Mycoparasitic abilities of co-transformants. The antagonistic activity of co-transformants 3/3 and 4/5 (with ectopic integration of the tga3Q207L gene) and co-transformant 2/1 (with homologous integration of the tga3Q207L gene) in comparison to the T. atroviride wild-type was assessed in plate confrontation assays using R. solani as host fungus. While after four days of incubation at 28°C all strains showed a similar onset of mycoparasitism, after eight and 14 days the co-transformants exhibited more advanced overgrowth and host lysis compared to the wild-type.
