Nematicidal Activities of 4-Hydroxyphenylacetic Acid and Oidiolactone D Produced by the Fungus Oidiodendron sp.

Kouhei Ohtani, Shozo Fujioka, Atsumi Shimada and Yasuo Kimura

Two nematicides, 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid (4-HPA) (1) and oidiolactone D (2), were isolated from cultures of the fungus Oidiodendron sp., and their structures were identified by spectroscopic analyses. Compound 2 showed nematicidal activities against the root-lesion nematode, Pratylenchus penetrans, and the pine wood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus. Compound 1 was also active against these two nematodes but to a lesser extent.
