  • biocatalytic portfolio of Basidiomycota
    Current Opinion in Chemical Biology, 2016
    Co-Authors: Claudia Schmidtdannert

    Abstract:

    Basidiomycota fungi have received little attention for applications in biocatalysis and biotechnology and remain greatly understudied despite their importance for carbon recycling, ecosystem functioning and medicinal properties. The steady influx of genome data has facilitated detailed studies aimed at understanding the evolution and function of fungal lignocellulose degradation. These studies and recent explorations into the secondary metabolomes have uncovered large portfolios of enzymes useful for biocatalysis and biosynthesis. This review will provide an overview of the biocatalytic repertoires of Basidiomycota characterized to date with the hope of motivation more research into the chemical toolkits of this diverse group of fungi.

  • draft genome of omphalotus olearius provides a predictive framework for sesquiterpenoid natural product biosynthesis in Basidiomycota
    Chemistry & Biology, 2012
    Co-Authors: Grayson Thomas Wawrzyn, Maureen B. Quin, Swati Choudhary, Fernando Lopezgallego, Claudia Schmidtdannert

    Abstract:

    Summary The secondary metabolome of Basidiomycota represents a largely uncharacterized source of pharmaceutically relevant natural products. Terpenoids are the primary class of bioactive compounds isolated from mushrooms. The Jack O’Lantern mushroom Omphalotus olearius was identified 50 years ago as a prolific producer of anticancer illudin sesquiterpenoids; however, to date there have been exceptionally few studies into the biosynthesis of these important compounds. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of O. olearius , which reveals a diverse network of sesquiterpene synthases and two metabolic gene clusters associated with illudin biosynthesis. Characterization of the sesquiterpene synthases enabled a comprehensive survey of all currently available Basidiomycota genomes, thereby creating a predictive resource for terpenoid natural product biosynthesis in these organisms. Our results will facilitate discovery and biosynthetic production of unique pharmaceutically relevant bioactive compounds from Basidiomycota.

  • New Species of Termitomyces (Lyophyllaceae, Basidiomycota) from Sabah (Northern Borneo), Malaysia
    Mycobiology, 2020
    Co-Authors: Jaya Seelan Sathiya Seelan, Mahadimenakbar Mohamed Dawood, Myung Soo Park

    Abstract:

    AbstractThe genus Termitomyces (Lyophyllaceae, Basidiomycota) is often associated with fungus-feeding termites (Macrotermitinae) due to their strong symbiotic relationships. The genus is widely fou…

  • Revision of Protohydnum (Auriculariales, Basidiomycota)
    Mycological Progress, 2018
    Co-Authors: Vera Malysheva, Jaya Seelan Sathiya Seelan, Viacheslav Spirin, Otto Miettinen, Viviana Motato-vásquez, Karl-henrik Larsson

    Abstract:

    Three species currently addressed to Protohydnum ( Auriculariales ) are studied with morphological and DNA methods. The genus Protohydnum is retained for the type species only, P. cartilagineum , recently re-collected in Brazil. The European species, P. piceicola , is not congeneric with P. cartilagineum and, therefore, placed in its own genus, Hyalodon , gen. nov. Another Hyalodon species, H. antui , is described from East Asia. The third member of Protohydnum sensu lato, P. sclerodontium from South-East Asia, is transferred to Elmerina .

  • On Protomerulius and Heterochaetella (Auriculariales, Basidiomycota)
    Mycological Progress, 2019
    Co-Authors: Viacheslav Spirin, Renato Lúcio Mendes Alvarenga, Vera Malysheva, Tatiana Baptista Gibertoni, Leif Ryvarden, Josef Vlasák, Otto Miettinen, Karl-henrik Larsson

    Abstract:

    The taxonomy of Protomerulius and Heterochaetella is revised based on DNA data and morphological evidence, and their type species, P. brasiliensis and H. dubia , are proved to be congeneric. As a consequence, H. dubia and related species, of which four are described as new, are placed in Protomerulius . Heterochaete microspora is also combined in Protomerulius , and the genus concept is redefined to encompass effused species with smooth or spiny hymenophore and monomitic hyphal structure. Psilochaete multifora , gen. and spec. nov. is a distant relative of Protomerulius spp. found in Norway. Heterochaetella cystidiophora is re-collected in Brazil and placed in the synonyms of Heterochaete sanctae-catharinae . This species does not belong to the Protomerulius–Heterochaetella lineage, and it is transferred to Metulochaete , gen. nov.

  • Two new genera and six other novelties in Heterochaete sensu lato (Auriculariales, Basidiomycota)
    Botany, 2019
    Co-Authors: Renato Lúcio Mendes Alvarenga, Viacheslav Spirin, Vera Malysheva, Tatiana Baptista Gibertoni, Karl-henrik Larsson

    Abstract:

    The genus Heterochaete (Auriculariales, Basidiomycota) is traditionally defined as comprising resupinate fungal species with sterile spines (hyphal pegs) that are distributed on hymenial surface. R…
