Ectomycorrhizal fungi can produce antifungal compounds in vitro as well as in symbiosis with the host plant that can reduce root diseases. The objective of this study was to isolate antifungal compounds from culture filtrate of Paxillus sp. 60/92, which can form mycorrhizas with Picea glehnii seedlings. Culture filtrate of Paxillus sp. 60/92 showed antifungal activity against Pythium vexans at pH 3–4 but not at pH 5–10, although sterile MMN-b liquid medium (pH 3–10) did not show antifungal… CONTINUE READING
