Missing link between fungi and an extreme group of parasites explains evolution
Extreme adaptations of species often cause such significant changes that their evolutionary history is difficult to reconstruct. Zoologists at the University of Basel in Switzerland have now discovered a new parasite species that represents the missing link between fungi and an extreme group of parasites. Researches are now able to understand for the first time the evolution of these parasites, causing disease in humans and animals. The study has been published in the latest issue of the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Parasites use their hosts to simplify their own lives. In order to do so, they evolved features that are so extreme that it is often impossible to compare them to other species. The evolution of these extreme adaptations is often impossible to reconstruct. The research group lead by Prof. Dieter Ebert from the Department of Environmental Science at the University of Basel has now discovered the missing link that explains how this large group of extreme parasites, the microsporidia, has evolved. The team was supported in their efforts by scientists from Sweden and the U.S.

Microsporidia are a large group of extreme parasites that invade humans and animals and cost great damage for health care systems and in agriculture; over 1,200 species are known. They live inside their host's cells and have highly specialized features: They are only able to reproduce inside the host's cells, they have the smallest known genome of all organisms with a cell nucleus (eukaryotes) and they posses no mitochondria of their own (the cell's power plant). In addition, they developed a specialized infection apparatus, the polar tube, which they use to insert themselves into the cells of their host. Due to their phenomenal high molecular evolution rate, genome analysis has so far been rather unsuccessful: Their great genomic divergence from all other known organisms further complicates the study of their evolutionary lineage.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Yes but its getting overrun by ebola threads chuckle

Interesting, thanks

The microsporidia infection Nosema ceranae is a huge contributor to honey bee decline.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Looks sorta like more Cartoon science?

They can't seem to track it because "Their great genomic divergence"?

So...

Make up a cool story, and some cartoons, and your good to go?

Maybe Bath-House-Barry will share his Nobel Beast Prize?

This is interesting- thank you.
Have reading up on and dealing with fungus lately, at first not by choice- got caught up in a bad rental riddled with it.
After some time and research i have to say i have a new appreciation for it.

Fascinating stuff. If i had my time over i would study Microbiology.
