JoF, Vol. 6, Pages 132: Phylogenetic Species of Paracoccidioides spp. Isolated from Clinical and Environmental Samples in a Hyperendemic Area of Paracoccidioidomycosis in Southeastern Brazil

August 11, 2020 0

Summary: Paracoccidioides brasiliensis complex and P. lutzii are the etiological agents of paracoccidioidomycosis. The geographic distribution of these species in South America is still poorly comprehended. Fifty samples of Paracoccidioides spp. were genotyped, with 46 clinical isolates predominantly isolated in the geographic area of Ribeirão Preto, SP, and four environmental […]

JoF, Vol. 6, Pages 131: Exploring the Extracellular Macromolecular Composition of Crude Extracts of Penicillium rubens Strain 212 for Elucidation Its Mode of Action as a Biocontrol Agent

August 10, 2020 0

Summary: Penicillium rubens strain 212 (PO212) acts as an inducer of systemic resistance in tomato plants. The effect of crude extracellular extracts of PO212 on the soil-borne pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici has been evaluated. Evidence of the involvement of soluble, thermo-labile, and proteinase-inactivated macromolecules present in PO212 crude […]

JoF, Vol. 6, Pages 128: Natural Products from Endophytic Fungi Associated with Rubiaceae Species

August 7, 2020 0

Summary: This review presents the chemical diversity and pharmacological properties of secondary metabolites produced by endophytic fungi associated with various genera of Rubiaceae. Several classes of natural products are described for these endophytes, although, this study highlights the importance of some metabolites, which are involved in antifungal, antibacterial, anti-protozoal activities; […]

JoF, Vol. 6, Pages 126: Entomopathogenic Fungi as Endophytes for Biological Control of Subterranean Termite Pests Attacking Cocoa Seedlings

August 5, 2020 0

Summary: This study was conducted in the scope of developing a sustainable effective approach against subterranean termite pests using entomopathogenic and endophytic fungus-based biopesticides. Termites, Odontotermes spp. workers, were tested for their susceptibility to 15 entomopathogenic fungal isolates through the direct spraying of conidia suspensions at 1 × 108 conidia/mL. […]

JoF, Vol. 6, Pages 125: Comparative Study of Newer and Established Methods of Diagnosing Coccidioidal Meningitis

August 4, 2020 0

Summary: Meningitis is the most devastating form of coccidioidomycosis. A convenient, rapid diagnostic method could result in early treatment and avoid many meningitis complications. We studied cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples in patients with documented coccidioidal meningitis, and controls, with complement fixation (CF), immunodiffusion (ID) (the “classical” assays), lateral flow assays […]

JoF, Vol. 6, Pages 123: Fungal Endophytic Community Associated with Guarana (Paullinia cupana Var. Sorbilis): Diversity Driver by Genotypes in the Centre of Origin

July 31, 2020 0

Summary: Guarana plant is a native of the Amazon region. Due to its high amount of caffeine and tannins, the seed has medicinal and stimulating properties. The guarana industry has grown exponentially in recent years; however, little information is available about associated mycobiota, particularly endophytic fungi. The present study aimed […]
