Antimicrobial peptides, which have been isolated from many bacteria, fungi, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates, are an important component of the natural defenses of most living organisms. The isolated peptides are very heterogeneous in length, sequence and structure, but most of them are small, cationic and amphipathic. These peptides exhibit(More)
Shoot cultures of 401 banana clones were conserved under slow growth conditions (16±1°C, 25μmol m−2 s−1). Storage duration-defined as 60% survival time of 20 shoot cultures of a clone-averaged 334 days. However, large differences occurred among the different genomic (sub)groups and even within the same (sub)group. East-African highland bananas and(More)
The succeptibility of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to the anti-microbial peptide, histatin 5, was tested after pre-growth in fermentable and non-fermentable carbon sources and in the absence or presence of the uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation, carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenylhydrazone (CCCP). S. cerevisiae was more resistant to histatin 5 when grown on a(More)
