Harenicola maris gen. nov., sp. nov. isolated from the Sea of Japan shallow sediments

A Gram-negative, non-motile bacterium КMM 3653T was isolated from a sediment pattern from the Sea of Japan seashore, Russia. On the foundation of the 16S rRNA gene sequence evaluation the pressure КMM 3653T was positioned inside the household Rhodobacteraceae (class Alphaproteobacteria) forming a definite lineage with the highest gene sequence similarities to the members of the genera Pacificibacter (95.2-94.7%) and Nioella (95.1-94.5%),...

Reappraisal of Immotthia in Dictyosporiaceae, Pleosporales: Introducing Immotthia bambusae sp. nov. and Pseudocyclothyriella clematidis comb. et gen. nov. Based on Morphology and Phylogeny

Immotthia is a poorly identified genus, and at present, no DNA sequence knowledge can be found to determine its correct phylogenetic placement and evolutionary relationships with different bitunicate fungi. To date, there are solely two species accepted in the genus. During our ongoing analysis research of bambusicolous fungi in southwest China and Thailand, a fungus related to stromata of Hypoxylon sp. was discovered on lifeless bamboo culms...

Inopinatum lactosum gen. & comb. nov., the first yeast-like fungus in Leotiomycetes

Sporobolomyces lactosus is a pink yeast-like fungus that's not congeneric with different members of Sporobolomyces (Basidiomycota, Microbotryomycetes, Sporidiobolales). During our ongoing research of pink yeasts we decided that S. lactosus was most carefully associated to Pseudeurotium zonatum (Ascomycota, Leotiomycetes, Thelebolales). A molecular phylogenetic evaluation utilizing sequences of the ITS area and the small and enormous...

Yalongaphaenops erwini gen. et sp. nov., the world’s most high-altitude hypogean trechine beetle from China (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Trechinae)

A brand new genus and new species of carabid beetle, Yalongaphaenops erwini gen. et sp. nov., is described from mountains SW of Mianning City, Sichuan Province, China. This discovering, from one aspect, extends the recognized distribution of Chinese hypogean trechines, and from one other, it raises the higher restrict of their vertical distribution to just about 4000 m. Photographs of the habitus and main taxonomic characters, together with...

Paucimyces polynucleatus gen. nov, sp. nov., a novel polycentric genus of anaerobic gut fungi from the faeces of a wild blackbuck antelope

The anaerobic gut fungi (AGF; phylum Neocallimastigomycota) reside in the alimentary tracts of herbivores. Multiple novel, yet-uncultured AGF taxa have just lately been recognized in culture-independent range surveys. Here, we report on the isolation and characterization of the first consultant of the RH5 lineage from faecal samples of a wild blackbuck (Indian Antelope, Antilope cervicapra) from Sutton County, Texas, USA. The isolates...

Cellular immortalization and lentiviral infection: from fibroblasts to hepatocytes in hepatic damage caused by drugs

This week we will talk about the transformation of human fibroblasts into hepatocytes using the biotechnological techniques: infection with lentiviral vectors and cellular immortalization. The purpose? Study a situation with a high idiosyncratic component: the damage that causes the liver of each person and the consumption of medicines. The authors? The Experimental Hepatología Unit of the Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria La Fe de...

Viruses: chameleon beings, from villains to good guys

With the arrival of winter, concerns about the transmission of several viruses, especially the flu, increase. When people think of viruses, they quickly associate them with diseases or chemical weapons. However, for us, biotechnologists, they can also be important tools, as we can use their ability to infiltrate and exploit living systems in favor of society. Calm down, I'll explain to you how this is possible! Well, initially it is necessary...

Respiratory virus detection methods

There are many methods consist on the identifcation of the repiratory virus. Viral respiratory infection can be caused by nemerous viruses: RSV A and RSV B (Respiratory Syncytial Virus). Parainfluenza Virus (types 1–4). Numerous Adenoviruses. Rhinoviruses. metapneumovirus. Bocavirus. Avian Influenza Virus (H5N1 and H7N9). Coronaviruses; including SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Virus) and SARS-COV2 (The novel coronavirus which is responsible...
