Antimicrobial activities of endophytic fungal isolates from medicinal herb Orthosiphon stamineus Benth
Significant improvements in the antimicrobial activity of the crude extract and volatile fungal metabolites were observed after addition of water extract of the host plant in the culture medium.
Restriction analysis and sequencing of the ITS regions and 5.8S gene of rDNA of Ganoderma isolates from infected oil palm and coconut stumps in Malaysia
The Ganoderma isolates from infected oil palm and coconut stumps were indistinguishable and closely related which suggests that the Coconut stumps in oil palm plantings may have an important role in disease development.
Morphological and molecular characterization of Fusarium. solani and F. oxysporum associated with crown disease of oil palm
The results of the present study indicated that F. solani and F. oxysporum associated with CD of oil palm in Malaysia and Indonesia were highly variable.
Characterization and pathogenicity of Fusarium proliferatum causing stem rot of Hylocereus polyrhizus in Malaysia
Fusarium isolates produced rot symptoms similar to those observed in the fields which confirmed the isolates as the causal agent of stem rot of H. polyrhizus caused by F. proliferatum in Malaysia.
SHORT COMMUNICATION Diversity of Fusarium species in cultivated soils in Penang
The present study showed that Fusarium populations are diverse within cultivated soils and could be potential inoculum to infect certain agriculture crops.
Fusarium species isolated from peat soil of Pondok Tanjung and Sungai Beriah, Perak
Isolates of Fusarium from peat soil samples were recovered using three methods namely, soil dilution, direct isolation and debris isolation techniques. Based on identification using morphological
Genetic diversity of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense isolates from Malaysia.
The highly variable banding patterns shown by using molecular methods supported the hypothesis that the isolates of FOC co-evolved with the edible bananas and dissemination of the pathogen was probably through infected rhizomes.
Occurrence and Pathogenicity of Fusarium spp. on the potato tubers in Malaysia
The present study showed that two morphotypes of F. solani were associated with tuber rot of potato in Malaysia, the first comprehensive report on identity and distribution of major pathogenic fungi causing potato dry rot in Malaysia.
Phenotypic and molecular characterization of Colletotrichum species associated with anthracnose of banana (Musa spp) in Malaysia.
In a phylogenetic analysis of the combined dataset of ITS regions and β-tubulin using a maximum likelihood method, it is concluded that C. gloeosporioides and C. musae isolates are associated with anthracnose in the local banana cultivars and thatC.gloeosporaides is more prevalent than C.musae.
