Yeasts found on an ephemeral reproductive caste of the leaf-cutting ant Atta sexdens rubropilosa
(Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek International Journal Of General And Molecular Microbiology, 2014-09-01) [Artigo]
Winged males of leaf-cutting ants are considered an ephemeral reproductive caste only produced before the mating flight season. Although much is known about the yeast diversity found in fungus gardens of attine ants, no ...
Starmerella aceti f.a., sp nova, an ascomycetous yeast species isolated from fungus garden of the leafcutter ant Acromyrmex balzani
(International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
A novel yeast-species was recovered from the fungus garden of the leaf-cutting ant Acromyrmex balzani (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). The growth of the novel yeast species is limited by its ability to metabolize only a few ...
Broad Escovopsis-inhibition activity of Pseudonocardia associated with Trachymyrmex ants
(Environmental Microbiology Reports, 2014-08-01) [Artigo]
Attine ants maintain an association with antibiotic-producing Actinobacteria found on their integuments. Evidence supports these bacteria as auxiliary symbionts that help ants to defend the fungus gardens against pathogens. ...
Wickerhamiella kiyanii f.a., sp nov and Wickerhamiella fructicola f.a., sp nov., two yeasts isolated from native plants of Atlantic rainforest in Brazil
(International Journal Of Systematic And Evolutionary Microbiology, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
Two novel species, Wickerhamiella kiyanii f.a., sp. nov. (type strain FB1-1DASP(T)=CBS 12905(T)=CBMAI 1613(T)) and Wickerhamiella fructicola f.a., sp. nov. (type strain H10Y(T)=CBS 12902(T)=CBMAI 1614(T)) are proposed in ...
