Colonization of plant roots by egg-parasitic and nematode-trapping fungi.
TLDR
The response of root cells to colonization by nematophagous fungi may have profound implications in the performance of these organisms as biocontrol agents of plant parasitic nematodes.
Purification and characterization of chitinases from the nematophagous fungi Verticillium chlamydosporium and V. suchlasporium.
TLDR
Culture filtrates of the nematophagous fungi Verticillium chlamydosporium and V. suchlasporium growing on colloidal chitin showed increasing chitinolytic activity and production of two main proteins, and a single endochitinase (CHI43) with optimum pH range of 5.2-5.7 was found.
Effect of chitosan on hyphal growth and spore germination of plant pathogenic and biocontrol fungi
TLDR
The objective is to investigate the toxic effect of chitosan on important root pathogenic and biocontrol fungi (nematophagous, entomopathogenic and mycoparasitic) and to establish a database of these fungi and their phytochemical properties.
Endophytic colonization of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) leaves by entomopathogenic fungi.
TLDR
The results show that the entomopathogenic fungi used in this study survived and colonized date palm tissues in bioassays both under laboratory and field experimental conditions with no evidence of significant damage.
Bactericidal and antifungal activities of a low molecular weight chitosan and its N-/2(3)-(dodec-2-enyl)succinoyl/-derivatives
TLDR
The chitosans show high activities against all bacteria, yeast and filamentous fungus and suppressed fungal colony growth and inhibited fungal spore germination at 0.01% (w/v) concentration.
Membrane fluidity determines sensitivity of filamentous fungi to chitosan
TLDR
The findings provide a method to predict the sensitivity of a fungus to chitosan based on its plasma membrane composition, and suggests a new strategy for antifungal therapy, which involves treatments that increase plasma membrane fluidity to make fungi more sensitive to fungicides such as chitOSan.
Visualization and characterization of the extracellular matrix of Bipolaris sorokiniana
TLDR
The strong resemblance between the extending organization of fibrillar thread-like ECM structures and fimbriae suggested that fimbRIae constitute a basic structural component of the ECM and serve as the aggregation centre for the other ECM components.
Nematophagous fungi in the rhizosphere of agricultural crops
TLDR
The most commonly detected species were A. oligospora, Stylopage sp.
Population dynamics of nematophagous fungi and nematodes in an arable soil: vertical and seasonal fluctuations
TLDR
The results indicate that there is a positive correlation between both the parasitic nematode-trapping species as well as the endoparasitic species and nematodes respectively, but not between the more saprophytic nematODE-trapped species and Nematodes.
Real-time PCR quantification and live-cell imaging of endophytic colonization of barley (Hordeum vulgare) roots by Fusarium equiseti and Pochonia chlamydosporia.
TLDR
Monitoring of root colonization by GFP-expressing transformants showed differences in the endophytic behaviours of the two species, and provided evidence of a plant response against endophyte colonization, which strongly supports a balanced antagonism between the virulence of the colonizing endophytes and the plant defence response.
