Lichtheimia ramosa (JMRC:FSU6197)

Lichtheimia ramosa was formerly synonymized with Lichtheimia corymbifera, but classified into a distinct species based on the morphological, growth physiological and phylogenetic data. At the level of carbon utilization L. ramosa can be distinguished from L. corymbifera by its ability to assimilate the oligosaccharides melecitose and palatinose (isomaltulose) as sole carbon sources, which could not be observed in L. corymbifera.
L. ramosa belongs to the family Lichtheimiaceae within the order Mucorales. The species is clinically. It was reported to be the most common causative agent of Lichtheimia-induced mucormycoses in human, which are emerging especially in Europe. L. ramosa is representative for the most ancient thermophilic lineage within the Mucorales. The genome project on L. ramosa attempts to elucidate the evolutionary origin of thermophily within the Mucorales and its significance in pathogenicity.
