Abstract:


Background: Coniothyrium had great potential in controlling Sclerotinia diseases in green houses and field with a high specificity. An important and steadily increasing number of natural products have been isolated from Coniothyrium spp, and the biological activities have not yet been fully elaborated.

Objective: To promote the development of Coniothyrium source.

Method: To analysis and sum up the literatures concerned.

Results: The secondary metabolites of Coniothyrium mainly consisted of polyketides, polyaromatic compounds, and simple aromatic compounds, which have strong biological activity.

Conclusion: Coniothyrium spp. as a source of biologically active metabolites is especially signifcant and ensures interest on this subject for years to come.

Keywords:

Coniothyrium, bioactivities, metabolites, biosynthetic pathway, polyketides, polyaromatic compound, simple aromatic compound.
