High impact information on Mucorales

  • Amphotericin B and posaconazole were found to be active against most of the Mucorales strains tested [1].
  • A generalized model for both lipases of the Mucorales family highlights the residues mediating stereoselectivity: (1) L258, the C-terminal neighbor of the catalytic histidine, and (2) G266, which is located in a loop contacting the glycerol backbone of a bound substrate [2].
  • Ergosterol was the major sterol of the Dimargaritales, Zoopagales, and 13 of the 14 Mucorales families included in this study [3].
  • Inhibition of the yeast-mycelial transition and the phorogenesis of Mucorales by diamino butanone [4].
  • The diagnosis was made postmortem and autopsy revealed that the pulmonary nodule consisting of mucorales protruded over the luminal surface of the aorta [5].
