Twenty years of postharvest biocontrol research: Is it time for a new paradigm?
The use of biocontrol agents as an alternative to synthetic, chemical fungicides that are presently used to control postharvest pathogens, has many constraints and obstacles that make it difficult toExpand

Purification, immunolocalization, cryoprotective, and antifreeze activity of PCA60: A dehydrin from peach (Prunus persica)
Dehydrins are glycine-rich, hydrophilic, heat-stable proteins and are generally induced in response to a wide array of environmental stresses. In previous research (Artlip et al. 1997, PlantExpand

Control of postharvest decay of apple fruit by Aureobasidium pullulans and induction of defense responses
The biocontrol activity of Aureobasidium pullulans on decay of apple fruit caused by Botrytis cinerea and Penicillium expansum, and its ability to induce biochemical defense responses in appleExpand

Genome, Transcriptome, and Functional Analyses of Penicillium expansum Provide New Insights Into Secondary Metabolism and Pathogenicity.
The relationship between secondary metabolism and infection in pathogenic fungi has remained largely elusive. The genus Penicillium comprises a group of plant pathogens with varying hostExpand

Ectopic expression of a novel peach (Prunus persica) CBF transcription factor in apple (Malus × domestica) results in short-day induced dormancy and increased cold hardiness
Low, non-freezing temperatures and/or short daylength (SD) regulates cold acclimation and dormancy in fruit trees. Regarding cold acclimation, C-repeat binding factor (CBF/DREB) transcriptionalExpand

Review: Utilization of antagonistic yeasts to manage postharvest fungal diseases of fruit.
Significant losses in harvested fruit can be directly attributable to decay fungi. Some of these pathogenic fungi are also the source of mycotoxins that are harmful to humans. Biological control ofExpand

Role of citrus volatiles in host recognition, germination and growth of Penicillium digitatum and Penicillium italicum
Volatiles emitted from wounded peel tissue of various citrus cultivars had a pronounced stimulatory effect on germination and germ tube elongation of both Penicillium digitatum and P. italicum;Expand

Understanding plant cold hardiness: an opinion.
How plants adapt to freezing temperatures and acclimate to survive the formation of ice within their tissues has been a subject of study for botanists and plant scientists since the latter part ofExpand

Characterization of the biocontrol activity of Debaryomyces hansenii in the control of Penicillium digitatum on grapefruit
Interactions between Debaryomyces hansenii and Penicillium digitatum were studied in culture and on fruit to better characterize the observed biological control of green mold on grapefruit by theExpand

Control of Postharvest Decay of Apple Fruit with Candida saitoana and Induction of Defense Responses.
ABSTRACT The ability of Candida saitoana to induce systemic resistance in apple fruit against Botrytis cinerea was investigated. To separate the antagonistic activity of C. saitoana from its abilityExpand
