Antimicrobial activity assays and LCMS-PCA of fractionated fungus comb extracts. (a) Mean (±SE; n = 3) zones of inhibition (mm2) of Trichoderma sp. (grey) and Beauveria bassiana (black) when exposed to different concentrations of fractionated fungus comb extracts. Fractions were obtained by SPE eluting with 80% and 100% acetonitrile (ACN) and 100% acetone (ACE). Colonies of origin of fungus combs are indicated at the bottom of each panel. (b) PCA plot (PC1 vs PC2) of LCMS data for fractionated fungus comb extracts from 12 colonies of M. natalensis, Odontotermes sp. and Odontotermes cf. badius. Colonies labelled with colony ID numbers.
