An in vitro study on the adsorption, absorption and uptake capacity of Zn by the bioremediator Trichoderma atroviride.
The concentrations of Zn in the sediment of a polluted river at the Serdang Industrial Area were determined. These polluted sediment samples revealed high level of Zn (219. 27 μg/g). Isolation ofExpand
Restriction analysis and sequencing of the ITS regions and 5.8S gene of rDNA of Ganoderma isolates from infected oil palm and coconut stumps in Malaysia
Summary Restriction analysis and sequencing of the ITS regions and 5.8S gene of rDNA were conducted on 53 Ganoderma isolates from infected oil palm and 15 isolates from coconut stumps to determineExpand
Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and Random Amplified Microsatellite (RAMS) of Ganoderma from Infected Oil Palm and Coconut Stumps in Malaysia
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and random amplified microsatellite (RAMS) analyses were used to determine the genetic relatedness within and between Ganoderma boninense isolates fromExpand
Spatial and sequential mapping of the incidence of basal stem rot of oil palms (Elaeis guineensis) on a former coconut (Cocos nucifera) plantation.
The oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) is a very important commercial crop in Malaysia. It was introduced from Africa and was first planted in Peninsular Malaysia in 1917 (Thompson, 1931). The crop hasExpand
Sequence analysis and gene expression of putative oil palm chitinase and chitinase-like proteins in response to colonization of Ganoderma boninense and Trichoderma harzianum
Chitinases are glycosyl hydrolases that cleave the β-1,4-glycosidic linkages between N-acetylglucosamine residues in chitin which is a major component of fungal cell wall. Plant chitinases hydrolyzeExpand
Transcriptome of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) roots treated with Ganoderma boninense
Basal stem rot (BSR) is the most devastating disease of oil palm. In this study, we examined the transcriptional responses of oil palm roots treated with a causal agent of BSR, Ganoderma boninenseExpand
Cloning of transcripts encoding chitinases from Elaeis guineensis Jacq. and their expression profiles in response to fungal infections
Abstract We have cloned three cDNAs encoding chitinases from oil palm, EgCHI1, EgCHI2, and EgCHI3. The abundance of transcripts encoding all three chitinases was relatively higher in oil palm rootExpand
Trichoderma atroviride as a bioremediator of Cu pollution: An in vitro study
Isolated Trichoderma atroviride from Cu-polluted river sediment at the Serdang Industrial Area was studied under in vitro conditions to understand the mechanisms that allowed the fungi to thrive inExpand
Documentation of inherited knowledge on wild edible fungi from Malaysia.
The gradual loss in traditional knowledge on wild edible fungi is a common phenomenon the world over, including Malaysia. A documentation of known edible fungi in Malaysia was executed, with theExpand
Sequence analysis and gene expression of putative exo- and endo-glucanases from oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) during fungal infection.
Glucanases are enzymes that hydrolyze a variety β-d-glucosidic linkages. Plant β-1,3-glucanases are able to degrade fungal cell walls; and promote the release of cell-wall derived fungal elicitors.Expand
