Microbial Lipopeptides in agriculture: A review

Arthee R, SR Shri Rangasami, Murugaragavan R, Marimuthu P and SS Rakesh
Resistance to chemical pesticides is a major worry in agriculture, and lipopeptides may be able to help. These compounds have activity against a variety of phytopathogens and have the potential to be genetically modified. A lipid tail is connected to a short linear or cyclic oligopeptide in lipopeptide biosurfactants (LPs). They're made mostly in the cyclized form by fungus and bacteria, and they've gotten a lot of press for their antibacterial, cytotoxic, anticancer, immunosuppressant, and surfactant capabilities. Cyclic lipopeptides (CLPs) are a type of biosurfactant produced by a variety of bacteria known as plant-beneficial bacteria. Bacillus and Pseudomonas are used as biocontrol agents, and they are also the most well-known for producing a variety of structurally unique and multifunctional CLPs with strong biological properties. Plant-protection-related activities Bacterial CLPs are powerful biosurfactants that have considerable membrane disrupting properties. Their antibacterial action has been thoroughly described in the context of biocontrol via phytopathogen suppression.
