“…On the other hand, this observation also raises the question whether the gene cluster was lost in specialists or acquired in non-specialist species. Metarhizium species evolved after the divergence of the ascomycete plant pathogenic fungi (Shang et al, 2016; Wang et al, 2016), and the specialist species evolved first (Hu et al, 2014). To adapt to diverse insect hosts, it is possible that the non-specialists acquired the toxin-producing gene cluster during their speciation processes.…”

“…Unlike viruses and bacteria that normally infect through the oral route, M . anisopliae breaches the cuticle reaching directly into the hemocoel using a combination of mechanical pressure and an array of cuticle-degrading enzymes [7]. We previously screened 2,613 insertional mutant Drosophila lines for their effects on resistance to M .…”

“…The type of sexual reproduction in entomopathogenic ascomycete fungi has profound implications on their genetic diversity and host adaptation, with the heterothallic species, such as I. tenuipes , characterized by having broader genetic diversity due to outbreeding pattern, less specialized lifestyle and wider geographic range, contrasting to homothallic species (Wang et al . ). Further studies of I. tenuipes on its lepidopterous hosts may shed some light into the molecular mechanisms involved in virulence, econutritional requirements and host specificity.…”

“…Although little is known about the pathogenic mechanisms of I. tenuipes, it appears that infections may not begin until late larval instars and then become most prominent in the pupal stage when the fungus completely colonizes the host and subsequently produces asexual fruiting bodies (synnemata) on mummified cadavers Fukatsu et al 1997). The type of sexual reproduction in entomopathogenic ascomycete fungi has profound implications on their genetic diversity and host adaptation, with the heterothallic species, such as I. tenuipes, characterized by having broader genetic diversity due to outbreeding pattern, less specialized lifestyle and wider geographic range, contrasting to homothallic species (Wang et al 2016).

“…The recognition of white muscardine disease as the result of an infectious agent, and later, due to specific fungal pathogen, led to one of the first germ theories of disease (Ainsworth, 1956;Porter, 1973). Studies on these entomopathogenic fungi, typified by the members of the Metarhizium and Beauveria genera, are gradually being regarding as model systems applicable to uncovering fundamental aspects of fungal development, stress response and virulence, particularly as these fungi display shared and unique attributes in comparison to plant and animals pathogens (Lu and St Leger, 2016;Wang et al, 2016;Zeng et al, 2017). B. bassiana is both a broad host range insect pathogen and a plant mutualist (Boucias et al, 2018;Moonjely et al, 2018).…”
