Species and ecological diversity within the Cladosporium cladosporioides complex (Davidiellaceae, Capnodiales)
The most important phenotypic characters for distinguishing species within the C. cladosporioides complex, which represents a monophyletic subclade within the genus, are shape, width, length, septation and surface ornamentation of conidia and conidiophores; length and branching patterns of conidial chains and hyphal shape and arrangement.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of Cladosporium-like hyphomycetes, including Davidiella gen. nov., the teleomorph of Cladosporium s. str.
Cladosporium malorum proved to provide the correct epithet for Pseudocladosporium kellermanianum and C. malorum is allocated to Alternaria based on differences in conidiogenesis and the structure of the conidiogenous loci, further supported by molecular data.
First report of Fusarium proliferatum causing rot of garlic bulbs in North America
Softened cloves displayed water-soaked, tan lesions, often with white mycelium near the bulb axis, in a cultivar commercially grown in Idaho and purchased at a retail outlet in July 2002.
Baseline Sensitivity of Ascochyta rabiei to Azoxystrobin, Pyraclostrobin, and Boscalid.
Five of nine A. rabiei isolates tested had significantly higher EC50 values when SHAM was not included in media amended with azoxystrobin, indicating that A.rabiei has the potential to use alternative respiration to overcome fungicide toxicity in vitro.
Pathogenic Fungi in Garlic Seed Cloves from the United States and China, and Efficacy of Fungicides Against Pathogens in Garlic Germplasm in Washington State
Using fludioxonil, thiophanate methyl and/or benomyl at label rates against E. allii and Fusarium species promoted plant health, but not when infections were located deep within tissues nor under some situations involving high disease pressure.
Didymella pisi sp. nov., the teleomorph of Ascochyta pisi.
Using morphological and molecular characters, the teleomorphic state of this fungus is placed within the genus Didymella as D. pisi and a heterothallic mating system is described using a PCR-based mating type assay and in vitro crosses.
Etiology of preharvest colonization of bing cherry fruit by fungi
During 1991-1993, the colonization of cherry fruit (Prunus avium «Bing») by Alternaria spp., Aureobasidium pullulans, Cladosporium spp., and other fungi was detected soon after petal fall and
Benzyl derivatives with in vitro binding affinity for human opioid and cannabinoid receptors from the fungus Eurotium repens.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the fungus Eurotium repens resulted in the isolation of two new benzyl derivatives, which showed good binding affinity for human opioid or cannabinoid receptors.
Antimicrobial and antiprotozoal activities of secondary metabolites from the fungus Eurotium repens
Preliminary structure and activity relationship studies indicated that antibacterial, antifungal, antimalarial, and antileishmanial activities associated with phenol derivates seem to be dependent on the number of double bonds in the side chain, which would be important for lead optimization in the future.
