  author={Anna M. Glushakova and Aleksey V. Kachalkin and I A Maksimova and I. Yu. Chernov},
Yeast abundance and species diversity in the latex of rubber tree Hevea brasiliensis (Willd. ex Juss.) Müll. Arg., on its green leaves, and in soil below the plant were studied. The yeasts present in the fresh latex in numbers of up to 5.5 log(CFU/g) were almost exclusively represented by the species Candida heveicola. This species was previously isolated from Hevea latex in China. In the course of natural modification of the latex (turned from liquid to solid form), yeast diversity increased… 
Yeast population of the Kindo Peninsula lichens
Yeasts from different taxonomic and ecological groups are a necessary component of lichens; conditions favoring the preservation and development of specific yeast communities differing from the typical soil and phyllosphere yeast complexes are formed in the lichens of northern taiga forests.
Yeasts of Nikitsky Botanical Garden plants
Abundance and taxonomic structure of yeast communities on the surface and in the tissues of various plants of the Nikitsky Botanical Garden was studied, including rare and new species.
Yamadazyma cocois f.a., sp. nov., an ascomycetous yeast isolated from coconuts.
During studies on the endophytic yeast communities associated with fruits from Vietnam, three fermenting yeast strains were isolated from fruits of the coconut palm and were assigned to a novel species of the genus Yamadazyma, for which the name Yamdazyma cocois f.a., sp.
Yeasts producing zeatin
The first screening study of the ability of natural yeast strains to synthesize in culture the plant-related cytokine hormone zeatin, which was carried out using HPLC-MS/MS, demonstrated that epiphytic strains and pigmented yeast species are able to more often produce a plant hormoneZeatin than other yeasts.
Distribution features of yeasts in soils of South Vietnam (case study of the biogeocenoses of the National Park Cát Tiên)
The yeast communities of tropical soils of two biotopes in monsoon tropical forest in the specially protected natural territories of the National Park Cát Tiên were studied. It was possible to
Yeast Communities of the Moscow City Soils
Yeast abundance and diversity were studied in the soils (topsoil) of Moscow city: urban soils under lawn vegetation and close to the areas of household waste disposal, as well as in zonal
Quantitative determination of indole-3-acetic acid in yeasts using high performance liquid chromatography—tandem mass spectrometry
High performance liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) was applied to the comprehensive analysis of the ability of yeast strains to synthesize a plant hormone indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), indicating a specific regulatory role of the plant yeast population.
Microbial communities in natural rubber coagula during maturation: impacts on technological properties of dry natural rubber
To characterize microbial communities present in natural rubber (NR) coagula from Hevea brasiliensis latex during maturation and identify microbial taxa (bacteria and fungi) having an impact on dry


Yeasts in the flowers of entomophilic plants of the Moscow region
The number of yeasts in the flowers was shown to increase gradually during the vegetation period, and reached the maximum during summer-autumn, while the total abundance and ratio of the yeast species in the Flowers depended entirely on the blooming time, rather than on the taxonomic position of the plants.
Ecology of yeasts in plant-bumblebee mutualism in Central Europe.
Candida stigmatis sp. nov., a new anamorphic yeast species isolated from flowers.
Four strains of a previously unknown yeast species are described for which the name Candida stigmatis is proposed, and the new species formed a cluster with a group of six closely related anamorph Candida species.
Resistance of various yeast ecological groups to prolonged storage in dry state
Resistance of 14 yeast species belonging to different ecological groups to extensive storage in a dried state was investigated. Pedobiotic yeasts isolated mainly from the soils of humid areas
Antifungal action of Hevea brasiliensis latex. Its effect in combination with fluconazole on Candida albicans growth
The indispensable role of rubber particles for raising an antifungal effect is demonstrated and a synergistic effect between latex and FCZ was obtained.
Hevein: an antifungal protein from rubber-tree (Hevea brasiliensis) latex
Several chitin-binding proteins were isolated from the “bottom fraction” of Hevea brasiliensis (Müll.) Arg. latex. One of these chitin-binding proteins is hevein, a small monomeric protein which
The Latex of Hevea brasiliensis Contains High Levels of Both Chitinases and Chitinases/Lysozymes.
The latex of the commercial rubber tree was fractionated by ultracentrifugation into a top layer of rubber particles, a cleared cytoplasm, and a pellet that contains primarily specialized vacuoles known as lutoids, suggesting that laticifers serve a defensive role in the plant.
Screening of yeasts from Brazilian Amazon rain forest for extracellular proteinases production.
Candida alocasiicola sp. nov., Candida hainanensis sp. nov., Candida heveicola sp. nov. and Candida musiphila sp. nov., novel anamorphic, ascomycetous yeast species isolated from plants
A taxonomic study on the ascomycetous yeasts isolated from plant materials collected in tropical forests in Yunnan and Hainan Provinces, southern China, four strains isolated from tree sap and flowers were revealed to represent four undescribed yeast species.
The yeast Candida railenensis in the fruits of English oak (Quercus robur L.)
The cotyledons of whole intact acorns were shown to contain yeasts; their number increased sharply before acorn germination, and after germination or exocarp destruction they were colonized by the usual epiphytic and litter yeasts.
