The alkaloids solanine and tomatine and the polyene antibiotic nystatin were tested in vitro against the entomopathogenic fungusBeauveria bassiana. Nystatin was the most inhibitory compound tested, reducing colony formation, growth, and development of conidiaphores to a greater degree and at lower concentrations than the alkaloids. Tomatine inhibited colony formation and growth more than solanine, which had relatively little effect on the fungus. The toxicity of tomatine suggests that… CONTINUE READING
