    Nitric oxide radicals are emitted by wasp eggs to kill mold fungi

    Erhard Strohm et al.
    To protect their food and themselves against detrimental mould fungi, the eggs of a wasp species synthesize and emit remarkable amounts of gaseous nitrogen oxides that are highly effective antimicrobials.

    Comment on 'Single nucleus sequencing reveals evidence of inter-nucleus recombination in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi'

    Benjamin Auxier, Anna Bazzicalupo
    We are writing to comment on the article by Chen et al. (2018) about inter-nucleus recombination in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.

    Blumenols as shoot markers of root symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

    Ming Wang et al.
    Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi-induced hydroxy- and carboxyblumenol C glycosides accumulate in plant shoots and allow for facile high-throughput screening for functional plant-AMF associations.

    Single nucleus sequencing reveals evidence of inter-nucleus recombination in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

    Eric CH Chen et al.
    Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi generate nuclear diversity in the dikaryotic life-stage stage via inter-nucleus recombination.

    Nuclear export receptor CRM1 recognizes diverse conformations in nuclear export signals

    Ho Yee Joyce Fung et al.
    Building on previous work (Fung et al., 2015), the structures of eight new nuclear export signal (NES) peptides bound to Exportin CRM1 are reported, revealing striking diversity in NES structures, a small conserved secondary structural element, and a CRM1 residue that functions as a selectivity filter.

    Distinct RanBP1 nuclear export and cargo dissociation mechanisms between fungi and animals

    Yuling Li et al.
    Animal RanBP1 nuclear export and cargo dissociation mechanisms are surprisingly different from yeast, due to mutations of critical residues, leading to greater nuclear transport efficiency and higher energy cost.

    Punctuated evolution and transitional hybrid network in an ancestral cell cycle of fungi

    Edgar M Medina et al.
    Cell cycle network evolution in a fungal ancestor was punctuated by the arrival of a viral DNA-binding protein that was permanently incorporated into the regulatory network controlling cell cycle entry.

    The AP-2 complex has a specialized clathrin-independent role in apical endocytosis and polar growth in fungi

    Olga Martzoukou et al.
    In filamentous fungi the AP-2 complex, which in mammals is an adaptor of clathrin-mediated endocytosis, is recruited to specific clathrin-independent apical endocytosis necessary for proper lipid maintenance and polar growth.

    Lipid transfer from plants to arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi

    Andreas Keymer et al.
    Identification of two arbuscular mycorrhiza-specific lipid biosynthesis mutants and fatty acid transfer experiments reveal that host plant lipids are transferred to symbiotic fungi and needed for their development.
