A review of current knowledge of resistance aspects for the next-generation succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor fungicides.

The Fungicide Resistance Action Committee has developed resistance management recommendations for pathogens of different crops in order to reduce the risk for resistance development to this class of fungicides.

Molecular Mechanism of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum Resistance to Succinate Dehydrogenase Inhibitor Fungicides.

SDHC was genetically evolved into two isotypes SDHC1 and SDHC2 but not involved in the sensitivity to SDHI fungicides, and the P226L substitution in SDHB resulted in the resistance of S. sclerotiorum to SD HI fungicides but suffered from fitness penalty.

Risk assessment studies on succinate dehydrogenase inhibitors, the new weapons in the battle to control Septoria leaf blotch in wheat.

Assessment of the risk of resistance development to different Sdh inhibitor (SDHI) fungicides in M. graminicola found a range of SDHI resistance-conferring mutations was found in Sdh subunits B, C and D, and the predictive power of the model was shown.

The selective antifungal activity of Drosophila melanogaster metchnikowin reflects the species-dependent inhibition of succinate–coenzyme Q reductase

The mechanism responsible for the selective antifungal activity of Mtk is investigated by using the peptide to probe a yeast two-hybrid library of F. graminearum cDNAs and it is found that Mtk specifically targets the iron-sulfur subunit (SdhB) of succinate–coenzyme Q reductase (SQR).

A new point mutation in the iron-sulfur subunit of succinate dehydrogenase confers resistance to boscalid in Sclerotinia sclerotiorum.

The results suggest that resistance based on non-conserved vs. conserved protein domains differs in mechanism, and will be useful for the development of alternative antifungal drugs.

Impact of Five Succinate Dehydrogenase Inhibitors on DON Biosynthesis of Fusarium asiaticum, Causing Fusarium Head Blight in Wheat

It is concluded that SDHIs may decrease DON biosynthesis of F. asiaticum by inhibiting glycolysis and the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle and will provide important references for managing Fusarium head blight (FHB) caused by FGSC and reducing DON contaminated wheat grains.

Screening and characterization of resistance to succinate dehydrogenase inhibitors in Alternaria solani

Sequence analysis of the SDH complex revealed mutations in the subunits B and D that were correlated with the emergence of boscalid resistance in potato fields in Idaho, which allowed the development of a rapid PCR-RFLP method to assess bosCalid sensitivity in A. solani populations.

Molecular characterisation and detection of resistance to succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor fungicides in Botryotinia fuckeliana (Botrytis cinerea).

Fluopyram-resistant mutants are currently rarely detected in the field sprayed with boscalid, but this may change with intensive exposure of the fungal population to fluopyram.

Mutations in target genes of succinate dehydrogenase inhibitors and demethylation inhibitors in Ramularia collo-cygni in Europe

The frequency of SDHI- and DMI-adapted isolates in a European population of R. collo-cygni is investigated and the underlying resistance mechanisms towards both fungicide classes are evaluated.



Mode of Action of Oxathiin Systemic Fungicides V. Effect on Electron Transport System of Ustilago maydis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Carboxin was inhibitory to succinic dehydrogenase assayed with phenazine methosulfate plus DCIP when intact mitochondria were used as the enzyme source but not when solubilized enzyme was used; the main site of action of carboxin appears to lie between succinate and coenzyme Q.

Characterization of mutations in the iron-sulphur subunit of succinate dehydrogenase correlating with Boscalid resistance in Alternaria alternata from California pistachio.

To determine the genetic basis of boscalid resistance in A. alternata the entire iron sulphur gene (AaSdhB) was isolated from a fungicide-sensitive isolate and a highly conserved histidine residue was converted to either tyrosine or arginine, involved in carboxamide resistance.

Characterization of mutations in the membrane-anchored subunits AaSDHC and AaSDHD of succinate dehydrogenase from Alternaria alternata isolates conferring field resistance to the fungicide boscalid

Tests revealed that mycelial growth of boscalid-resistant isolates was reduced when isolates were subjected to oxidative stress, and the identified mutations were confirmed using PCR-RFLP assays.

Recent Topics on Action Mechanisms of Fungicides

Management strategies for fungicide resistance may become a part of registration requirements worldwide because of a growing interest in non-fungicidal disease-controlling agents since they are supposedly specific to target organisms and less likely to cause resistance.

Flutolanil and carboxin resistance in Coprinus cinereus conferred by a mutation in the cytochrome b560 subunit of succinate dehydrogenase complex (Complex II)

A gene that confers resistance to the systemic fungicide flutolanil was isolated from a mutant strain of the basidiomycete Coprinus cinereus, and this is the first demonstration that a mutation in sdhC can also confer resistance.

A study on the molecular mechanism of resistance to amicarthiazol in Xanthomonas campestris pv. citri.

An amino acid mutation (His229--> Leu229) in sdhB was found to confer resistance of X. campestris pv.

Carboxin resistance in Paracoccus denitrificans conferred by a mutation in the membrane-anchor domain of succinate:quinone reductase (complex II)

The P. denitrificans SdhD polypeptide, identified in this study to confer resistance to carboxin but not to thenoyltrifluoroacetone, is in a predicted cytoplasmic loop connecting two transmembrane segments, likely in the neighborhood of the [3Fe-4S] cluster.

The Carboxin-Binding Site on Paracoccus denitrificans Succinate:Quinone Reductase Identified by Mutations

The combined mutant data and structural information derived from Escherichia coli and Wolinella succinogenes quinol:fumarate reductase suggest that carboxin acts by blocking binding of ubiquinone to the active site.

Ubiquinone-binding Site Mutations in the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Succinate Dehydrogenase Generate Superoxide and Lead to the Accumulation of Succinate*

It is suggested that SDH mutations can promote tumor formation by contributing to both reactive oxygen species production and to a proliferative response normally induced by hypoxia via the accumulation of succinate.

A single amino-acid substitution in the iron-sulphur protein subunit of succinate dehydrogenase determines resistance to carboxin in Mycosphaerella graminicola

An Ip gene containing the His → Tyr mutation was constructed and shown to confer CbX resistance following co-transformation into the Cbx-sensitive wild-type strain, confirming that the mutation identified by sequence analysis was responsible for determining Cbz resistance.
