In the present study, the most potent endophyte
Further, three 6-mm mycelial plugs of each endophyte
were transferred to 125-mL Erlenmeyer flasks containing 50 mL of Manachini's solution (Manachini, Fortina, & Parini, 1987) comprising 2 g [L.
albicans at effective concentrations (20 [micro]g/mL) indicating the ability of the endophyte
to be utilized for pharmaceutical preparations.
The highest effect of seed inoculation with bacterial endophyte
on sprouts growth was found in treatment of 20% (v/v) inoculum (2.
Adaptability to the environment of the plant body of seeds infected with the tall fescue endophyte
may be strengthened, but it has been reported that they produce alkaloid toxic materials, and cattle eating tall fescue infected with endophytes
, changes body temperature, occur reproductive disorders and subsequently reduced daily milk yield (Bouton, 2002; Walls and Jacobson, 1970; Hohenboken, 1991; McMurphy, 1990).
Identification of endophyte
Aspergillus terreus (JAS-2)
A fungal endophyte
of Trichachneinsularis belonging to Psedocercosporella.
has been described as a dark septate endophyte
and wood-decaying fungus (Saikkonen 2007, Tian et al.
Most tall fescue is infected with a fungus living within the plant, which is referred to as an endophyte
Like other meadow fescues, it has an endophyte
(symbiotic fungus) that gives it some degree of environmental protection.
however, many definitions for endophyte
have been used (see
symbiosis between tall fescue (Festuca arundinaceae Shreb.
