PNAS: Fusion of two divergent fungal individuals led to the recent emergence of a unique widespread pathogen species (2012)

PNAS: Fusion of two divergent fungal individuals led to the recent emergence of a unique widespread pathogen species (2012) | Plant Genomics | Scoop.it

In a genome alignment of five individuals of the ascomycete fungus Zymoseptoria pseudotritici, a close relative of the wheat pathogen Z. tritici (synonym Mycosphaerella graminicola), we observed peculiar diversity patterns. Long regions up to 100 kb without variation alternate with similarly long regions of high variability. The variable segments in the genome alignment are organized into two main haplotype groups that have diverged ∼3% from each other. The genome patterns in Z. pseudotritici are consistent with a hybrid speciation event resulting from a cross between two divergent haploid individuals. The resulting hybrids formed the new species without backcrossing to the parents. We observe no variation in 54% of the genome in the five individuals and estimate a complete loss of variation for at least 30% of the genome in the entire species. A strong population bottleneck following the hybridization event caused this loss of variation. Variable segments in the Z. pseudotritici genome exhibit the two haplotypes contributed by the parental individuals. From our previously estimated recombination map of Z. tritici and the size distribution of variable chromosome blocks untouched by recombination we estimate that the hybridization occurred ∼380 sexual generations ago. We show that the amount of lost variation is explained by genetic drift during the bottleneck and by natural selection, as evidenced by the correlation of presence/absence of variation with gene density and recombination rate. The successful spread of this unique reproductively isolated pathogen highlights the strong potential of hybridization in the emergence of pathogen species with sexual reproduction.

The Paleozoic Origin of Enzymatic Lignin Decomposition Reconstructed from 31 Fungal Genomes

Wood is a major pool of organic carbon that is highly resistant to decay, owing largely to the presence of lignin. The only organisms capable of substantial lignin decay are white rot fungi in the Agaricomycetes, which also contains non–lignin-degrading brown rot and ectomycorrhizal species. Comparative analyses of 31 fungal genomes (12 generated for this study) suggest that lignin-degrading peroxidases expanded in the lineage leading to the ancestor of the Agaricomycetes, which is reconstructed as a white rot species, and then contracted in parallel lineages leading to brown rot and mycorrhizal species. Molecular clock analyses suggest that the origin of lignin degradation might have coincided with the sharp decrease in the rate of organic carbon burial around the end of the Carboniferous period.

Genome sequence of the model medicinal mushroom Ganoderma lucidum

Ganoderma lucidum is a widely used medicinal macrofungus in traditional Chinese medicine
that creates a diverse set of bioactive compounds. Here we report its 43.3-Mb genome,
encoding 16,113 predicted genes, obtained using next-generation sequencing and optical
mapping approaches. The sequence analysis reveals an impressive array of genes encoding
cytochrome P450s (CYPs), transporters and regulatory proteins that cooperate in secondary
metabolism. The genome also encodes one of the richest sets of wood degradation enzymes
among all of the sequenced basidiomycetes. In all, 24 physical CYP gene clusters are identifi ed.
Moreover, 78 CYP genes are coexpressed with lanosterol synthase, and 16 of these show high
similarity to fungal CYPs that specifi cally hydroxylate testosterone, suggesting their possible
roles in triterpenoid biosynthesis. The elucidation of the G. lucidum genome makes this organism
a potential model system for the study of secondary metabolic pathways and their regulation
in medicinal fungi.
