The distribution and host range of the banana fusarium wilt fungus, fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense , in Asia
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Fusarium oxysporum formae specialis cubense (Foc) is a soil-borne fungus that causes Fusarium wilt, which is considered to be the most destructive disease of bananas. The fungus is believed to have evolved with its host ...
Assessing genotype-by-environment interactions in aspergillus ear rot and pre-harvest aflatoxin accumulation in maize inbred lines
Aspergillus flavus, causal agent of the Aspergillus ear rot (AER) of maize, also produces aflatoxins that cause aflatoxicosis in humans and livestock. Ten maize inbred lines were evaluated in replicated trials in two ...
Characterisation of South African isolates of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense from Cavendish bananas
(Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), 2010-04)
Fusarium wilt, caused by the soil-borne fungus Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense (Foc), is a serious vascular disease of bananas in most subtropical and tropical regions of the world. Twenty-four vegetative compatibility ...
Fusarium spp. and levels of fumonisins in maize produced by subsistence farmers in South Africa
(Academy of Science of South Africa, 2011)
Fusarium spp. produce fumonisins – mycotoxins that are of importance to maize production in South Africa. Fumonisins have been associated with human oesophageal cancer and cause various diseases in animals that are of ...
Transcriptome profiling of resistant and susceptible cavendish banana roots following inoculation with Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense tropical race 4
(BioMed Central, 2012-08)
Abstract Background Fusarium wilt, caused by the fungal pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense tropical race 4 (Foc TR4), is considered the most lethal disease of Cavendish bananas ...
Pathogenicity associated genes in Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense race 4
(Academy of Science of South Africa, 2013)
Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc) is a fungus that infects banana roots and causes a destructive plant disease called Fusarium wilt. Foc consists of three pathogenic races (Foc races 1, 2 and 4), classified according ...
Development of a hydrolysis probe-based real-time assay for the detection of tropical strains of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense race 4
(Public Library of Science, 2017-02-08)
Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc) is one of the most important threats to global banana production. Strategies to control the pathogen are lacking, with plant resistance offering the only long-term solution, if sources ...
Contamination of bananas with beauvericin and fusaric acid produced by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Background Fusarium wilt, caused by the fungal pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc), is one of the most destructive diseases of banana. Toxins produced by Foc have been proposed to play an important role ...
