ARMESTO, Cecilia; MARTINS-MAIA, Fernanda Gonçalves; MONTEIRO, Fernando Pereira  e  ABREU, Mário Sobral de. GFP-fluorescent protein on the study of blister spot in coffee plants. Summa phytopathol. [online]. 2015, vol.41, n.2, pp.89-93. ISSN 0100-5405.

In Brazil, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is associated with a complex of symptoms in coffee culture. Although this pathogen had its pathogenesis observed and identified, its importance has still been questioned due to its several endophytic forms, raising doubts as to the real importance of the pathosystem. The aim of this study was to demonstrate, by using an isolate transformed with the gene gfp, the infection and colonization capability of C. gloeosporioides in coffee seedlings. After the fourth day of inoculation, manifestation of symptoms as punctual necrosis could be observed, which progressed during the evaluation period, culminating in the death of seedlings. Epifluorescence microscopy confirmed the presence of the pathogen in the seedlings, as well as the visualization of internal colonization of tissues, acervulus formation and conidium production, confirming that it was responsible for the observed symptoms.
