Proteomic Approaches to Understand Trichoderma Biocontrol Mechanisms and Plant Interactions

Author(s): Rosa Hermosa, Sheridan L. Woo, Matteo Lorito, Enrique Monte.


Trichoderma is an ascomycete fungal genus including species with a significant impact on agriculture and industrial processes. The first application of the proteome technology was carried out to extract and separate cell wall associated proteins of T. reesei. Following this work several studies performed on the proteome of different strains of T. atroviride, T. asperellum or T. harzianum interacting with pathogens and plants have provided many novel data that improve our understanding of the agricultural and biotechnological value of these fungi.
