Bio-control of the soil-borne pathogen Rhizoctonia solani of radish (Raphanus sativus L.) by Trichoderma species
(Lincoln University, 2018)
The soil-borne fungus Rhizoctonia solani is an important pathogen of Brassicae crops worldwide, including red vegetable radish (Raphanus sativus). However, the impact of R. solani on New Zealand radish production has not ...
The NADPH oxidases Nox1 and Nox2 differentially regulate volatile organic compounds, fungitastic activity, plant growth promotion and nutrient assimilation in Trichoderma atroviride
(Frontiers Media, 2019-01-23)
In eukaryotic systems, membrane-bound NADPH oxidases (Nox) generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) as a part of normal physiological functions. In the soil-borne mycoparasitic and plant facultative symbiont Trichoderma ...
TrichoGate: An improved vector system for a large scale of functional analysis of Trichoderma genes
(Frontiers Media, 2019-12-10)
Species of the genus Trichoderma are ubiquitous in the environment and are widely used in agriculture, as biopesticides, and in the industry for the production of plant cell wall-degrading enzymes. Trichoderma represents ...
Pectobacterium atrosepticum and Pectobacterium carotovorum harbor distinct, independently acquired integrative and conjugative elements encoding coronafacic acid that enhance virulence on potato stems
(Frontiers Media, 2016-03-31)
Integrative and conjugative elements (ICEs) play a central role in the evolution of bacterial virulence, their transmission between bacteria often leading to the acquisition of virulence factors that alter host range or ...
Transcriptional reprogramming of Arabidopsis thaliana defence pathways by the entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana correlates with resistance against a fungal pathogen but not against insects
(Frontiers Media, 2019-03-29)
The entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana can adopt an endophytic lifestyle by colonising a wide array of plant species. Beauveria-colonised plants can show enhanced resistance against insects and plant pathogens ...
Detection of the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana in the rhizosphere of wound-stressed Zea mays plants
(Frontiers Media, 2018-06-11)
Entomopathogenic fungi from the genus Beauveria (Vuillemin) play an important role in controlling insect populations and have been increasingly utilized for the biological control of insect pests. Various studies have ...
