Two major proteins, alpha-sarcin and an antifungal polypeptide (AFP), are secreted by the mould Aspergillus giganteus MDH 18894 when it is cultured for 70-80 h. A third major protein is also found in the extracellular medium at 48-60 h, but it disappears as the culture proceeds. This protein has been isolated and characterized in terms of apparent molecular mass, electrophoretic and chromatographic behaviour, NH2-terminal primary structure, amino acid content, spectroscopical features… CONTINUE READING
