Modes of Action of Microbially-Produced Phytotoxins

  title={Modes of Action of Microbially-Produced Phytotoxins},
  author={Stephen O Duke and Franck E Dayan},
Some of the most potent phytotoxins are synthesized by microbes. A few of these share molecular target sites with some synthetic herbicides, but many microbial toxins have unique target sites with potential for exploitation by the herbicide industry. Compounds from both non-pathogenic and pathogenic microbes are discussed. Microbial phytotoxins with modes of action the same as those of commercial herbicides and those with novel modes of action of action are covered. Examples of the compounds… CONTINUE READING
