Bacillus subtilis CPA-8, a strain with demonstrated ability to control Monilinia spp. [] Key Result Growth inhibition assays using cell-free supernatants and butanolic extracts showed strong antifungal activities against Monilinia laxa and Monilinia fructicola.

Biocontrol and Action Mechanism of Bacillus subtilis Lipopeptides’ Fengycins Against Alternaria solani in Potato as Assessed by a Transcriptome Analysis

This study increases the transcriptome data resources available and supplies a molecular framework for B. subtilis ZD01 inhibition of A. solani pathogenicity under greenhouse conditions, which may enhance the fengycins ability to alter cell membrane permeability.

The Potential of Novel Bacterial Isolates from Natural Soil for the Control of Brown Rot Disease (Monilinia fructigena) on Apple Fruits

Interestingly, two bacterial isolates, Bacillus amyloliquefaciens B10W10 and Pseudomonas sp.



The iturin and fengycin families of lipopeptides are key factors in antagonism of Bacillus subtilis toward Podosphaera fusca.

The data have allowed us to conclude that the iturin and fengycin families of lipopeptides have a major role in the antagonism of B. subtilis toward P. fusca.

Functions of Lipopeptides Bacillomycin D and Fengycin in Antagonism of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens C06 towards Monilinia fructicola

Results indicated that bacillomycin D and fengycin jointly contributed to the inhibition of conidial germination of M. fructicola, and played a major role in suppressing mycelial growth of the fungal pathogen.

Potential of a new strain of Bacillus subtilis CPA-8 to control the major postharvest diseases of fruit

Experimental evidence suggests that B. subtilis CPA-8 has biocontrol potential for control of postharvest disease on several fruit types, and the ability of the bacteria to colonize injured tissues is shown.

Involvement of fengycin-type lipopeptides in the multifaceted biocontrol potential of Bacillus subtilis

Evidence is provided for the role of secreted lipopeptides, and more particularly of fengycins, in the protective effect afforded by the strain against damping-off of bean seedlings caused by Pythium ultimum and against gray mold of apple in post-harvest disease.

Isolation and evaluation of antagonistic bacteria towards the cucurbit powdery mildew fungus Podosphaera fusca

Results indicate that the bacterial isolates selected are promising candidates for biological control agents of cucurbit powdery mildew in southern Spain.

Biological Control Antimicrobial Activity of Culture Filtrate of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens RC2 Isolated from Mulberry Leaves

The results suggest that the antifungal compounds in the filtrate exhibit a preventive effect on the disease, and isolate microorganisms that inhibit the anthracnose disease as biocontrol agents.

Fengycin--a novel antifungal lipopeptide antibiotic produced by Bacillus subtilis F-29-3.

Fengycin is an antifungal lipopeptide complex produced by Bacillus subtilis strain F-29-3. It inhibits filamentous fungi but is ineffective against yeast and bacteria. The inhibition is antagonized

Biological activities of two fungistatic antibiotics produced by Bacillus cereus UW85

Results demonstrate that B. cereus UW85 produces two fungistatic antibiotics that contribute to suppression of damping-off disease of alfalfa.
