Appressorium-mediated penetration of Magnaporthe oryzae and Colletotrichum orbiculare into surface-cross-linked agar media.


Many phytopathogenic fungi form appressoria on some artificial substances. However, it is difficult to induce appressorium-mediated penetration into artificial substances. In the present study, novel artificial agar media were developed to investigate the in vitro penetration process of phytopathogenic fungi. The media contained sodium carboxymethyl… (More)
