The current investigation revealed the presence of Chytridiomycetes and other classes in high percentage.
In particular, 2 emerging pathogenic fungi--the chytridiomycete Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, which causes chytridiomycosis in amphibians (4,5), and the ascomycete Geomyces destructans, which causes white-nose syndrome (WNS) in hibernating bats (6)--are implicated in the widespread decline of their vertebrate hosts.
If The ORF is not predicted to have a [beta]-strand length [less than or equal to] 3 and a homologous protein from class Chytridiomycetes was found Then its functional class is "Cell processes, Transport/binding proteins" Acknowledgments
Por ejemplo, en muestras del Triasico aparecieron muestras abundantes de Zygomycetes representados en su mayoria por hongos de los ordenes Endogonales y Glonales; en muestras del periodo Pennsilvanico aparecieron importantes muestras le Chytridiomycetes y algunas muestras de hifas con fibulas caracteristicas de los Basidiomycetes.
The vast majority of fungi are terrestrial, but the chytridiomycetes, a basal group of fungi, includes flagellated, unicellular, aquatic forms, and it is likely that this was the ancestral condition of the group (1).
The last reviews on fungal diversity in a variety of peatlands in Europe, North and South America (Thormann, 2006; Thormann & Rice, 2007) report 601 species of fungi identified globally, being Ascomycetes the largest group with 276 species (46%), followed by Basidiomycetes (243 species, 40%), Zygomycetes (55 species, 9%), and Chytridiomycetes (26 species, 4%).
