To explore phylogenetic relationships of Trichaptum species, internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions of nuclear ribosomal DNAs were sequenced and analyzed. Gene trees from ITS1 and ITS2 sequences showed striking discrepancy in relationships of eight T. abietinum strains. All strains of T. abietinum had a single orthologous ITS2 type, but there were three paralogous types in the ITS1 region, which were designated Types I, II, and III. PCR amplification tests using type-specific primers showed… CONTINUE READING
