Background Chinese cordyceps, also known as Chinese caterpillar fungus (Ophiocordyceps sinensis, syn. Cordyceps sinensis), is of particular interest for its cryptic life cycle and economic and ecological importance. The large-scale artificial cultivation was succeeded recently after several decades of efforts and attempts. However, the induction of primordium, sexual development of O. sinensis and the molecular basis of its lifestyle still remain cryptic.

AbstractChinese cordyceps, an entity of the Chinese caterpillar fungus (Ophiocordyceps sinensis, syn. Cordyceps sinensis) that parasitizes ghost moth larvae, is one of the best known traditional Chinese medicines and is found exclusively on the Tibetan Plateau with limited natural resources. Although the fungus O. sinensis can grow on artificial substrates and the ghost moth has been successfully reared, the large-scale artificial cultivation of Chinese cordyceps has only recently been accomplis...

Morels are some of the most highly prized edible and medicinal mushrooms, and the outdoor cultivation has been achieved in China in recent years. Sclerotial formation is one of the most important phases during the morel life cycle, and the number of sclerotia indicates the spawn quality during cultivation. However, the sclerotial formation and differentiation mechanisms are poorly understood. In this study, the sclerotial formation process of Morchella importuna and the effects of reactive oxyge...

Albinism has been used for new variety screening in some edible mushrooms and the underlying mechanisms are fascinating. Albino fruiting body of Cordyceps militaris, a well-known edible fungus and model organism for Cordyceps, has the potential for nutraceuticals or functional foods due to its high content metabolites and antioxidant activities. In this study, a spontaneous albino mutant strain (505) of C. militaris was obtained. Comparing with its normal sibling strain (498), albino strain rema...

AbstractMorels (Morchella, Ascomycota), which are some of the most highly prized edible and medicinal mushrooms, are of great economic and scientific value. Morel cultivation has been a research focus worldwide for more than 100 years, and the outdoor cultivation of morels has succeeded and expanded to a large scale in China in recent years. In this study, we review the progress in recent research regarding the life cycle and reproductive systems in the genus Morchella and the current state of o...

ABSTRACTN6-(2-Hydroxyethyl)-adenosine (HEA), which was the first calcium antagonist derived from biological sources, has been intensively investigated because of its ability to inhibit tumour cell proliferation, restrain inflammation, protect kidneys and function as a sedative and insecticide. Up to now, the production of HEA has been detected only in a few species such as Cordyceps pruinosa, C. militaris and Isaria tenuipes. Here, we found a new HEA-producing fungus, which was identified as Bea...

Cryptochromes (CRYs) belong to the photolyase/cryptochrome flavoprotein family, which is widely distributed in all kingdoms. A phylogenetic analysis indicated that three Cordyceps militaris proteins [i.e., cryptochrome DASH (CmCRY-DASH), (6-4) photolyase, and cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer (CPD) class I photolyase] belong to separate fungal photolyase/cryptochrome subfamilies. CmCRY-DASH consists of DNA photolyase and flavin adenine dinucleotide-binding domains, with RGG repeats in a C-terminal ex...
