Cross infection of Colletotrichum species; a case study with tropical fruits

  title={Cross infection of Colletotrichum species; a case study with tropical fruits},
  author={Sittisack Phoulivong},
Strains of Colletotrichum were isolated from the fruits of chili, coffee, longan, mango, papaya and rose apple, collected from orchards and markets in Laos and Thailand. Isolates were identified using morphological characters, colony growth rate, and confirmed with DNA sequence data analysis of combined multi-gene loci. Pathogenicity testing of ten strains representing five species of Colletotrichum was carried out on Capsicum sp. (chili), Carica papaya (papaya), Citrus reticulata (orange…

High species diversity in Colletotrichum associated with citrus diseases in Europe

This study represents the first report of C. acutatum on citrus in Europe, and the first detection of novae-zelandiae from outside New Zealand.

Identification and pathogenicity assessment of Colletotrichum isolates causing bitter rot of apple fruit in Belgium

Molecular identification appears to outperform morphological analysis and was in this study the most ideal tool for identifying unknown isolates of Colletotrichum species.

Cross-Infectivity of Colletotrichum Isolates, Causal Agent of Anthracnose on Fruits in Three Regions of Cameroon

Test of the ability of the pathogen isolates from five fruits to cause disease by cross-infectivity between fruits crops showed that lesion areas induced by different Colletotrichum isolate, varied with the fruit, the isolate as well as the origin of the isolates.

Diversity and pathogenicity of Colletotrichum species isolated from soursop in Colombia

Significant differences in anthracnose severity were observed between Colletotrichum species when tested for pathogenicity on attached twigs of soursop cv.

Cross-pathogenicity of Colletotrichum isolates on tropical fruit species in Brazil

The rDNA ITS was used for molecular identification of fungal isolates from five tropical fruits at the post-harvesting stage and showed that most isolates are host-specific, passion fruit being the ideal host for all the discriminated isolates.

What are the common anthracnose pathogens of tropical fruits?

A new species, Colletotrichum syzygicola, associated with Syzygium samarangense in Thailand, is introduced with descriptions and illustrations and was the dominant group of species among most wild fruits studied.

Cross inoculation of anthracnose pathogens infecting various tropical fruits

Anthracnose disease is very important disease of tropical fruits causing significant yield losses. The disease is caused by Colletotrichum spp. and infects almost all tropical fruit species,

Colletotrichum species associated with mango in southern China

The diversity of Colletotrichum species infecting mango cultivars in major growing areas in China was examined using morphological and molecular techniques together with pathogenicity tests on detached leaves and fruits, showing that the most common fungal isolates associated with mango in southern China involved 13 species.

Identification and characterization of Colletotrichum species associated with mango anthracnose in Taiwan

The identification and pathogenicity of Colletotrichum species related to mango anthracnose in Taiwan are reported, and all five species showed pathogenic on fruit, and C. siamense isolates C-526 and C-848 caused significantly larger lesions on leaves than other isolates.



Identification and Characterization of Colletotrichum spp. affecting Fruit after Harvest in Brazil

The morphological, cultural and molecular studies indicated that the avocado, papaya, mango and passion fruit isolates were C. acutatum, which had not been found previously to produce anthracnose symptoms on guava in Brazil, but it was not pathogenic to banana.

Characterization and pathogenicity of Colletotrichum species associated with anthracnose on chilli (Capsicum spp.) in Thailand

Pathogenicity tests validated that all three species isolated from chilli were causal agents for chilli anthracnose when inoculated onto fruits of the susceptible Thai elite cultivar Capsicum annuum cv.

RAPD analysis of Colletotrichum species causing chilli anthracnose disease in Thailand

RAPD analysis in this study showed a clear difference between C. gloeosporioides and C. capsici, and isolates of these species were more closely related than C.gloeosporaides isolates.

Morphological, Pathological and Molecular Variability in Colletotrichum capsici, the Cause of Fruit Rot of Chillies in the Subtropical Region of North-western India

The reaction of the 37 isolates on an indigenously developed differential set of Capsicum cultivars indicated the existence of different virulences in Himachal Pradesh chilli populations, and molecular polymorphism generated by RAPD confirmed the variation in virulence of C. capsici.

Characterization of colletotrichum isolates from tamarillo, passiflora, and mango in Colombia and identification of a unique species from the genus.

Molecular analyses of the population of Colletotrichum isolates from passiflora, Tom-6 from tamarillo, and Man-76 from mango indicate that this population may not be host specific, and sequence analysis of the complete ITS identified certain isolates to their respective species.

Phylogenetic relationships and pathogenicity of Colletotrichum acutatum isolates from grape in subtropical Australia

In vitro infection studies showed that Australian C. acutatum isolates from almond, blueberry, chilli, grape, mango, olive, strawberry and tomato were able to infect grape and could also infect blueberry and strawberry, indicating a lack of host specificity.

Characterization of Colletotrichum Species Responsible for Anthracnose Diseases of Various Fruits.

Methods used to identify and characterize Colletotrichum species and genotypes from almond, avocado, and strawberry, as examples are dealt with, using traditional and molecular tools.

Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is not a common pathogen on tropical fruits

Contrary to previous understanding, none of the 25 Colletotrichum isolates from tropical fruits was C. gloeosporioides, which will have significant impacts on many aspects of plant pathology, pathogen diagnosis, quarantine decisions, plant breeding, and plant disease management and control.

Genotypic and phenotypic diversity in Colletotrichum acutatum, a cosmopolitan pathogen causing anthracnose on a wide range of hosts.

This article mainly focuses on the global population diversity in C. acutatum, pathogen epidemiology and diagnosis, host colonization processes, and the development of tools for the identification and analysis of genes associated with pathogenicity.

Novel Species of Colletotrichum Revealed by Morphology and Molecular Analysis

Three new species associated with leaf anthracnose isolated from various plants in Thailand are introduced as C. brevisporum, C. tropicicola and C. thailandicum and formally described, illustrated and compared with similar taxa.
