Bioinformatics Prediction of Polyketide Synthase Gene Clusters from Mycosphaerella fijiensis.

PLoS One 2016 7;11(7):e0158471. Epub 2016 Jul 7.

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina, 27695-7612, United States of America.

Mycosphaerella fijiensis, causal agent of black Sigatoka disease of banana, is a Dothideomycete fungus closely related to fungi that produce polyketides important for plant pathogenicity. We utilized the M. fijiensis genome sequence to predict PKS genes and their gene clusters and make bioinformatics predictions about the types of compounds produced by these clusters. Read More

Mycosphaerella musicola Identified as the Only Pathogen of the Sigatoka Disease Complex Present in Minas Gerais State, Brazil.

Plant Dis 2013 Dec;97(12):1537-1543

Departamento de Fitopatologia, Universidade Federal de Viçosa, 36570-000 Viçosa, MG, Brazil.

A thorough assessment of the distribution of Mycosphaerella spp. associated with banana in Minas Gerais State, Brazil, was conducted after Mycosphaerella fijiensis was first reported to occur in this region in 2005. From 2009 to 2011, 80 fields located in 20 municipalities including the same fields where the disease was first reported were sampled. Read More

Microsatellite markers for the fungal banana pathogens Mycosphaerella fijiensis, Mycosphaerella musicola and Mycosphaerella eumusae.

Mol Ecol Resour 2008 Sep;8(5):1121-5

UMR BGPI, CIRAD, TA A 54/K, 34 398 Montpellier Cedex 5, France, Genoscope, Centre National de séquençage, 2 Rue Gaston Crémieux, 91057 Evry, France.

We developed a total of 50 microsatellite markers for the three fungal pathogens causing the most important leaf spot diseases of banana: 32 loci for Mycosphaerella fijiensis are presented, and nine loci each for Mycosphaerella musicola and Mycosphaerella eumusae. All these loci were polymorphic within each species on a sample of isolates collected from various locations around the world. Within M. Read More

Mycosphaerella fijiensis, Causal Agent of Black Sigatoka of Musa spp. Found in Puerto Rico and Identified by Polymerase Chain Reaction.

Plant Dis 2006 May;90(5):684

University of Florida, IFAS, Tropical Research and Education Center, Homestead.

Black Sigatoka, also known as black leaf streak, is caused by Mycosphaerella fijiensis Morelet (anamorph Pseudocercospora fijiensis (Morelet) Deighton). It is the most significant disease of bananas and plantains (Musa spp.) because most of the economically important cultivars of exported and staple commodities are highly susceptible. Read More

Development of a transformation system for Mycosphaerella pathogens of banana: a tool for the study of host/pathogen interactions.

FEMS Microbiol Lett 2001 Feb;195(1):9-15

Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-1801, USA.

A genetic transformation system has been developed for three Mycosphaerella pathogens of banana and plantain (Musa spp.). Mycosphaerella fijiensis and Mycosphaerella musicola, the causal agents of black and yellow Sigatoka, respectively, and Mycosphaerella eumusae, which causes Septoria leaf spot of banana, were transformed with a construct carrying a synthetic gene encoding green fluorescent protein (GFP).
