Gibberella zeae, também conhecida como Fusarium graminearum em seu estado anamorfo, é um fungo ascomiceto patógeno que causa a fusariose do trigo. FG Organism. Gibberella zeae (strain PH-1 / ATCC MYA / FGSC / NRRL ) (Wheat head blight fungus) (Fusarium graminearum). We constructed a genetic linkage map of Gibberella zeae (Fusarium graminearum) by crossing complementary nitrate-nonutilizing (nit) mutants of G. zeae.

The development and differentiation of Gibberella zeae anamorph: Fusarium graminearum during colonization of wheat.

Because it is a major plant pathogen and a mycotoxin gibberella zeae, it receives a lot of study.

Gibberella-zeae - Bayer - Crop Science

Additionally, it has other useful features that characterize gibberella zeae organisms. Gibberella zeae is homothallic - it can undergo sexual development and reproduction without needing to encounter an opposite mating type.

It can be induced very readily to undergo sexual development in the lab, by the somewhat improbable expedient of growing gibberella zeae on carrot agar, scraping the surface mycelia off, and rubbing it with a weak detergent a 2.

It develops very predictably, with wide, dikaryotic hyphae forming 24 gibberella zeae after sexual development has been induced with Tween.

At 48 hours, perithecial initials are present. At 96 hours, immature perithecia are present, gibberella zeae the purple pigmentation beginning to be visible and with paraphyses inside the perithecium. And at hours, the perithecia are mature, the paraphyses have collapsed, and multiseptate ascospores are present.

What does this matter? Well, since ascospores are gibberella zeae principal source of new infections in the field, understanding ascospore development is important in understanding - and maybe preventing - disease spread.

The effect of amino acids on the production of ochratoxin A in chemically defined media. Characterization of gibberella zeae isomers of 8'-hydroxyzearalenone and other derivatives of zearalenone.

The anamorph survives as hyphae in crop debris colonized parasitically or saprophytically during crop senescence. The pathogen may be seed-borne and gibberella zeae be also transmitted by birds and insects which favor infections also by physical injury of the plants.

Gibberella zeae (headblight of maize)

Barley Infections on barley are not always visible in the field. Similar to wheat, infected spikelets show a browning or water-soaked appearance. The infected kernels display a tan to dark brown discoloration.

During gibberella zeae periods of wetness, pink to salmon-orange spore masses can be seen on the infected spikelets and kernels. Warm soil can cause head blight to occur after emergence, and crown and basal culm rot can gibberella zeae observed in later gibberella zeae development.

  • Occurrence

The fungus enters the plant mostly through the flowers; however, the infection process is complex and the complete course of colonization of the host has not been described. Germ tubes seem not to be able to penetrate the hard, waxy surface of the lemma and palea which protect the flower.

The fungus enters the plant through natural openings such as stomates, and needs soft tissue such gibberella zeae the flowers, anthers and embryo gibberella zeae infect the plant.


Upon germination of the spores on the anthers and the surface of the developing kernel, hyphae gibberella zeae the epicarp and spread through the seed coat.
