  1. Botrytis cinerea isolates collected from grapes present different requirements for conidia germination.

    Mycologia 101(3):287 (2009) PMID 19537202

    Botrytis cinerea presents high variability in several biological traits, which can be explained by the high degree of genotypic diversity among isolates. Because this genetic variability might be related to phenotypic differences the requirements for conidia germination of three natural isolates (G1...
  2. Regulatory aspects of endoglucanase production by the brown-rot fungusGloeophyllum trabeum

    Experimental Mycology 16(4):253 (1992)

    We concluded that endoglucanase production by brown-rot fungi is inducible by cellulose and not subject to catabolite repression. Cellobiose is the most effective inducer of the system....
  3. Differences in the initial events of infection of Botrytis cinerea strains isolated from tomato and grape.

    Mycologia 97(2):485 (2005) PMID 16396356

    Various stages of the infection process among B. cinerea strains isolated from tomatoes or grapes, belonging to different genetic groups, were compared. It was found that strains of B. cinerea isolated from either grapes or tomatoes showed differences in adhesion patterns and in the percentage of ge...
  4. In vitro sensitivity of Botrytis cinerea to anthraquinone and anthrahydroquinone derivatives.

    Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry 53(26):10080 (2005) PMID 16366698

    These results again suggest that the structure of the anthraquinones is important in exerting an antifungal effect on B. cinerea. Furthermore, possible mechanisms of action of compound 4,4-dimethylanthracene-1,9,10(4H)-trione were studied. This compound did not produce lipoperoxidation of membrane a...
  5. Farnesol induces apoptosis-like phenotype in the phytopathogenic fungus Botrytis cinerea.

    Mycologia 105(1):28 (2013) PMID 22962358

    This study demonstrates that the isoprenoid farnesol produces a toxic effect on the phytopathogenic fungus Botrytis cinerea in solid and liquid media. In solid media farnesol retarded 72 h the beginning of mycelial growth. Also, it was demonstrated that the toxic effect is due to farnesol triggers a...
  6. In vitro antifungal activity of the diterpenoid 7 alpha-hydroxy-8(17)-labden-15-oic acid and its derivatives against Botrytis cinerea.

    Molecules 14(6):1966 (2009) PMID 19512998

    We investigated the inhibitory effect of the natural diterpenoids, 7alpha-hydroxy-8(17)-labden-15-oic acid (salvic acid, 1), 7alpha-acetanoyloxy-8(17)-labden-15-oic acid (acetylsalvic acid, 2) and the hemisynthetic diterpenoids 7alpha-acyloxy-8(17)-labden-15-oic acids derivatives, 7alpha-propanoylox...
  7. Characterization of the antifungal activity on Botrytis cinerea of the natural diterpenoids kaurenoic acid and 3beta-hydroxy-kaurenoic acid.

    Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry 52(10):2821 (2004) PMID 15137820

    The antifungal activity on Botrytis cinerea of the diterpenoids 3beta-hydroxy-kaurenoic acid and kaurenoic acid, obtained from the resinous exudates of Pseudognaphalium vira vira, was determined. 3beta-Hydroxy-kaurenoic acid reduced the mycelial growth of B. cinerea in solid and liquid media. Additi...
