Mixed infection by three dsRNA viruses, a novel betapartitivirus, a gammapartitivirus, and a novel fusarivirus, has been identified in four isolates of the obligate alkalophilic fungus Sodiomyces alkalinus. The first, Sodiomyces alkalinus partitivirus 1 (SaPV1), is placed within the genus Betapartitivirus and is related to Ustilaginoidea virens partitivirus 2. The taxonomic position of the second virus is less clear as it shares high (85%) amino acid sequence identity but significantly low (77… Expand
The Signatures of Natural Selection and Molecular Evolution in Fusarium graminearum Virus 1
TLDR
Positive selection on beneficial mutations in FgV1 was inferred based on the ratio of non-synonymous to synonymous substitutions (dN/dS), on the ratios of radical to conservation amino acid replacements (pNR/pNC), and by changes in the predicted protein structures, and evidence of positive selection only in the open reading frame 4 protein was found.

Viruses of endophytic and pathogenic forest fungi
TLDR
The current review presents various mycoviruses which infect fungal endophytes and forest pathogens, their presumed origins and interactions with fungi, plants and the environment, high-throughput sequencing techniques that can be used to explore the horizontal gene transfer of myc Coviruses, and how the hypo- and hypervirulence induced by myCoviral infection is relevant to the biological control of pathogenic fungi.

Discovery of new mycoviral genomes within publicly available fungal transcriptomic datasets
TLDR
A systematic survey of all transcriptomic datasets from fungi belonging to the subphylum Pezizomycotina finds up to four new families and two new genera, and demonstrates the suitability of analyzing RNA-seq data to facilitate rapid discovery of new viruses. Expand
Evolutionary forces at work in partitiviruses
TLDR
It is proposed that putative positive selection occurs also on the RdRp genes in two viruses and there are indications that reassortants are present among isolates of different viruses. Expand
Hiding in plain sight: New virus genomes discovered via a systematic analysis of fungal public transcriptomes
TLDR
A systematic survey of all transcriptomic datasets from fungi belonging to the subphylum Pezizomycotina finds up to four new families and two new genera, and demonstrates the suitability of analyzing RNA-seq data to facilitate rapid discovery of new viruses. Expand
The ORF2 protein of Fusarium graminearum virus 1 suppresses the transcription of FgDICER2 and FgAGO1 to limit host antiviral defences
TLDR
It is found that FgV1 can suppress RNA silencing by interfering with the induction of FgDICER2 and FgAGO1, which are involved in RNAi antiviral defence and the hairpin RNA/RNAi pathway in F. graminearum. Expand

Fungal DNA virus infects a mycophagous insect and utilizes it as a transmission vector
TLDR
This work discovered that a gemycircularvirus, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirulence-associated DNA virus 1 (SsHADV-1), could infect a mycophagous insect, Lycoriella ingenua, and use it as a transmission vector and may facilitate the exploration of mycoviruses to control fungal diseases. Expand
Molecular characterization of a novel hypovirus from the plant pathogenic fungus Fusarium graminearum.
TLDR
FgHV2/JS16 was shown to be associated with hypovirulence phenotypes according to comparisons of the biological properties shared between FgH V2/ JS16-infected and F gHV 2/JS 16-free isogenic strains, and it was demonstrated that FhV2-JS16 infection activated the RNA interference pathway in Fusarium graminearum by relative quantitative real time RT-PCR.

TLDR
QPCR analysis suggested that coinfection with L. edodes mycovirus HKB (LeV-HKB) could increase replication of the RdRp gene of LePV1, with the virus being more common in wild strains than cultivated strains. Expand

TLDR
The characterization of a novel betapartitiv virus termed Rosellinia necatrix partitivirus 6 (RnPV6) from a field isolate of a plant pathogenic fungus, white root rot fungus is reported, which induced profound phenotypic alterations with symptoms characterized by a reduced growth rate and enhanced pigmentation and was tolerant to host RNA silencing.
