CERON RINCON, LAURA E. et al. Growth and Development of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides f. alatae During Culture in Liquid Medium. Acta biol.Colomb. [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.1, pp.99-109. ISSN 0120-548X.

Some characteristics known as virulence factors for Colletotrichum sp. genus, like: weight of the produced mycelium, sporulation, poligalacturonase activity and pH medium were evaluated during the growth of C. gloeosporioides f. alatae in three liquid medium commonly used for fungi culture (Czapeck, Martin broth and potato broth) and additionally (Czapeck) with yam extract as the only source of carbon. After of 17 days of growth, maximum values were obtained for the above parameters in the last medium, compared with others growth media evaluated. The implemented medium with yam extract, supply nutritional requirements of the pathogen for the development of characteristic factors related with mechanism of infections that may play a role in the pathogenesis.

Keywords : Anthracnosis; yam; virulence factor; Colletotrichum sp.; Dioscorea sp..
