  1. Laboratory evaluation of entomopathogenic fungi Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae against puparia and adults of Ceratitis capita...

    Journal of Economic Entomology 99(6):1955 (2006) PMID 17195660

    Laboratory experiments were done to measure the pathogenicity of 10 autochthonous isolates of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuill. and of five Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) Sorok. toward puparia and adults of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae). Altho...
  2. [In vitro patogenicity of the fungi Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff, 1879) Sorokin, 1883, on the tick Boophilus microplus (Canestrini,1...

    Revista Brasileira de Parasitologia Veterinária 15(4):157 (2006) PMID 17196119

    The cattle tick Boophilus microplus is a serious concern to the Brazilian cattle industry. It causes decreased meat and milk production, low alimentary conversion, damage to leather and transmission of pathogens. The use of entomopathogenic fungi as biological control agents for ticks has shown prom...
  3. Field applications of entomopathogenic fungi Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae F52 (Hypocreales: Clavicipitaceae) for the contro...

    Journal of Medical Entomology 47(6):1107 (2010) PMID 21175060

    These results suggest the application of entomopathogenic fungi could provide another approach for the control of I. scapularis nymphs in residential or similar landscapes....
  4. [The effect of entomopathogenic fungi on the activity of detoxicating enzymes of larvae of bee pyralid Galleria mellonella L. (Lepidoptera, ...

    Izvestiia Akademii nauk. Seriia biologicheskaia... (6):712 (2006) PMID 17168468

    In the work it was shown that fungal infection of insects increased the total esterase and glutathione-S-transferase activities of hemolymph. Acid and alkaline phosphatase activity in infected larvae remained at the same level as in intact larvae. Fungi-infected bee pyralid larvae turned out to be 1...
  5. Nutritional requirements of mycelial growth and sporulation of several biocontrol fungi in submerged and on solid culture.

    Mikrobiologiia 79(5):622 (2010) PMID 21090505

    To develop fungal biopesticides, the nutritional requirements on available culture media that maximize mycelia and spore yields at low cost are essential for their mass-production. The objective of present study was to find the optimal combinations for the most mycelia yield in submerged and the hig...
  6. Serinocyclins A and B, cyclic heptapeptides from Metarhizium anisopliae.

    Journal of Natural Products 70(12):1919 (2007) PMID 18044842

    Two new cyclic heptapeptides, serinocyclins A (1) and B (2), were isolated from conidia of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae. Structures were elucidated by a combination of mass spectrometric, NMR, and X-ray diffraction techniques. Serinocyclin A (1) contains three serine units, a h...
  7. [Selectivity of Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae to Trichogramma pretiosum Riley (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae)].

    Neotropical entomology 38(6):822 (2009) PMID 20098929

    We investigated if these entomopathogens could have any side-effects on T. pretiosum. Therefore, 1 x 8 cards containing sterilized eggs of Anagasta kuehniella (Zeller) that were sprayed with 0.2 ml of B. bassiana or M. anisopliae (1.0 x 10(9) conidia/ml) were offered to a T. pretiosum female for 24h...
  8. Antioxidants enhanced production of destruxin E from cultivation of Metarhizium anisopliae.

    Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology 73(3):519 (2006) PMID 16820952

    The effect of antioxidants on the production of an important cyclohexadepsipeptide congener destruxin E (dtx E) was investigated using the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae F061. In shaker flask cultivations, 0.015% of menadione-enhanced dtx E production of 220.4 mg/l compared to the co...
  9. Development of a simple and rapid Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation system for the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium aniso...

    Letters in Applied Microbiology 44(3):248 (2007) PMID 17309500

    In our study, we report that A. tumefaciens strain AGL-1 attaches to and genetically transforms the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae var. acridum. SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY: We report for the first time, the attachment of Agrobacterium to fungal cells opening new avenues for...
  10. [Evaluation of cellular response in engorged females of Boophilus microplus (Canestrini, 1887) inoculated with Metarhizium anisopliae, Beauv...

    Revista Brasileira de Parasitologia Veterinária 15(4):151 (2006) PMID 17196118

    The effect of Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae, Penicillium corylophilum or Fusarium oxysporum on the dynamic of hemocytes presented in the haemolymph of engorged females of Boophilus microplus was studied. The inoculation was carried out with conidia suspension of different fungi in the c...
