Abstract:

Today, endophytic fungi have become new sources of industrially useful enzymes such as cellulases, chitinases, lipases, amylases and proteases. When endophytes reside on the plant surface, they produce enzymes to hydrolyze plant cell walls. Therefore, these enzymes can also suppress plant pathogen activities directly and are capable of degrading the cell walls of fungi. In dual plate assay fungal endophytes inhibited Fusarium solani; few isolates were inhibitory towards Ganoderma lividense and Colletotrichum demati. Microbial enzymes are also biotechnologically important products employed in biotechnology, agriculture, and the pharmaceutical, photographic and food industries.
