Isolation and characterization of Neosartorya fischeri antifungal protein (NFAP).

A novel 6.6 kDa antifungal peptide (NFAP) from the culture supernatant of the mold, Neosartorya fischeri (anamorf: Aspergillus fischerianus), and its encoding gene were isolated in this study. NFAP is a small, basic and cysteine-rich protein consisting of 57 amino acid residues. It shows 37.9-50% homology to similar proteins described in literature from… CONTINUE READING
