Title: Effect of lauricidin and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid on growth of nine hymenomycetous fungi.

Author: Li, C. Y.; Aho, Paul E.;

Date: 1984

Source: Res. Note PNW-RN-411. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 7 p

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Growth of nine wood-decaying basidiomycetes was measured on media containing 10, 100, and 1,000 parts per million (p/m) Lauricidin with or without 0.1 percent ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). EDTA alone significantly reduced the growth of all fungi tested. Lauricidin at 1,000 p/m significantly retarded the growth of all fungi except two: Ganoderma applanatum and Armillariella mellea. The addition of EDTA to 1,000 p/m Lauricidin completely inhibited Echinodontium tinctorium, Fomitopsis officinalis, and Perenniporia subacida. These compounds show promise as constituents of tree-wound dressings.

Keywords: decay fungi (wood), lipids, fatty acids, wounds, tree injury
