The contribution of Trichoderma to balancing the costs of plant growth and defense.
This review focuses on the complex plant defense signaling network that allows the recognition of fungi as non-hostile microbes, including microbial-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs), damage-associated molecules (DAMPs) and secreted elicitors, and examines how fungal interactions with plant receptors can activate induced resistance by priming and balancing plant defense and growth responses.

Cloning and characterization of the Thcut1 gene encoding a cutinase of Trichoderma harzianum T34
expression of the Thcut1 gene in Pichia pastoris gave rise to transformants with high esterase activity and a high level of secretion of the THCUT1 protein, indicating that P. pastoris transformants could be applied to set up the production of this enzyme at industrial scale. Expand
Specific PCR Assays for the Detection and Quantification of DNA from the Biocontrol Strain Trichoderma harzianum 2413 in Soil
Assays in which total DNA was extracted from sterile and nonsterile soil samples, inoculated with spore or mycelium combinations of Trichoderma spp. Expand
The Combination of Trichoderma harzianum and Chemical Fertilization Leads to the Deregulation of Phytohormone Networking, Preventing the Adaptive Responses of Tomato Plants to Salt Stress
The application of Trichoderma harzianum T34 to tomato seeds had very positive effects on plant growth, independently of chemical fertilization, and the combined application of T34 and salt significantly reduced the fresh and dry weights of NPK-fertilized plants, while the opposite effects were detected when no chemical fertilizations was applied.

Total synthesis of (+)-aspidospermidine: a new strategy for the enantiospecific synthesis of aspidosperma alkaloids.
A new strategy was developed for the enantiospecific synthesis of aspidosperma alkaloids. The key steps involve a novel ketene-lactonization reaction of a chiral vinyl sulfoxide to efficiently set upExpand
Comparative study of Trichoderma gene expression in interactions with tomato plants using high-density oligonucleotide microarrays.
Trichoderma spp. are widely used as biopesticides and biofertilizers to control diseases and to promote positive physiological responses in plants. In vitro and in vivo assays with TrichodermaExpand
Secondary Metabolism and Antimicrobial Metabolites of Trichoderma
Trichoderma SMs play pivotal roles in chemical defense and communication, and some of them have demonstrated important antibiotic abilities in biocontrol applications, and at low concentrations some TrichoderMA SMs have displayed beneficial effects to plants. Expand
Tomato progeny inherit resistance to the nematode Meloidogyne javanica linked to plant growth induced by the biocontrol fungus Trichoderma atroviride
Gene expression results from the defense inductions in the offspring of Ta-primed plants, suggested that an auxin-induced reactive oxygen species production promoted by Ta may act as a major defense strategy during plant growth. Expand
The importance of chorismate mutase in the biocontrol potential of Trichoderma parareesei
Species of Trichoderma exert direct biocontrol activity against soil-borne plant pathogens due to their ability to compete for nutrients and to inhibit or kill their targets through the production ofExpand
Effect of Inorganic N Top Dressing and Trichoderma harzianum Seed-Inoculation on Crop Yield and the Shaping of Root Microbial Communities of Wheat Plants Cultivated Under High Basal N Fertilization
Crop yield was not affected by top dressing and T. harzianum T34, but top dressing significantly increased grain protein and gluten contents, and many genera of plant beneficial bacteria, negatively affected by N top dressing, were increased by the application of T34 alone. Expand
