Production of the phytotoxic compound enniatin has been proposed to play a role during the infection process of plants by enniatin-synthesizing Fusarium species. Enniatins are cyclohexadepsipeptides synthesized by the multifunctional enzyme enniatin synthetase. To test the hypothesis that enniatin contributes to pathogenicity, enniatin-nonproducing mutants… CONTINUE READING
