liquid-culture production of blastospores of the bioinsecticidal fungus paecilomyces fumosoroseus using portable fermentation equipment.the production of fungal spores using on-site, non-sterile, portable fermentation equipment is technically constrained. very little information is available on the production requirements, such as medium concentration, inoculum stabilization, required fermentation times, and maintenance of axenic growth. in this study, we developed a two-part, liquid concentrate of the production medium that remains stable and soluble at room temperature. we also examined inoculum stability and showed that freez ...200415071762
effect of serial transfer of three strains of paecilomyces fumosoroseus on growth in vitro, virulence, and host specificity.serial passage of entomopathogenic hyphomycetes has been shown to alter virulence and host specificity. we evaluated virulence, host specificity, biomass production, conidiation, conidial germination, and a genetic fingerprint of 3 strains of paecilomyces fumosoroseus after passage in vitro or in vivo in diuraphis noxia or plutella xylostella. strain 4461 did not change in virulence toward d. noxia or p. xylostella after 30 passages in vitro nor after 15 passages in d. noxia. however, it lost vi ...200414992859
light-regulated asexual reproduction in paecilomyces fumosoroseus.the entomopathogenic fungus paecilomyces fumosoroseus has been successfully used in the control of several insect pests. asexually produced spores (conidia) are the means for dispersal and transmission of the entomopathogen; upon contact with the insect cuticle they germinate and penetrate the host. in model fungal systems it has been found that phototropism, resetting of the circadian rhythm, the induction of carotenogenesis and the development of reproductive structures are controlled by blue ...200414766909
