Abstract

This study shows that the superoxide radical (O), a direct indicator of oxidative stress, is involved in the differentiation of the phytopathogenic filamentous fungi , , and , shown by using superoxide dismutase (SOD) mimetics to decrease their sclerotial differentiation. The production rate of O and SOD levels in these fungi, as expected, were significantly lowered by the SOD mimetics, with concomitant decrease of the indirect indicator of oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation.
