Papaya Polygalacturonase and its Role in Thermally Injured Ripening Fruit
The polygalacturonase (E.C. 126.96.36.199) (PGase) activity in papayas increased with fruit ripeness. PGase activity was highest in the placenta with the activity decreasing outwardly from the placenta to…
Phenotypic and genetic diversity of Erwinia carotovora ssp. carotovora strains from Asia
A collection of 87 strains of the soft rot pathogen Erwinia carotovora ssp. carotovora (Ecc) isolated from various host plants in Japan, Korea and Thailand was characterized by bacteriological,…
Diversity of Fungal Endophytes from Pinus koraiensis Leaves in Korea
The composition of endophytic fungal species from Pinus koraiensis was studied in two areas (Yeongwol and Jincheon), Korea and Pestalotiopsis sp.
Raffaelea quercus-mongolicae sp. nov. associated with Platypus koryoensis on oak in Korea
PCR‐based identification and characterization of Burkholderia cepacia complex bacteria from clinical and environmental sources
Aims: To study the genotypic identification and characterization of the 119 Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) strains recovered from clinical and environmental sources in Japan and Thailand.
Characterization and differentiation of Erwinia carotovora strains from mulberry trees
It is confirmed that the present type 2 strains from mulberry can be discriminated clearly from other soft rot Erwinia species.
Characterization of Korean Erwinia carotovora Strains from Potato and Chinese Cabbage
Four Erwinia carotovora strains isolated from potatoes showing blackleg symptoms and rotted Chinese cabbage were analysed by biochemical tests and sequence analysis of 16S rDNA and 16S-23S rRNA intergenic spacer (IGS) regions, and the results indicated that Asian Eca strains were distinct from European Eca strain, although they were phenotycally homogeneous.
Endophytic Trichoderma citrinoviride isolated from mountain-cultivated ginseng (Panax ginseng) has great potential as a biocontrol agent against ginseng pathogens
First Report of Powdery Mildew Caused by Erysiphe quercicola on Quercus robur in Korea
Production of Thaxtomin A by Korean Isolates of Streptomyces turgidiscabies and Their Involvement in Pathogenicity
Inoculation of potato tuber slices with thaxtomin A partially purified from crude extract of a pathogenic S. turgidiscabies ST5 reproduce necrotic reaction suggesting that thaxtomination A is a pathogenicity determinant in S.TurgidISCabies.
