Eighteen fatty acids identified in the cuticle of three insect species representing differing susceptibilities to C. coronatus infection, were tested for effects on the in vitro growth and pathogenicity of the parasitic fungus. At all applied concentrations (0.1-0.0001% w/v) growth was inhibited by C(16:0), C(16:1), C(18:0), C(18:1), C(18:2), C(18:3), C(20… CONTINUE READING
