Functional diversity of Bisifusarium domesticum and the newly described Nectriaceae cheese-associated species

Abstract

Bisifusarium domesticum is among the main molds used during cheese-making for its “anticollanti” property that prevents the sticky smear defect of some cheeses. Previously, numerous cheese rinds were sampled to create a working collection and not only did we isolate B. domesticum but we observed a completely unexpected diversity of “Fusarium-like” fungi belonging to the Nectriaceae family. Four novel cheese-associated species belonging to two genera were described: Bisifusarium allantoides, Bisifusarium penicilloides, Longinectria lagenoides, and Longinectria verticilliformis. In this study, we thus aimed at determining their potential functional impact during cheese-making by evaluating their lipolytic and proteolytic activities as well as their capacity to produce volatile (HS-Trap GC-MS) and non-volatile secondary metabolites (HPLC & LC-Q-TOF). While all isolates were proteolytic and lipolytic, higher activities were observed at 12°C for several B. domesticum, B. penicilloides and L. lagenoides isolates, which is in agreement with typical cheese ripening conditions. Using volatilomics, we identified multiple cheese-related compounds, especially ketones and alcohols. B. domesticum and B. penicilloides isolates showed higher aromatic potential although compounds of interest were also produced by B. allantoides and L. lagenoides. These species were also lipid producers. Finally, an untargeted extrolite analysis suggested a safety status of these strains as no known mycotoxins were produced and revealed the production of potential novel secondary metabolites. Biopreservation tests performed with B. domesticum suggested that it may be an interesting candidate for biopreservation applications in the cheese industry in the future
