Title PhD Student in Pharmacognosy Categories Academic Organization University of Bordeaux Location France Website https://www.bjonnh.net/share/bordeaux_phd_offer.pdf Contact firstname.lastname@example.org Job Information Supervision Supervisor: Prof. Pierre Waffo-Téguo (email@example.com) Co-supervisor: Dr. Caroline Rouger (firstname.lastname@example.org) Project description Crops contamination with mycotoxins leads to ca. 25% global losses each year. In Europe, cereals and grapevine are the crops most concerned by this issue, being affected by mycotoxins produced by Fusarium graminearum (deoxynivalenol, DON) and Aspergillus carbonarius (ochratoxin A, OTA) respectively. In an attempt to durably control these infections and to address societal and environmental challenges aiming at reducing the use of plant protection products (French national Ecophyto Plan, European directive 2009/128/EC), the StilDeTox project aims at exploiting the biological activity of phenolic extracts. Among phenolic compounds, stilbenes are highly involved in plant defense reactions against pathogens. Few studies report their antifungal properties, however preliminary promising results revealed their potential to reduce F. graminearum growth and DON production. In the interest of sustainable development, grape by-products, rich and abundant sources of stilbenoid, could be valued as a natural fungicide and anti-mycotoxin agent against pathogens contaminating wheat and grapevine. This PhD project will be organised in two modules: Module 1: Screening of stilbenoid extracts for their ability to inhibit the growth of toxicogenic fungi and their production of mycotoxins. The extracts will be obtained from various vine co-products and by different extraction methods. They will be evaluated in vitro for their antifungal (F. graminearum and A. carbonarius) and anti-mycotoxin (DON and OTA) activity. The biological assays will be conducted in the Research Unit Mycology and Food Safety (MycSA, UR 1264, INRA). An untargeted metabolomics study will be employed, using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MSn) data and molecular networks, to highlight compounds or combination of compounds that could be involved in the fungicidal and antimycotoxin effect. A database gathering the overall results will be built. Module 2: Identification of the molecules responsible for the bioactivity. After selecting the most promising extracts, a bioactivity-guided fractionation will be handled through LC and centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC). For each metabolite, bioactivity scores will be calculated to assist the bioguided fractionation. The isolated compounds will be characterised thanks to modern spectroscopic analyses (MS, NMR). Both an analytical method (LC-UV or LC-MS) and a molecular method (RT-QPCR targeting appropriate fungal genes) will be developed, to serve as quality control tests certifying the bioactivity of extracts.
