Bioassay-guided Isolation of a Natural Product Inhibitor of Epicoccum Nigrum to Combat Citrus Greening Disease

Bioassay-guided Isolation of a Natural Product Inhibitor of Epicoccum Nigrum to Combat Citrus Greening Disease
Research paper
Description: 
Huanglongbing disease (HLB), commonly known as citrus greening disease, is a bacterial infection that impacts citrus trees across the United States. Citrus greening is caused by Candidatus
Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas), a bacterium that blocks sugar flow through the phloem, leading to unprofitable harvests. In this study, we used bioassay-guided isolation and organic structure
elucidation to identify an inhibitor produced by Epicoccum nigrum, an endophytic fungus isolated from citrus trees residing in infected groves.
