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 ...
Verifying the biocontrol activity of novel film‐forming formulations of Candida sake CPA‐1: resilience in relation to environmental factors, rainfall episodes, and control of Botrytis cinerea on different hosts
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2019-04-13)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of Candida sake CPA‐1 as a biocontrol agent against several diseases has been studied since it was isolated 20 years ago. However, it was only recently that two suitable and effective film‐forming ...
Shelf life improvement of the biocontrol agent Candida sake CPA-1 by suitable package and storage conditions
Agrochemical companies are increasing their interest in the production of biopesticides based on biocontrol agents (BCAs), mainly due to the need to reduce the synthetic fungicide application and the consequent benefits ...
