fungal endophyte diversity and bioactivity in the indian medicinal plant ocimum sanctum linn.endophytic mycopopulation isolated from india's queen of herbs tulsi (ocimum sanctum) were explored and investigated for their diversity and antiphytopathogenic activity against widespread plant pathogens botrytis cinerea, sclerotinia sclerotiorum, rhizoctonia solani and fusarium oxysporum. 90 fungal isolates, representing 17 genera were recovered from 313 disease-free and surface sterilised plant segments (leaf and stem tissues) from three different geographic locations (delhi, hyderabad and mu ...201526529087
the abc transporter abcg29 is involved in h2o2 tolerance and biocontrol traits in the fungus clonostachys rosea.for successful biocontrol interactions, biological control organisms must tolerate toxic metabolites produced by themselves or plant pathogens during mycoparasitic/antagonistic interactions, by host plant during colonization of the plant, and xenobiotics present in the environment. atp-binding cassette (abc) transporters can play a significant role in tolerance of toxic compounds by mediating active transport across the cellular membrane. this paper reports on functional characterization of an a ...201626520102
plant-microbe rhizosphere interactions mediated by rehmannia glutinosa root exudates under consecutive monoculture.under consecutive monoculture, the biomass and quality of rehmannia glutinosa declines significantly. consecutive monoculture of r. glutinosa in a four-year field trial led to significant growth inhibition. most phenolic acids in root exudates had cumulative effects over time under sterile conditions, but these effects were not observed in the rhizosphere under monoculture conditions. it suggested soil microbes might be involved in the degradation and conversion of phenolic acids from the monocu ...201526515244
fungal pathogen uses sex pheromone receptor for chemotropic sensing of host plant signals.for more than a century, fungal pathogens and symbionts have been known to orient hyphal growth towards chemical stimuli from the host plant. however, the nature of the plant signals as well as the mechanisms underlying the chemotropic response have remained elusive. here we show that directed growth of the soil-inhabiting plant pathogen fusarium oxysporum towards the roots of the host tomato (solanum lycopersicum) is triggered by the catalytic activity of secreted class iii peroxidases, a famil ...201526503056

non-random species loss in bacterial communities reduces antifungal volatile production.the contribution of low-abundance microbial species to soil ecosystems is easily overlooked because there is considerable overlap between metabolic abilities (functional redundancy) of dominant and subordinate microbial species. here we studied how loss of less abundant soil bacteria affected the production of antifungal volatiles, an important factor in the natural control of soil-borne pathogenic fungi. we provide novel empirical evidence that the loss of soil bacterial species leads to a decl ...201526405729
miltefosine is effective against candida albicans and fusarium oxysporum nail biofilms in vitro.onychomycosis is a fungal nail infection that represents ∼50 % of all nail disease cases worldwide. clinical treatment with standard antifungals frequently requires long-term systemic therapy to avoid chronic disease. onychomycosis caused by non-dermatophyte moulds, such as fusarium spp., and yeasts, such as candida spp., is particularly difficult to treat, possibly due to the formation of drug-resistant fungal biofilms on affected areas. here, we show that the alkylphospholipid miltefosine, use ...201526404553
