    Endophytes Identification: morphological methods Endophytes Identification: morphological methods Presentation Transcript

    • Montana State University
    • Pestalotiopsis in the World’s Rainforests
    • Pestalotiopsis microspora an Endophytic Fungus 1. One of the most frequently observed endophytes. 2. Found in all rainforests and most plant species. 3. It has hundreds of synonyms. 4. Exists as many biotypes and makes hundreds of natural products. 5. Some biotypes are easily genetically transformed.
    • Pestalotiopsis microspora (culture and spores)
    • The Acervulus and Conidia of Pestalotiopsis microspora
    • Pestalosphaeria hansenii on Barley
    • The Perithecium and Ascopsores of Pestalosphaeria hansensii, Perfect Stage of Pestalotiopsis microspora
    • Picking the Spines of Cholla Cactus To Support the Bioassay Chemicals
    • Developing a Bioassay for Sex Inducing Chemicals found in Plants
    • Ability of Various Fractions of T cuspidata to Induce the formation of fruitng structures
    • The Induced Perithecia of Pestalosphaeria
    • Protoplasts of P. microspora Ready for Genetic Transformation
    • Selection of Hygromycin Resistant Isolates
    • Methylene chloride extracts of P. microspora isolates from around the world
    • Sepik River Area of Papua New Guinea
    • Sepik River Area of Papua New Guinea
    • Crystals of Pestacin
    • Pestacin-a Powerful Antioxidant
    • Isopestacin- an antioxidant
    • Sampling trees for Endophytic Fungi in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea
    • Pestalotiopsis jesterii, a fungal endophyte
    • Conidiospores of P. jesterii

    • Huli Wigmen of Papua New Guinea
    • Pestalotiopsis microspora as an endophytic rainforest fungus has made the “big time” as a producer of new natural products
    • The Orchid -Dendrochilum sp.
    • Solid State NMR of Ambuic Acid
    • Ambuic Acid is produced by various isolates of Pestalotiopsis microspora obtained in various rainforest locations around the world
