Abstract
Black spot rot caused by Alternaria alternata is becoming a main postharvest disease on apple fruit. The objective of this study was to elucidate the antifungal efficiency of ursolic acid (UA) against A. alternata and its application in preserving apple fruit. The results showed that UA induced disturbance of membrane permeability and integrity, as well as intracellular ROS accumulation in A. alternata, result in the sabotaged morphology and...
