene regulation reveals a staggered wood decay mechanism for the brown rot fungus Postia placenta
TLDR
This study focuses on brown rot fungi that selectively remove carbohydrates, leaving most lignin behind, and provides evidence of an oxidative-hydrolytic two-step mechanism controlled by differential expression, not microenvironments. Expand
Uncovering the hidden diversity of litter-decomposition mechanisms in mushroom-forming fungi
TLDR
The results suggest that the terms white-rot fungi and litter decomposers mask a much larger functional diversity within the Agaricomycotina group, suggesting adaptation of the former group to the litter environment. Expand
Gene Regulation Shifts Shed Light on Fungal Adaption in Plant Biomass Decomposers
TLDR
Results support the hypothesis that gene regulation shifts played a pivotal role in brown rot adaptation, and reveal an important biological shift among these unique fungi, but they may also illuminate a trait that restricts brown rot fungi to certain ecological niches. Expand
Evolutionary dynamics of host specialization in wood-decay fungi
TLDR
The results challenge the current view that brown rot fungi are primarily gymnosperm specialists and reveal intensive white rot specialization to angiosperm hosts and suggests that the rise of the angiosperms opened a new mega-niche for wood-decay fungi, which was exploited particularly well by white rot lineages.

Lignin‐modifying enzymes in filamentous basidiomycetes – ecological, functional and phylogenetic review
TLDR
This review gives a current ecological, genomic, and protein functional and phylogenetic perspective of the wood and lignocellulose‐decaying basidiomycetous fungi. Expand

TLDR
Fungal nutritional mode diversification suggests that the boreal forest biome originated via genetic coevolution of above- and below-ground biota through convergent evolution and divergence among fungal decomposers. Expand
Genome sequence of the lignocellulose degrading fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium strain RP78
TLDR
The sequenced genome of Phanerochaete chrysosporium strain RP78 reveals an impressive array of genes encoding secreted oxidases, peroxidases and hydrolytic enzymes that cooperate in wood decay, and provides a framework for further development of bioprocesses for biomass utilization, organopollutant degradation and fiber bleaching.

Genome, transcriptome, and secretome analysis of wood decay fungus Postia placenta supports unique mechanisms of lignocellulose conversion
TLDR
Comparisons with the closely relatedwhite-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium support an evolutionary shift from white-rot to brown-rot during which the capacity for efficient depolymerization of lignin was lost. Expand
Transcriptomic Responses of the Softwood-Degrading White-Rot Fungus Phanerochaete carnosa during Growth on Coniferous and Deciduous Wood
TLDR
Gene set enrichment analyses did not distinguish transcriptomes resulting from softwood and hardwood cultivations, suggesting that similar sets of enzyme activities are elicited by P. carnosa grown on different wood substrates, albeit to different expression levels. Expand
Wood Decay in Silicified Gymnosperms from Antarctica
TLDR
Gymnospermous secondary xylem degraded by wood-decaying fungi was examined in silicified fossils from Antarctica, and indications of host response to fungal attack include the production of possible wall appositions. Expand

TLDR
The two species display distinct expression patterns for oxidoreductase-encoding genes that are consistent with an extracellular Fenton system and include the upregulation of genes involved in iron acquisition, in the synthesis of low-molecular-weight quinones, and possibly in redox cycling reactions.

TLDR
It is indicated that there may have been at least four independent losses of the flagellum in the kingdom Fungi, and the enigmatic microsporidia seem to be derived from an endoparasitic chytrid ancestor similar to Rozella allomycis, on the earliest diverging branch of the fungal phylogenetic tree.
