  • The Mechanism of Action of Pterostilbene in Xinjiang Wine Grape Against the Growth of Geotrichum citri-aurantii
    Food Biotechnology, 2016
    Co-Authors: Qingjun Kong, Xiao-dong Zheng, Lidan Tu, Zhidong Wang

    Abstract:

    ABSTRACTPterostilbene controlled the growth of Geotrichum citri-aurantii effectively through experiments of Arthroconidium germination on agar plate, which displayed a strong antifungal activity. Observations using light microscope, scanning electron showed that the morphology and inner structure of the G. citri-aurantii treated with the pterostilbene changed notably. Some of the cells were abnormal or lysed. In order to further clarify the molecular mechanism of action, we examined the binding properties exerted by the pterostilbene on DNA and RNA of G. citri-aurantii fungal cells. Results showed that DNA and RNA of the G. citri-aurantii fungal cells were degraded by the pterostilbene. Moreover, three differentially expressed apoptosis genes of fungi were further examined by semi-quantitative RT-PCR. The results indicated that pterostilbene could cause the expression of up-regulated genes involved in RLM1, RTG1, and RTG3, of which the former two genes were significantly up-regulated.

  • In vitro and in vivo antifungal activity of a water‐dilutable cassia oil microemulsion against Geotrichum citri‐aurantii
    Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2012
    Co-Authors: Shi-Xiang Xu, Yi Chen Li, Hui Zhang, Xiao-dong Zheng

    Abstract:

    BACKGROUND: Recently, food-grade microemulsions have been of increasing interest to researchers and have shown great potential in industrial applications. In this study a food-grade water-dilutable microemulsion system with cassia oil as oil, ethanol as cosurfactant, Tween 20 as surfactant and water was developed and its antifungal activity in vitro and in vivo against Geotrichum citri-aurantii was assessed.

    RESULTS: The phase diagram results confirmed the feasibility of forming a water-dilutable microemulsion based on cassia oil. One microemulsion formulation, cassia oil/ethanol/Tween 20 = 1:3:6 (w/w/w), was selected with the capability to undergo full dilution with water. The average particle size was 6.3 nm. The in vitro antifungal experiments showed that the microemulsion inhibited fungal growth on solid medium and prevented Arthroconidium germination in liquid medium and that cassia oil had stronger activity when encapsulated in the microemulsion. The in vivo antifungal experiments indicated that the water-dilutable microemulsion was effective in preventing postharvest diseases of citrus fruits caused by G. citri-aurantii.

    CONCLUSION: The results of this study suggest a promising utilisation of water-dilutable microemulsions based on essential oils for the control of postharvest diseases. Copyright © 2012 Society of Chemical Industry
