Effect of inoculum morphology on production of Nigerloxin by solid state fermentation

Nigerloxin (2-amido-3-hydroxy-6-methoxy-5-methyle-4-(prop-1’enyl) benzoic acid) is a Lipoxygenase and Aldose reductase inhibitor produced by Aspergillus niger MTCC 5116. It is produced only under solid state fermentation (SSF) and the inoculum required for the inhibitor production is developed in submerged condition. As this is a newly discovered enzyme inhibitor with potential commercial success against diabetic...

Effect of hot-water treatments in vitro on conidial germination and mycelial growth of Colletotrichum musae isolates

Anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum musae is the most important postharvest disease of banana fruit. The present study was conducted to evaluate the sensitivity of C. musae isolates to hot water treatment in vitro. The effect of hot water treatment (HWT) in vitro was determined by placing conidial suspensions and plugs of agar with mycelia of 12 single spore isolates of C. musae in hot water bath at 45, 50 and 55°C...
