Mango malformation is an economically important disease of Mangifera indica globally. A recent DNA-based study indicated that two distinct, phylogenetic lineages previously identified as Fusarium subglutinans are associated with this disease in South Africa. The objective of this study was to characterize Fusarium isolates associated with mango malformation, including the two different F. subglutinans groups, based on morphological characteristics. For this purpose we examined Fusarium strains…

Identification and characterization of Fusarium mangiferae as pathogen of mango malformation in India

It is concluded that exploiting the nested PCR coupled with PCR-RFLP will help in rapid and accurate detection of F. mangiferae pathogen of mango malformation.

Review of Fusarium species isolated in association with mango malformation in Australia

The status of all species of Fusarium isolated from mango tissue associated with putative malformation symptoms in Australia since 2007 are reviewed, documenting location origins and diagnostic methods and re-assessing their identification based on phylogenetic analysis of available DNA sequences.


Six fungi were isolated from primary and secondary tissues of malformed parts of the inflorescence of mango varieties, isolated predominantly from the diseased samples collected from Mirpurkhas, Hyderabad, Tando Allah Yar and Sanghar districts, finding F. nivale was isolated with highest frequency.

Identification and characterization of a novel etiological agent of mango malformation disease in Mexico, Fusarium mexicanum sp. nov.

Molecular phylogenetic analyses indicate that a novel genealogically exclusive lineage within the American clade was the predominant MMD associate in Mexico and could be distinguished from all other known species morphologically by the production of mostly sterile, coiled hyphae which are typically associated with sporodochial conidiophores.

Cytology of infection of Fusarium mangiferae Britz in different malformed reproductive parts of mango

The present studies explored the sites hosting the causal fungus in mango and provide convincing evidence that F. mangiferae is responsible for turning healthy tissues into the malformed condition, suggesting that inoculum specific management strategies are needed in future to curb malformation disease in mango orchards.

A new Fusarium lineage within the Gibberella fujikuroi species complex is the main causal agent of mango malformation disease in Brazil

The new phylogenetic lineage identified in this study, together with F. mangiferae and F. sterilihyphosum, are the only known taxa of Fusarium proven to be capable of causing mango malformation.



New Fusarium species and combinations within the Gibberella fujikuroi species complex

Ten Fusarium species within the Gibberella fujikuroi complex are described and illustrated as new species: F. acutatum ex Triticum sp. (wheat) and Cajanus sp.,F. begoniae ex Begonia elatior hybrid,...

Use of GUS Transformants of Fusarium subglutinans for Determining Etiology of Mango Malformation Disease.

The presence of GUS-stained mycelium of the pathogen viewed microscopically within infected plant organs provided unequivocal evidence that F. subglutinans is indeed a causal agent of mango malformation disease.

Gibberella fujikuroi: available populations and variable traits

Gibberella fujikuroi is a complex species comprised of at least seven distinct mating populations (biological species) with Fusarium anamorphs, and this polygenic trait has been used to study the structure of some populations of these fungi.

How should the infertility of interspecies crosses be designated

Infertility is widely used in fungi as a cri? terion for distinguishing sibling species and mating populations. Whether a cross is called fertile or sterile may depend on the frame of reference. The
