Solubilization of Phosphates and Micronutrients by the Plant-Growth-Promoting and Biocontrol Fungus Trichoderma harzianum Rifai 1295-22
TLDR
This is the first report of the ability of a Trichoderma strain to solubilize some insoluble or sparingly soluble minerals via three possible mechanisms: acidification of the medium, production of chelating metabolites, and redox activity.
Production of type A trichothecenes and enniatin B byFusarium sambucinum Fuckel sensu lato
TLDR
The lack of correlation between the amounts of toxins recovered and toxic activity observed in the Geotrichum candidum Link ex Pers.
Natural occurrence of beauvericin in preharvest Fusarium subglutinans infected corn ears in Poland
TLDR
The natural occurrence of BEA in corn is reported here for the first time and proved to be toxic in Artemia salina bioassay.
Pathogenicity of Fusarium graminearum Chemotypes Towards Corn, Wheat, Triticale and Rye
TLDR
The pathogenicity of nine Fusarium graminearum isolates belonging to three different trichothecene-producing chemotypes, i.e. NIV + FUS, DON + 3-Acdon, and DON + 15-AcDON was tested on corn, wheat, triticale and rye, and no difference in pathogenicicity was observed among the mean values for chemotypes.
Bioremediation of aflatoxin B1-contaminated maize by king oyster mushroom (Pleurotus eryngii)
TLDR
Neither the biomass produced on the mushroom substrate nor the mature basidiocarps contained detectable levels of AFB1 or its metabolite aflatoxicol, thus ruling out the translocation of these toxins through the fungal thallus.
Beneficial Soil Microorganisms, an Ecological Alternative for Soil Fertility Management
The new challenges that will be faced by agriculture in the twenty-first century impose the adoption of strategies able to increase food production without further increase the area of arable land
Induction of SA-signaling pathway and ethylene biosynthesis in Trichoderma harzianum-treated tomato plants after infection of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita
TLDR
Data presented indicate that Th-colonization primed roots for Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR) against root-knot nematodes and reacted to nematode infection more efficiently than untreated plants.
Investigations of fungal secondary metabolites with potential anticancer activity.
TLDR
The data show that 1 and 5 have similar growth inhibitory activities with respect to those cancer cell lines that display certain levels of resistance to pro-apoptotic stimuli or those that are sensitive to apoptosis.
