Abstract We previously isolated 31 cDNAs corresponding to pdi [inorganic phosphate (Pi) deficiency-inducible] genes through the differential screening of a cDNA library constructed from the mycelium of Pholiota nameko strain N2 cultured in Pi-depleted medium. Among the cDNAs, pdi251, pdi263 and pdi315 were analyzed here. The deduced amino acid sequences of pdi251, pdi263 and pdi315 showed high similarity to fungal hydrophobins and genes corresponding to these cDNAs encoding P. nameko… 
TasHyd1, a new hydrophobin gene from the biocontrol agent Trichoderma asperellum, is involved in plant root colonization.
TasHyd1 deletion mutants had no significant reduction in in vitro mycoparasitic activity but were altered in their wettability and were severely impaired in root attachment and colonization, indicating that the protein is a new hydrophobin that contributes to Trichoderma interaction with the plant.
Evolutionary analysis of hydrophobin gene family in two wood-degrading basidiomycetes, Phlebia brevispora and Heterobasidion annosum s.l.
The phylogenetic analysis confirmed the important role of gene duplication events in the evolution of hydrophobins in basidiomycetes and revealed significant differences in the expression levels of the 16 H. annosum s.l. hydrophobin-encoding genes which suggest possible differences in their regulatory patterns.
Comparative genomics and expression levels of hydrophobins from eight mycorrhizal genomes
Hydrophobin gene regulation in mycorrhizal tissue as compared with free-living mycelium, however, was significantly associated with a calculated high exposure of hydrophilic residues.
Comparative genomics and evolutionary analysis of hydrophobins from three species of wood-degrading fungi
An inventory and evolutionary analysis of hydrophobin genes from three wood-degrading basidiomycetes, Phlebia brevispora, Ganoderma sp.
Characterization of a Pleurotus ostreatus fruiting body‐specific hydrophobin gene, Po.hyd
The putative Po.HYD protein is assigned to the classI hydrophobins since its sequence arrangement and hydropathy pattern has a high consensus to other known class I hydrophobic proteins.
A hydrophobin gene, VDH1, is involved in microsclerotial development and spore viability in the plant pathogen Verticillium dahliae.
The wilt fungus Verticillium dahliae Kleb. produces desiccation- and cold-tolerant resting structures, known as microsclerotia, which are the primary source of disease inoculum in the field. In an
Quo vadis: signaling molecules and small secreted proteins from mycorrhizal fungi at the early stage of mycorrhiza formation
This work focuses on the functions of signaling molecules and secreted proteins released from mycorrhizal fungi at the early stage ofMycorrhiza formation, which helps host plants acquire more nutrients and water, thereby improving host plant resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses.
Characterization of the Trichoderma reesei hydrophobins HFBI and HFBII
Hydrophobins are surface active proteins produced by filamentous fungi. They fulfil a wide variety of functions in fungal growth and development. These proteins for example render fungal aerial
Heterogeneous expression and emulsifying activity of class I hydrophobin from Pholiota nameko
This work has attempted to express class I hydrophobin PNH1 from Pholiota nameko fused with glutathione S-transferase (GST) in Escherichia coli, and revealed that the purified GST–PNH1 had almost the same emulsifying activity as P NH1.
Phosphorous availability influences the dissolution of apatite by soil fungi
Apatite (Ca 10 (PO 4 ) 6 (OH,F,Cl) 2 ) is the primary inorganic source of phosphorus in the biosphere. Soil fungi are known to increase plant-available phosphorus by promoting dissolution of various


Gene Expression during Pi Deficiency in Pholiota nameko: Accumulation of mRNAs for Two Transporters
The effects of Pi deficiency on gene expression in Pholiota nameko showed that these pdi genes were expressed in various patterns during Pi deficiency, and deduced amino acid sequences indicated that they have structural similarities to Pi and metabolite transporters.
Isolation and characterization of a cDNA from Catharanthus roseus which is highly homologous with phosphate transporter
The PIT1 gene was expressed in roots, stems, and young whole plant of C. roseus, but not in leaves, and Expression of the PIT1 cDNA enabled DpU to grow on LP medium.
LEPS2, a phosphorus starvation-induced novel acid phosphatase from tomato.
The isolation and characterization of a novel tomato phosphate starvation-induced gene (LePS2) representing an acid phosphatase represents a specific response to Pi starvation, and it is not affected by starvation of other nutrients or abiotic stresses.
Identification and characterization of MPG1, a gene involved in pathogenicity from the rice blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea.
The results suggest that hydrophobins may have a role in the elaboration of infective structures by fungi and may fulfill other functions in fungal phytopathogenesis.
Psr1, a nuclear localized protein that regulates phosphorus metabolism in Chlamydomonas.
A gene encoding a regulator of phosphorus metabolism, designated Psr1 (phosphorus starvation response), from a photosynthetic eukaryote is described, and immunocytochemical studies demonstrate that this protein is nuclear-localized under both nutrient-replete and phosphorus-starvation conditions.
Two genes specifically expressed in fruiting dikaryons of Schizophyllum commune: homologies with a gene not regulated by mating-type genes.
The nucleotide (nt) sequences of the Sc3 and Sc4 genes of the filamentous fungus Schizophyllum commune, and the deduced amino acid (aa) sequences, were determined; moreover, the previously published
Cloning and characterization of two hydrophobin genes differentially expressed during fruit body development in Lentinula edodes.
Poor expression of these two hydrophobins in monokaryotic parents indicates that these two genes are under mating-type regulation, and it is suggested that differential expression ofThese two L. edodes hydrophobia during fruit development may contribute to their distinct roles in fruiting of this mushroom.
Structure of a cDNA for an acid phosphatase from phosphate-deficient lupin (Lupinus albus L.) Roots
Northern blot analysis revealed that the corresponding mRNA accumulated in both shoots and roots under phosphate deficient conditions, and shared a high homology with that of purple APases from germinated seeds of Phaseolus vulgaris and those secreted from Arabidopsis thaliana.
A phosphate-starvation inducible β-glucosidase gene (psr3.2) isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana is a member of a distinct subfamily of the BGA family
We have previously isolated a phosphate starvation-response (psr) cDNA clone, psr3.1, from Brassica nigra which encodes a β-glucosidase. Southern blots of Arabidopsis thaliana genomic DNA probed with
Tomato phosphate transporter genes are differentially regulated in plant tissues by phosphorus.
Divided root-system studies support the hypothesis that signal(s) for the Pi-starvation response may arise internally because of the changes in cellular concentration of phosphorus, and suggest that the epidermally localized Pi transporters may play a significant role in acquiring the nutrient under natural conditions.
