Environmental fate and behaviour of the biocontrol agent Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CPA-8 after preharvest application to stone fruit
(Pest Management Science, 2017-09-30)
BACKGROUND:Bacillus amyloliquefaciensstrain CPA-8 has been described as an effective biocontrol agent to control brownrot in stone fruit for both preharvest and postharvest applications. However, no information about the ...
Dry formulations of the biocontrol agent Candida sakeCPA‐1 using fluidised bed drying to control the main postharvest diseases on fruits
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2017-01-23)
BACKGROUND: The biocontrol agentCandida sakeCPA-1 is effective against several diseases. Consequently, the optimisationof a dry formulation ofC. saketo improve its shelf life and manipulability is essential for increasing ...
Unravelling the contribution of the Penicillium expansum PeSte12 transcription factor to virulence during apple fruit infection
(Food Microbiology, 2017-08-12)
Genome Sequence of the Brown Rot Fungal Pathogen Monilinia laxa
(Genome Announcements, 2018-04-26)
Monilinia laxa (phylum Ascomycota) is a plant pathogen responsible for the brown rot blossom blight disease in stone fruit trees of the Rosaceae family, such as apricots. We report here the genome sequence of strain 8L ...
Differential contribution of the two major polygalacturonases from Penicillium digitatum to virulence towards citrus fruit
(International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2018-05-31)
The fungus Penicillium digitatum is the causal agent of the citrus green mould, the major postharvest diseases of citrus fruit. Lesions on the surface of infected fruits first appear as soft areas around the inoculation ...
Novel film‐forming formulations of the biocontrol agent Candida sake CPA‐1: biocontrol efficacy and performance at field conditions in organic wine grapes
(Pest Management Science, 2018-09-07)
BACKGROUND: The biocontrol agent (BCA)Candida sakeCPA-1 has previously effectively reducedBotrytisbunch rot (BBR) andit was also suggested as a promising strategy to control sour rot in grapes under field conditions. ...
Double-sided battle: The role of ethylene during Monilinia spp. infection in peach at different phenological stages
(Plant Physiology and Biochemistry, 2019-10-02)
Controversy exists on whether ethylene is involved in determining fruit resistance or susceptibility against biotic stress. In this work, the hypothesis that ethylene biosynthesis in peaches at different phenological stages ...
Labeling of Monilinia fructicola with GFP and Its Validation for Studies on Host-Pathogen Interactions in Stone and Pome Fruit
To compare in vivo the infection process of Monilinia fructicola on nectarines and apples using confocal microscopy it is necessary to transform a pathogenic strain with a construct expressing a fluorescent chromophore ...
Spatial distribution of flavor components and antioxidants in the flesh of ‘Conference’ pears and its relationship with postharvest pathogens susceptibility
(Postharvest Biology and Technology, 2019-09-13)
The spatial distribution of dry matter, ethylene production, respiration rate, organic acids, sugars, antioxidants, volatiles and fungal (Penicillium expansum and Rhizopus stolonifer) growth was evaluated analyzing four ...
Exploring sources of resistance to brown rot in an interspecific almond × peach population
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2019-02-19)
BACKGROUND: Monilinia spp. are responsible for brown rot, one of the most significant stone fruit diseases. Planting resistant cultivars seems a promising alternative, although most commercial cultivars are susceptible to ...
