Citrus black spot (CBS) and post-bloom fruit drop (PFD), caused by Phyllosticta citricarpa and Colletotrichum abscissum, respectively, are two important citrus diseases worldwide. CBS depreciates the market value and prevents exportation of citrus fruits to Europe. PFD under favorable climatic conditions can cause the abscission of flowers, thereby reducing citrus production by 80%. An ecofriendly alternative to control plant diseases is the use of endophytic microorganisms, or secondary metabolites produced by them. Strain LGMF1631, close related to Diaporthe cf. heveae 1, was isolated from the medicinal plant Stryphnodendron adstringens and showed significant antimicrobial activity, in a previous study. In view of the potential presented by strain LGMF1631, and the absence of chemical data for secondary metabolites produced by D. cf. heveae, we decided to characterize the compounds produced by strain LGMF1631. Based on ITS, TEF1, and TUB phylogenetic analysis, strain LGMF1631 was confirmed to belong to D. cf. heveae 1. Chemical assessment of the fungal strain LGMF1631 revealed one new seco-dihydroisocoumarin [cladosporin B (1)] along with six other related, already known dihydroisocoumarin derivatives and one monoterpene [(-)-(1S,2R,3S,4R)-p-menthane-1,2,3-triol (8)]. Among the isolated metabolites, compound 5 drastically reduced the growth of both phytopathogens in vitro and completely inhibited the development of CBS and PFD in citrus fruits and flowers. In addition, compound 5 did not show toxicity against human cancer cell lines or citrus leaves, at concentrations higher than used for the inhibition of the phytopathogens, suggesting the potential use of (-)-(3R,4R)-cis-4-hydroxy-5-methylmellein (5) to control citrus diseases.

Endophytic fungi have been considered a rich source for bioactive secondary metabolites with novel chemical structures. A high diverse group of endophytes, isolated from different medicinal plants, belongs to the genus Diaporthe. In a previously study performed by our group the crude extract of strain LGMF1583 showed considerable antibacterial activity mainly against Gram-negative bacteria. Based on ITS phylogeny analysis, strain LGMF1583 was identified as belonging to Diaporthe genus and may represent a new species. In the present study, we described the new species Diporthe vochysiae based on multilocus phylogeny analysis and morphological characteristics. The species name refers to the host, from which strain LGMF1583 was isolated, the medicinal plant Vochysia divergens. In view of the biotechnological potential of strain LGMF1583, we have also characterized the secondary metabolites produced by D. vochysiae. Chemical assessment of the D. vochysiae LGMF1583 revealed two new carboxamides, vochysiamides A (1) and B (2), in addition to the known metabolite, 2,5-dihydroxybenzyl alcohol (3). In the biological activity analysis, vochysiamide B (2) displayed considerable antibacterial activity against the Gram-negative bacterium Klebsiella pneumoniae (KPC), a producer of carbapenemases, MIC of 80 µg/mL. Carbapenemases are considered a major antimicrobial resistance threat, and infections caused by KPC have been considered a public health problem worldwide, and new compounds with activity against this bacterium are nowadays even more required.
