relationship of pathogenicity to tobacco leaves and toxicity to chickes of isolates of alternaria hundred thirty-seven single-conidium isolates of alternaria longipes were tested for pathogenicity to tobacco leaves and for toxicity to 1-day-old chicks. of 58 isolates pathogenic to tobacco, 43 (74.3%) had a significant effect on test chicks. of 79 nonpathogenic isolates, 59 (74.7%) were nontoxic, 7 were toxic, and 13 were lethal. a relationship between pathogenicity and toxicity is suggested.19725062883

small cysteine-rich antifungal proteins from radish: their role in host defense.radish seeds have previously been shown to contain two homologous, 5-kd cysteine-rich proteins designated raphanus sativus-antifungal protein 1 (rs-afp1) and rs-afp2, both of which exhibit potent antifungal activity in vitro. we now demonstrate that these proteins are located in the cell wall and occur predominantly in the outer cell layers lining different seed organs. moreover, rs-afps are preferentially released during seed germination after disruption of the seed coat. the amount of released ...19957780308
cutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused by alternaria longipes in an immunosuppressed patient.alternaria longipes was reported as the agent of a cutaneous infection in a patient with a neoplastic disease. the fungus has not been reported previously as causing disease in humans. it was distinguished by its rather small conidia with smooth or slightly verruculose walls and a pale brown beak which rarely extended into a secondary conidiophore. in vitro inhibitory activities of amphotericin b, ketoconazole, itraconazole, and miconazole were shown.19958567925
