A Phenome-Based Functional Analysis of Transcription Factors in the Cereal Head Blight Fungus, Fusarium graminearum
Fusarium graminearum is an important plant pathogen that causes head blight of major cereal crops. The fungus produces mycotoxins that are harmful to animal and human. In this study, a systematicExpand
Antifungal activity against plant pathogenic fungi of chaetoviridins isolated from Chaetomium globosum.
The Chaetomium globosum strain F0142, which was isolated from barnyard grass, showed potent disease control efficacy against rice blast (Magnaporthe grisea) and wheat leaf rust (Puccinia recondita).Expand
Screening for novel lipolytic enzymes from uncultured soil microorganisms
The construction and screening of metagenomic libraries constitute a valuable resource for obtaining novel biocatalysts. In this work, we present the construction of a metagenomic library inExpand
Bikaverin and fusaric acid from Fusarium oxysporum show antioomycete activity against Phytophthora infestans
Aims:  To isolate and identify antioomycete substances from Fusarium oxysporum EF119 against Phytophthora infestans and to investigate their antimicrobial activities against various plant pathogenicExpand
Production of l-lactic acid from a green microalga, Hydrodictyon reticulum, by Lactobacillus paracasei LA104 isolated from the traditional Korean food, makgeolli.
The freshwater microalga, Hydrodictyon reticulum, that contained 47.5% reducing sugars including 35% glucose was used as substrate for the production of l-lactic acid (LA) by LA-producing bacteria.Expand
WetA Is Required for Conidiogenesis and Conidium Maturation in the Ascomycete Fungus Fusarium graminearum
ABSTRACT Fusarium graminearum, a prominent fungal pathogen that infects major cereal crops, primarily utilizes asexual spores to spread disease. To understand the molecular mechanisms underlyingExpand
Peroxisome function is required for virulence and survival of Fusarium graminearum.
Peroxisomes are organelles that are involved in a number of important cellular metabolic processes, including the β-oxidation of fatty acids, biosynthesis of secondary metabolites, and detoxificationExpand
Draft Genome Sequence of Fusarium fujikuroi B14, the Causal Agent of the Bakanae Disease of Rice
ABSTRACT Here, we present the genome sequence of a Korean strain (B14) of Fusarium fujikuroi, a fungal rice pathogen. The final assembly consists of 455 contigs with 43,810,516 bp and 14,017Expand
Activity of some aminoglycoside antibiotics against true fungi, Phytophthora and Pythium species
Aims:  To investigate the in vitro antifungal and antioomycete activities of some aminoglycosides against true fungi and Phytophthora and Pythium species and to evaluate the potential of theExpand
Genotyping-by-sequencing map permits identification of clubroot resistance QTLs and revision of the reference genome assembly in cabbage (Brassica oleracea L.)
Clubroot is a devastating disease caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae and results in severe losses of yield and quality in Brassica crops. Many clubroot resistance genes and markers are available inExpand
