Table 3 Growth comparison of P. ultimum DAOM BR 144 on different carbon sources and the pH of the medium after 7 days

From: Genome sequence of the necrotrophic plant pathogen Pythium ultimum reveals original pathogenicity mechanisms and effector repertoire

  DAOM BR144
Carbon source Mycelium density pH on day 7
No carbon - 5.1
25 mM D-glucose +++ 2.9
25 mM D-fructose +++ 2.9
25 mM D-xylose - 5
25 mM L-arabinose - 5
25 mM cellobiose +++ 4
25 mM sucrose +++ 3.2
1% cellulose - 5.2
1% birch wood xylan - 4.7
1% soluble starch +++ 3.5
1% citrus pectin* + 5
  1. The symbols indicate poor growth (+), moderate growth (++), good growth (+++), very good growth (++++), or growth less than or equal to the no-carbon medium (-). The data are the average of the two duplicates used for this experiment.
