The antifungal effects of essential oils from Thymus eriocalyx and Thymus x-porlock were studied with special reference to the mechanism of inhibition of Aspergillus niger growth at ultrastructural level. Minimal inhibitory (MIC), minimal fungicidal (MFC) concentrations, and fungicidal kinetics of the oils were determined. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of A. niger exposed to MIC levels of the oils showed irreversible damage to cell wall, cell membrane and cellular organelles. The oils… CONTINUE READING
