Secreted phospholipase B is a proven virulence factor for the pathogenic fungus Cryptococcus neoformans and exhibits three phospholipase activities in the one protein. These are phospholipase B (PLB), lysophospholipase (LPL), and lysophospholipase transacylase (LPTA). Our aim was to investigate the feasibility of using this enzyme as a target for antifungal(More)
A series of bis(pyridinium)alkanes have been prepared and their antifungal activity, haemolytic activity and ability to inhibit fungal phospholipase B1 have been investigated, together with those of the commercially available antiseptics octenidine and dequalinium. Removal of the amino substituents from the pyridinium rings resulted in a significant(More)
