Anatomical context of Pest Control, Biological

  • Terpene compounds are involved in the biocontrol process due to their antifungal properties (e.g., ergokonins and viridins) but additionally their structural function in the cell membranes (ergosterol) is essential [20].

Associations of Pest Control, Biological with chemical compounds

  • Cross talk between 2,4-diacetylphloroglucinol-producing biocontrol pseudomonads on wheat roots [21].
  • To determine the role of the amide group in biocontrol, the PCN biosynthetic genes of strain PCL1391 were identified and characterized [17].
  • The biocontrol effect in a model grain silo with moist wheat (water activity of 0.96) was enhanced when complex medium, maltose, or glucose was added [22].
  • Strain CHA0-Rif(pME3424) overproduces Phl and Plt and displays improved biocontrol efficacy compared with CHA0-Rif [23].
  • These results indicate that clp is a global regulatory gene that controls biocontrol traits expressed by L. enzymogenes C3 [24].

Gene context of Pest Control, Biological

  • Here, we have studied the role of a MAPK gene, that for TmkA, in conidiation and antagonistic properties of a biocontrol strain of T. virens [25].
  • Culture supernatants of strain CHA0 inhibited egg hatching and induced mortality of M. incognita juveniles more strongly than did supernatants of aprA and gacA mutants, suggesting that AprA protease contributes to biocontrol [26].
  • We determined whether transgenic strain SJ3-4 of Trichoderma atroviride, which expresses the Aspergillus niger glucose oxidase-encoding gene, goxA, under a homologous chitinase (nag1) promoter had increased capabilities as a fungal biocontrol agent [27].
  • A gene (gluc78) encoding an antifungal glucan 1,3-beta-glucosidase was cloned from strain P1 of the biocontrol fungus Trichoderma atroviride (formerly T. harzianum) [28].
  • The pyr4 gene, encoding orotidine-5'-phosphate decarboxylase (OMP decarboxylase) from the biocontrol fungus Trichoderma harzianum, has been isolated by hybridization, using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-derived fragment as a probe [29].
