effect of light conditions on the resistance of current-year fagus crenata seedlings against fungal pathogens causing damping-off in a natural beech forest: fungus isolation and histological and chemical resistance.forest gap dynamics affects light intensity on the forest floor, which in turn may influence defense and survival of tree seedlings. current-year fagus crenata seedlings show high mortality under the canopy caused by damping-off. in contrast, they survive pathogen attacks in gaps. however, defense mechanisms against damping-off have not been fully understood. in order to determine the resistance factors that affect mortality in current-year seedlings, we compared seedling survival and chemical a ...200919774414
colonization of morus alba l. by the plant-growth-promoting and antagonistic bacterium burkholderia cepacia strain lu10-1.anthracnose, caused by colletotrichum dematium, is a serious threat to the production and quality of mulberry leaves in susceptible varieties. control of the disease has been a major problem in mulberry cultivation. some strains of burkholderia cepacia were reported to be useful antagonists of plant pests and could increase the yields of several crop plants. although b. cepacia lu10-1 is an endophytic bacterium obtained from mulberry leaves, it has not been deployed to control c. dematium infect ...201020854669

molecular phylogeny, diversity, and bioprospecting of endophytic fungi associated with wild ethnomedicinal north american plant echinacea purpurea (asteraceae).the endophytic fungal community associated with the ethnomedicinal plant echinacea purpurea was investigated as well as its potential for providing antifungal compounds against plant pathogenic fungi. a total of 233 endophytic fungal isolates were obtained and classified into 42 different taxa of 16 genera, of which alternaria alternata, colletotrichum dematium, and stagonosporopsis sp. 2 are the most frequent colonizers. the extracts of 29 endophytic fungi displayed activities against important ...201627273012
pathogen-induced systemic resistance in ipomoea purpurea.infection of ipomoea purpurea by anthracnose, the disease caused by the fungal pathogen colletotrichum dematium, increases resistance to subsequent infections on previously uninfected leaves. fungal isolates varied in their levels of virulence but not in the extent to which they induced resistance. induced resistance was equally effective against all isolates tested. plant lines varied in the baseline level of resistance expressed in newly emerging leaves. in some lines, new leaves were poorly d ...199528306893
effects of biosurfactants, mannosylerythritol lipids, on the hydrophobicity of solid surfaces and infection behaviours of plant pathogenic fungi.to investigate the effects of mannosylerythritol lipids (mels) on the hydrophobicity of solid surfaces, their suppressive activity against the early infection behaviours of several phytopathogenic fungal conidia, and their suppressive activity against disease occurrences on fungal host plant leaves.201525898775
systematic analysis of the anticancer agent taxol-producing capacity in colletotrichum species and use of the species for taxol production.paclitaxel (taxol) has long been used as a potent anticancer agent for the treatment of many cancers. ever since the fungal species taxomyces andreanae was first shown to produce taxol in 1993, many endophytic fungal species have been recognized as taxol accumulators. in this study, we analyzed the taxol-producing capacity of different colletotrichum spp. to determine the distribution of a taxol biosynthetic gene within this genus. distribution of the taxadiene synthase (ts) gene, which cyclizes ...201627433121
colletotrichum dematium produces phytotoxins in anthracnose lesions of mulberry leaves.abstract colletotrichum dematium, the causal agent of mulberry anthracnose, was examined to produce phytotoxins in vitro and in planta. raw and autoclaved mulberry leaves infected with the fungus, as well as the fungus incubated with several solid or liquid media, were extracted with acetone. extracts obtained from the fungus grown on raw and autoclaved mulberry leaves caused brown necrotic lesions on susceptible mulberry leaves when they were placed (10 mul) on the wounded adaxial surface. wher ...200018944621
antimicrobial activity of culture filtrate of bacillus amyloliquefaciens rc-2 isolated from mulberry leaves.abstract a potential antagonist, bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain rc-2, against colletotrichum dematium, mulberry anthracnose fungus, was obtained from healthy mulberry leaves by in vitro and in vivo screening techniques. application of culture filtrate of rc-2 inhibited disease on mulberry leaves, indicating that suppression was due to antifungal compounds in the filtrate. development of mulberry anthracnose on mulberry leaves was inhibited only when the culture filtrate was applied before fun ...200118944392
fungal endophthalmitis complicating subconjunctival injection of triamcinolone acetonide in anterior scleritis.fungal endophthalmitis following subconjunctival triamcinolone acetonide in anterior scleritis is a rare complication. two patients with anterior scleritis, who received subconjunctival injection of triamcinolone developed fungal endophthalmitis. both patients were positive by smear and polymerase chain reaction for 28s ribosomal rna gene for fungus. colletotrichum dematium was identified in one patient. both patients responded well to pars plana vitrectomy and antifungal therapy.200617416964
growth promoting influence of siderophore-producing pseudomonas strains grp3a and prs9 in maize (zea mays l.) under iron limiting conditions.maize seeds were bacterized with siderophore-producing pseudomonads with the goal to develop a system suitable for better iron uptake under iron-stressed conditions. siderophore production was compared in fluorescent pseudomonas spp. grp3a, prs9 and p. chlororaphis atcc 9446 in standard succinate (ssm) and citrate (scm) media. succinate was better suited for siderophore production, however, deferration of media resulted in increased siderophore production in all the strains. maximum siderophore ...200314521234
mulberry anthracnose antagonists (iturins) produced by bacillus amyloliquefaciens rc-2.bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain rc-2 produced seven antifungal compounds (1-7) secreted into the culture filtrate. these compounds inhibited the development of mulberry anthracnose caused by the fungus, colletotrichum dematium. chemical structural analyses by nmr and fab-ms revealed that all these compounds were iturins (cyclic peptides with the following sequence: l-asn --> d-tyr --> d-asn --> l-gln --> l-pro --> d-asn --> l-ser --> d-beta-amino acid -->) and compounds 1-6 are identical to it ...200212423891
