ComponentsCarlo Romagnoli  (Principal Investigator )
DescriptionThe research activity concerns in general plant biology and phytochemistry, in particular the study of natural and synthetic molecules, in relation to their ability to interfere with the fundamental cellular functions in some specific groups of microorganisms: in particular fungi. Part of the activity is focused on the isolation of endophytic fungi and their use in biotransformation. Schematically the surveys undertaken can be grouped as follows: 1) Search for new natural substances and synthetic antifungal activities and studies of morphofunctional alterations induced in dermatophytic and phytopathogens fungi of the most active compounds. 2) Phytochemical research. Isolation, phytochemical characterization of natural substances and their biological evaluation for a possible bioactive action. 3) Isolation of endophytic fungi as a potential tool for the identification of molecules of pharmaceutical interest.
