Resumo: Metschnikowia andauensis NCYC 3728 (PBC-2) is an effective antagonist against the postharvest pathogens Penicillium expansum, Botrytis cinerea and Rhizopus stolofiner on pome fruits, however its mode of action is unknown. The ability of this strain to produce inhibitory compounds in 4 distinct media (PDA, NYDA, YPDA, CJA) at 3 temperatures (1, 25, 30 ºC), was investigated. It was also assayed the competition for iron in media with different iron concentrations and characterized the capability of PBC-2 produce and secrete fungal cell wall lytic enzymes, like chitinase, protease, and glucanase in a culture media with fungal pathogen cell wall as unique carbon source. M. andauensis PBC-2 did not show any inhibition zone to cope pathogens in any of the tested media. The results obtained in this study suggest that the production and secretion of lytic enzymes is not the main or more important mode of action of the new biocontrol agent PBC-2, since the production of chitinase was observed only past 5 and 7 d of incubation, and the production of -1.3-glucanases and proteases was not observed, which mean that the biocontrol agent PBC-2 have more than one mechanism of action.
