Stemphylium lycopersici (Enjoji) W. Yamam was initially described from tomato and has been reported to infect different hosts worldwide. Sequence analyses of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions 1 and 2, including 5.8S rDNA (ITS-5.8S rDNA) and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (gpd) gene, random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and(More)
African oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) is an important oil bearing tree commercially cultivated in Malaysia. Palm oil is an important product for local consumption, provides enormous socio-economic benefits of trade and employment opportunities, and fulfilling the growing global demand for vegetable oils.

The first record of Ganoderma can be traced back to the Pharmacopoeia written by Chinese scientists in first century B.C. Several Ganoderma species are known as “white rot” fungi, which cause the display of the white cellulose on wood by degrading the lignin component. Ganoderma boninense is the main agent of basal stem rot (BSR) disease, as a persistent(More)
EgT2RIP is a type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein isolated from oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.). Its transcript abundance was reported to be up-regulated in oil palm roots upon inoculation of pathogenic fungus Ganoderma boninense in a recent study. This study aims to produce an active recombinant EgT2RIP protein for biological studies. The DNA fragments(More)
