Cytotoxicity of Ustilago maydis isolated from maize
Summary.

The main pathogen of maize are fungi of the genus Fusarium. Besides phytopathogenic Fusarium, Ustilago maydis is another fungal genus affecting maize yields, causing lesions, known as smut. The objective of the study was evaluation of the cytotoxicity of Ustilago maydis isolated from maize. Nine Ustilago maydis strains were selected to a detailed evaluation of their cytotoxicity using a 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) test. Ustilago maydis strains showed medium and high cytotoxicity compared to control. High levels of cytotoxicity of Ustilago maydis may be indicative of their toxigenic potential.

Key words: maize, Ustilago maydis, smut, MTT test, SK cells
