New species of the genus Metschnikowia isolated from flowers in Indonesia, Metschnikowia cibodasensis sp. nov. (3/3)A novel species, Metschnikowia cibodasensis, is proposed to accommodate eight strains (ID03- 0093(T), ID03-0094, ID03-0095, ID03-0096, ID03-0097, ID03-0098, ID03-0099, and ID03-0109) isolated from flowers of Saurauia pendula, Berberis nepalensis, and Brunfelsia americana in Cibodas Botanical Garden, West Java, Indonesia. The type strain of M. cibodasensis is ID03- 0093(T) (= NBRC 101693(T) =UICC Y-335(T) = BTCC-Y25(T)). The common features of M. cibodasensis are a spherical to ellipsoidopedunculate shaped ascus, which contains one or two needleshaped ascospores, and lyse at maturity. Asci generally develop directly from vegetative cells but sometimes from chlamydospores. The neighbor-joining tree based on the D1/D2 domain of nuclear large subunit (nLSU) ribosomal DNA sequences strongly supports that M. cibodasensis (eight strains) and its closest teleomorphic species, M. reukaufii, are different species by a 100% bootstrap value. The type strain of M. cibodasensis, ID03-0093(T), differed from M. reukaufii NBRC 1679(T) by six nt (five substitutions and one deletion) in their D1/D2 region of nLSU rDNA, and by 18 nt (five deletions, four insertions, and nine substitutions) in their internal transcribed spacer regions of rDNA, respectively. Four strains representative of M. cibodasensis (ID03-0093(T), ID03-0095, ID03-0096, and ID03-0099) showed a mol% G+C content of 44.05 +/- 0.25%, whereas that of M. reukaufii NBRC 1679(T) was 41.3%. The low value of DNADNA homology (5-16%) in four strains of M. cibodasensis and M. reukaufii NBRC 1679(T) strongly supported that these strains represent a distinct species. (+info)
Actinidiaceae is a family of flowering plants that includes the genus Actinidia, commonly known as kiwifruit. The family is native to Asia, with the majority of species found in China and Japan. In the medical field, Actinidiaceae plants are known for their medicinal properties. Some species of Actinidia have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, including digestive disorders, respiratory infections, and inflammation. In recent years, research has focused on the potential health benefits of kiwifruit and other Actinidiaceae plants. Studies have shown that kiwifruit contains high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, which may help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Additionally, some studies have suggested that kiwifruit may have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
Clethraceae is a family of flowering plants that includes about 100 species of shrubs and small trees. They are commonly known as the "clove trees" or "clove bushes" because some species produce aromatic cloves that are used in cooking and traditional medicine. In the medical field, Clethraceae plants are not commonly used for medicinal purposes. However, some species have been studied for their potential medicinal properties. For example, the bark of the Indian bay laurel (Clethra arborea) has been used in traditional medicine to treat fever, cough, and other respiratory ailments. The leaves of the Japanese bay laurel (Clethra barbinervis) have been used to treat digestive problems and as a diuretic. Overall, while Clethraceae plants may have some potential medicinal uses, more research is needed to fully understand their properties and potential applications in medicine.
Actinidia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Actinidiaceae, commonly known as kiwifruit. The genus includes several species of edible fruit, which are native to China and other parts of Asia. In the medical field, Actinidia species have been studied for their potential health benefits. Some studies have suggested that kiwifruit may have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer properties. The fruit is also a good source of vitamins C and K, as well as potassium and fiber. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of Actinidia species, and to determine the appropriate dosage and duration of use for any potential therapeutic applications. As with any dietary supplement or food, it is important to speak with a healthcare provider before using Actinidia or any other supplement.

- Furthermore, biological characteristics of the cells, and molecular evidence have confirmed the three genera currently circumscribed in the Actinidiaceae, Clematoclethra, Saurauia, and Actinidia, do indeed form a monophyletic group. (wikipedia.org)
- Before genetic evidence appeared in the last 10 years, the placement of the Actinidiaceae within the Ericales was highly controversial. (wikipedia.org)
- Placement of the Actinidiaceae within the Ericales has been strongly supported recently by genetic evidence, and contrary to previous thought, it is not a basal member of the Ericales. (wikipedia.org)
- For direct comparisons with flowers of extant Ericales, selected floral features of Actinidiaceae and Clethraceae were studied with SEM. (northwestern.edu)
- Conclusions Comparison with extant taxa provides clear evidence for a relationship with core Ericales comprised of the extant families Actinidiaceae, Roridulaceae, Sarraceniaceae, Clethraceae, Cyrillaceae and Ericaceae. (northwestern.edu)
- Multiple studies using genetic evidence now firmly place the Actinidiaceae in the Ericoid clade, a monophyletic group consisting of the Ericaceae, the Cyrillaceae, the Clethraceae, the Sarraceniaceae, and the Roridulaceae. (wikipedia.org)
- Further genetic evidence points to the Actinidiaceae being sister to the Roridulaceae, with the Roridulaceae and Sarraceniaceae, forming another, smaller, monophyletic group. (wikipedia.org)
- Within this group, the most marked similarities are with extant Actinidiaceae and, to a lesser degree, with Clethraceae. (northwestern.edu)
