Two yeast isolates producing asci-containing elongate ascospores with curved ends typical of the genus Spathaspora were isolated from rotting wood samples collected in an Atlantic rainforest ecosystem in Brazil. Phylogenetic analysis of the LSU rRNA gene D1/D2 domain sequences demonstrated that the strains represent a new species and placed it next to Candida blackwellae, in a clade that also contains Candida albicans and Candida dubliniensis. Other sequences of the ribosomal gene cluster suppor...

Abstract We present the draft genome sequence of the type strain of the yeast Sugiyamaella xylanicola UFMG-CM-Y1884 T (= UFMG-CA-32.1 T = CBS 12683 T ), a xylan-degrading species capable of fermenting d -xylose to ethanol. The assembled genome has a size of ~ 13.7 Mb and a GC content of 33.8% and contains 5971 protein-coding genes. We identified 15 genes with significant similarity to the d -xylose reductase gene from several other fungal species. The draft genome assembled from whole-genome sho...

Sixteen yeast isolates identified as belonging to the genus Sugiyamaella were studied in relation to D-xylose fermentation, xylitol production, and xylanase activities. The yeasts were recovered from rotting wood and sugarcane bagasse samples in different Brazilian regions. Sequence analyses of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and the D1/D2 domains of large subunit rRNA gene showed that these isolates belong to seven new species. The species are described here as Sugiyamaella ayubii ...

Five ascosporogenous yeast strains related to the genus Kazachstania were isolated. Two strains (CLIB 1764T and CLIB 1780) were isolated from French sourdoughs; three others (UFMG-CM-Y273T, UFMG-CM-Y451 and UFMG-CM-Y452) were from rotting wood in Brazil. The sequences of the French and Brazilian strains differed by one and three substitutions, respectively, in the D1/D2 large subunit (LSU) rRNA gene and the internal transcribed spacer (ITS). The D1/D2 LSU rRNA sequence of these strains differed ...

Two strains representing a novel species of the genus Saturnispora were isolated from rotting wood samples collected in an Atlantic Rainforest site in Brazil. Analyses of the sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the rRNA gene showed that this novel species belongs to a subclade in the Saturnispora clade formed by Saturnispora sanitii, Saturnispora sekii, Saturnispora silvae and Saturnispora suwanaritii. The novel species differed in D1/D2 sequences by 60 or more nucleotide substitutions from these ...

Three novel D-xylose-fermenting yeast species of Spathaspora clade were recovered from rotting wood in regions of the Atlantic Rainforest ecosystem in Brazil. Differentiation of new species was based on analyses of the gene encoding the D1/D2 sequences of large subunit of rRNA and on 642 conserved, single-copy, orthologous genes from genome sequence assemblies from the newly described species and 15 closely-related Debaryomycetaceae/Metschnikowiaceae species. Spathaspora girioi sp. nov. produced...

Three strains of a new xylanase-producing yeast species were isolated from rotting wood samples collected in the Atlantic Rain Forest of Brazil. The sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region and D1/D2 domains of the large subunit of the rRNA gene showed that this novel yeast species belongs to the genus Spencermartinsiella, and its closest relatives among recognized species are Spencermartinsiella europaea and Spencermartinsiella ligniputridi. A novel species, named Spencermartinsiella...

Abstract This study investigated the yeast species associated with rotting wood in Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest ecosystems focusing on the identification of D-xylose-fermenting and/or xylanase-producing species. A total of 321 yeast strains were isolated from rotting wood samples collected in two Atlantic Rainforest areas. These samples were cultured in yeast nitrogen base (YNB)-D-xylose or YNB-xylan media. Schwanniomyces polymorphus, Scheffersomyces queiroziae, Barnettozyma californica, and Ca...

Four strains of a novel yeast species were isolated from rotting-wood samples in an Atlantic rainforest site in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. These yeasts were obtained from enrichments using yeast nitrogen base (YNB)-d-xylose or YNB-xylan media. The novel yeast species produces bacilliform ascospores typical of the genus Sugiyamaella, and its closest described relative in terms of sequence similarity is Candida (iter. nom. Sugiyamaella) marionensis. The yeast is able to grow in medium with...
