Grey mold disease is one of these postharvest decays. Especially grapes are infected by Botrytis cinerea known as a causal agent of the grey mold disease. Some fungicides are used to control this disease. However, they cause funcide- resistant strains of the pathogens and make hazardous for human health and environmental safety. Therefore, The killer yeasts are considered as promising alternative antifungal agents among other biocontrol agents. Pichia anomala which is a killer yeast secretes the K5 type yeast killer protein called Panomycocin. The K5 type yeast killer protein has exo-β-1,3 glucanase activity and is stable at pH’s and temperatures appropriate for its biocontrol usage. The goal of the research is to determine the inhibition effect of the K5 type yeast killer protein on B. cinerea strains including type strain B. cinerea (DSMZ 5145) isolated from Italy and other 5 B. cinerea strains isolated from different fields in Tekirdağ. This inhibition activity of the K5 type yeast killer protein was known from broth microdilution assay based on CLSI (Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institue) M38-A and found to be highly effective on B. cinerea strains. The difference of the growth inhibition of B. cinerea strains in 96-well plates was determined with inverted microscope after 72 hours. The K5 type yeast killer protein with exo-β-1,3 glucanase activity resulted in vi physiological and morphological changes in the hyphae by causing coagulation and destruction of the protoplasm. The most effective growth inhibition was observed with 2048µg/ml of the K5 type yeast killer protein. MIC2 value of the K5 type yeast killer protein was 512µg/ml. The results showed that P. anomala secreting the K5 type yeast killer protein would be used as a biocontrol agent for prevention of grey mold disease in grape fields.

Investigation of the Ligand Binding Characteristics of Staphylococcus aureus NorA Efflux Pump
Işık , Esra Büşra; Serçinoğlu, Onur (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi Enformatik Enstitüsü; 2022-10)
Staphylococcus aureus is a gram-positive bacterial pathogen which is highly adaptive to environmental conditions and causes various disorders. Excessive usage of antibiotics may result in development of antibiotic resistance in S. aureus. One of the resistance mechanisms is increase in the activity of transmembrane multi-drug efflux pumps. NorA is the most studied efflux pump in S. aureus, which belongs to Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS). NorA has been shown to contribute to resistance against a variety...
Analysis of cellulase and polyphenol oxidase production by southern pine beetle associated fungi
Valiev, Abduvali; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Klepzig, Kier D. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-09-01)
In this study, the production of extracellular enzymes by fungi associated with southern pine beetle was investigated for the first time. Cellulase and polyphenol oxidase production were analyzed for three beetle associated fungi. Only the mutualistic symbiont Entomocorticium sp. A was found to produce cellulases and polyphenol oxidase. In time course analyses of cellulase production in batch cultures, Entomocorticium sp. A showed maximum activity of 0.109 U/ml and 0.141 U/ml for total cellulase and endoglu...

Background: Total soluble proteome alterations of white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium in response to different doses (25, 50 and 100 mu M) of Pb (II) were characterized by 2DE in combination with MALDI-TOF-MS.
Determination of malathion and diazinon resistance by sequencing the Md alpha E7 gene from Guatemala, Colombia, Manhattan, and Thailand housefly (Musca domestica L.) strains
Taskin, V; Kence, M; Göçmen, Birşen (2004-04-01)
Organophosphate (OP) insecticides (parathion/diazinon) resistance in housefly (Musca domestica L.) is associated with the change in carboxylesterase activity. The product of alphaE7 gene, which is a member of alpha-esterase gene cluster, is probably playing a role in detoxyfication of the xenobiotic esters. In parathion/diazinon resistant M. domestica species Gly(137) to Asp substitution was found in the active center of the product of alphaE7 gene. In malathion (an OP) resistant M. domestica strains Trp(25...
