- ... Fusarium culmorum can cause Fusarium head blight (FHB) disease of cereals, resulting in yield loss and contamination of grain with the trichothecene mycotoxin, deoxynivalenol (DON). In this study, we compared the efficacy of a biological control agent (Pseudomonas fluorescens strain MKB 158) with the biochemical chitosan (the deacetylated derivative of chitin) in controlling FHB disease of wheat a ...

- ... A glycopeptide elicitor prepared from germ tubes of the rust fungus Puccinia graminis Pers. f. sp. tritici Erikss. & Henn (Pgt),as well as chitin oligosaccharides, chitosan, and methyl jasmonate (MJ) stimulated lipoxygenase (LOX) activity (E.C. 126.96.36.199) in wheat (Triticum aestivum) leaves. Immunoblot analysis using anti-LOX antibodies revealed the induction of 92- and 103-kD LOX species after P ...
