Abstract

SASAKI, Selma H. et al. Strains of Lentinula edodes suppress growth of phytopathogenic fungi and inhibit Alagoas serotype of vesicular stomatitis virus. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2001, vol.32, n.1, pp. 52-55. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822001000100012.

Four Lentinula edodes strains (Le10, 46, K2, Assai) were assessed for their antagonistic effect on four filamentous fungus species of agricultural importance (Helminthosporium euphorbiae, Helminthosporium sp, Fusarium solani and Phomopsis sojae) and on Alagoas serotype of Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (VSA). The L. edodes strains studied had variable effects on the filamentous fungi and on VSA. The K2 and Le10 strains were antagonistic on the fungi assessed and the 46 and K2 strains were efficient on the Vesicular Stomatitis Virus. The results widened the list of beneficial effects of L. edodes on the control and prevention of animal pathogenic virus and filamentous fungi.

Keywords : Phytopathogenic fungi; shiitake; inhibition; Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (Alagoas).
