Nematicidal Substances from Fungi

Author(s): Guohong Li, Keqin Zhang, Jianping Xu, Jinyan Dong, Yajun Liu.

Abstract:

This review summarizes the 179 compounds from fungi that have shown to possess nematicidal activities. These compounds belong to diverse chemical groups and they are mainly isolated from a variety of deuteromycete, ascomycete and basidiomycete fungi. Some of them have been patented as nematicidal agents. We review and classify these compounds based on their structural types. Their nematicidal activities are described and their potential roles in natural environments and in the biocontrol of nematodes are discussed.

Keywords: Nematode, fungus, compound, nematicidal activity, biocontrol
