Hydrophobicity and surface electrostatic charge of conidia of the mycoparasitic Trichoderma species

The present investigation was done to understand the fungal-fungal interactions mechanisms based on level of nonspecific adhesion of a potential fungal mycoparasite (Trichoderma) to their fungal host (Macrophomina phaseolina). The relative cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) and cell surface electrostatic charge (CSEC) of 29 isolates of Trichoderma species… CONTINUE READING
