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. Expand
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. Expand
Sequencing and functional analysis of the genome of a nematode egg-parasitic fungus, Pochonia chlamydosporia.
TLDR
Structural and functional analysis of the P. chlamydosporia genome provides a starting point for understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the multitrophic lifestyle of this fungus and should prove useful for enhancing the capabilities of this fungi as a biocontrol agent of plant-parasitic nematodes and as a plant growth-promoting organism.

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. Expand
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. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi in soils from Alicante province [Spain]
TLDR
The most frequently insect pathogens found werefungi, being Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill (21% soils) the species most abundant and entomopathogenic fungus detected in soils under N. oleander. Expand
Fungal root endophytes from natural vegetation in Mediterranean environments with special reference to Fusarium spp.
TLDR
Fusarium oxysporum, Aspergillus fumigatus and Alternaria chlamydospora contributed most to the differences found between endophytic communities from sandy and saline soils, and host preference was found for three Fusarium species studied. Expand
Pre-penetration events in fungal parasitism of nematode eggs
TLDR
Hydrophobicity, appresorium formation and protease production as factors involved in early parasitism of nematode eggs are shown. Expand
Proteomic analysis of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) responses to endophytic colonization by entomopathogenic fungi
TLDR
It is suggested that endophytic colonization by these entomopathogenic fungi modulates plant defence responses and energy metabolism in field date palms and possibly modulates the expression of cell division‐related proteins in in vitro palms at proteomic level. Expand
Fungal egg-parasites of plant-parasitic nematodes from Spanish soils.
TLDR
The results show that agricultural soils in Spain contain fungal parasites susceptible to be biocontrol agents for plant-parasitic nematodes. Expand
