Observations suggest that Con7p encodes a transcription factor required for the transcription of several genes which participate in disease‐related morphogenesis in M. grisea.
Secondary metabolites with nematicidal and antimicrobial activity from nematophagous fungi and Ascomycetes
Screening of nematode-trapping fungi for antimicrobial and nematicidal activities gave three new antimicrobial metabolites from cultures of five Arthrobotrys strains, suggesting that the same biosynthetic pathways function in both the teleomorph and anamorph.
Fatty acids and other compounds with nematicidal activity from cultures of Basidiomycetes.
In a screening for nematicidal activities in cultures of Basidiomycetes, cultures of Pleurotus pulmonarius and Hericium coralloides exhibited toxic effects towards the saprophytic nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, with the most active compounds being 1 and 2 with LD50 values between 5 and 10 ppm.
Production of sordarin and related metabolites by the coprophilous fungus Podospora pleiospora in submerged culture and in its natural substrate.
Sordarin-type natural products are synthesized by P. pleiospora at sufficiently high concentrations to account for antibiosis against yeasts, but not against filamentous fungi.
Characterization of the ferrichrome A biosynthetic gene cluster in the homobasidiomycete Omphalotus olearius.
Linoleic acid — The nematicidal principle of several nematophagous fungi and its production in trap-forming submerged cultures
Linoleic acid was shown to be the only detectable nematicidal agent in the mycelial extracts of several predacious fungi of the genus Arthrobotrys, and induction of trap formation by nematodes or phenylalnyl-valine caused a significant increase in its production.
Transformation and mineralization of halophenols by Penicillium simplicissimum SK9117
The metabolism of monohalophenols by Penicillium simplicissimum SK9117, isolated from a sewage plant was investigated and the degradation of all monofluorophenols was enhanced.
White-rots, chlorine and the environment – a tale of many twists
Isolation and characterisation of fungi growing on volatile aromatic hydrocarbons as their sole carbon and energy source
The ability of fungi to grow at low water activities and low pH suggest that they may be used for the purification of gas streams containing aromatic hydrocarbons in air biofilters.

A role of this siderophore in pathogenicity of M. grisea is suggested, suggesting that the gene encodes ferricrocin synthetase, a key step in infection processes, has been considered in several host-pathogen interactions.
