Myrotoxins from a plant pathogenic isolate ofMyrothecium roridum
- 3 Downloads
An isolate ofM roridum (ATCC 52485) which is a potent pathogen to muskmelon was shown to produce a series of macrocyclic trichothecenes, the myrotoxins, heretofore found to be produced only by an. isolate ofM roridum which is a pathogen to tomato. The fact that these two isolates are virulent pathogens and both produce the same potent mycotoxins suggests that these novel trichothecenes may play an important role in the pathogenicity of the fungi.
