Lipopeptides, a novel protein, and volatile compounds contribute to the antifungal activity of the biocontrol agent Bacillus atrophaeus CAB-1


Bacillus atrophaeus CAB-1 displays a high inhibitory activity against various fungal pathogens and suppresses cucumber powdery mildew and tomato gray mold. We extracted and identified lipopeptides and secreted proteins and volatile compounds produced by strain CAB-1 to investigate the mechanisms involved in its biocontrol performance. In vitro assays… (More)
